The LPL’s Week 7 is just around the corner, and teams can see the finish line. As the league gears up for the seventh week of action, TOP Esports and Rogue Warriors still find themselves at opposite extremes of the table. With playoffs on the player’s minds, teams will begin their final push to make into the top 8.
TOP Esports @ 1.21
A clash between the first-placed team and the second-placed team will kick off Week 7. Should TOP confirm their favoritism against FPX, they will continue their undefeated run towards playoffs. TOP will want to take down V5, and completely isolate themselves in first place.
While Victory Five are looking like a top team, they are yet to take down another top team. With 8 wins being the mark necessary to make it into playoffs, V5 are a match win away from that. If they manage to pull an upset here, then it will cement them as a candidate for the title. TOP Esports lost only 2 maps for now, while V5 has lost 6 of them. TOP Esports is showing us that they are the strongest team in the Summer Split of LPL for now, so there is no reason here to bet against them.
Suning Gaming @ 1.46
The second match of the day will feature Suning versus BLG. BLG won their last match, and still have a shot to make it to the playoffs. Their problem is their schedule. A lot of the teams that they need to face are also looking to confirm their playoff spot, so they will be just as hungry as BLG, who themselves need a win here to gain momentum to face the other mid-table teams.
On the other side of the rift, Suning has had an interesting split so far. After starting well, they slumped. However, they now are back on a four match win-streak and are looking ready for playoffs. Suning are currently ranked as 6th team in the split with 6 wins and 3 losses, while Bilibili are ranked way lower, as the 13th team in the split with only 3 wins out of 8 games played. Because of everything they have showed in this split until now, Suning are heavy favourites here.
