Every CSGO esports bettor is looking to find the best CSGO betting odds and the lines on the market. Finding a trusted sportsbook, that has low margins (low vig) and offers the best odds is as important as building a winning betting model.
Margins & CSGO betting lines
Margins (juice, vig) are basically commissions from bookmakers and their advantage. The bigger the margin, the worse odds.
To calculate betting margins simply take any lines from counter strike global offensive games and calculate as follows (example):
- Team A: 3.20 -> 1/3.20 = 0.3125
- Team B: 1.35 -> 1/1.35 = 0.7407407407
- Margin: 0.3125 + 0.7407407407 = 1.053240741 -> 5.32% is margin (juice/vig)
I compared csgo odds with Pinnacle odds. Pinnacle is arguably one of the best bookmakers in the World with low margins, great betting odds, relationship with sharp gamblers,… but the problem with Pinnacle are country restrictions.
