The top teams of the Pro League are back in action in Friday’s scheduled games. Here is a look at some teams and props to consider from these matches.
Total maps: Over 2.5 (2.75)
These odds and the matchup makes this market very enticing. Yes, it’s true that FunPlus Phoenix start this encounter as heavy favourites. However, OMG aren’t going to be blown away nor are they going to be intimidated. OMG are positioned fifth in the LPL standings, with a 4-2 series record and 9-6 games record.
These odds of 2.75 are basically broken down into whether OMG can win one map. Chances of that happening are probably even, making this payout attractive. FunPlus are two spots ahead of them in the Spring standings with a 5-2 series record. No viable reason why OMG can’t win a map.
If this was a best-of-one encounter, there would have been a higher probability of LNG causing an upset in this match. However, in a best of three, the chances are that the more skilled team will have a better chance of coming back and using their skill to eventually prevail. eStar are sitting atop the standings with a commendable 7-1 and 14-5 games record. They are on a three-match winning streak as well, which bodes well for their confidence.
Their mid and ADC combination of Cryin and Wink have been terrific this season. Together, they have 5.11 and 5.68 kills respectively for eStar, leading their offensive charge right through this split. ShaiuC is averaging over 11 assists per game, which puts him second in the entire LPL.
JD Gaming (1.65)
While Royal Never Give Up have been steady, splitting both their series and games down the middle so far (3-3 series and 7-7 games record), they might not be able to stay abreast with the offensive might of JD Gaming in this contest. JD Gaming have been slightly better and more consistent through the split. JD are currently tied for third in the LPL with a 5-2 series record.
Loken is the undisputed star of this JD Gaming team. He has a stunning KDA of 8.95 built on a terrific kill participation rate (4.41 kills and 5.59 assists). He has been assisted well by Kanavi, who has 3.41 kills and 7.29 assists, giving him a solid KDA of his own at 6.07.
