5) CSGO Betting tips

You should follow the below tips to increase your chances of winning but remember there is always a risk of losing so wager responsibly.

1- Avoid emotional betting: You must keep your emotions aside because it is hard for fans to bet against their favorite team and players but you must think wisely and make more thoughtful decisions.

2- Do not bet everything on a single game: Being e-sport there are heavy chances that a team rock bottom in rankings might upset a top tier team on a given day because of how they feel and perform on the day so better split your wager among several maps and games.

3- Head-To-Head: There are multiple rivalries like Natus Vincere vs Astralis so always check for which teams perform better against which opponents and make your bets accordingly.

4- Recent Form: Check the team's current and recent form and results, you can check the results and search for your team and their recent outcomes here - LINK.

5- Motivation: Often times best teams lose against mediocre teams because the motivation is high for the lower ranked team and games where qualification is already over you might see more upsets.

6- Maps: It might sound funny to some but certain teams are better on particular maps like Evil Genuinses will always perform good on Inferno while Na'Vi will have an edge over their opponents on Dust2 map. 

7- Roaster Changes: Part of the recent form are roster changes so keep an eye on the news section and make sure you are aware of any new players signing with teams and what roles they are going to perform. Usually, new players are asked to play the support role but if a new player joins and is sniping for the team, it might be quite risky and you should avoid betting on the team.
