Brazil has been a hotbed for Esports and League of Legends over the last few years. That has led to the next CS:GO major taking place in Brazil, and there is a fervent passion for League of Legends there. No one team has dominated the region like we have seen in other leagues with INTZ being the most successful team with five titles. INTZ is pegged to come in dead last though, while two-time winners RED Canids are slight favorites over three-time champions KaBuM Esports.

We saw the RED Canids make a run through the lower bracket playoffs last season in order to win the CBLOL and claim Brazil’s spot at the Mid-Season Invitational. The RED Canids were swept by KaBuM in the first round, but they beat Liberty in five games to start their run. They proceeded to knock off FURIA and KaBuM in the rematch before defeating paiN Gaming in the finals.
Bottom laner Titan is the main carry for RED Canids, and he posted a 4.7 KDA while dealing 27.1% of his team’s damage last split. Grevthar and Avenger have split time in the mid lane, and Aegis is a solid jungler. The top lane is a bit of a mess though.
KaBuM was the best team in the regular season earlier this year. They were the No. 1 seed and went 13-5, easily dispatching of RED Canids before losing the rematch. Jungler Wiz is a playmaker with a 5.1 KDA, and top laner Parang led the team in damage dealt. Disave was superb on Aphelios in the bottom lane, so this is probably the best bet on the board.
FURIA are the other favorites per the current League of Legends betting odds. Star jungler Ranger did not have a good split with a team-low 2.8 KDA, so FURIA are hoping that he bounces back. Top laner fNb is a little too dependent on S-Tier champion Gwen and has not been strong on the weak side otherwise, so this is a team to avoid although RedBert is an elite support and Envy is a quality mid laner.
The star of paiN Gaming is still dyNquedo, but he has been somewhat outshined by bottom laner Trigo recently. dyNquedo posted a 5.1 KDA last season, and he could be poised for a strong split when the meta changes as he is better on control mages. Trigo had a 6.1 KDA in the bottom lane, but this team does need import top laner Wizer to play better in order to win another CBLOL title.
It’s hard to have a lot of faith in any of the other teams in the CBLOL. Tinowns is a superb mid laner for Loud, but Robo and Tay have not been sharp in their positions.
DudsTheBoy was way too reliant on Aphelios in the bottom lane, and he was unable to play the champion effectively.
Perhaps the most surprising development in Split 1 was the poor play of INTZ. They finished with the worst record in the league, and they never seemed to really grasp the meta.
They signed three new players last month in NOsFerus, Jockster, and Hidan, and they are hoping to turn things around immediately. INTZ probably shouldn’t be 60-1 given the team’s resources, but there are a lot of question marks at every position but bottom lane.
