Team Liquid and NRG Esports will meet on Saturday, August 19, in the LCS 2023 Championship lower-bracket final. By the numbers, Liquid are a much stronger team than NRG, and the offered LoL betting odds reflect that.

Team Liquid’s performances throughout the LCS 2023 Summer regular season were mediocre. They had their moments, but TL struggled in closing out games, which is the main reason they’ve come up short of expectations.

However, Team Liquid have improved substantially for the LCS 2023 Championship. This comes with an asterisk since TL lost their first playoff match against NRG Esports (1-3), yet we should focus more on their performances against 100 Thieves (3-1), Evil Geniuses (3-1), and Golden Guardians (3-2).

Across the three series, Team Liquid have had their shaky moments, but it seems like they’ve finally turned a corner and put a lot of focus on fixing their main weakness.

NRG Esports exceeded everyone’s expectations by reaching the upper-bracket finals, but they got a bit lucky and were eventually exposed by Cloud9 in a 0-3 sweep last Saturday. NRG looked toothless in that series, proving they are not fit to compete at the highest level.

Throughout the season, NRG Esports’ success depended heavily on their opponents making mistakes. Such opportunities have presented themselves quite frequently, yet in games where NRG have been skill-checked, they’ve fallen apart.

NRG Esports defeated Team Liquid last time, but it mostly had to do with TL’s early-playoff struggles. Expect Liquid to win comfortably and take one step closer to their fifth LCS title.
