BLAST PREMIER WORLD FINALS TEAMS & FAVORITES
Eight teams take part in this event. They are: Gambit Esports, Heroic, Natus Vincere, G2 Esports, Team Vitality, Ninjas in Pajamas, Astralis, Team Liquid.
Teams earned their spots either by winning the Blast Spring Finals, the ESL Pro League, or based on points earned through the BLAST Premier Circuit. Natus Vincere holds a triple crown from qualifying events, having won both the ESL Pro League S14, BLAST Premier Fall Finals and PGL Major.
Based on a first look at the teams, the CSGO betting favorite is definitely Na’Vi by a wide margin. However, it is not guaranteed and there are some very good teams in this tournament. So, who else might be worth betting on to win?
Gambit’s CSGO odds of winning it all are included x4.3 at GG.BET. This makes them the second favorite to win it all. If you want to risk a bit, Gambit has good returns and is definitely still in the running for victory.
BLAST Premier World Final 2021 Betting Predictions
We will provide predictions for each round of the tournament, starting with the opening games. Granted, the first round can often be the most difficult to predict and usually means there are some good chances of getting some upset wins in that round. Let’s go through the four games and set our expectations.
Na’Vi versus Liquid
Na’Vi is the clear bet here. We’ve already discussed which cards Natus Vincere could potentially lose. It is highly unlikely that they will lose the streak, but dropping a card could be an option. Looking at the CSGO betting markets after making a niche bet is an ideal choice here, especially if you don’t want to bet on the winner.
Gambit Esports vs Heroic
Although Gambit was the better team, you never know when Heroic will show up. Take Gambit this round, but if you feel like taking a calculated risk, Heroic could yield a nice return. Keep in mind that Gambit played a terrible CSGO at the PGL Major, and we’re not sure how well they’ve recovered yet.
G2 Esports vs NIP
G2 is the favorite here, check out the CSGO odds for some fun betting options. For example, GG.BET set the odds for the first round of cards under 26.5 total rounds x1.91. This could be a good bet for a quick first card due to NIP’s terrible T-sides.
Vitality vs Astralis
This would be a good play to bet on the underdog. Astralis has shown brilliance with this lineup and could definitely knock out the French. If we’re looking at a game with potential for excitement, then our money is definitely on Astralis.
