While MAD Lions and Rogue are already in the playoffs, Excel Esports is yet to guarantee a spot. They will face even more desperate opponent – Origen. The match will be held on August 8 as a part of Super Week 8. Excel is currently having 7-8 records while Origen is struggling to improve from the current 6-9 stats. In the past week, Excel has defeated and lost to Schalke 04. Meanwhile, Origen has lost both matches to S04 and MAD Lions.
There are only 4 playoff spots left for grabs and 8 teams still in competition for them. In cases Origen defeats, the team most likely will lose all chances of advancing further. Yes, the team’s form isn’t the best (lost 4 LEC matches in a row) but Origen has won the latest h2h match with Excel that happened on week 2. Thus, the odds on both teams to win are exactly equal and there gonna be a tough battle. Therefore, I will pick Total Kills – Over 20.5 with odds above 1.8.
