LPL’s Thursday action is packed with bottom-half teams. That still provides you with an opportunity to capitalize. We take a look at how with some prop bets to consider on Picklebet.
Correct score: 2-1 to LNG Esports (3.40)
Rogue Warriors have been in awful shape right through this season. That’s one of the reasons they are massive underdogs in this match. LNG Esports are undeniably the better team in this game but they haven’t had a terrific season themselves. They are now 10th with a 7-8 record. Despite Rogue Warriors’ awful season, which includes 1 win in 15 matches, they still have a chance in this game. They might not win outright but there is a good chance they can win one map. LNG Esports still have enough firepower to win two maps. Also, odds of 3.40 for this result is quite compelling.
Rogue Warriors will continue to rely on their most potent offensive weapon in Haro, who has averaged 2.91 kills per game this season. Only three players – Haro, Forge and Ziv – have managed to play all 32 maps in this spring split so far.
Total maps: Over 2.5 (2.85)
This is another game that isn’t skewed as heavily as the odds suggest. LGD Gaming have managed to win just 4 of 14 matches in spring, which puts them at 13th spot on the LPL standings. Invictus Gaming started strongly but have lost a lot of momentum and confidence as this campaign has progressed. They are now ninth with an 8-7 record. Considering these two factors, not many can say with any level of certainty that LGD Gaming cannot win a map. If they do, the likelihood is that this game will head to a decisive third map.
Kramer has been LGD Gaming’s most influential weapon in the lanes. He has generated 3.54 kills along with 3.61 assists per game at a team-leading KDA of 2.99. He will need more support from Uniboy and Cult as this match progresses, particularly in order to pick up an important elemental dragon or baron.
