CS2: Asia Championships 2023 | Can FaZe Go Back-to-Back in Shanghai?

CS2: Asia Championships 2023

Asian CS2 fans are in for a treat over the next five days as the best Counter-Strike teams in the continent go head-to-head in Shanghai. With a cool $500,000 on the line and a format that promises non-stop action, the CS2: Asia Championships 2023 is sure to deliver some excellent match-ups and betting opportunities this week.

FaZe Clan will head to Shanghai with the weight of expectation on their shoulders having recently won the Thunderpick World Championship 2023. With some big names having withdrawn from the Asia Championships, can they capitalise and go back-to-back in S-tier tournaments? Or will MOUZ be able to get revenge for their quarter-final loss to FaZe Clan last week?

As expected, FaZe Clan heads into this tournament as the betting favourite as well, with low odds of just 2.10 to win the Asia Championships 2023 outright. Behind them are their recent opponents in the Thunderpick World Champion quarter-finals, MOUZ, on 3.50. These two are well ahead of the rest of the pack with ENCE and Astralis coming in next at 6.00 before Ninjas in Pyjamas round out the top five betting favourites at 11.00.

While the remaining three teams are enormous underdogs, returning between 101.00 and 151.00, odds to make the final follow a similar pattern. FaZe Clan pays 1.25, through to 3.50 for Ninjas in Pyjamas to make a deep run.

The big question ahead of the Asia Championships 2023 is can any team stop FaZe Clan? MOUZ would seem the most likely to do so, having at least taken a game off them in their most recent match. In fact, they managed to sweep FaZe Clan 2-0 in ESL Pro League Season 18 just over a month ago, indicating that they at least have the ability to pull off such an upset.

However, the best bet here is simply to take the conservative route and wager on FaZe Clan to do what is expected of them heading in. They’ve been strong since the switch to CS2 and seem to be gelling as a group in this new format. With momentum and a weakened field ahead of them, FaZe Clan will be too clinical and professional to let such an opportunity slip. Expect back-to-back victories here with a modest return of 2.10 for those who bet on FaZe Clan to win outright.
