Around all the big League of Legends leagues, LPL 2020 Spring group stage will start first. Let’s remember that LPL features two top 4 Worlds 2019 teams, Invictus Gaming and world champs FunPlus Phoenix. We will cover 2 LPL matches for Monday, January 13th.
Funplus Phoenix @ 1.47
According to the picklebet odds, FPX are heavy favourites here. Luckily this match is best of 3 so it makes it easier to bet on match winner. I think that FPX is an even bigger favourite to win LPL 2020 Spring season than they were last season. Their lineup looks amazing, and with the addition of Khan to the top lane they will be a force to be reckoned with. On the other side, it will be very interesting to see how IG will rotate its new players. Puff, Southwind, and Fate are new players to the Invictus Gaming lineup. Players that will fight for the main roster and lineup. The right combination of players can make a deadly team that will fight for the top 3 positions during this split. FPX are definitely favourites to take this BO3 series, and odds on them are quite decent. This is for sure an interesting match to bet on. Our prediction for the match winner: FunPlus Phoenix (FPX).
LNG Esports @ 1.66
After adding 2 main and 2 sub players to the team, LNG’s lineup looks a lot differently compared to last season. On the other side, LGD added only 1 player to their main lineup, Korean player Peanut who came from Gen.G. It’s a big boost for their lineup, and with 2 Korean players in their main team, LGD is looking pretty decent going into the new season. Although both teams have made several important changes to their roster and coaching personnel, I feel like LNG are the better prepared team. Yuuki, while a solid mid laner, will have a hard time stacking up with Maple, while there is slight concern whether Peanut will be able to defeat Xx. The top lane seems like it can go either way, while LNG hold an advantage in the bottom lane. All things considered, LNG should come out slightly ahead. Our winner prediction: LNG Esports.
