LPL/LCK – Summer Split – 7/9

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

Vici Gaming vs FunPlus Phoenix

VG have looked so much better overall with Zeka in the starting lineup. They still struggle in the early game, but if they keep it close, they are very capable of winning this game. FPX is lead by Doinb in the MID lane, but he has been having to help out in both TOP and BOT lanes, which normally doesnt end well in LOL. FPX is going to need to clean up their scaling game, and i think this match will be closer than people think it will be. I do like FPX to win, but i see a path to VG winning and it wouldnt shock me on bit to see VG upset 2-1 here.

VG: Leyan / Zeka / iBoy

FPX: Doinb / Lwx / Crisp

LGD vs JDG

Surprisingly this is the closest spread of the slate. Kanavi seems to have finally figured out this meta and I think JDG steam roll here. Last time out vs EDG they looked really good. WE are getting a massive discount of JDG here tonight and honestly see them winning this with ease, 2-0. This should be another high kill match.

LDG: Fade
JDG: LokeN / Kanavi / Yagao

LCK Standings

T1 vs SeolHaeOne Prince

This one is pretty easy. We got the team that dies the most in the LCK vs a team that is playing a lot faster in the summer. Prince is last in every category in the LCK and this should be an easy one for T1. Even with the huge spread here, i like T1 to rack up the kills in this and win easily 2-0.

T1: Everyone
SP: HyBrid (One off GPP)

DAMWON vs Afreeca Freecs

Dont fall out of your seating reading this next sentence. This will be the bloodiest match of the slate. Yes, i said an LCK game will be the bloodiest match on today’s slate. Both these teams are averaging almost 17 kills a game. Both teams are very aggressive and very good at team fighting. This one is going to be fun. DWG is the better Mid to late game team and i think that is what gives them the advantage here tonight. Only way AF can win in my opinion is if they get an early lead in the Mid or BOT lanes and snowball it into a win. This one will be fun but i like DWG to sweep here 2-0 in 2 high kill close games.

AF: Mystic / Fly / Spirit

DWG: ShowMaker / Canyon / Ghost
