NA LCS Summer Split Week 9 Day 1 Predictions

It’s the final week of the Summer split and today we find out who will most likely end in the number one spot. IMT benefited huge from the Phoenix1 upset and took over the number one spot, but now they have to take on TSM themselves. Here’s the standings going into the day one.

1. Immortals (15-1)

2. Team SoloMid (15-1)

3. Cloud9 (10-6)

4. Team Liquid, Counter Logic Gaming (9-7)

6. Team EnVy (7-9)

7. Apex (6-10)

8. NRG Esports, Phoenix1 (4-12)

10. Echo Fox (1-15)

Phoenix1’s chances to take the final spot in the playoffs ended last week as the lost to C9, but that doesn’t mean that they’re going to hang it up. Right now they can beat EnVy and prove that this split was just the beginning for them. Of course they’ll till have to make it through the relegation tournament, but considering how C9C will just be selling their spot worst case scenario if they don’t in is to just buy again. Business wise that’s probably a bad idea, but hey gotta do what you gotta do. Predicted winners are represented in bold. (Overall: 54-17)

  • IMT vs TSM
  • Phoenix1 vs EnVy

Things kick off tonight at 5 p.m. CDT and can be watched here.
