The LCK continues on Thursday with another couple of matches, including Gen.g and T1 in action. Here are some bets for you to consider on Picklebet from the LCK.
Map handicap: Gen.g Esports -1.5 (1.73)
Gen.g are an outstanding LCK team. They have proved that repeatedly over the last few splits, outperforming their expectations. This season has not started differently. They have won their first four matches of the summer split to move to the top of the LCK table. That’s the standard they are setting for themselves in a tough league in Korea. Sandbox Gaming have started by splitting their four matches down the middle. There is a gulf in quality, skill and momentum, all influential factors in deciding this match. Gen.g will start quickly and maintain that level through the entirety of Thursday’s fixture.
Gen.g have maintained the core of their roster for several splits now. They are led, in terms of offensive production, by Ruler, who has put up 4.27 kills per game so far. The efficiency of the team, though, is led by Clid. He has 2.91 kills, 1.27 deaths and 5.45 assists per game with a KDA of 6.57, highest in his team. Rascal and Bdd have performed admirably as well, adding over three kills per game to add to an all-round roster.
T1 have not had a terrific start to summer but they have still managed to stay in touch with two wins and two losses. They are currently fifth in the LCK having won 5 of 9 maps to date. Nongshim Redforce have made a much better start with three wins in four matches. However, Nonshim are coming off their first loss of the league, which might hurt their confidence. Nonetheless, T1 will be desperate to compensate for a sluggish start with a strong beginning on Thursday against a middling Nongshim team. This might go to a third map but odds of 1.35 aren’t bad for a team of the calibre of T1.
Teddy has led the offensive production for T1 with four kills per game so far in this split. Canna hasn’t been too bad either, producing 3.11 kills along with 5.44 assists at a KDA of 4.53. These two players will be tough to stop in the lanes, which is where T1 have a discernible advantage.
