As one of the final big events of 2023, Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 is a must-watch tournament for all Counter-Strike 2 fans and punters alike, offering plenty of excellent betting opportunities to explore. But to bet on Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, it's important to use the best esports bookmakers, such as Stake.com, which offers excellent market coverage and some of the most competitive CS betting odds.
Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 Odds
The Main Favourites
According to the outright Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 Counter-Strike betting odds, MOUZ (3.50) are the main favourites to win Elisa Masters Espoo 2023. Not long ago, ENCE (3.75) were the favourites, however, following the departure of coach Eetu "sAw" Saha and Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer, their odds have dropped.
Seeing MOUZ priced as the main favourites isn't too surprising. The international roster has been posting good results over the last few months. They won ESL Pro League Season 18 at the end of the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive era and continued with their strong form into CS2.
At the end of October, MOUZ made the semifinals of Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023, then reached the quarterfinals at Thunderpick World Championship 2023, and claimed a silver medal from CS Asia Championships 2023.
It's also important to note that in the last three tournaments, MOUZ were eliminated by the current best CS2 team in the world, FaZe Clan. So, had FaZe not been there, MOUZ would've won at least one more big event.
ENCE, who enter Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, are the most consistent Counter-Strike team of the last six months. They've placed worse than top four in just one of the last seven big events (fifth-sixth at IEM Sydney 2023), which is a strong testament to this team's quality.
ENCE also made the quarters of CS Asia Championships 2023 earlier this month and reached the final four at ESL Pro League Season 18 and BLAST Premier: Fall European Showdown 2023. However, despite their success, ENCE are considered weaker than MOUZ, which largely has to do with the departure of Snappi, leaving ENCE with just four members on its active roster.
Still, ENCE kept its core intact, so while they'll have a hard time finding a player to fill Snappi's shoes, ENCE should do just fine even without the Dane.
Darkhorses That Can Defy The Odds
According to the Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 outright odds, Complexity (4.00) are the third favourite to win the tournament, which makes sense. Complexity have looked great on Counter-Strike 2 and are one of the most-improved teams since the transition from CS:GO.
Complexity made the finals of IEM Sydney 2023 at the end of October, then suffered an early exit from Thunderpick World Championship 2023 (ninth-12th), but quickly improved the impression by reaching the semifinals of BLAST Premier: Fall Final 2023 with wins against Astralis and Natus Vincere.
Having shown that they can compete against the world's elite CS2 teams, Complexity are definitely capable of winning. Elisa Masters Espoo 2023.
FURIA Esports (7.00) are not to be ignored as potential Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 champions; however, the Brazilian team has not shown as much as the leading three favourites. Unlike other contenders, FURIA Esports have not come close to winning a big event, but they have reached the semifinals of Roobet Cup 2023 at the start of the month and PARI, Please last week.
Those are not the flashiest results; however, they show that FURIA are in good form and that they might cook up a few upsets in Finland.
Outsiders Who Will Struggle
While Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 features a few teams that can win the tournament, the event will also welcome four teams that are unlikely to accomplish much. Of that group of teams, Apeks (10.00) likely have the biggest chance of accomplishing something, priced as the fifth-favourites to go all the way.
Apeks have not won a tournament since June, and they've not shown much since the transition to Counter-Strike 2. This month, they made it through ESL Challenger at DreamHack Atlanta 2023: European Qualifier, but then crashed out of BetBoom Dacha: Closed Qualifier in fifth-sixth place.
Moreover, Apeks didn't impress at Roobet Cup 2023 when they exited the tournament in fifth-eighth.
GamerLegion (13.00) are in a similar position as a team that has not shown much on CS2.
They've attended just one CS2 tournament – Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023 – in which they ended in seventh-eighth place. GamerLegion have since not played another official match, which brings up many questions, making it tough to say whether they can do well at Elisa Masters Espoo 2023.
Fnatic are priced at 17.00 to win Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, which isn't too shocking considering the team has an incomplete roster. With the departure of Fredrik "roeJ" Røj Christensen and Christopher "dexter" Nong, the roster is left with just three active members, and Fnatic has yet to confirm who'll fill in the gaps.
Lastly, we have HAVU (51.00), who are the biggest outsiders to win Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 and unsurprisingly so. HAVU have not attended any big events over the last few months, and even in lesser events they've competed in, HAVU have not looked good.
HAVU seem like a tier below most other squads attending the Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, and while they might cause an upset, it's highly unlikely for HAVU to produce a deep run.
Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 kicks off on Wednesday, November 28, 2023.
