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.

OMG(+252) V FPX(-357) (5 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||33:16||31:20|
This is normally where we’d give FPX the easy victory here, but they’ve been down on their luck recently. Granted, 2 of their opponents were huge teams (JDG and TES) but they also lost to RW and VG. FPX is the stronger team, and OMG is probably the weakest team they’ve played since their loss streak began, but you never know.
OMG Top Picks:
FPX Top Picks:
We’ve got the usual picks for FPX, though it’s uncertain how GimGoon will do. It’s more likely the other FPX players will grab the kills. We usually don’t include as many picks for the other team, particularly when that team is OMG, but as we mentioned this could be an interesting slate. So don’t rule out the OMG picks here, though they’ve been a little inconsistent with who plays well. FPX is still ultimately the safer team.
VG(-167) V EDG(+127) (7 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||32:43||34:47|
This should be a fairly close matchup. VG has been doing very well for themselves recently while EDG has fallen flat. It’s a bit surprising how poorly EDG has been given how much potential their roster has. They tend to do very well for themselves when they win, but if recency matters at all to you, then VG looks nice here. Either way, this matchup has some great potential for high scores.
VG Top Picks:
EDG Top Picks:
Jiejie might be a bit risky, but he’s a good pick if EDG can end up going 2-0. Otherwise there’s a decent chance he’ll be subbed out. Still, the main damage dealers are looking pretty good here, with xiaoxiang added in. His stats aren’t amazing, especially since he’s currently 0/4, but if he were to win there’d be a decent chance he does well for his team. Not to mention Cube isn’t the strongest top laner, so he has some leeway there. VG’s carries will do well for you, and we’d add Aix as well, but unfortunately it’s Leyan starting so avoid the jungle there. Prices for these teams are all fairly close together, so you’re going to have to get creative with your lineups (as is generally the case with these 2 gamers.) We’ve included all of the adcs given how up in the air this slate has the potential to be, but you should be trying for 2 adcs in your lineups regardless. It might not be possible in these 2 gamers, but the games might be close which could lead to some ideal stacking options. It’s not always the case in these Bo3s, but a few one offs might work well. In that case, don’t be afraid to go beyond the picks; there are sure to be some strange winning lineups in this slate.
