Odds as of April tenth
Coming into the playoffs, MAD Lions wouldn’t have been the decide of many to win the LEC Spring Playoffs. A few weeks later, the third place finisher within the common season has pulled off a few large upsets to lock up their spot within the closing. They picked up 3-1 wins over G2 and Rogue, who completed first and second within the LEC common season respectively. It’s not that MAD Lions have been a foul workforce, it’s that G2 have been far and away the heavy favorites. Though they dropped three of 4 to shut out the common season, the MAD Lions have scaled up for playoffs.
The MAD Lions’ power this season has been their early sport. In video games two and 4 in opposition to G2, their aggression and talent to search out early benefits was evident. Extra promising than that was in sport one, after they managed to crawl again from a deficit to win the opening sport.
Towards Rogue it was an identical story. They cleanly closed out video games that they obtained early leads in, and as soon as once more pulled off a comeback, this time to place an finish to the sequence.
MAD Lions are shoring up their weaknesses and it’s turned them into a really actual risk within the LEC. They’ve already taken down the highest contenders in G2 and Rogue. Now can they do it once more?
The Finish of an Period
Even after their loss to MAD Lions, there was nonetheless a whole lot of religion that G2 would have the ability to work out what went unsuitable and bounce again to win the Spring Playoffs. As an alternative, G2 was eradicated within the semifinal by Rogue, and for the primary time in 5 years, G2 Esports won’t be within the LEC finals.
It’s a surprising end result and though blame will be positioned on inner misplays and choices, a whole lot of respect must be given to MAD Lions and Rogue.
Rogue made a few low season acquisitions to take their workforce to the following degree, however a whole lot of their rise to the highest must be accredited to ‘Larssen’ and ‘Impressed’. The advance of their younger expertise has Rogue knocking on the door of their first LEC title.
Their late sport has been spectacular for a lot of the season, and in opposition to G2 they have been as soon as once more stellar at closing the door to potential comebacks. On high of their late sport prowess, Rogue’s early sport plan was close to excellent and it appeared like ‘Impressed’ walked away with a few early kills in each sport.
A pair weeks after dropping to MAD Lions, Rogue may have an opportunity at revenge within the LEC finals. Though MAD Lions gained that sequence pretty convincingly, I believe it was a little bit of a wake-up name for Rogue and a few of their younger gamers. After dropping to the decrease bracket, Rogue has been a special workforce. Wins over Schalke 04, and extra importantly a 3-1 over G2, has Rogue of their first ever closing.
It’s a toss-up, however I like MAD Lions to as soon as once more defeat Rogue and lock up their spot at MSI.
- Decide: MAD Lions (-120), O 4.5 (+162)
