Here’s a tasty one for you. This upcoming, offline CS:GO Antwerp tournament is bound to turn a few heads. The tournament is kicking off on the 21st April and fans are pumped!
It’s one of four Swiss style tournaments that will see some of the best teams in professional CS:GO going head to head to qualify for one of the biggest competitions in the calendar.
‘Europe B’ is just one of the four areas in which teams are located alongside Europe A, Americas and Asia-Pacific. Each of these four locations will participate in its own individual tournaments and the top teams from each of them will qualify for the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 tournament that kicks off later this year.
All eyes will be on the summer tournament but it’s these early rounds where we’ll be able to see which teams are looking the strongest, and that puts us in prime position for CS:GO Major betting.
So don’t go anywhere. We’ll be going through a few scenarios for how this CS:GO Antwerp tournament could be about to go down. With that info, you’ll be in a much stronger position for betting on the tournament.
Just make sure you sign up with the right bookie in the first place. Here are a few of the best CS:GO bookies to get you on the right track.
There’s no denying that Spanish side G2 Esports are one of the best CS:GO pro teams in the world right now. They’ve been in dizzying form as of late and they could well be the ones to take it all the way.
After finishing second place at IEM XVI Katowice to the American side FaZe Clan and second in the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 to Natus Vincere (located in Europe A), it’s fair to say that G2 is probably the best team in the European RMR B tournament.
The team is made up of a mix of French, Bosnian, Russian and Finnish players. They are JACKZ, hunter-, NiKo, m0NESY, Aleksib and the coach XTQZZZ. They have to be worth a bet to go on and win this whole thing.
If you’re looking for a new bookie to place that bet with then we recommend Bet365 right now. Not only do they have some of the best CS:GO Major betting odds, but there’s a wicked welcome bonus for new players. You can get your first deposit matched 100% up to $200 now!
Don’t think for a second that G2 is going to walk away with the win on this one! Swedish team Ninjas in Pyjamas has been doing some great work recently despite often being considered an outsider to the likes of G2 and co.
Their recent results have been looking good. Really good. In fact, they’ve been looking better than G2 Esports. IEM XII Oakland? They won it. DreamHack Open Valencia? They won it. And that’s not all.
Ninjas in Pyjamas hasn’t seen a huge amount of wins as of very recently but there’s no doubt that they’re a team who are still in fine form.
The entire Ninjas in Pyjamas team are Swedish except for one Dane, es3tag. They are team captain hampus, then REZ, Plopski, Brollan and the coach djL. It’s a heck of a team and one that stands a very good chance of upsetting G2 Esports.
There would be no surprise if these two ended up going to battle in the final and boy, what a match that would be.
An honorable mention to Danish team Astralis who stand a very good chance of claiming that final spot to qualify for the PGL Major in Antwerp later this year.
Astralis played pretty well in the ESL Pro League Season 15 as well as in IEM Katowice earlier this year. They’ll certainly be looking to leave their mark in Antwerp.
This all-Danish team consists of Xyp9x, gla1ve, k0nfig, blameF, farlig and the coach, trace. You don’t want to count these guys out by any stretch of the imagination.
While G2 do look like the strongest team going into this competition, it’s going to be very close indeed. The odds will be looking good for this one so if you fancy a bit of CS:GO Major betting, now’s your chance to get involved and you can find all the best places to do that at Strafe.
