CS:GO: how to analyze the game
- Find the statistics of the teams’ personal meetings.
- Check news about substitutions and other negative factors.
- Find out the mappool.
Muppool is the number of cards, on which the percentage of wins of the team is equal or greater than 50%. The more mappools, the easier it is for the team to fight against different opponents.
It is easy to get caught off guard by squads that are able to show good play on only a couple of cards. Those who excel on at least four, however, will not be left at a loss.
The locations currently used in competitive CS:GO are Ancient, Dust2, inferno, Mirage, Nuke, Overpass, and Vertigo.
CS:GO betting strategies
1 Strategy betting on cards
Cards on which the teams will play are determined immediately before the match. Knowing the mappul sides and seeing their choices, you can more accurately determine the winner in the upcoming game.
It is best to first identify the strongest by faceoffs and other basic criteria, then wait for the selection of cards and take the favorite’s win on its location.
The method also works in the case of equal opponents. But you should not take the victory of a clear outsider, even on his best card.
2 First 10 Frags Betting Strategy
This strategy is similar to the previous one. You also need to determine the favorite and wait for his card. The difference is that you need to additionally find out which side he starts for – T (terrorists) or CT (counter-terrorists).
There is a list of cards on which T or CT is a little easier to play. Therefore, it often happens that before the change of sides, one of the teams goes to the gap and then the first to finish the ten.
In 2022, the T has an advantage on Vertigo and Dust2. KTs have an advantage on Ancient, Mirage, Nuke, and Overpass.
Accordingly, if the favorite starts his card on the favorable side, he is most likely to get the first 10 fractions.
What’s important to remember
When in doubt about a bet, skip it. Don’t play at random and don’t use a “catch-up.” An ill-considered decision can lead to a loss of money.
Bet the minimum amount until you get used to it and know how to judge the layout of the forces and the chances of profit.
Do not consider betting as a way to earn money. Bet as much as you are not afraid to lose. Cybersports can be very unpredictable, so you should always be ready for the unexpected.
