eSports Betting Tips: CS:GO IEM Shanghai 2018

July 31st 2018, 6:19pm, By: andyrosos

We have found a few winners at decent prices in Esports betting tips over the last few weeks as we previewed the big CS:GO E-League Premier tournament as well as the Call of Duty Pro League Season 2 finals! We are back this week to take a look at the upcoming IEM Shanghai tournament in CS:GO, which gets underway Wednesday and offers a big $250,000 prize pool!

The great thing about the Shanghai tournament is that the time-zone aligns with us Aussie fans perfectly, with games set to kick off at around 2pm each day and continue throughout the night! See our preview and tips for the tournament below.

CS:GO IEM Shanghai Betting Tips

After some of the top ranked teams competed in the E-League Premier last week, the IEM Shanghai field contains some of the lesser known teams in world CS:GO, with the highest ranked participating team being the World #9 ranked NRG who are favourites to take out the tournament.

One of the major story lines for me will be how former CS:GO juggernaut Virtus Pro will fare after star player Snax recently departed for greener pastures in mousesports. Virtus Pro were a top ten team in the world just months ago and they still boast predominantly the same core that they did back then, so they are a massive danger for me here and great value at odds of $8 to win and $4 to reach the final.


Tyloo will also be a massive threat in what will be a massive home tournament for the majority of their core. They have performed well at their last two events and Indonesian player BnTeT has stamped himself on the CS:GO world over the last few months. However, the team to beat for me in this tournament has to be NRG.

They are arguably the only team in this tournament that boasts true major winning potential and the form of the  American trio of FugLy, Brehze and Ethan has been dominant of late. Canadian role player daps is one of the best in game leaders in North America at the moment and has the ability to out smart any of the opposing teams in this tournament.
