As ESL One New York is weeks away from starting, the most common betting option is, without a doubt, outright winner odds. For this option, you place your bets on the team you believe will bring home the ESL trophy.
Among the favorites, we have teams such as Team Liquid, Na’Vi and FaZe, in that order. However, what you need to bear in mind is that the odds can change rapidly. Especially since all of the mentioned teams are participating in the major as we speak. So, depending on how that pans out, we can very well see Na’Vi or FaZe as the bigger favorites instead.

ESL One New York 2018 predictions
Natus Vincere, Team Liquid and FaZe are all in good form and are therefor favorites heading to ESL One New York 2018. Taking a look at most bookmakers we can see that Team Liquid is ahead of both FaZe and Na’Vi, although by a small margin.
Please note that our outright winner predictions below are by no means a guaranteed win. CSGO is a fast-paced esport and anything can happen, upsets are a lot more common that one could think. Also, never bet for more than you can afford to lose, which is the first thing you should remember when betting on ESL One New York 2018.
Bet on Team Liquid as the outright winner
Liquid is, right now, the most prominent team in North-America, or in the world for that matter. Their results speak for themselves, the second place at Eleague Premier 2018 and ECS Season 5 Finals. This makes them a team who is comfortable playing on a big stage in front of an audience. The fact that Astralis is not participating in ESL One New York makes this a golden opportunity for Team Liquid to finally lift a tournament trophy.
Bet on Natus Vincere as the outright winner
Na’Vi is definitely in their best form ever, and in the driver’s seat, we see s1mple as well as electronic, which basically are destroying everyone in their way. This team has three tournaments in their bag, this year alone, ESL One Cologne among other. A huge relief for Na’Vi is that Astralis won’t be attending ESL New York, their toughest opponent will instead be Liquid and FaZe. If you believe that Na’Vi will bring home the victory in New York you stand a chance of winning more than 4 times your money.
Bet on FaZe as the outright winner
FaZe Clan is back with their full roster where Olofmeister is included. They haven’t looked super impressive since the return of Olof, but they’re slowly but steadily getting there. Depending on how well FaZe does in the major playoffs, the outright winner odds can change dramatically. However, FaZe is still a really solid squad and they just have to find their way back to their A-game in order to be able to win tournaments once again.
