New talent set to rule the ESEA Season 35 Premier Division

Posted on September 14, 2020 - Last Updated on July 11, 2023

The ESEA Mountain Dew Premier League is the prime competition for up and coming CS:GO talent to make it into the big leagues. It’s one of the longest-lasting competitions giving teams a chance to compete and prove themselves on their path to CSGO glory.

Over the years many of the best cs go players and superstars went from playing at ESEA events into premier teams and proved their worth on the big stage.

The 35th season is played simultaneously in North America, Europe, and Australia and features some of the stronger B-Tier teams in the scene and plenty of up and coming young players.

This season will last all the way through the next three months and end in December with the ESEA Season 35 Global Challenge. This makes outright bets and predictions impossible. There is however plenty of opportunity for weekly betting along the way.

ESEA Season 35 Regional Favorites

With each of the three regions consisting of 18 teams, there is plenty of contenders for CSGO betting over the next few months. Most popular esports betting sites like and Betway Esports are already featuring advantageous CSGO betting odds.

All three regions are playing single round-robin format groups, meaning there is plenty of matches to bet on for each of the favorites we select.

We are going to select three teams per region and the reason why you should consider them in your weekly ESEA MDL bet slip.

ESEA Season 35 North America

Our selection of favorites for the NA region comes down to Team One, Swole Patrol, and Secret Club.

Secret Club is the least known team out of the three we selected. The roster is featuring two former players from the amateur team Kinship and the three mainstays of the S34 ex-Morning Light roster. The team added Kyle “Wolffe” Greenfield and Anthony “CLASIA” Kearney at the end of August forming a young super-team set to take the North American scene by storm.

The former Ze Pug Godz roster is now fighting under the banner of Swole Patrol. Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro is the new leader of freakazoid’s brainchild mix-team that changes identity every few months. Based on the performance of the Pug Godz over the past few months, we can predict Swole Patrol performing well at S35 and likely making the Global Finals.

Finally, Team One is a familiar name to many in the CSGO scene. The Brazilians have been on the CSGO scene for almost two decades and have featured some of the best regional talents on their historic rosters. The team regularly plays against premier teams and are likely one of the strongest teams in the competition. They are our third and final pick to look out for in North America.

ESEA Season 35 Europe

Our selections for the European Premier Division are forZe, Alternate ATTAX, and HellRaisers.

All three teams have had plenty of action over the course of the summer and there is ample data to compare from the Eden Arena Malta Vibes, Nine to Five, and LOOT.BET CSGO events.

Almost the entire lineup of the ESEA MDL S35 Premier Division has been present at some event over the summer and we can compare player performance among most of the teams. Based on these metrics the three teams listed above are likely all advancing to the Global Challenge at the end of the competition.

This automatically means any bet placed on them during the next 8 weeks is a likely winner. Between the three forZe is the strongest contender while the other two are hard to predict on a head to head strength level. Try to avoid betting when they play each other.

ESEA Season 35 Australia

Finally, the Australian league is likely the easiest to predict out of the three. Our selection easily features teams ORDER, Avant, Chiefs FC.

While the CSGO scene in Australia has been dominated exclusively by Renegades for the past few years, the only teams regularly challenging the champions are the three listed above. When it comes to competition at the ESEA Season 35 Premier, they are head and shoulders above the rest of the competition.

Any betting scenario where these three teams face an opponent is more than a safe bet. Between each other, ORDER is currently the strongest team with Avant and Chiefs being neck and neck. Do keep in mind these three teams regularly swap places and know each other very well. Predictions are quite hard to make when they face one another.

With all of that said. You have 9 teams and 50 potential matches you can bet on all the way till December. May the betting gods favor you.
