We’re back to a 2 gamer, and the LPL is so large we still have teams facing each other for the first time this split. Given the way things are going so far, it’s expected to be fairly one-sided, though the upset isn’t impossible here. OMG and DMO aren’t likely to win but we’ve seen them pull through at times, so you never know.

OMG(+252) V SN(-357) (5 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||33:05||32:53|
OMG’s newest adc could be an interesting development, and they’ve been known to do well when they can pull off the upset. The only issue is they’re against SN, a team that has done very well for themselves so far. Still, the upset is possible and could be profitable for anyone taking OMG.
OMG Top Picks:
SN Top Picks:
If you can fit huanfeng in he’s a worthwhile shot, but the SN players are going to be pricey. Since OMG isn’t the worst choice for the upset, it’d be ideal to grab more VG players from the next matchup. If you do go VG/SN, you can’t get 2 adcs, so you’ll have to choose between huanfeng and iBOY. SofM and Angel are solid picks regardless so don’t fade them if you go for the favorites. As for OMG, there are great choices for the potential upset. Eric is worth the chance, since an OMG upset will likely mean a successful first series for him.
VG(-417) V DMO(+287) (7 AM EST)
|Avg. Game Length||32:56||32:08|
VG might not be as solid as SN, but they’ve seen more success recently and they’re against a far weaker team, which is saying a lot. DMO might not be as bad as spring split V5, but they’re pretty close. Given VG’s lineup has done well since Zeka has been starting, this should be an easy matchup.
VG Top Picks
DMO Top Picks
Cube is actually more expensive on DK, so that might not be the best investment. You’ll save some salary with a top with some decent chances at success in Bin or Curse, so you might as well go for it. Still, if you end up investing in Cube, it’s not like you’ll be disappointed. DMO’s whole lineup isn’t really ideal, even for the contrarian choices. If you really believe in it then you should be stacking 4 DMO players, so we aren’t too keen on advocating for any specific picks. Even if the matchup is possible, it won’t be as profitable as an OMG victory. Meanwhile, VG has some fantastic choices and could prove to be a great 4 stack if you manage to afford it, though you’ll have trouble with that if you go in on SN.
