A large majority of my picks for TI9 are going to be looking at the favorites as these are all best of twos and I believe the favorites will most likely either draw or win their series. So going by each series of games I am going to make my picks and on tomorrow's post I will post my record and see how we did. Along with all these picks I will give my most confident pick of the day and give my reasoning with it but for all other picks it just be a straight prediction.
TNC 1-1 Keen Gaming
2-0 Royal Never Give Up
2-0 Ninjas in Pyjamas
OG 1-1 Na’Vi
2-0 Keen Gaming
Secret 2-0 Newbee
Virtus.pro 1-1 Royal Never Give Up
Secret 1-1 Liquid
PSG.LGD 1-1 TNC
Alliance 1-1 Chaos
PICK OF THE DAY!
With all these picks being made I am looking at what I believe will get the most value at odds and currently I am seeing great odds on Team Secret -.5 (Take the series 2-0) over Alliance at -130. This season Team Secret have only dropped one game to Alliance and that was during the KL Major. Other than that one game it has been a clean sweep for them during the year and while I know TI9 group stage sometimes yields odd results I believe at these odds for the best team of the year it's too hard to pass up.
Current Record: 0-0-0
