The IEM Rio Americas RMR will kick off on Wednesday with 16 of the best North and South American CS:GO teams battling it out from October 5-9 in Stockholm, Sweden. Below are ESB’s best bets for three of the day-one matchups, with odds from the best esports betting sites.


Best Odds: 00 Nation -188.68 at BetOnline | 9z +137 at BetOnline
When: October 5, 2022 | 07:30 EST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/ESL_CSGO)

00 Nation have won four of their last five series over the last two months, with two of those series being best-of-one matches in their IEM Road to Rio South American Open Qualifier, where they finished third to book a spot in this RMR. Since then, the Brazilians have only played one competitive series, where they defeated SWS 2-0, so they will be coming into this Americas RMR with a great deal of confidence.

9z actually won their IEM Rio Major South American Open Qualifier back in August, going undefeated throughout. They have been in some good form leading up to the Americas RMR, winning three of their last five series over the last month. Much like their opponents, the 9z roster will enter this series with a fair amount of confidence. They actually beat 00 Nation last time they met, which was in the PGL Major Antwerp RMR in April of this year.

Both 00 Nation and 9z have won their last two best-of-one series, so it is very hard to split them when it comes to their results, and their last meeting was a very tight three-map series. Therefore, we will be taking the overs in the total rounds market.

Over 26.5 total rounds



Best Odds: Complexity -357.14 at BetOnline | ATK +250 at BetOnline
When: October 5, 2022 | 07:30 EST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/ESL_CSGO)

Complexity will be looking to make a statement at the IEM Rio Americas RMR after they outperformed a lot of expectations at ESL Pro League Season 16 by making it to the playoffs, considering many didn’t have them getting out of the group stage. The North Americans have had to qualify for the PGL Major and IEM Rio Americas RMR due to being ranked too low for automatic entry. Considering Complexity finished fourth in the PGL Major Americas RMR in worse form than they enter the IEM Rio RMR in, we would expect to see Complexity going very close, if not winning this RMR.

ATK will be a big outsider in this best-of-one contest against Complexity, and they should be at much bigger odds when you consider they recently dropped two best-of-ones to teams sitting 77th and 47th in the ESL world rankings. They will struggle in this match and they will struggle to get a win in the IEM Rio RMR.

Complexity should be winning this match easily, and with the rounds line at -4.5, we are more than happy to launch into the -111.11 odds on offer at BetOnline.

Complexity -4.5 rounds



Best Odds: Liquid -714.29 at BetOnline | TeamOne +400 at BetOnline
When: October 5, 2022 | 08:45 EST
Watch Live: Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/ESL_CSGO)

Team Liquid enter the IEM Rio Americas RMR off the back of a great performance in ESL Pro League Season 16, where they made the grand final and were so close to winning the whole thing. The no.3-ranked team in the world will be heavy favourites to win all of their matches in this RMR, as they should be. If Liquid can continue their great form, they could be a very good chance to take out this RMR and even the Major.

TeamOne enter the Americas RMR on a 10-match win streak after they took out the Ace North American Masters Fall 2022 and the ESL Challenger Rotterdam 2022 North American Closed Qualifier. This Brazilian team can cause an upset here if Liquid don’t turn up completely focused and ready to go, but even so, TeamOne would have to play a near-perfect match.

TeamOne come to Sweden in great form, as do Liquid, meaning this match could be a close one, so we will be taking the overs in the total rounds market.
