What to look forward to at the playoffs

This weekend, they are kicking off the championship with the playoffs. There are some amazing match ups this weekend and some games that are sure to attract fans of League of Legends betting.

The first event of the playoffs is between Evil Geniuses and Dignitas. You can check this match out on Saturday, August 7th. Even for the top eight North American teams, this will be a very uneven match. Evil Geniuses are the third seed in the event and may just wipe the floor with Dignitas. However, Evil geniuses have had a pretty unremarkable year. We could see an upset with a lower seeded team.

The second and final game of the weekend is between Cloud9 and Team Liquid. If you are interested in this match, it will be broadcast on Sunday, August 8th. These are two of the best North American teams right now. They faced off against one another at the finals of the Spring Split. Cloud9 came out on top but with all of the changes to their roster, who knows what team will come out on top?
