GG vs. EG
With how good Evil Geniuses started, they have been inconsistent ever since their first two wins. Svenskeren and Jiizuke are put on champions that don't work well together in a meta where the jungle/mid combination is very important. I don't get why EG can't just draft normally, because they "could" be very good. For Golden Guardians, Closer and Damonte are good together with Closer at 50 percent first blood and a top-three player in gold differential in his position. This should showcase how potent Golden Guardian's early game is, which could see the team snowball EG. To make matters worse, EG tends to over extend in fights which can be problematic when their top and bottom lane differ on what type of pace they want to play around the map. For how good EG is on paper, they have the same team stats in every category besides first to three turrets which Golden Guardians hold over EG.
Prediction: GG Win
TSM vs. C9
Everyone knows that Cloud9 is the best team in the league. This team leads the league in every category and the one thing they do is draft appropriately, taking every series seriously.
