HAVU Gaming vs. Mad Lions

HAVU has won four of their last five matches including a convincing 2-0 shutout win over Cloud 9 on April 14 in the lower bracket’s third round. HAVU  has won two straight and seven of their last nine matches overall. Over the past year, HAVU has played 183 matches and won an impressive 116 (64%). The Mad Lions had their eight-match winning streak snapped in their heartbreaking 2-1 loss against grand finalist MIBR on Tuesday. Over the past year, the Lions have played just 36 matches while winning 24 of those (67%).

In two all-time head-to-head meetings, these two rivals have split with the MAD Lions picking up a 2-0 win on March 34 in their last meeting. The Winner of this matchup will face MIBR in the Grand Finals on Sunday, April 19 and I genuinely believe it will be the Lions who win and advance after recording a quartet of shutout wins over their last five matches. HAVU is playing well right now and they certainly won’t go down easily. However, the MAD Lions are playing out of their collective minds and will reach the grand finals by getting the hard-fought win in this one.

Pick: MAD Lions 2:1

Grand Final

MIBR has already punched their ticket to the grand finals. They’ve won three straight and five of their last six matches overall, including a hard-fought 2-1 win over the MAD Lions on Tuesday to reach the finals. MIBR has won seven of their last 10 matches while playing in 107 matches over the course of the last year and winning 59 of those (56%).

For the grand final, I’m also going with the MAD Lions to pull off the ‘upset’ win over MIBR. After losing a heart-breaker against the grand finalists the last time out, I’m fully expecting MAD Lions to prevail in a knock-down, drag-out thriller.

Pick: MAD Lions 2 MIBR 1
