We are moving on to Round 2, which begins at 11AM EST on Saturday! The first day was nuts, having H2k making short work of SPY. Despite the result, the game looked like a very close one, and it could’ve easily been Splyce who swept H2k, but the last second mistakes and overaggressiveness, add in the good Jankos showing up, and you have H2k advancing to meet with the Unicorns of Love in round 2. The other game however was just how it looked like, a dominant performance by one team…and it wasn’t the team that got to the playoff and outplayed CLG and C9…It was actually the lowly FlyQuest. Boy that was tilting. The good thing is, i don’t believe they are actually good enough to advance any farther.
We’ll be going a little blind, as Bovada didn’t provide any lines for the NA match. For the early 11AM EST match H2k (-180) is favored over UOL (+125). If the UoL plays the way they did in their last matchup, and if Jankos plays well (see how much H2k’s success is tied to Jankos?), then this money line makes sense. Looking to the NA matchup, we have CLG awaiting FLY. As stated before, I think this is where Fly‘s quest comes to an end, but miracles have happened before. If there is anyone you want to play as a value play, it’s probably Wildturtle.
