G2 vs. MAD
We are finally into LEC playoffs, and this is going to be chalk fest, so I advise to play a lot of cash games. The first game is Friday, which includes the best team in the LEC and a top team in G2, who are going against a surprisingly successful MAD. This is a team that had that splice play style but added a little new style for their early game, and they have looked decent throughout the split. This team is not afraid to challenge themselves by trying new drafts that will throw teams off just like Origin. If slept on, this team can be very dangerous. In this particular matchup, I believe MAD can take a game off G2 if they have some draft bait for them, but other than that I do not believe G2 will drop a game. In recent history, G2 has 3-0 about every team in the playoffs, and I will continue with that trend because they are miles ahead of everyone in talent. The only way G2 loses is if they start messing around and MAD is able to capitalize on their greediness.
Prediction: G2 3-0
