CS:GO Predictions

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Tipify

Before getting to the basics of betting on CS:GO, we go to the game’s mechanics. CS:GO is a first-person shooter game growing in popularity around the world. Before the Internet age, it started as a LAN-based game, which can only be played offline with bots or against other players through a cabled network. But it has now evolved and can be played through the Internet along with players from different parts of the globe.

The general rules of the game

A match starts with two teams composed of 5 players each. One team will be designated as the terrorist team while the other players the counter-terrorist team. The terrorist’s team objective is to attack and plant a bomb on the bomb site and successfully detonate the planted bomb or kill all counter-terrorist team members. On the other hand, the counter-terrorist team’s objective is to defend the two bomb sites and if the bomb happens to be planted, defuse the bomb before it detonates or kill all terrorist team members instead. Lastly, in a professional game, the usual set-up would be a two-minute skirmish and teams race to 16 round wins.

Ideally, the game brings balance and fairness because both teams only start the matches with a limited amount of money. Hence, each player only has basic armors and weapons to start the match with. To be able to upgrade the armors and weapons, players need to get kills, plant the bomb, or the defuse it. This then earns players money which can bring an advantage in late games. But the game avoids lopsided wins like this for the losing team. If the team continuously loses rounds, the losing team can still earn bonus money giving them a chance to fight and possibly win the match.

The Options You Can Bet On

Let’s get into the basics of placing bets on CS:GO. Firstly, you need to know the betting options that you can choose from and where to bet. The majority of the sportsbooks offer these lines.

Moneyline -This is the simplest way you can bet on CS:GO. It is just betting on the winner of the match, may it be a best-of-three match or a single win match, the winner of the match will be the sole result of the bet.

First Blood – Breaking down what this means, it is the player who gets to kill an enemy player as the first recorded kill of the game. So, as a bettor, you will be placing a bet on a match in which player will get First Blood, or whoever kills a player first.

The Various Currencies You Can Use

Skin Betting – Playing CS:GO involves guns, different weapons, and armors. Valve, the developer of CS:GO added cosmetic options called skins. Although they offer no boosts in stats of the armor or weapons, they are only for appearance. While they are worn as cosmetics, there are also skins that are rare in-game. So, this also gives players bragging rights that they boast around while playing.

Fiat and cryptocurrency Betting – Of course, like normal sportsbooks or wagering, we use fiat currencies to bet. On the other hand, with the emergence of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, these can be used in placing CS:GO bets as long as the sportsbook accepts such currencies.
