The Grand Prize is of around $230,000 USD and the crown of the NA LCS Championship.
Team Liquid vs 100 Thieves: NA LCS Finals Prediction
This is clearly the most awaited match for the whole region. Even above LLN and LPL competing, in terms of popularity against LCK and EU LCS. Team Liquid is a classic team for the finals. The finals match is against the recently created team, 100 Thieves; they have the highest winrate of the tournament, reaching 68% in 13 matches and Team Liquid follows them with 60% in 12 matches.
Team Liquid’s roster is filled with famous pro players and streamers including: DoubleLift (ADC), Impact (TOP), and Olleh (SUP). if all were the same we would bet our money on them, but due to personal reasons, there is great pressure on DoubleLift (DL). We have some doubt about his performance since the whole team normally revolves around DL.
The underdogs, 100 Thieves, do not lag behind in terms of roster, with: Aphomoo – the highest rated SUP – and Meteos, who is cited by many a “godlike” jungler.
Team Liquid (-180) vs 100 Thieves (+147) – Picks and Bets
100 Thieves, despite being a very new team, will be a solid rival for Team Liquid and will surprise many at their first ever NA LCS Championship final. Their solid and impressive roster, combined with their winning strategies during the regular season, has proven to be deadly.
Echo Fox vs Clutch Gaming Prediction
Echo Fox started really strong in the current LCS, but later on ended up loosing against the current finalist while having a 63% win rate. Huni is currently on their roster and is considered a consistent and great pro LoL player and currently plays at the TOP position. This has a big impact on the game when the team synergy allows it. We currently favor Echo Fox to win third place.
On the opposite side of the match, we find Clutch Gaming. They are a recently created team (~1 year old), with an interesting match history. They find a well balanced, intermittent win rate of 55%. We consider them our current underdogs for this match. Even though they have Feviben and LirA in their ranks, both great MID and JUNGLER respectively, they may not be able to beat Echo Fox.
Echo Fox (-120) vs Clutch Gaming (+100) – Picks and Bets
Despite Clutch Gaming being a good adversary, Echo Fox will end up taking third place due to their better team and roster. They have a proven and solid season record, and that will make the difference when the pressure is on.
Betting on the 2018 LCS Championship – Analysis & Overview
This is the end of the LCS Championship for both the North American and Europe regions. On April 7th & 8th will be decided who gets to go to the worlds, but bare in mind that only the third place is at play here, since both the second and champion have already earned their rightful place to compete at the worlds.
So, who’s to win the LCS Finals? We bet our money from the NA side for the Echo Fox to win the third place and for the 100 Thieves to earn the final prize! Take into account that if you bet during these games on 100 Thieves, for every $100 you could earn $147! What are you waiting for then?
