It’s time for Week 3 of the LCS Spring 2020 season. We will cover 3 the most interesting matches that will happen on Saturday, first day of the Week 3 group stage play.
Team Liquid @ 1.32
Broxah’s visa has finally been approved. Team Liquid is finally getting their starting jungler two weeks into the 2020 LCS season. Right on time for the match vs 100 Thieves. Liquid had a pretty disappointing start to the season. With 2 wins and 2 losses, they are currently sharing 4th place with 3 other teams. They lost their matches vs CLG and Dignitas but won vs FlyQuest and TSM. On the other side, 100 Thieves have the same win/loss ratio as Liquid. They have 2 wins vs CLG and Golden Guardians, while they lost to Cloud9 and Evil Geniuses. Liquid is getting back with their full roster, and it will be interesting to see how they will perform. I believe this match is way more close then odds are suggesting, but anyway I would give slight advantage to Team Liquid.
Cloud9 @ 1.35
Is the old Cloud9 back? It might be, but let’s wait for the end of the regular season. Cloud9 are dominant for now, sitting in 1st place of the LCS group stage with 4 clean wins. They have beaten 100 Thieves, Golden Guardians, Immortals and Team Liquid. Surprisingly, FlyQuest is holding pretty good. With a 3-1 win/loss ratio they are holding 2nd place in the rankings after 2 weeks of play. Their European duo Santorin - PowerOfEvil on jungle and mid are looking pretty good. Even though last year they were 3 steps (matches) away from qualifying for the Worlds, this split may become the best FlyQuest LCS split in their history. This will be a pretty strong match, but watching Cloud9 dominating the first 4 matches, I can’t see them lose now. My pick here is: Cloud9 win.
Evil Geniuses @ 1.63
This may not be the match for the top of the rankings, but it’s the battle of the currently 2 last teams in the group stage. And such matches are sometimes more interesting than the top ones. We wonder how EG even ended up in the bottom 2, since they looked so promising before the start of the LCS. EG is 9th ranked team with 1-3 score, while CLG is currently holding the last place with 4 losses. EG is looking so strong on paper but they still didn’t manage to show that in their matches. Anyway, odds on EG here are amazing. This is a must have for all LCS followers and fellow bettors. I believe EG will take this best of 1 series and will leave CLG behind at the bottom.
