LPL/LCK – Summer Split – 7/11

Finally the LCK is back! This gives us 4 game slates on DK and FD instead of 2. These are best of 3, and remember LCK DOES NOT release starters before hand. 

Odds

LPL Standings

LGD vs OMG

OMG is a really indecisive team right now and continues to let the opposing team dictate the pace and style of each game. This hurts them as they’re constantly losing objectives due to the lack of leadership. LGD is a much better team than a lot of people give them credit for and they should be able to handle OMG today in a 2-0 sweep.

LGD: Peanut, Kramer, Xiye, Mark

OMG: Icon, SMLZ

EDG vs RNG

EDG continues to juggle their lineup around as they attempt to stop the bleeding in the midst of a 3-5 start. This will be the first time we see Xiaoxiang tonight in the top lane for EDG and I have serious synergy concerns for this squad as a whole. They have been flip flopping their jungler position as well. JunJia draws the start today and has a somewhat tough matchup against XLB. I do think this could be a tough spot for EDG to try and right the ship and really only have interest in Hope as a potential one off in my lineups. GALA will be starting his 2nd game over Betty in the bot lane after spiking a 100 fps game in a loss to FPX. He really impressed me against LWX and I’ll be watching closely to see how he holds up against another tough ADC in Hope. RNG is also nursing a 3 game losing streak but I think they get back on track tonight with a 2-1 win.

EDG: Scout, Hope
RNG: XLB, Xiaohu, GALA, Ming

LCK Standings

T1 vs Dynamics

Dynamics has lost 3 in a row since taking the LCK by storm and their play style has basically been solved by the upper echelon teams. T1 is likely to win this series in an objective focused low kill affair.

T1: Faker, Teddy
DYN: Rich, Kuzan

Gen.G vs HLE

HLE is in complete disarray as their team is lacking synergy and cohesion. The team continually puts all the pressure on Viper to scale to end game and try to win every team fight. The problem is by the time the end game arrives, HLE is already way too far behind to get Viper online. BDD is the consensus #1 play on the slate today as I have no concerns about his scoring output in a 2-0 stomp. Rascal, Clid and Ruler are all cash plays today as well. If you want to get the lowest owned piece of the team you could roll one of the supports and hope you get the starter right. There is seemingly no rhyme or reason to who starts between Life and Kellin.

GENG: BDD(top play), Ruler, Clid, Rascal

HLE: Fade
