The first quarterfinal for the LCS Summer Playoffs will see third-placed Team Liquid clashing with sixth-placed FlyQuest in a five-game series for a spot in the upper-bracket semifinals against 100 Thieves.

Team Liquid finished the regular season with 12 wins and six losses. Throughout the split, TL have been one of the more consistent teams in the LCS. They ended their split by winning six of their last seven matches, with their only defeat coming at the hands of 100 Thieves.

During the regular season, TL mid-laner Soren “Bjergsen” Bjerg compiled the equal-highest KDA of 8.7 with Evil Geniuses support Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme. For TL to go deep this split, Bjergsen will need some help from his other lanes, otherwise they will continue to lose to the top teams late in the playoffs.

FlyQuest finished the regular season in sixth place with a record of 10-9 after they had to play a tiebreaker game against Cloud9 to determine their position in the playoffs. FlyQuest had won their last three games of the regular season, beating 100 Thieves, Immortals and TSM, before they lost their tiebreaker game to Cloud9. Last time FlyQuest played Team Liquid they were unable to control the game, only taking two towers to TL’s eight while Liquid smashed the kill count 16-3.

Considering Team Liquid won the last battle between these two teams, we believe they should be winning this series. Given that this series is a best-of-five and not a best-of-one, FlyQuest could take one map off of Team Liquid, so we will back TL 3-1 in the correct score market.

Team Liquid to win 3-1



Best Odds: CLG +162 at BetOnline | C9 -227.27 at BetOnline

The second upper-bracket quarterfinal sees the fourth seed, CLG, taking on the fifth seed, Cloud9, with the winner progressing to play Evil Geniuses in the upper-bracket semifinals.

CLG enter the playoffs in average form at best, as they lost two of their last three matches in the regular season. CLG’s Summer split has been somewhat of a rollercoaster, considering they have wins over Team Liquid and Evil Geniuses, who sit in third and first, respectively, but they also have losses to Golden Guardians, Immortals and TSM, who sit in seventh, eighth and ninth. If CLG are to go deep, they will need to be more consistent, especially as we hit the best-of-five series in the playoffs.

Cloud9 finished their regular season in fifth place with an 11-8 record after they beat FlyQuest in the tiebreaker game. C9 will also be kicking off their playoffs in average form, as they lost to both CLG and 100 Thieves in week seven. However, they won two of their three games in the final week, with their only loss coming to Evil Geniuses. While Cloud9 lost their last match against CLG, they won the first matchup against them back in week three, so this could be a very tight series.

With the closeness in record and the fact that both of these teams earned beat each other during the regular season, we could be in for a cracking series. Our money will be on CLG to win the series or lose in tight five-map series, so we will be taking the outsider at the +1.5 map handicap.
