BLAST Pro Series will land in Miami for the first time ever on April 12-13. Six of the best Counter-Strike teams will battle it out live at the Watsco Center. Our CS GO BLAST Miami predictions opt for either Cloud9, FaZe, or Liquid to enjoy the home soil advantage and win the trophy.
Internet sportsbook news in the US expect BLAST Miami to be an intense showcase with pure skill. Top world CS GO teams including Cloud9, FaZe, NaVi, MiBR, Liquid, and Astralis have all confirmed their participation. They will face-off over two days for $250,000 in prize money.
We predict CS GO BLAST Miami to bring us a new champion who never won BLAST before. That means the trophy will go to either Cloud9, FaZe, or Liquid. They are all American giants and they will certainly rely on their home crowds to capture the title.

Cloud9 to make a fresh start in Miami
One of the biggest brands in esports Cloud9 have already enjoyed the home oil advantage before. They started their 2018 campaign by winning the ELEAGUE Major in Boston. However, the squad was soon later almost dismantled.
The talented squad of purely American players gradually got picked apart piece by piece. Only Timothy “autimatic” Ta and Will “RUSH” Wierzba remain from the old roster. New talents have came in, thus the team should have a fresh start in 2019. The fans will look forward to see whether Cloud9 can come back to the top in Miami.
FaZe failed to score a 2018 comeback
FaZe Clan is the US based brand, thus it has a roster of international superstars. The team won many world contests in the past such as ECS Season 4, ESL New York, and ELEAGUE Premier 2017. However, their 2018 run was not so successful. Will they become the first ever BLAST champions in the US? If you think yes, check the latest review about Bet365 Sportsbook and choose FaZe as the outright winners.
NaVi won BLAST Copenhagen last December
NaVi are currently the 3rd best team in the world. Their 2018 campaign successfully ended by winning BLAST Pro Series in Copenhagen. They are led by the world number 1 CS GO player Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev. He is no stranger to the US fans. He played for the American Team Liquid in 2016. Yet, it remains to be seen if s1mple with his teammates will be able to win a second BLAST trophy in Miami.
MiBR won the first ever BLAST in 2017
The Brazilian powerhouse won the first ever BLAST Pro Series in Copenhagen in 2017. They have been also the finalists in Istanbul. Their roster is packed with world class players like Marcelo “coldzera” David, named as the second best player in the world in 2017. In addition to Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, one of the most experienced players to participate at BLAST. MiBR have all what it needs to win the trophy again in Miami.
Liquid need to overcome Astralis
Team Liquid are another American team to play on their home soil. They are the second best team in the world of 2018 after Astralis. Despite that, their 2018 campaign ended without a meaningful trophy. The Danish top team Astralis might be the main reason behind Liquid’s lack of trophies. Astralis met with Liquid in 11 LAN series in 2018, and they won all 11. Will Liquid fall short again in Miami? Well, our CS GO BLAST Miami predictions opt for Liquid to hopefully bounce back this time.
Astralis still dominate CS GO
They are still dominating the CSGO world. They have claimed BLAST trophy in Istanbul and Lisbon, that is 2 out of 5 BLAST trophies. It is hard to see a real contender to Astralis in the present. But, we predict CS GO BLAST Miami to see the best in the homeside teams. Therefore, maybe Cloud9, FaZe, or Liquid will be able to prevail against Astralis empowered by their home crowd.
