PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 will be the first Counter-Strike 2 Major, which will run from March 17–31 in the Danish capital. With only a few S-Tier Counter-Strike tournaments being held in the opening months of the year, there are plenty of teams who come into the Major underdone due to not competing in LAN events over the last few weeks.

After qualifying through one of the Europe A, Europe B, Americas, or Asia RMRs, 24 teams will take their place in Copenhagen; however, eight squads have been directly invited to the elimination stage, while the remaining 16 must go through the opening stage of the US$1.25 million event.

Esports betting sites have their outright markets focused around three teams, with Team Spirit (+225), Team Vitality (+250) and FaZe Clan (+275) at the top end. Outside those three, (+600), G2 Esports (+800), MOUZ (+1000) and Natus Vincere (+1000) are all given a good chance to claim the opening Major of 2024.

Here is our PGL Major Copenhagen betting preview and outright picks, with odds courtesy of the top Counter-Strike betting sites in United States.

G2 Esports

With the likes of Nikola “NiKo” Kovac, Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov, and Nemanja “hunter-“ Kovac headlining their five-man Counter-Strike roster, G2 Esports have as much firepower as any of the rivals they will face during PGL Major Copenhagen. Much like many teams at the Major, G2 have not been seen on a public server since their third and final victory at the Europe RMR A, where they defeated FaZe Clan 2-0.

Over the last three months, m0NESY has been the second-highest-rated player (1.30) in the Counter-Strike scene, only sitting behind Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut (1.43) from Team Vitality. With their star AWPer playing at a very high level while NiKo and huNter- rarely have an off day, G2 have all the ingredients to win the organisation’s first Counter-Strike Major.

Outright winner: G2 Esports



One of the forgotten squads in the lead-up to PGL Major Copenhagen is MOUZ. The number four team in the Counter-Strike world rankings has been nothing short of impressive in the last 12 months. Post the Paris Major, MOUZ have finished in the top four in seven of their last nine S-Tier events, including their victory at ESL Pro League Season 18 as well as two runner-up finishes at IEM Dallas 2023 and CS2 Asia Championship 2023.

Coming off taking GamerLegion to the grand final at the previous Major in 2023, Kamil “siuhy” Szkaradek will lead this MOUZ roster in Copenhagen, joined by the likes of Ádám “torzsi” Torzsás and Jimi “Jimpphat” Salo. If this young, up-and-coming squad can perform similarly to how they did at IEM Katowice 2024, where they finished in third-fourth place, MOUZ can surprise a few at double-figure odds by lifting the PGL Major Copenhagen trophy.

Outright winner: MOUZ
