If you are bored of simple outright bets such as match winner or total number of maps played, I got something special for you. Few betting sites stepped up and provided us with Starladder major special bets. Below you can find my Berlin 2019 predictions.
Tournament Most Played Map
Let’s start things off with what should be a relatively easy Starladder major special bet. We all know that only two maps are being played constantly, Mirage and Inferno. Since we are talking about New Challengers Stage here, this means that we will not see teams like Liquid, Astralis or FaZe just yet. There is no denying that the teams I mentioned above prefer Inferno over Mirage, but this is not the case in The New Challengers Stage.
All in all, Mirage seems like a safe Berlin 2019 prediction and at these CSGO odds, and these odds definitely hold value, especially if you use ArcaneBet who offers 3.50 odds on Mirage to be the most played map of The New Challengers Stage.

To Reach the Final
I will be honest. This is probably the riskiest Starladder Major 2019 bet. However, the odds on this to hit are insane and I believe that this prediction is worth your money. We all know that Astralis is nowhere to be found in the last couple of months and personally, I am not expecting a lot from them here in Germany.
On the other hand, Vitality was only defeated by Liquid while they dominated everyone else including Astralis, FaZe, ENCE, and other top teams. You can probably see where I am going with this one. Alongside Liquid, Vitality is definitely the best team on StarLadder CSGO Major.
This is a straightforward bet and I believe that underdog has an insane chance to advance through and qualify for The New Legends Stage. TYLOO is a Chinese CSGO organization that topped the Asian scene for a couple of years now.
Given the fact that 8 teams will advance through, I believe that TYLOO has an excellent chance to seal that top 8 finish as the competition is not that fierce. I am confident that TYLOO can defeat teams like AVANGAR, CR4ZY, Complexity, forZe, G2 or even FURIA.
Let’s not forget the fact that TYLOO brought in arguably the best Asian CSGO player, Freeman. This guy is a beast and once you pair him with BnTeT, you’re getting an insane team. The best thing about this bet are the odds. At the time of writing, TYLOO is sitting at 6.50 odds to qualify, and this is simply a bet that I must take.
Map With Highest CT-Side Win %
If I saw this Starladder major special bet before I did my research, I would instantly put my money on Nuke, but at this point, I do not believe that Nuke will have the highest CT-side win percentage.
Teams are finally able to perform well on the T-side of Nuke and it seems that the map is becoming more and more balanced. This is the main reason why I believe that this is one of the best Berlin 2019 predictions. Train was always known as the map that heavily favors CT-side and it is not unusual to see 12-3, 11-4, 10-5 leads at halftime. Odds on Train are excellent and as I mentioned above, this is definitely one of the safest Berlin 2019 predictions

- Odds: 3.00
