PUBG Nations Cup 2019 Odds: A Look At The Favorites

So the questions we're all asking is: which country's roster seems the strongest at this international tournament? 

Firstly, let's look through the odds of the obvious favorites.

Team Russia Odds

The roster of Team Russia consists of two Natus Vincere players - cen9 and ADOUZ1E, as well as Kemba7 from team Crow Crowd and ubah from Faze Clan. 

The young blood Arsenii Ivanychev is a great captain with interesting tactics. cen9 helped Na’Vi to reach new heights and to place 3d at GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic - one of the major PUBG tournaments

One of the fan favorites is undoubtedly ADOUZ1E, an unstoppable beast. He secured the first place at PUBG Europe League by dealing the most amount of the damage - 28538, while Gustav, who placed second, dealt 26256. ADOUZ1E also had 28 HS kills at PEL and took the third place, which goes to show how strong this player really is.

The third player of Team Russia is Kemba7. A Russian player from team Crow Crowd and a great fragger. During eight weeks of PEL he managed to secure 130 kills and share the first place with Itzz_ChrizZ, who also has 130 kills. 

And the last one is ubah - a player of Faze Clan. With his team, he won two tournaments in a row - PUBG Europe League 2019 - Phase 2 and then a GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic. He also reached top5 by dealing the most damage and knocks at PEL.

If you want to make a bet on the winner of PUBG Nations Cup 2019 - you should take a look at Team Russia. The roster looks pretty good since the best players from the best teams of PUBG scene are gathered together and ready to deal a lot of damage.

And if you want to bet on MVP of the tournament, we would recommend ADOUZ1E or ubah.

Team Finland Odds

Let's turn our attention to Team Finland. The first to catch the eye are Sambty and Jembty. These two guys play for the Team Liquid and show great results by taking top places at multiple tournaments. 

With Team Liquid they finished first at PUBG Europe League 2019: Kick-off Cup, they were the runner-up at PUBG Europe League 2019: Phase 1. They also took third place at FACEIT Global Summit: PUBG Classic and PUBG Europe League 2019 - Phase 2. 

Their personal results weren’t as good as those of players from Team Russia, but they still are pro in their field and will strongly contest for the win.

Two more Finnish players are Tiikzu and mxey. Tiikzu is a player of Winstrike. Despite the bad results of the whole team, Tiikzu has shown pretty good personal stats. And now he has a chance to play alongside top players of the PUBG scene and to gain new experience. 

mxey is a teammate of ubah, they together play for Faze Clan. As you already know, all the players of this team are on a peak performance after winning two tournaments in a row and it’s only a matter of time before they win another one. But now at PUBG Nations Cup 2019 ubah and mxey are the biggest rivals as they fight for the honor of their countries.

Based on these considerations, we fully expect Team Finland to reach the top3.

Team Germany Odds

The full G2 Esports squad play for the honor of Germany and it gives them some advantage among the other PUBG Nations Cup 2019 participants. 

While other squads consist of players from different teams, players of G2 Esports have been playing together for quite a long time. They have their own tactics, they know each other very well and everyone got his own role. They will surely be in their comfort zone and it’s a bit easier for them to compete at this tournament. 

One should also mention that during the last month they achieved really good results. G2 Esports placed fourth at PUBG Europe League 2019 - Phase 2 and took the fifth place at GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic.

In addition, the German squad has a secret weapon - Itzz_ChrizZ. He is a real frag-machine, who did the most kills and knocks at PUBG Europe League.

The PUBG Nations Cup 2019 is a great chance for Germans to add a champion’s title in their history, so we expect them to fight and nail.

The odds of G2 win at PUBG Nations Cup 2019 are good, so make sure to keep in mind when betting on PUBG Nations Cup.

PUBG Nations Cup 2019: Other Contenders

Team Turkey and Team Australia have every chance of winning the PUBG Nations Cup 2019. Team Turkey is completely composed of Digital Athletics players, so they have a similar situation like Team Germany, although we believe that the Germans are a cut above when it comes to skill.

As for Team Australia, there are two players from Athletico - luke12 and Zoidm8. In the league of their region - ESL AU & NZ Championship, they simply crushed everyone on their way and did not leave any chances to other participants. There they took second place in the first phase and the finished first in the second phase. In addition, together with their team, they showed excellent results at the GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic, taking the second place in the standings. These experienced players will be joined by vasili from Hell Yeah Brother and Insight from team  Incognito, which was disbanded on July 22nd.

PUBG Nations Cup 2019: What About The Remaining Teams?

Players from Argentina, Japan, Vietnam, South Korea and Taiwan rarely meet each other on the PUBG scene, so it’s extremely difficult to assess their capabilities compared to other teams.

However, any of these teams can surprise and make some noise. For example, Team Argentina, which consists of two Team Singularity players - p0me and RiboxD, looks pretty good. It is also worth mentioning South Korea, whose players are the best in their region.

The above-mentioned teams might not have the odds stacked in their favor however we would recommend keeping an eye out as they might be the underdogs that we're searching for.

PUBG Nations Cup 2019: Conclusion 

So there you have it, the three favorites of PUBG Nations Cup 2019 - Team Russia, Team Finland and Team Germany. Team Turkey and Team Australia are also contenders but it might be slightly riskier placing your PUBG bets on them.
