How to bet on CS:GO

CS:GO bets are simple. You can bet on the series (best of 1/2/3/5) or on the maps individually.

Here at Value Bets we work only with bets on maps and series BO1 and BO3. Because we use data from our database to build our probabilities and BO2 and BO5 series are rare, we have few occurrences at our base, so we can not have accurate statistics.

Bets in BO3 series

  • Money Line (ML): You bet on the winner of the match.
  • Maps handicaps: You bet on the advantage of maps.

Example: Astralis -1.5 vs. NiP +1.5

Betting on Astralis -1.5 you win if the Astralis win 2-0 and lose if the Astralis win 2-1 or the NiP win by any score.

Betting on the NiP +1.5 you win if the Astralis win 2-1, if the NiP win by any score and lose only if Astralis win 2-0.

  • Total maps (Over/Under): You bet on how many maps will be played in total. Remembering that it is a Best of 3 series, then the maximum is 3.

Example: Astralis vs. NiP – Over 2.5 maps

Betting on Over 2.5 maps you win if the total number of maps played is 3, meaning each team has to win at least one map.

Betting in Under 2.5 maps you win if either team wins 2-0.

Bets in maps and BO1 series

Remembering that the games are best of 30 rounds and in normal time wins who does 16 first.

  • Money Line (ML): You bet on the winner of the match.
  • Rounds handicaps: You bet on the advantage of rounds.

Example: Astralis -3.5 vs. NiP +3.5

Betting on Astralis -3.5 you win if the final result of rounds Astralis(-)NiP is greater than 3.5.

Astralis 16-12 NiP » 16(-)12 = 4 » 4 is greater than 3.5, so you win.

Astralis 16-13 NiP » 16(-)13 = 3 » 3 is less than 3.5, so you lose.

  • Total maps (Over/Under): You bet total rounds that will be played.

Example: Astralis vs. NiP – Under 26.5 rounds

Betting on Under 26.5 the total of rounds played in the match must be less than 26.5.

Astralis 16-11 NiP (27 rounds) you lose.

Astralis 16-10 NiP (26 rounds) you win.
