No. 3 plays four in the LPL on Wednesday. No. 5 is also in action. We break down the bets to consider on Picklebet for Wednesday’s two games from the Pro League.
Map handicap: Top Esports -1.5 (1.29)
Odds of 1.29 aren’t exactly compelling but it’s probably fair for a match that is as heavily skewed as this towards the favourite. Top Esports have been in tearaway form since the two-week LPL break. They are now fifth in the LPL with a 10-4 record. For a bit of context, they went into that break at 3-3 for the season. That one loss was in the previous match. They have been one of the most aggressive teams in the world for a while now, and that modus operandi won’t change, especially against a team struggling at 14th on the LPL table with a 3-11 season record.
JackeyLove’s kill proficiency has reduced over the last few weeks. Still, he has led Top Esports in kills with 4.94 per game. Top Esports have been blessed with players that continue to chip in and contribute from a kill participation standpoint. In fact, only 369 doesn’t have a kill participation of over 10. He also has 2.87 kills and 6.16 assists per map, an indicator of how aggressive they are in the lanes.
Team WE (2.30)
This is a delectable matchup between two of the best teams in the LPL this season. Both of these teams have identical season records (11 wins in 14 matches). Edward Gaming are third, while Team WE are fourth. Considering how close these two teams are, backing Team WE with odds of 2.30 seems highly tempting. Team WE are also coming into this game on the back of six successive wins in the LPL. They have also been more consistent over a longer period of time, which will also make a difference.
Jiumeng has been the most potent offensive weapon for Team WE with 4.66 kills and 5.84 assists per game. Beishang has been the most efficient player, with 3.59 kills along with 7.03 assists, which has built his KDA to 5.96. These two will be hard to stop in the lanes in this matchup.
