Evil Geniuses get odds of 11/20 to win, while those betting on an upset will be paid at 13/10.
Immortals Challenge TSM for Third Place
Team SoloMid sit in the second place after dominating the competition in recent weeks. The only defeat suffered at the hands of Evil Geniuses prevented them from claiming solitary pole position. They can improve their placement if they defeat Immortals on Sunday evening. This is a team they dominated in recent years, hence the odds of 1/2 on them to win, while the underdogs get 16/10. Immortals had their winning streak ended abruptly after winning four consecutive games and shouldn’t be underestimated.
Team Liquid and Cloud9 Classic

Golden Guardians and Dignitas Seek Redemption

FlyQuest and 100 Thieves Play Lopsided Match
The match between FlyQuest and 100 Thieves looks like a fight between David and Goliath. These two teams are at the opposite sides of form and are separated by a place in the standings. 100 Thieves are have won 10 out of the last 11 games, while their opponents lost seven matches in a row.
