The game consists of two teams of five players - terrorists and anti-terrorists. Each player has defined his role within the formation/team. Depending on the type of game, there will be one goal or another. The games are played in two parts, each of them divided into 15 rounds.

In online mode, there are different types, although the main ones are:

  • Of hostages (fight terrorists to free hostages)
  • Deactivation (fighting terrorists to defuse a bomb),
  • Arms race (new weapons are obtained when an enemy is killed),
  • Wrecking (a combination of Deactivation and an Arms Race)

The winner of the match will be the first to reach 16 rounds.

CS:GO betting strategies

In this modality of Esports there are numerous strategies, so we also have to take into account many factors when making our forecasts and learning how to win bets on csgo games.

The most important thing to keep in mind is the choice of side. To decide who plays on each side, a first round is played that does not affect the score. The winner of the round will choose whether he is a terrorist or an anti-terrorist. This is important since some maps are more favorable to terrorists, and others to terrorists. That is, some team will have an advantage depending on the chosen side.

Therefore, we can find a team that came out with high odds that has chosen the most favorable side for the maps and therefore, will have an advantage and it will be interesting to bet in their favor.

The rapport between the players and team members is also key when making bets. Before betting on a team we will have to check the members of it to make sure that they play the best. If we see any important absence, it will be interesting to bet against the team in question.
