Misfits vs Denial Esports
September 19, 2017 (18:00 EDT)
Misfits have to win this if they want to stay in the event. That said, Misfits have a good chance of dominating, since they are a much more experienced team than Denial Esports.
These teams have played four matches against each other this year. And out of those four, Misfits won three. In the last season of the Esports Championship Series, these teams fought each other to a tie.
Even if Denial Esports win this, they are still out of the event. But in that case, they will take Misfits down with them.
Misfits need to win all the upcoming matches to qualify for the Promotions, even though they’re midway up the League Ladder.
Misfits clearly have the advantage in this battle, since they’ve shown they’re capable of going up against top-tier teams. Misfits is likely to win their matches against Denial.
The odds are 4/7 on Misfits!
