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.
Estar vs OMG
ES has been terrible and in an effort to stop a 6 game losing streak, they’re going to Rat over Wink at the ADC spot. Call me crazy, but I just don’t think that’s going to make much of a difference. OMG is a much better mid to late game team than ES and I see OMG taking this series 2-1 and they have a chance to be one of the top scoring teams of the night. Right now ownership projections are higher on ES so there is a big edge to running OMG stacks in all formats. Icon and Smlz are going to smoke this ES bot lane, book it.
JDG vs VG
I don’t love this game for GPPs because on paper it looks like it will be slower paced with low kill upside. I do think this is where you want to grab a one off in Kanavi. He is one of the best junglers in the world and should have no trouble handling Leyan/Aix.(Leyan is starting but they’ve been subbing to Aix after game 1 losses). Loken is also in play as part of a 2 man stack with Kanavi for your cash games. JDG 2-0’s VG and that’s really all there is to it.
JDG: Kanavi, Loken, LvMao, Team Spot
Afreeca Freecs vs Gen.G
This is a game that has 3 games written all over it and I’m interested in seeing the war between Fly/Mystic and BDD/Ruler. The current trend for AF is to beat up on the bottom feeder teams and struggle against the upper echelon. I love this spot for Gen.G tonight as they likely will be under owned and have the upside to completely break the slate tonight. At the end of the day, Afreece makes too many mistakes and I expect Gen.G to punish them. If you’re going to use the support for Gen.G just make sure you’re up late as we usually get starters for the LCK first game prior to lock and you don’t want to get caught with Life when it’s a Kellin night.
AF: Kiin, Mystic
Gen.G: Rascal, Clid, BDD, Ruler
Dynamics vs Damwon Gaming
Dynamics are coming off an impressive win over T1 after controlling the early game and snowballing a big lead. That won’t happen against DWG because they’re one of the best early game teams in the LCK. Dynamics does a good job of limiting their deaths so I do have some concern about the DWG upside in this matchup. Canyon, Showmaker, and Beryl make excellent cash game targets though and should be heavily owned tonight.
DWG: Canyon, ShowMaker, Ghost, Beryl
DYN: Kuzan, Deokdam
