2022 Mid-Season Invitational Betting | EG vs. G2 Predictions and Match Analysis

The second day of the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational is here and, with it, a most extraordinary match-up: EG vs. G2! As far as predictions go, this one seems rather straight-forward, but if things pan out as expected, things might unravel a bit differently than most folks expect.

Now, let’s not beat around the bush: G2 styled over the North American champions the first they faced off and, frankly, it wasn’t even remotely competitive. EG had a few good plays but from start to finish it was wholly obvious who the better team was.

G2 were faster on the map, their macro was a lot cleaner, their rotations more timely, their execution pristine. They weren’t perfect, granted, but they obviously did enough to get their “hands raised” and that’s the only thing that ultimately matters.

And, well, they look good throughout the whole process which only further elevates their narrative and overall momentum.

They’re the more seasoned team with a much more varied and diverse arsenal or weapons. They knew what EG would do and had a counter prepared — it was just another day at the office for G2, and that speaks volumes not just about their preparation but also about their ability to execute on the biggest of stages the world of competitive League has to offer.

Their bottom lane duo, in particular, stood out in all the right ways. They weren’t necessarily the reason why G2 got away with the win, but they certainly did their job and made few (if any) mistakes throughout the whole game. That’s quite unexpected for a duo as “green” and inexperienced as they are.

Playing over in the LEC is one thing. Playing on the second biggest stage in the world — in South Korea, no less — is an experience unlike any other. And they’re showing no signs of regression or fear or hesitation, and for that they deserve our utmost praise and commendation.

They’re fearless, is what we’re saying, and if they can channel much of the same energy against the likes of T1 and Royal Never Give Up, they might even stand a chance at pulling off an upset. It’s unlikely, we know, but by no means is it impossible.

EG vs. G2 Predictions | Wholly Lopsided

The game itself was fairly entertaining, if a bit uneventful. EG were always one, two, or even three steps behind the LEC champions — they struggled to keep up and seemingly had no game plan in mind. And, well, even if they did they didn’t execute it one bit.

By the end, G2 made one thing perfectly clear: there’s still a pretty large gap between them and their North American adversaries. Still, this Evil Geniuses bunch never goes down without a fight. They’re probably well aware of the mistakes they’ve made and are surely working around the clock to fix everything that needs fixing.

We could, therefore, be in for a totally different game this time around. We don’t think Evil Geniuses will get the “W” but they will put up a much bigger fight — of that much we’re certain. And, well, if they play their cards right, they might even stand a chance at upsetting.

It’s unlikely, granted, but not impossible. Be that as it may, betting against G2 at this point simply wouldn’t make any sense, so our choice is clear.
