Invictus Gaming vs Griffin Gaming
Griffin had a decent group stage (5W-1L) with solid games and ended up losing only one match versus a strong G2 Esports, in which they even won the tiebreaker.
Invictus Gaming were facing stronger opposition in their group and lost two maps versus DAMWON gaming who didn't look invincible at all. My bet would be on Griffin gaming to win.
Boukev's best bet: Griffin gaming to win versus Invictus gaming @1.6x
Funplus Phoenix vs Fnatic
Fnatic have shown amazing last-day resilience, winning three matches in a row including against SKT1 and RNG - an impressive feat indeed.
Meanwhile, FunPlus Phoenix had a terrible group performance, dropping maps unexpectedly to both Splyce and J Team. Before the start of the tournament I would have easily put the victory on Funplus Phoenix due to their strong performance in the past four months but the bookmakers have responded to their current form in these best-of-one matches.
This has resulted in a great 1.6x return on a bet for a victory for FunPlus, which I cannot ignore based purely on best-of-one performances.
Boukev's best bet: FunPlus phoenix to win versus Fnatic @1.6x

SK Telecom T1 vs Splyce
While Splyce managed to become the surprise package of Group B only the most die-hard fans are expecting them to win versus SK Telecom T1. In both past results, tournament history and current form SKT1 are the favorites by far.
This is culminating in an impressive 15.0x return on your bet - even if Splyce lost this match 11 times in a row before winning, we would still turn a profit. So while SKT1 will probably win I am still betting a tiny amount on an EU victory.
Boukev's best bold bet: Splyce to win vs SK Telecom T1 @15.0x
DAMWON Gaming vs G2 esports
This feels like the easiest of the four LoL Worlds 2019 quarterfinal matches to predict. DAMWON had a shaky group stage versus sublevel teams while G2 showed very strong dominance in most their matches even though they lost against Griffin twice. My bet is on G2 esports to win.
Boukev's best bet: G2 esports to win versus Damwon gaming @1.8x
