The LPL rolls on with another couple of matches on Monday. Here is a look at some predictions for you to consider from Monday’s LPL schedule.
Victory Five (2.70)
This is a matchup between two of the worst teams in the LPL in the summer of 2021. Ultra Prime have won just 1 of 7 matches so far while Victory Five have lost all seven. That additional win is a big reason why the odds are so much in favour of Ultra Prime. However, in a league as tightly contested as the LPL, there isn’t much of a margin at all, at least not enough to beckon odds of 2.70 for Victory Five. While V5 have a map win rate of just 7%, the odds are high enough to make for a lucrative bet.
Victory Five have already used eight players in the summer of the LPL so far. Kepler has led the offensive production for the team with 2.2 kills per map along with 2.13 assists. That has been the most for Victory Five, which is indicative of the lack of depth in this roster in this split. Uniboy will have to use his experience to improve and help Victory Five register their first win of this split.
Map handicap: Edward Gaming -1.5 (1.47)
Edward Gaming are at the top of the LPL’s summer split in 2021 currently. They have a 7-1 record and started the season strongly with seven straight wins. Oh My God have also overachieved a bit, putting up five wins out of seven matches. Still, there is a fairly discernible difference in skill, quality and momentum between these two sides. If Edward Gaming win the first map, then the second might be a mere formality if they can also pick up an early dragon because the team fights will simply be dominated by the league leaders.
Viper has been in stunning offensive form at LPL so far. He has already put up five kills per game, taking his kill participation well over 11. He has a KDA of 6.39. Jiejie is leading the team in efficiency (3.65 kills and 8.76 assists with just 1.65 deaths per map). His KDA of 7.54 is the second best in the entire league for a player who has played at least four maps.
