As you can probably guess, all the popular Esports bookmakers are going to cover IEM Katowice 2019. A lot of teams will offer insane betting odds and a huge variety of specials. In this article, you will be able to read about who to bet on, and who to avoid betting on.


Given the fact that the odds on Astralis winning IEM Katowice 2019 are too small, I would strongly suggest you avoid it. Furthermore, most of their matches will have a similar margin that will vary from 1.15 to 1.50. These are not the odds you should be taking.

However, if you enjoy live betting, you could play a long game and wait for odds to rise, especially if Astralis loses a pistol round or something similar happens. If you are fast enough, you will most likely earn some money while betting on Astralis.


This team is always going to have a big chance to win an event they are playing on. This a team filled with superstars. Once they get going, there is no stopping them. Furthermore, they are coming off from a successful event, where they were able to lift ELEAGUE CS:GO Invitational 2019.

In most cases, if you decide to bet on FaZe, you will get decent odds. Since they are a team with huge firepower, there is certainly value on them. However, I would never bet on FaZe to win the entire event, since they have to stop eventually. Lastly, you should definitely keep an eye on live betting once FaZe starts playing. If they have a bad start, they will probably snap out of it eventually, and you will catch high odds.


This one is pretty straight forward. Avoid betting on ViCi and you will save some money for yourself. They are definitely the worst team on IEM Katowice 2019 and there is no denying it. They were barely able to qualify despite playing in the weakest CSGO region, Asia.

Even though odds on ViCi will be through the roof, do not be tempted, and just avoid betting on them. They are lacking in every aspect of the game. Firstly, their individuals are not so skilled. Furthermore, their only game plan is to win individual duels, and there is no way that they will be able to win those against European and American teams.

Natus Vincere

Ukrainians had an awful couple of months. They were not able to win anything, and on top of that, they looked really bad. Their game had no structure and most of their victories were based on individual plays made by s1mple.

Natus Vincere’s in-game leader announced that they are not expecting much from this event, and if they are able to finish in the top 8 they would be satisfied. Given the fact that Natus Vincere is a top contender and 4th favorite to win IEM Katowice 2019, betting on them would not really help you make money.

However, if you decide to bet against them, you could profit. In most scenarios, Natus Vincere is going to be a favorite, and if other lower ranked teams take them seriously and approach them without fear, they could pull off an upset. In conclusion, do not bet on Natus Vincere, since their in-game leader announced that they are not well-prepared for IEM Katowice 2019 and that he would not be surprised if Natus Vincere gets eliminated in the early stage.
