Once again, we’re delving into the illustrious world of Brazilian LoL to bet on their matches. These games take place right before the playoffs, for which 2 of the teams have qualified. We’re likely to get a slate covering the semifinals and finals of the playoffs, so stay tuned as to what happens here.

PRG(-244) V RDP(+181) (12 PM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||33:46||33:24|
This matchup looks pretty straightforward seeing as RDP have one of the worst records in the CBLOL. What stands out, however, is their recent victory against #1 team VK. They changed the rosters around a little bit, putting their Mid on Senna, and sub Aithusa on Kassadin. They might run this type of composition again, so keep that in mind, so we’ll keep the main roster in the stats. Also remember, VK have already made the playoffs, and we’ve seen teams like FPX lose matches once their position is secured. So don’t hold out too much hope for RDP. Even if you think Aithusa will play and do well, he’s not actually available to pick for Draftkings, so that’s interesting.
If RDP play Aithusa again, mid lane could be a bit unpredictable. As for the other lanes, fNb and Garo are sure to be decent picks. Glowcore and Patrick likely won’t compare, and even if they bust out a strange team composition, PRG are likely to be giving it their all. Yampi and Wos might be decent pickups as well if you’re in need of a more secure jungler and support, but due to RDP’s standing, PRG’s players are some of the most expensive. They might be a bit hard to stack.
PRG Top Picks: fNb, Yampi, Garo, Wos RDP Top Picks: Sephis, BocaJR
PNG(-132) V FUR(+101) (12:50 PM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||34:53||35:31|
PNG have been on a bit of a losing streak lately, although they did manage to take a game against PRG today. They have been one of the more favored teams, although it is also strange they lost to RDP (maybe they couldn’t handle the Yasuo mid.) At any rate, FURIA has looked better recently, having only lost to VK and FLA. This is likely to be a closer matchup, so it’s sure to be exciting.
The JNG/MID combos on both teams are strong, so depending on whose chances you like more, they would be good picks. The ADCS haven’t had the greatest scores, although in a closer game like this, that could always change. This matchup is ultimately a bit difficult to tell, so this could be a bit sketchy, so it might be one to avoid. There isn’t too much else to say about this matchup, so look at the rest of the games in the slate and decide if you want to invest. The players are a bit cheaper, but there might be better games to focus on this slate.
PNG Top Picks: SeongHwan, Tinowns, KeY FUR Top Picks: Minerva, Anyyy, Damage
VK(-200) V KBM(+151) (1:40 PM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||33:43||33:30|
Despite their previous loss to RDP, VK have been looking very good. They aren’t likely to give up another game just before the playoffs, and their record indicates they’ll do very well against KBM. Even if they aren’t preparing for this game at all, there isn’t much to indicate KBM are going to do well here… although keep in mind KBM did take down FLA today.
The VK carries are likely to be great investments here, along with Grell (assuming he plays. Caos played their last game against RDP, so we don’t know.) But definitely prioritize the carries if you can afford to fit it in your salary. So, NOsFerus and Klaus will be good choices, along with Professor for the assists. KBM isn’t worth investing in too much, but if VK does manage to fall apart in another game, Paraing, Wiz, and Tutsz have been performing well lately. If you believe VK are sacrificing this game to prepare for playoffs, then a KBM lineup will be rather cheap, so there are a lot of options.
VK Top Picks: NOsFerus, Klaus, Professor KBM Top Picks: Parang, Wiz, Tutsz, Ceos
FLA(-185) V ITZ(+141) (2:30 PM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||35:05||35:00|
Here we have another team already set for the playoffs, FLA, who have had a couple of off performances lately. It seems to be a trend, so it’s not as if this team is Leagues above the rest of the league, although they have something going for them. Given the proximity to the playoffs matches, it is even more likely for ITZ to make a comeback in this matchup than those against VK, so keep an eye on this one.
Absolut and Goku are sure to be great choices for FLA if they can pull through, but maybe keep an open mind about ITZ. Their roster has had some great performances on Hauz, Shini, and micaO, and they even took down VK not too long ago. They might end up being the cheaper underdogs to focus on this slate. The only other similar matchup is VK against KBM, and although that could very well go the same way, ITZ are looking great going into this game. As with the previous matchup, it isn’t necessarily the best strategy to assume a team already in the playoffs isn’t focusing on these few matches, so be sure to consider your choices carefully. There are some uncertain matchups in this slate, so things could go a lot of different ways. Once we get to the playoffs, it’s likely to become a bit more stable.
FLA Top Picks: Ranger, Goku, Absolut, JoJo ITZ Top Picks: Shini, Hauz, micaO, Redbert
