VG (3-6) vs. LNG (4-5)
Here we have two teams that are similar in play style and want to scale into mid to late game and take objectives. VG lost a game against EDG and then 2-0 LGD. A majority of their games are played through their top side, and if this is the case going into LNG I think they will have a tough time against them.

The only thing I wish LNG did better was execute in team fights, which would obviously make them a better team; that being said, the players and idealistic strategies they have are enough to take on VG.
Prediction: LNG 2-1
Bets: LNG Even ML
LNG Players to Target: Flandre (TOP $6,000), Xx (JNG $6,000), Maple (MID $6,800), LNG (TEAM $4,800)
