ESL One New York 2019 Format and Overview
Group Stage (September 26th – September 27th)
Just like in every other event out there, there are two stages. The group stage is where 8 teams participating will fight for their chance to advance through to the playoffs. Keep in mind that these teams will be split into two groups of 4. Furthermore, only the top two teams from each group will advance through to the playoffs.
It is also important to mention that every single match in the group stage will be played in the best of 3 format. Last but not least, group are seeded by using ESL CS:GO World Rankings which will make everything more competitive.
Playoffs (September 28th – September 29th)
ESL One New York 2019 playoffs are straightforward. There are no second chances for anyone as single-elimination bracket has been put in place. Since 4 teams will advance through to the playoffs, it is logical for us to see semifinals straight away. It is also crucial to mention that semifinals will be played in the best of 3 format. Grand final, however, will take place in the best of 5 series, which should be a complete brawl.

ESL One New York 2019 Predictions and Best Bets
Almost all the esports betting sites out there are covering ESL One New York 2019. This is why we decided to provide you with the safest predictions and bets regarding this CSGO event, so do not miss out.
G2 vs ENCE
Both teams are going through major roster changes. However, ENCE already replaced Aleksib with sunny and this change was made public even before StarLadder Berlin Major. On the other hand, G2 still do not have their permanent fifth member and they listed kioShiMa as a stand-in for ESL One New York 2019. I believe that this will be a one-way match and if ENCE do not win this one, they should probably bring Aleksib back to their squad.
Map pool is also heavily favoring ENCE in this one. On top of that, this match will be played in the best of 3 series which means that ENCE can even lose one map and win the game eventually. All in all, everything is pointing out towards ENCE winning this opening match. Given the fact that odds are so nice, we simply have to pick ENCE to win this match.
Prediction: ENCE to Win

Liquid vs eUnited
To cut things short, there is no way Liquid will lose this match. However, at odds of 1.10, there is simply no value in betting on Liquid. But, if we are to bet on them to win this series without dropping a map, we might find some value and overall, make this a solid bet.
There is no denying that eUnited is the worst CSGO team on ESL One New York 2019. There is no way that they are getting out of their group. Furthermore, we do not believe that Liquid will lose a map against eUnited, especially now that eUnited made one roster change. They will have barely any team play or cohesion and eventually, they will be battered by Liquid. This should be a freebie and with the odds we found for you, this should be an excellent bet.
Prediction: Liquid to Win 2-0
