Betting sites & odds: ESL One New York 2017
Most of our recommended sportsbooks are providing betting on ESL One New York 2017, as it is a pretty big and important tournament. To narrow it down we have selected three sites that we believe to have great coverage of the event. And those, in no particular order, are the following: Betway, Unibet and bet365. Down below, we have highlighted a bunch of betting options that are available for ESL One NY on selected sportsbooks. Right now, you can bet on match winner, groups, tournament winner, rounds handicap, team to reach the final, region of winner, group qualification and hltv mvp. There’s already a lot to choose from, but it gets even better as there will be more odds available once the tournament has started.
ESL has revealed the initial matchups, so we have taken a closer look at each match and also added winner odds.
SK Gaming vs EnVyUs | ESL One NY
SK, one of the favorites to win ESL One New York, against a team that had to qualify. The Brazilian team couldn’t have asked for an easier opponent in the opening match, and the odds speaks for itself. A win for SK will only get you 1.30 times your money, while a win for EnVyUs could give you up to 3.40 times your stake.
Cloud9 vs Natus Vincere | ESL One NY
Cloud9 haven’t looked their best since the roster change, unfortunately, it seems like tarik and RUSH haven’t found their roles within the team yet. However, Na’Vi haven’t looked that great either, but they’re still favorites against C9, not by a lot, but still favorites.
FaZe vs Virtus.pro | ESL One NY
FaZe performed well in CS:GO Premier last weekend and defeated both Renegades and Na’Vi. So with their current form, we’d say that they’re favored against a VP that is out of shape. But, then again, it’s a bo1 so anything can happen. We still give a slight edge to FaZe though, just because their superstars are finally starting to deliver.
Astralis vs Team Liquid | ESL One NY
Let’s start with Team Liquid, they surprisingly sent SK packing at ESG Tour. That tells us that they have it in them to beat the very best in the world, so this match against Astralis should be interesting. All sportsbooks have Astralis as huge favorites, but we’d say it’s a lot more even than the odds is telling us.

Format NY 2017
ESL One New York 2017 starts off with two groups of four teams. Once again we see the popular GSL format for a group stage, where the opening and winners matches are played as bo1. And best-of-threes for the elimination and decider games, the top two teams from each group advance to the playoffs. The semi-finals will be best of three games while the grand final will be a bo5(!).
NY 2017 teams & players
The professional csgo scene is more competitive than ever, and SK’s winning streak seems to be over. Any team could claim the victory in ESL One New York 2017. But, with that said, three teams have a slightly better chance of winning the tournament. The top three contenders are Astralis, FaZe and SK. Rest of the participants are not very far behind though, which is something we don’t see very often.
