Before the start of this tournament, it still wasn’t clear if MIBR truly was back. But after their dominant victory against FURIA Esports, the smoke cleared and everyone became convinced that FalleN and his squad had finally managed to find the success formula, after a few years of wandering in the wilderness. Evil Geniuses is not a weak team either. In fact, they used to be the number 2 team in North America and in their first match of the tournament, they managed to beat Team Liquid, one of the legends in this region. Normally, given MIBR’s result against FURIA, I would regard them as the favorite. But even if they don’t win, they should definitely not lose without winning at least one map. And that’s why this bet makes perfect sense.
