Cloud9 and Gen.G will clash on Wednesday, May 17, in the second round of the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 losers’ bracket, marking their first meeting since the LoL World Championship. And according to the latest odds, we might see another quick 3-0 win for the LoL Champions Korea (LCK) representatives.
Gen.G started their MSI 2023 campaign with a convincing 3-1 victory against G2 Esports in the first round of the bracket stage. But they were no match for T1, losing 2-3 against their regional rivals on Saturday.
On the other side, Cloud9 lost their round one fixture against Bilibili Gaming (0-3) but then bounced back with a 3-1 victory against Golden Guardians. That means North America’s LoL Championship Series (LCS) is still a chance to claim its first MSI title, although it won’t come easy.
The latest League of Legends betting odds paint a clear picture of how this match should go. Cloud9, while a capable team, are no match for Gen.G’s individual talent, and they haven’t looked outstanding in their last two outings either.
Cloud9 were terrible against a very beatable Bilibili Gaming side, and they’re here only because Golden Guardians underperformed on Sunday. Still, Gen.G didn’t look great in their last two outings either, and while the Koreans should win this series, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that they drop a map.
LoL betting sites are offering +162 on Cloud9 to win at least one map, which is worth a bet. Gen.G have shown cracks, and if Cloud9 play as well as we know they can, they should sneak in a map.
Cloud9 +2.5 maps
