G2 won nine out of 14 last games in April. In March they won eight out of 18 matches.
Both teams have suffered some consequences during the last transfer period, Cloud9 got FNS and G2 got mixwell. Both players perform very well since their arrival, and this will be a tough match. Also, their group is impossible to know who will take the first two spots. The most likely scenario will be FaZe first and Cloud9 second, but it all depends from EnVyUs and G2, will there be an "exchange" of points since practically they are one organization, and both teams are on home turf.
My bet will be a win for Cloud9. I think they just waited for a big tournament to prove that Stewie who went to SK is nothing that is going to stop them from performing and maintaining that top 10 teams ranking.
Good luck to all who bet, and don't forget to gamble responsibly!
