IMT (8-10) vs. DIG (8-10)
Immortals could've secured the sixth seed in playoffs before going 0-2 on the weekend, resulting in them having to win not just once but twice Monday if they want to make it into the playoffs, as the winner of this game moves into the second tiebreaker for the sixth seed against Golden Guardians. Before the season, both of these teams were thought to have the worst rosters in the league, so even at 8-10 they've exceeded expectations by having a shot at the playoffs. I'm siding with Dignitas here after a 2-0 weekend earned them the right to play for a playoff spot, but I expect them to be chalky. Either side can be in play here in what essentially amounts to a coin flip. From the DIG side, Froggen and Johnsun have been the main carries for the team all season, while consideration for Immortals rests on the shoulders of Xmithie's veteran jungle presence and Apollo, who has played well since earning the starting AD Carry role. Eika has been the weak spot all season for Immortals, and since he's going up against Dignitas' best performing player, I think the mid lane difference is what pushes DIG into the next round.
