Even so, the tournament is highly anticipated and enjoys ample coverage of major bookmakers.

CS:GO ESL One New York Format and Prizes
This new event is part of the Intel Grand Slam Season one and the winner will be decided at the end of the week. The group stage begins on September 26 and concludes two days later on September 28, when four teams emerge from the group stage. During this phase of the competition the matches will be played in a best-of-three format, just like the semifinals, while up to five matches will be played in the grand final. The $250,000 will be distributed among the top eight teams, but the amounts are yet to be decided.
Place your CS:GO bets with Pinnacle:
Punters can bet on all the matches, starting from the group stage and all the way to the final at Betway. The bookmaker regards Na’Vi as the main favourite, hardly a surprise after they have played the final in London against Astralis. Half of the matches are yet to be scheduled, but we already have the odds on the first four games, starting on September 26 at 6 PM UK time.
Na’Vi take on Gambit and they are so much better, that Bet-At-Home only offers odds of 1/10 on their victory. Unlikely as it is for the underdogs to cause an upset, the odds of 11/2 makes such a bet worth considering. In the other match of Group A, mouseesports and Fnatic fight for what is likely the second place and the direct match is very important. The former are narrow favorites, as reflected by the odds of 13/20 at GG.bet, while a bet on the underdogs will produce odds of 6/5.

FaZe Clan and Team Liquid to Dominate Group B
Two teams are expected to qualify from group B and both Faze Clan and Team Liquid players are hoping for an excellent start. ArcaneBet seems to reinforce this conviction, by offering odds of 1/5 on Faze to triumph at the expense of G2, which are priced at 3/1. A quick glance at how Esportsbetting.com prices the other match between Team Liquid and NRG will reveal the fact that the odds are virtually the same.
The four teams that survive the group stage will meet in the semifinals on September 29 in the most anticipated matches. However, punters have the best opportunities to win as soon as the tournament begins on Wednesday. Counter Strike Global Offensive enthusiasts and bettors alike can also tinker with bets on the teams advance from the group and the tournament winner, to name but a few.
