BO1 - 24 Jul - 21:00
TSM are locked in for a top-six finish with a 26-13 record on the 2021 season, whereas Golden Guardians are still one win short of catching up to FlyQuest in eighth place. TSM enter this match with an impressive 14-7 record on the summer season but are 3-3 in their last six outings. Golden Guardians are 9-12 this term, with a 4-2 record across the last two round robins. Last week they took down Evil Geniuses and Dignitas but fell short against Cloud9.
Golden Guardians are still the same team that won against 100 Thieves, Team Liquid, and Evil Geniuses. And while you could argue that TSM are better than Team Liquid, they’re not nearly as strong as 100T nor EG. Golden Guardians have some flaws and will likely struggle to keep up with TSM during the laning phase, but we like the kill handicap bet on the underdogs for this match. TSM are generally a low-scoring team, so while they might end up winning, it won’t be by a considerable kill margin. I suggest you to bet to the TSM.
