PGL Major The Champions Stage is the decisive phase of the tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million. Top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players hope to secure a place for the semi-finals scheduled for Saturday. Eight teams have made it to the quarterfinals, which are scheduled for November 4 and 5, with Gambit Esports and Natus Vincere as favourites.
PGL Major The Champions Stage Predictions
The teams that will play in the quarterfinals are among the best CS:GO in the world. This provides unique PGL Major betting opportunities to first-person shooter fans with a keen eye for esports. Gambit Esports and Natus Vincere play on the second day and therefore are favorites to advance to the next round. In the opening stage of the quarterfinals, Heroic have a slight edge over Virtus.Pro, while G2 Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas play a coin flip match. Here are the four PGL Major The Champions stage predictions:
Heroic vs Virtus.Pro Betting Tips
The first match of the PGL Major The Champions Stage available at CSGO betting sites is Heroic vs Virtus.Pro. Heroic finished above Virtus.Pro in the New Legends stage and are credited with odds of 1.50. They have a crushing head to head record overall, but in recent years Virtus.Pro were able to level the playing field. They actually won the most recent fixture, the only game played in 2020 by 2-0. Odds of 2.50 on the underdogs to cause an upset are nice, but we like the odds of 1.50 to cover the +1.5 spread.
G2 Esports vs Ninjas in Pyjamas Predictions
G2 Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas play a game that is apparently too close to call. These two teams are evenly matched, but G2 Esports are definitely in better form. They won all games at the PGL Major and have a slight edge in recent games. The teams have won roughly the same number of games in head to head series. This explains the identical odds of 1.90 on each team to win and the coin flip nature of this series. We like the odds of 2.00 on more than 2.5 maps to be played, because of how close they are.
Gambit Esports vs FURIA Betting Tips
Gambit Esports and FURIA have met three times already this season and the former won all three series. The last one was the most lopsided affair, as they swept their opponents in two games. Before that, they needed three matches to determine the winner, as the South Americans put up quite a fight. Odds of 1.22 on the favorites to win are simply too low and not good enough to meet wagering requirements for a PGL Major Bonus. We suggest a bet on Gambit Esports to cover the -1.5 game spread and win in two matches.
Natus Vincere vs Team Vitality Predictions
Natus Vincere are arguably the strongest team in the tournament and the main favorites to win the event. Not surprisingly, most PGL Major The Champions Stage predictions favor them to advanced to the semi finals. During this stage of the competition, they will play against Team Vitality, who barely qualified to the playoffs. This team caused them plenty of troubles in the past, but in recent years the matches were dominated by Natus Vincere. Trust them to cover the -1.5 game spread and place a bet at odds of 2.00.
