4.19.20 LPL Slate

We had some fairly standard games for the most part, although teams like Suning took their victories without too many kills. This slate should see a bit more action considering the teams playing, although with only 3 matchups it makes your picks all the more important. We’re getting closer to the playoffs for LPL, so teams like LNG, LGD, and WE are going to be pulling out all the stops…but we’ll see if it’s enough.

JDG has been on fire for some time now, so LGD are going to have to really surprise everyone with their picks and strategies in order to take this series. The upset is always possible, as we saw LNG take down WE, but there’s nothing really going for LGD as they head into this matchup.

killua84.9%2.91.2

Kanavi and Yagao have gathered the most kills throughout JDG’s recent games, although Zoom and LokeN aren’t too far behind. A lot of great picks here for JDG, with the only downside being if they surprise everyone and lose hard, then that is a lot of salary thrown away on players who won’t amount to much. The chances of this are low, but LGD are fighting for their playoff spot here. JDG have already secured their position, so they might try something cheeky and have it backfire, but that isn’t the best reason to bet against JDG. 

JDG Top Picks: Zoom, Kanavi, Yagao, LokeN LGD Top Picks: Peanut, Yuuki, killua

WE(+238) V EDG(-333)  (5 AM EST)

Dragons/Game2.462.47
Barons/Game.66.71
Turrets/Game5.56.5
K+D/Game2824.1

Both of these teams are coming off of a recent loss, although EDG’s defeat was far more respectable. They put up a decent fight against iG, with first Scout then Hope going positive in games they lost, even if they didn’t manage to take at least one game from iG. WE, meanwhile, dropped the ball hard when facing LNG, so the choice here seems pretty obvious at first glance. Just like LGD, WE are fighting for their lives here, so they are going to be bringing out their all, but the EDG lineup will be difficult for them to conquer.

Junjia71.1%3.184.49
Scout63.1%5.38.6
Hope72.2%8.19.4
Meiko63.9%3.41

Scout and Hope have been some of the most consistent players on EDG, while Meiko has turned out solid supporting performances. In light of this, it’s difficult to imagine players like Teacherma getting the upper hand in these matchups, but if WE do surprise, look for big plays out of beishang and Jiumeng. Teacherma could always step up, but he hasn’t been the most consistent player lately. If WE do manage to take the lead in this series, it’s also possible the kills won’t go entirely in their favor; EDG dug their heels in against iG, and they are likely to give WE a hard time regardless. Also bear in mind Aodi and Junjia are back, so we’ll have to see how EDG plays with this lineup change. If they lose map 1, those 2 could potentially get subbed out.

WE Top Picks: beishang, Jiumeng, Missing EDG Top Picks: Aodi, Scout, Hope, Meiko

iG(-1000) V LNG(+541)  (6:30 AM EST)

Turrets/Game7.14.9
K+D/Game31.825.8

LNG had some great plays and performances against WE the other day, but iG is an entirely different animal. Currently sitting at the top of the split, iG have proven to be incredibly difficult to overcome, and it’s doubtful LNG will be able to make the extra push necessary. However, it is worth considering the playoffs scenario. We have discussed playoffs in every matchup this slate, but this series is a bit different. Neither team has anything on the line, with iG securing their spot at the top and LNG losing all hope to enter the playoffs. Based on pure skill, it still seems likely iG are going to win, but odds are they haven’t put much thought and preparation into this upcoming matchup. Honestly, who would? They have more important games ahead to worry about.

Xx67.2%2.55
Maple69.6%3.77.9
Light61.1%2.49.5
Duan67.2%2.11.2

LNG’s chenlun17 was a part of WE’s downfall the other day, so if iG really falls apart due to lack of preparation (and not really caring about the outcome) then he could perform well alongside Maple. That is a bit of a risky move, however, so for iG, focus on iG’s Leyan, Puff, and Southwind. Given they have nothing to lose, iG might even put TheShy on a carry like Vayne and let him do his thing, which would be great for his score. Given the overall strength of iG, they will likely handle this game fairly well even without too much preparation, so don’t assume LNG will win just to send a message. 

iG Top Picks: TheShy, Leyan, Puff, Southwind LNG Top Picks: chenlun17, Maple, Light, Duan
