Counter Strike Global Offensive ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals » Betting Predictions
2018 is slowly but surely coming to an end, yet fans of the first-person shooter genre still have a couple of great games to enjoy. The Counter-Strike Global Offensive ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals starts tomorrow and the best teams in the world will play for a massive prize pool. $660,000 will be spread among the most successful players, with the winners taking a paycheck worth $250,000.
ArcaneBet dedicates ample coverage to this major tournament and punters will be able to bet on the group stage matches as well as the playoffs. Except for the initial matches, all the games will be decided at the end of a best-of-three series, with two teams from each group qualifying to the playoffs. These are scheduled to start on November 24 and the winners will be decided at the end of the week.

New ArcaneBet has just announced its latest match deposit bonus, aimed at helping new players start their online gambling adventure on the right foot. This promotion isn’t reserved exclusively to those who choose to bet on the Counter-Strike Global Offensive ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals, but all members. This year, Christmas comes early and those who use the FESTIVE promotional code when making the next deposit will have it matched by 100%.
Anyone is eligible for the bonus, so both new players and those who already have an account with ArcaneBet will have their bankroll boosted.

Bet on the Group Stage Matches on November 22
All the first round matches will be played on November 22, starting at 3 PM UK time with the game between Astralis and Cloud9. This appears to be the most lopsided series at the Counter Strike Global Offensive ESL Pro League Season 8 Finals. Astralis have won several tournaments in 2018 and are the main favourites to win in Arlington, so the odds of 1/5 on their victory over Cloud9 make perfect sense. A bet on the underdogs to prevail will result in winnings 4.5 times larger if the Americans cause an upset.
MIBR and Mousesports are likely fighting for the second place in Group A and the latter are narrow favourites. Mousesports are priced at 3/4, while ArcaneBet currently offers even odds on a MIBR victory. The most balanced series in the group stage is the one between NGR and NIP with odds of 9/10 and 8/10. Last but definitely not least, Team Liquid will try to confirm their favourite status over North and win at odds of 1/2, while the underdogs get odds of 3/2.
