Nemiga (1-1) vs. Hard Legion (1-1)
Nemiga has won three of their last four matches including a 2-1 win over pro100 the last time out. Hard Legion snapped a three-game skid by getting past Espada 2-0 in their last matchup. However, when it comes to head-to-head meetings, Hard Legion has won 12 of 20 meetings including two straight and three of the last four meetings overall.
While Legion is a slight underdog in this matchup, I don’t think they’re going down without a fight, although I am going to back Nemiga simply because they’ve been on a red-hot roll recently and just pulled off a big upset the last time out. I’m expecting Nemiga’s boX to be the best player in this one while leading his team to the win!
Pick: Nemiga 2-1
Nordavind (1-1) vs. Japaleno (1-1)
Nordavind has won two straight and three of their last five including a hard-fought 2-1 win over AGO the last time out. Japaleno is struggling right now, having lost three straight series after winning each of their previous four. Japaleno has suffered a pair of identical 2-0 losses against Sprout in their last two series.
While Nordavind has yet to beat Japaleno in two all-time meetings, they did manage to nearly pull off the upset in their narrow 2-1 defeat the last time these two met. With Nordavind playing well and Japaleno struggling, I think the handwriting is on the wall for a Nordavind ‘upset’ if it can be called that!
Pick: Nordavind 2-1
