Evil Geniuses are clearly one of the top two teams in the LoL Championship Series, and their upset loss against Golden Guardians last week doesn’t change that. Immortals have had some success early into the LCS 2021 Summer, but other teams soon caught up to them. They’re now 10-11 on the summer season and 2-4 in their last six outings. That run includes a loss against Evil Geniuses, who beat them on Friday, July 9.
It was a relatively close match, however, EG have since improved. EG is having a great and successful season, but until they start showing signs of slowing down, we will continue to be bullish on them. It was a relatively close match, however, EG have since improved, whereas Immortals seem to have stagnated and haven’t produced anything of note besides their fluke win against Cloud9 last week. The LCS has become very competitive, so it rarely makes sense to trust the favourites to cover the kill handicap, but the line for this match seems a bit low and this means that EG will punish Immortals.
