Top Esports and Royal Never Give Up, two of the best teams in the LPL, are in action in Thursday’s games. Here is a look at some picks to consider for your Picklebet bet slip.
Royal Never Give Up (1.29)
When there is such a mismatch in quality and form, the best way to analyse a match is to forecast an upset. If the odds of that happening are just plain implausible, then it’s best to go for a straight-maps win. In this case, it’s not as skewed towards RNG. However, it’s still fairly unlikely that they will lose two maps against this LNG Esports team. RNG are currently second on the points table with an 8-1 season record. They have won their last three matches as well. LNG Esports, on the other hand, are positioned ninth on the table with a 5-4 season record.
Gala has been the standout performer for RNG this season, accumulating 6.14 kills per game along with 5.91 assists. Cryin has racked up an average of 3.23 kills and 8.27 assists per game with a KDA of 6.49. Wei has also chipped in with a kill participation of well over 11 (3.55 kills and 8.23 assists).
Map handicap: Top Esports -1.5 (1.37)
Top Esports were 3-3 at the two-week break last month. They used that break to rest and recover, and have now won two straight matches to move quickly to 5-3 for the season (seventh in the LPL table). They are arguably the best team in the LPL. They are inarguably the most explosive team in the league. Oh My God are currently 16th with a 1-8 record. There is just too much firepower in that Top Esports team to drop a map against this highly skilled Top Esports team.
JackeyLove has averaged a stunning 6.24 kills with 5.71 assists per game this season. He even has 2.41 deaths, but that comes with the territory. Knight has led the efficiency for Top Esports with 4 kills and 1.59 deaths per game along with 6.65 assists at a KDA of 6.7. This bot laner and mid laner combination will continue to be a hard task for OMG to stop during team fights.
