NA LCS Summer Split Week 8 Day 2 Predictions

This is a big day for a lot of the teams in the middle of the standings. If you aren’t TSM or IMT then your record and playoff spot could drastically change in these last two weeks. The difference between third and seventh is a matter of a game or two and some of the teams are facing off today. Here’s where everyone stands going into day two.

1. Team SoloMid (14-0)

2. Immortals (14-1)

3. Liquid, Cloud9 (8-6)

5. Team EnVy, Counter Logic Gaming (7-7)

7. Apex (6-9)

8. NRG Esports (4-11)

9. Phoenix1 (3-11)

10. Echo Fox (1-14)

It’s really tight for the middle of the bracket. Mainly in the three/five spots as all four of those teams face off today. Last week C9 dropped a match to CLG and it could really bite them today if they manage to lose again. Liquid and CLG are both teams that as soon as you say they’re doing well they start to relapse back to the things that put them in precarious positions, but that pertains more to CLG than Liquid. This is going to be a good day as it sets up the playoff picture going forward. Here’s the matchups and my W/L record. Predicted winners are represented in bold. (Overall: 47-15)

  • CLG vs Liquid
  • EnVy vs C9
  • TSM vs P1
  • Apex vs IMT

Things kick off tonight at 2 p.m. CDT and can be watched here.
