The ESL One Katowice Major continues with LGD Gaming vs Evil Geniuses! It’s arguably the most interesting match of Day 1!
Evil Geniuses are a curious case, one game they’ll dominate like Champions then the next they’ll fold like amateurs. Their internal issues haven’t helped their cause either, but even in all this inconsistency, putting Sumail in the offlaner role has been a masterstroke!
Whereas LGD, the Chinese powerhouse have been in a decent form. They had a good run in the GESC qualifiers but eventually lost in the Grandfinals against VGJ.T. But their wins against NewBee and VG have given me enough evidence to reckon LGD has one of the teams to watch out in this tournament.
Prediction – It’s going to be a scintillating match! Two teams who have much to prove in a BO1 series is definitely something to hype about. It’s a tough one to predict but my gut feeling tells me that EG will turn up for this one and given their good track record in Valve supported events gives me an added incentive to support them. Hence, I’ll be going for a EG victory!
My odds for this match: LGD 40:60 Evil Genuises
My tip: LGD 20
LGD win with odds 1.5 or more. 5%
I keep on underestimating EG recently with their change of roster taking in Misery and Sumail to third position, when I predicted they should win the bo5 game against COL, they just lost to COL so I decide to go for LGD with 5% here. Since EG is seriously cannot play well with this roster yet and LGD performance is very good right now, they should be one of the top 10 team as well for now.
LGD did a very well done job recently, although they did lost to VG.J Thunder very consistent as they get 0-2 result and 1-3 result losing to VG.J Thunder in bo3 and bo5 respectively.
