ESL One Birmingham 2024: Favorite Teams To Win

Twelve teams compete at ESL One Birmingham, but only one can win. With such a small pool of teams, it can take time for bettors to decide. Fear not - Rivalry has the top three teams you should watch during the competition.

Team Spirit

The reigning TI champions, Team Spirit, are amongst the favorites to notch another win on their tally at ESL One Birmingham. 2023 was the year of the Spirit as they won DreamLeague S21 and Riyadh Masters 2023. Will they be able to maintain their winning stream at Birmingham? Only time will tell.

Team Falcons

Team Falcons is an up-and-coming squad that's seen a recent bout of success. They emerged victorious at the second BetBoom Dacha event and won DreamLeague S22. They're starting 2024 off strong, and we can't wait to see what they will accomplish at ESL One Birmingham.

BetBoom Team

BetBoom Team is currently paving the way in the EPT Leaderboard, standing at a well-rounded 7,500 EPT Points. Their consistent results and resolve have made them the best DOTA 2 team in the world. They're currently competing in the Elite League, meaning their reign train may only continue from here on out.
