Last week I noticed that in the Fantasy LCS weekly predictions different teams were predicted to win games. By knowing that coming match-ups, and relying on the fact that each match would need a winner, I was able to deduce that Riot predicted which team would lose in each match-up. I did the same for the NA LCS Summer Split week 4, and here are the predictions.
Cloud9 and Evil Freaking Geniuses are predicted to go 2-0 in their matches this week. Cloud9 is set to beat TSM and Dignitas. Both of those games should be fun, close matches. Cloud9 has a better record against teams above .500 than other top teams, but they have struggled against teams on the lower end of the bracket. With two games against teams at or above .500 expect Cloud9 to post good fantasy numbers this week, doing what it takes to “drag” games out and win.
Evil Geniuses play against LMQ and CLG this week. LMQ seems like they would match up well against EG, but as EG gets more experience they seem to be meshing well, and maybe Riot knows something that we don’t that is affecting their prediction. CLG has been getting better and better. Dexter is still improving (54.17, 25.07, 28.20 week by week) in fantasy. Aphrolift are still winning lane and helping to win the game. The current 4v0 start meta is really benefitting the late game potential of that bot lane, letting Double farm safely, and letting Aphro make plays with the cow.
TSM is predicted to beat Complexity. LMQ is expected to beat Curse. Dignitas is slated to beat Curse, and CLG will probably hand it to Complexity.
Curse and Complexity both have zero wins to look forward to this weekend. Might be a good week to bench Voyboy. Just be happy Riot predicted eight winners this week rather than the seven they predicted last week.
