4.7.20 LOL LPL Slate

Yesterday’s games proved to be mostly on the mark. As expected of V5, they ended up losing 0-2, although  Y4 did rack up a nice KDA on Game 2. OMG winning wasn’t a huge surprise, especially with the relatively low scoring (although 6 kills on Ornn was an interesting development. Sometimes kills get spread out in strange ways.) RW did end up taking a game on TES, although the players on TES scored very well overall with their 2-1 victory. Nothing too out of the ordinary in these matches, which was a relief after watching some of the games this past weekend. 

Today marks yet another LPL only slate, but if you’re a big fan of LCK then no worries: those games are returning for Wednesday’s lineups. Let’s dive in. 

Players

StatisticFantasy Points*Players drafted as Captain earn 1.5x fantasy point values

Deaths-1 Pt

10+ K/A Bonus+2 Pts (10 Kills or 10 Assists in a single game)

Teams

StatisticFantasy Points*Players drafted as Captain earn 1.5x fantasy point values
Turrets+1 Pt
Dragons+2 Pts
Barons+3 Pts
First Blood+2 Pts
Win+2 Pts
Win in Under 30 Minutes Bonus+2 Pts

Quick note: We’ve replaced the First Blood% stat with Kills and Deaths per game. LPL never seemed to record First Blood%, and it nets you an entire 2 points per game, assuming your team actually gets first blood. Most of the teams are fairly close to 50% anyway, so it’s basically a hard to predict stat that won’t matter much at all. Kills and Deaths per game has much more bearing and should help when making player decisions for your roster. 

DMO(+123) V BLG(-161)  (2 AM EST)

Turrets/Game5.35.5
K+D/Game24.622.8

These teams are both relatively weak, making this a potentially sketchy matchup. This isn’t going to be as easy as the SN versus V5 series, so anything could happen. BLG is ultimately the favored team, with FoFo standing out with good scores even in a number of defeats. There isn’t much here to suggest a promising high kill count on either team.

XinMo70.7%2.6.9

If you’re willing to give this series a shot, BLG does have some stronger players. FoFo and jinjiao seem to be the best options out of all of them, but if DMO pulls through then those two picks could prove devastating. The last time we saw xiye, he was misplaying pretty heavily against EDG, missing skillshots so often we had to double check we weren’t accidentally watching LCS. If you do go for DMO, lean towards the bot lane, but this matchup seems rather hopeless to begin with. 

DMO Top Picks: GALA, Mark BLG Top Picks: FoFo, jinjiao

ES(-149) V JDG(+115)  (4:30 AM EST)

Dragons/Game3.172.58
Barons/Game1.17.77
Turrets/Game7.64.6
K+D/Game29.622.5

If this matchup appeared one week ago, eStar would be the clear favorites. However, over this past week they have lost against Vici Gaming and RNG. Neither of these teams would be considered a joke, but given how strong eStar had looked it was surprising to see them fall. Meanwhile, JDG has played and won against Suning and LNG, two teams who aren’t the greatest. Despite eStar’s poor performances, it is worth remembering JDG’s stats have been bolstered lately due to their games against weaker teams. With all this in mind, let’s look at the players. 

ESKP%KDACS/M
Xiaobai55.2%3.87

Kanavi79.6%5.56.1
Yagao68.2%5.48.2
LokeN69.3%6.610
LvMao72.4%4.41

Kanavi has been having some great games recently, and if JDG can keep up the momentum he wouldn’t be a bad choice. Given their recent failures, ES might want Xiaobai on tankier champions like Ornn to be safe, leaving room for Wei to pick damage dealers in the jungle. This is no guarantee, as they can go all in to protect Wink and Cryin while their other players peel. Given this, Wei might not be the safest jungle pick if you decide to go with eStar. With eStar, this makes their bot and mid lanes the most attractive, though out of the two bot might be safer. 

ES Top Picks: Wei, Cryin, Wink, ShiauC JDG Top Picks: Zoom, Kanavi

 LNG (+509) V FPX(-909)  (5 AM EST)

Dragons/Game2.522.84
Barons/Game.55.64
Turrets/Game57.3
K+D/Game26.125.6

Something interesting about this matchup: despite FPX having an overall better K+D/Game score, their damage per minute is actually a little lower than LNG. This could be for a number of reasons, but it might speak to efficiency on the part of FPX. They haven’t played too recently, their last series taking place on March 30th. Odds are they’ve had plenty of time to practice, and since they’re against a team like LNG they should look good tomorrow.

Doinb73.4%5.98.4
Lwx70.1%6.69.6
Crisp69.5%5.61

Khan has always been a rather aggressive top laner, and unless he chokes, he should have a good performance against LNG. Tian is a solid choice, Doinb is very good at this game, and the FPX bot lineup has great potential for tomorrow. It’s hard to choose which LNG players should be on the roster, but if you believe in the upset, it will likely be centered around Light’s performance. FPX is honestly better in the other roles, so if LNG can stay alive and get Light huge, they might be able to carry. Still, there’s not much else to say as FPX are definitely the favorites. 

LNG Top Picks: Light, Duan FPX Top Picks: Khan, Tian, Doinb, Lwx
