Here is our analysis of the 2020 DreamHack Masters winter odds for the top two tournaments Europe and North America.
2020 DreamHack Masters winter odds Europe
Despite naming the tournament as European, it is fully international. The usual top contenders in Europe, Astralis, Heroic, and G2 are welcoming the leaders of North America including Evil Geniuses, Furia, and Liquid. The competition will feature two eight-team groups, with four from each group advancing to the playoffs. The grand-final will be played in a lengthy best-of-five for a prize pool of $150,000.
At online sportsbook sites in Denmark, Astralis are the favorites to win. Bet365 Sportsbook favors Astralis with 5.00 odds. It is no surprise as Astralis are the most famous in the CSGO world, and they are still competitive coming out on top in the ESL Pro League. But, we can all agree that they are no longer dominant. They were just eliminated from IEM Beijing by NaVi in the quarterfinals.
The second favorites Heroic standing at 5.50 are another top Daanish team. They might have a strong chance, but the fifth-placed at the 2020 DreamHack Masters winter odds, G2 with a value of 8.00 have a better chance. They brilliantly swept into the semi-finals at IEM Beijing, proving they are at their prime. Other notable names are Furia (6.00) that won the DreamHack Masters Spring North America. Evil Genuises (8.00) and Team Liquid (11.00) have the ability to go all the way, despite their recent setbacks.
DreamHack Masters North America is wide open
The tournament will be very different this year, as all top tier teams are competing in Europe. Thus, the usual underdogs have a great chance to prevail including Chaos ranked 19 and TeamOne ranked 24. the schedule and format are similar to Europe but only eight teams are competing for a prize pool of $70,000.
Chaos (2.50) is the only team that has been challenging the elite teams. However, Chaos never won a major trophy but this time it seems closer than ever. Should Chaos miss the precious opportunity TeamOne (5.00) will likely be ready to take over. After all, TeamOne had beaten Chaos at IEM New York.
