CS_Summit 6 North America Playoffs hot picks
Now that both group stage and upper bracket matches were played, we are here to present you with a short CS_Summit 6 North America recap. On top of that, we will also provide our insight into this CSGO tournament with our short analysis and predictions.
The story so far
After two groups concluded their play, it was time for the playoffs. So far, we have seen only one match being played. Liquid took on 100 Thieves for what turned out to be an excellent match.
After a back and forth action on Nuke, Liquid was able to win their map pick. It is important to mention that they looked stellar on the T-side of Nuke, hence why they were able to close things out without breaking a sweat.
Dust 2, however, did not go according to plan, at least for Liquid. After stringing 6 rounds on the T-side of Dust 2, we were expecting Liquid to walk through 100 Thieves and book themselves a spot in the semi-finals. However, they failed to do so and we had to see Inferno.
It was clear from the get-go that something was not right with Liquid. After being 3-0 up, they fell apart. Losing 6 rounds in a row woke up Liquid and they were able to win the half with an 8-7 score.
T-side went smoothly for Liquid. Aggressive plays really helped them on Inferno and they closed things out with a 16-12 victory.
CS_Summit 6 North America Picks
Since North American version of CS_Summit 6 lacks a couple of teams, it is also hard to provide reliable predictions. However, we worked hard to present you with the analysis for upcoming matches so do not miss out.
Evil Geniuses vs Gen.G
EG has won 4 straight. On the other hand, Gen.G was on quite a big losing streak. However, they bounced back with victories against Chaos and Cloud9. From our perspective, this will not be enough for them to beat Evil Geniuses in this one.
Truth be told, EG are better everywhere. They have better individuals, their map pool is so much better once compared to Gen.G. All in all, this match will be a one-way street for Evil Geniuses and this is one of the safest picks we have for you. Sad thing is, odds reflect our analysis. This is why we will provide you with the betting site that provides the highest odds for this match just so you can get the most value out of this bet.
Prediction: Evil Geniuses to win

FURIA vs Cloud9
Another one-sided affair in our books. In their last 4 matches, Brazilian CSGO roster was on the receiving side of things 3 times. They were battered by Liquid and twice by Evil Geniuses. All of these matches were highly contested and the competition was fierce.
On the other hand, Cloud9 lost to mediocre teams such as Gen.G and 100 Thieves. You can clearly see where this is going. This should be a relatively easy match for FURIA as they are by far the better team in this one.
Prediction: FURIA to win
