Who to bet on in the Zotac Cup Masters 2018 Tournament


There’s quite a mixed bag as far as the team lineup goes for this event, so you’ll need to carefully select which games to bet on. Thankfully, all matches are best of threes, with the exception of the grand final, which is a BO5. This means there will be less room for upsets.

The best betting strategy for the Zotac Cup Masters tournament is to start by making bets on the top teams during the elimination stage on day 1. Below are some suggestions.

  • It’s safe to say that OpTic should come out on top no matter who their competition is.
  • MIBR sound like a safe bet, but their performance has been somewhat unpredictable. We’d suggest avoiding them.
  • TyLoo versus any other Asian team is a good bet. TyLoo is almost a tier 1 team and they get constant scrim practice against other Asian teams.
  • Bet against Virtus.Pro in almost all cases. VP has performed horrendously in 2018 and now they’ve lost Snax, arguably their best player.

Once the elimination stage is up, we should see OpTic and TyLoo make it into the playoffs. The other two spots are hard to predict. The safe thing to do during the playoffs is to make bets on both TyLoo and OpTic against their competition.

If TyLoo and OpTic come up against each other, we would suggest avoiding the bet entirely. The two teams haven’t played against each other enough, and they are relatively close in terms of CS:GO team world rankings. It would be a very risky bet to make.
