German esports data company Bayes Esports has joined a 2-year partnership with one of the premier CSGO events organizers, BLAST Premier. BLAST has been a staple in the Counter-strike: Global Offensive tournament scene since its inception. As a result of the deal, all of the data from BLAST’s live events will be available to Bayes’ network.
The purpose of sharing this kind of data with such an extensive network of clients is to improve the quality and quantity for licensed betting operators, media personnel, and digital service providers. The deal, which will be in place until 2024, will serve as one of the largest data shares in esports history

BLAST Premier Tournament Integrity
As one of the top CSGO tournaments organizers in the world, BLAST has long prided itself on the integrity of its events. The accessibility of the data that will come from a partnership with a org such as Bayes will only add fuel to the fire of that.
BLAST Premier is not the only organizer that Bayes has partnered with either. They have data available from ESL and League of Legends Esports that allows them to be a trendsetter in the world of esports betting.
Included in Bayes’ network are esports betting giants such as bet365 and GG.bet Esports. These companies will use data provided by Bayes to provide the top CSGO odds to their customers and build better betting products.
A Big Step Forward for Esports Data
This new partnership has received positive responses from both sides as a great step forward in BLAST Premier betting. The VP of Distribution and Programming at BLAST, Alexander Lewin, said of the new deal:
“The data analysis, statistics and insight which Bayes is bringing to their global client base will be a tremendous value-add for fans of BLAST and esports worldwide.”
Similarly, a deal that allows such an exchange of information can prove invaluable to fans of CSGO live betting. Through the volume of data available, Bayes Esports boasts the ability to account for “more than 80% of turnover generated in the official esports betting market”. And with the esports betting industry becoming ever more popular, this amount cannot go unnoticed by the industry. With BLAST set to host top-tier CSGO events in 2023, beginning with the Spring Groups, there’s a lot to come in the next season.
