CS:GO or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, developed by Hidden Path Entertainment and Valve, is a first-person, multiplayer, shooting game. This game is the installment in the series of Counter-Strike and probably the most famous as well. Even though it was first introduced in 2012, because of the constant updates it gets, the game still has a large following. It also has a lot of esports events that you can bet on. And for esports bettors, there are a lot of things to look forward to in CS:GO in March. The massive event in Poland just ended, but the fun has just begun. So if you’re worried about what to bet on in March, don’t. We will provide you with a sneak peek at what’s in store for CS:GO bettors in March.
1. Season 15 of ESL Pro League
The biggest event waiting for us in March is the ESL Pro League’s 15th season. The group stage starts on 9th March. Each group will have six teams and there will be a total of four groups. Every match will be a bo3 and all the members of the groups have to play all the other teams from the group at least once. The winners of the groups will direct straight to the quarterfinals. The first and second runner-ups will also get a chance but from ro12. The playoffs will feature an elimination bracket and the bo3s will be used as a starting point. But as it reaches the finale, things will get interesting. The finals will be played in a best-of-five format. The prize money on the line is $823,000.
The teams to look out for in this tournament will be VIncere and Natus. But two other dangerous teams are Gambit and G2. Hopefully, this tournament will deliver on all its promises.
2. The Pinnacle Cup III
Don’t confuse the Pinnacle Cup III with the third Pinnacle Winter series. The latter started in February and ended on 16th March. The former started on 14th March. It features 32 teams that are ready to battle each other to determine the one true winner of the hefty prize money of $100,000. Well, the winner of the tournament takes 80% of the prize money which means they get $80,000. The runner up team will go home with the remaining $20,000. It seems that the primary contenders for the title are MAD Lions and AGO. Young Ninjas and Shark Esports are also teams to look out for. If you follow these teams then this tournament is an ideal betting option for you in March.
3. Elisa Invitational Winter
Elisa Invitational Winter is a tournament that is set to happen in March. There will be a total of 29 teams playing for the title. The number might seem weird but the format makes sense. These teams will fight for a $100,000 pool of prize money. The winning team out of the 29 will take home $50,000 out of the prize pool. The rest will be divided amongst the runner ups. The amount of money might seem small compared to some of the others. But you have to remember that this is a much smaller tournament and stars tier B teams.
Even though these are tier B teams, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be some interesting battles between them. Some of the teams’ others should look out for will be Entropiq and ENCE. They are the fan favourites. But of course, they are not the only contenders for the title. There are also Sprout and Dignitas who will be able to give them a fight for the top place. Betting on the top 10 teams can be fun but that’s not all there is to the CS:GO betting scene. In these smaller tournaments, you will be able to root for some smaller teams while making money.
Some tournaments started in February and ended by the middle of March. If you have enjoyed betting on those, then you will surely enjoy betting on the ones we listed as well. Even though ESL Pro League is the one everyone is interested in, the smaller tournaments are also an amazing opportunity for you to learn the betting scene of CS:GO.
