Edward Gaming and Royal Never Give Up will face each other on Tuesday for a spot in the LPL spring final against FunPlus Phoenix. We take a look at some bets and props to consider for your Picklebet action from Tuesday’s match.
Royal Never Give Up (2.31)
Both these teams will be high on confidence after playing their respective parts in eliminating Top Esports from the competition. First, Edward Gaming beat Top Esports in the fourth round 3-0, which pushed Top down to the loser’s bracket. In that game, RNG stayed clutch in the fifth map to advance to the semi-finals. It’s hard to find distinct advantages for Edward Gaming in this game. RNG finished at the top of the regular season with a 14-2 season record, while Edward Gaming finished second. RNG will have enough confidence and momentum after posting a hard-fought 3-2 win. Esports is not like any other sport, in the sense that a long match will not have as big an impact. The odds for RNG are also quite compelling, at 2.31 on Picklebet.
Gala has been RNG’s most proficient player, putting up 5.54 kills and 5.54 assists at a KDA of 7.19. He even had a creep score of 331 during that regular season. Three other players – Wei, Xiaohu and Cryin – had over three kills per game. RNG have no problems with kill participation and production because of their dominance in the lanes.
Map handicap: RNG +1.5 (1.61)
If you’d prefer to deploy a lower risk profile, then this market is not bad either. This market indicates that Royal Never Give Up have to prevent a loss by two or more maps. They will do that if they win two maps, irrespective of the result. In a best-of-five encounter, with the level of depth and quality that they have in their roster, that is more likely than unlikely, which is why you see the lower odds as well.
