Invictus Gaming, the leaders of the Pro League, are in action in a tight contest against JD Gaming. We break down predictions from that and two other matches in Thursday’s action from the LPL.
Royal Never Give Up (1.13)
Royal Never Give Up have been a steady team right through this split. Currently, they are positioned fifth in the standings with a 7-4 series record, along with a 16-10 games record. They are about one win away from moving quickly into the top three in the LPL. LGD Gaming, on the other hand, have struggled to find any momentum: they are 14th in the standings.
Betty has led this RNG team from an offensive perspective. He has been averaging 4.31 kills along with just 1.58 deaths. He has been ably supported by XLB and Ming.
Edward Gaming (1.29)
LNG Esports have been struggling in the LPL to find some consistency. In fact, they are currently on a five-game losing streak, which will hurt their confidence significantly. That has led to them occupying the 13th position currently. With a 7-4 record, Edward Gaming are understandably favourites in this contest right from the outset.
Hope and Scout have been sensational for Edward Gaming this split. Hope is averaging 4.83 kills while Scout has contributed with 3.41 kills. Hope has a KDA of 8.64 and a creep score per minute of 9.38 as well, which makes him one of the best players in the entire LPL.
Invictus Gaming (1.34)
This is the blockbuster matchup of the day. Invictus Gaming have moved to the top of the LPL standings after Estar’s loss on Tuesday. Invictus Gaming, with a 10-1 series record, will be looking to consolidate on that position considering Estar are hot on their heels. So far, Invictus Gaming have a win percentage of 77% (20-6 games record), best in the Spring split so far.
Puff has been arguably the best player in the LPL so far. He has been averaging 5.83 kills per game, highest in the split. Rookie is not far behind him with 4.48 kills. TheShy has also done a stellar job as Invictus’ top laner, contributing with more than three kills a game.
