Liquid Echo Leading the MLBB Mid Season Cup – EWC Predictions

Published: Jul 10, 2024

As one of the most thrilling tournaments at the Esports World Cup, the MLBB Mid Season Cup is turning heads as the Playoffs unfold in the coming days. Liquid Echo, Falcons AP.Bren, HomeBois and others are hoping to leave their mark – let’s dive right in.

Group Stage – Liquid & Falcons Flawless

So far, this tournament has proved to be a hit with Mobile Legends betting sites.

To punch their spot in the Knockout Stage, the eight best teams fought to finish on top of their Group in the Group Stage.

Here’s a quick reminder as to how the final eight teams stacked up in their respective groups as esports betting favourites:

Of note, only two teams have been flawless so far, namely Falcons AP.Bren and Liquid Echo – let’s take a closer look at these favourites.

For those new to Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Echo is historically one of the best teams from the MPL Philippines region ever.

Moreover, the claim to fame here is their precious 1st place victory at M4 World Championship – a dominant win concluding with a 4-0 Grand Final sweep.

However, into the 2023/4 season, the team began to struggle and their form dipped tremendously together with their esports odds.

Shuffling the roster and bringing in new talent in the first months of 2024 paired with the acquisition from Liquid seems to have pumped new life into this team, winning MPL Philippines Season 13.

Already winning their opening Quarterfinal, they’re in a great spot to win the tournament if they can beat Falcons AP.Bren.

There’s one other team from the Philippines to look out for according to esports betting sites – Falcons AP.Bren.

While they may have placed second at MPL Philippines Season 13 to Liquid Echo, Falcons AP.Bren are your defending champions, winning the M5 World Championship last December.

Since then, in March, this squad also won the Games of the Future 2024. Featuring a rock-solid roster which hasn’t made a change since 2022, the roster boasts both firepower and experience.

Bearing this in mind, they are favourites alongside Liquid Echo.

Both Falcons AP.Bren and Liquid Echo will face one another in the Semifinals once Falcons AP.Bren takes down See You Soon. Last time they met, Liquid Echo walked away as victors.

HomeBois Hero Run?

While every team to make it here is a threat, we’d like to place a special focus on HomeBois from Malaysia.

Seeded as a Wildcard, they dominated their Wildcard Group and took down Entity7 to confirm their spot at the Group Stage.

As an underdog in Group C, they competed against Liquid Echo and managed to finish second. Seeded against NIP Flash in their opening Quarterfinal match, the HomeBois surprise run could keep going for another round.
