League of Legends NA LCS Match Predictions for Week 8 - Day 1
100 Thieves vs. Echo Fox – Game 1
The 100 Thieves and Echo Fox are equally matched, currently neck and neck on the leader boards with nine wins and five losses. The two are still regarded as fairly new teams to being contenders for the top spot, pressure will undoubtedly be on the player of both 100 and Fox. As the NA LCS Summer Split approaches its conclusion, the victor of this match will likely determine who qualifies for the top spot.
Prediction: 100 Thieves 47% | Echo Fox 53%
Cloud9 vs. Golden Guardians – Game 2
C9 are on an absolute roll, taking out five of their past six games, a very worthy achievement. Golden Guardians are performing better compared to the Spring split. The Guardians continue to fall against mid-tier teams such as OpTic Gaming and Team SoloMid. Having bounced back, Cloud9 will most likely be able to defeat the Golden Guardians.|
Prediction: Cloud9 75% | Golden Guardians 25%
Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team SoloMid – Game 3
The two veteran teams continue to struggle within the 2018 NA LCS Summer split, both very unlikely to attend playoffs. TSM continue to struggle as a team, this has been repeatedly pointed out on Reddit. While CLG looked good at the start of the season, they are currently on a six loss streak, and are definitely on tilt. This allows TSM a decent chance to topple their arch rivals, CLG.
Prediction: Counter Logic Gaming 40% | Team SoloMid 60%
OpTic Gaming vs. Team Liquid – Game 4
OpTic are stronger than they have ever been before, sitting around the middle of the ladder with a 7-7 record. This burst of performance only began in the later weeks, with the team coming out and showing they are a force to be reckoned with. On the other hand, it is unlikely they are a match for Team Liquid, the top team in the NA LCS at the moment. Week 7 saw TL cement their top spot by taking down the 100 Thieves.
Prediction: OpTic Gaming 28% | Team Liquid 72%
Clutch Gaming vs. Fly Quest – Game 5
Clutch Gaming have shown quite large inconsistencies throughout the split, sometimes falling to the weaker teams, but having taken down TL earlier, they are no push over. FlyQuest is without a doubt a mid-tier team with their past performance, taking down a handful of teams around them, but continuing to struggle against the strongest few.
Prediction: Clutch gaming 40% | Fly Quest 60%
