Every matchup yesterday went about as expected, which is a welcome sight after so many upsets and crazy results. We have some closer games tonight though so it will not be as easy to determine the winners. Thankfully we have another LPL only slate so we don’t have to worry about LCK lineups which is always nice. This is sure to be a fun slate though as both of these series should be fairly close.

WE(-179) V LGD(+136) (5 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||33:58||33:30|
These teams are right next to each other in the standings right now so this is an important matchup for both teams. Team WE has been able to take care of pretty much every team below them thus far, while LGD has been very up and down this split. WE definitely has the advantage here and they should be able to score well across the board assuming they continue their strong form here.
WE Top Picks:
LGD Top Picks:
This matchup has the 2 best top laners on the slate, so it may just be ideal to start with your TOP from whichever team you choose from this matchup. Every player from WE is viable today as they all have high kill participation and could all be the top scorers at their respective positions. Teacherma does have a tendency to play more of a supportive mid role, so his score could suffer, but he has a fairly easy matchup and should be able to score well regardless. For LGD to upset here, Peanut will need to dominate the jungle while xiye and Kramer are going to have to win their lanes which will be a tough task. LangX and Mark are serviceable options but are not as likely to score big in a win as their teammates.
V5(-147) V IG(+113) (7 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||30:08||31:13|
This should be a closer matchup as both of these teams have looked great recently and they both find themselves in the top-4 right now. V5 is coming off an upset win against TES while IG has won all 3 series since making Baolan the starting Support. Invictus Gaming’s winning experience should give them a slight advantage in this series, but V5 could continue to shock the league. This is a very tough matchup for both teams, so there is merit to playing either side of this series, especially on a 2 game slate.
V5 Top Picks:
IG Top Picks:
Rookie should be able to win this mid matchup fairly easily, making him the top option from this game if you are going with IG. After him, every other IG player should score well in a win, but TheShy continues to lag behind his team, although he has looked much better since the addition of Baolan to the starting lineup. On the side of V5, SamD has been the standout player and ppgod has looked great alongside him this split. Weiwei could score well as he can camp TheShy like many junglers have this split, but the mid matchup is a bit worrying since he may have to help out Mole more often than usual. BiuBiu hasn’t scored too well himself, but it’s always fun to target TheShy for DFS. Still, grabbing a top laner from the other series may be the best idea today.
