The final stage of CSGO CIS Minor Championship is about to take place between July 24-28 in Berlin. Eight teams are competing for $50,000 prize-pool and a pair of tickets for the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019. Among the participants, forZe and Team Spirit are the favourites by the CSGO CIS Minor Berlin betting odds to finish on top.
The closed qualifier for CIS Minor Championship took place last month. Online sportsbook news sites in Germany have reported that Team Spirit, Nemiga Gaming, forZe, and Syman Gaming have secured a place in the upper bracket. Whereas DreamEaters, Gambit Youngsters, Warthox, and Unique were the teams to bounce back and qualify in the lower bracket. All the eight teams will struggle for two spots at the StarLadder Major’s New Challengers Stage, taking place in August 2019.
CSGO CIS Minor Berlin betting odds suggest that the first qualifiers forZe and Team Spirit will most likely dominate the tournament. However, they might face a challenge along the way by Nemiga and DreamEaters. In the meantime, another tournament will be taking action in the build up for StarLadder Major, the Asia Minor. Thus, if you wish to place a bet on the Asia Minor winner as well, have a look at our review about 888sport.
forZe jumped from being ranked 109th to 29th

Later on, they won the CS.Money Premier to secure a place at the IEM Chicago 2019. In addition, this year they have become Copenhagen Games 2019 Champions. With such great results, forZe are expected to win in Berlin with 3.00 odds at 888sport.
Spirit have one of the most stable teams
The Russian Team Spirit are 44th in the world rankings. They have one of the most stable teams, with players holding on since 2016.

Last year, they have reached the final at the StarLadder imbaTV Invitational Chongqing only to lose against Tyloo. According to CSGO CIS Minor Berlin betting odds, Team Spirit value at 3.50 to emerge victorious.
Nemiga and DreamEaters might pose a threat
Among the other challengers, who could pose a serious threat are Nemiga and DreamEaters. Nemiga stand at 5.00 to win. They have recently won Kalashnikov Cup Season 2 against forZe (2-1) last June. They also reached the Winners League Season 2 Grand Final, but they lost against the young Danish team Copenhagen Flames. DreamEaters might also pose a threat, according to online sportsbook sites in Germany. They have qualified in the lower bracket, but if they keep pushing ahead, they might deliver a victory with 15.00 odds.
