As for the most profitable market for bettors, it was ‘Total over/under 26.5 rounds’ in a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map. Interestingly, the least profitable market was also for CS:GO – this time Round handicaps in CS:GO, and ‘Total over/under 2.5 maps’ in best-of-three CS:GO and Dota 2 games.

In 2019, Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses, and Fnatic proved the most popular teams to bet on, whereas in 2018 it was Astralis, Team Liquid, and Na’Vi who attracted most bets. As for events, unsurprisingly StarLadder Berlin Major 2019, The International 2019, and ESL Pro League Season 10 were the ones that raised pulses the most.

Bringing most disappointment to bettors were the Na’Vi and FaZe Clan CS:GO rosters, who managed to outstrip the previous record holders, Virtus.pro. On the flipside, mousesports (CS:GO) and OG (Dota 2) brought the most joy as the ‘luckiest’ teams, bringing in averages of +11% and +18% net profit, respectively.
