League of Legends – LPL 2019 Summer
Saturday, June 1
- Dominus vs Edward
This year, SinoDragon rebranded into Dominus. Some eSports sites and fans still call them SinoDragon. No matter their name, they’ve played very well in recent matches. They’ve won 5-of-6. Three of the victories were extremely impressive: 2:0 over Royal Never Give Up, 2:0 versus Suning Gaming, and 3:0 against Edward Gaming.
Edward Gaming’s last recorded LoL battle was versus Dominus. Before that, Invictus beat them 2:1. Edward should find it tough to turn the tables on Dominus on Saturday.
eSports Betting Pick: Dominus
- JD Gaming vs FunPlus Phoenix
JD Gaming lost 3 in a row to end March. They went 4-1 in four matches in April, though. They beat Team WE, Royal Never Give Up, and FunPlus. The lone loss was 0:3 to Invictus.
FunPlus Phoenix has been on a tear. They’ve gone 6-1 in their last 7. FunPlus’ lone loss was to JD Gaming. It sure looks as if FunPlus has a chance to turn the tables on their rivals in this. FunPlus beat Edward, Topsports, Victory, Vici, Bilibili, and Dominus in their last 7. They’ve got a great shot of taking down JD on June 1.
eSports Betting Pick: FunPlus
Sunday, June 2
- LGD vs Victory 5
LGD has won 4-of-5. They’ve beaten Edward, JD, Snake, and Oh My God. Dominus beat them 2:1 on March 22.
Although LGD is in great form, they weren’t in such great form before winning 4 of their last 5. They had dropped 5 in a row. One of the losses was 0:2 to Victory 5 on Feb. 23. Victory 5 is in horrendous current form, though. They’ve lost 9 of their last 10 matches.
Even though Victory 5 beat LGD in the last head-to-head, LGD should win on Sunday. They’re in the much better form while Victory 5 hast struggled big time.
eSports Betting Pick: LGD
- Team WE vs Royal Never Give Up
It should take a massive effort by Royal Never Give Up to beat Team WE on Sunday. Team WE has won 7-of-10. They lost 1:3 to JD Gaming in their last. Before the loss, though, they had beaten Bilibili, Victory 5, Topsports, Vici, Rogue, and JD.
Royal Never Give Up head into this having lost 3-of-4. Team WE looks like a solid play to win on June 2.
eSports Betting Pick: Team WE
