No-one has any idea when the professional sports leagues will be back in business and ready to play, which is why we are beginning to turn our attention to eSports. While many of you probably view the world of professional video gaming as a bit of a fringe sport, there is actually a huge global audience tuning in to the many great leagues that are out there. Let’s analyze some of the League of Legends Odds for LCK for April 8th 2020 Matches.
League Of Legends LCK April 8th Matches
For the purposes of this piece, we are going to talk about the League of Legends (LOL) matchups for the coming week. The LOL leagues are set up to be somewhat regional, in that we have teams in North America, Europe, and Korea, to name but a few. They are all tied together in that they compete in head to head matches playing League of Legends, which is a multiplayer online battle arena video game.
The league that we are focusing on here is the LCK, which is made up of 10 Korean teams. It’s always smart to pay attention to the format of the games, as some are single game battles, while others are the best of 3 or 5 games. We will make sure that you are aware of that with each game that we preview. The next round of games is set to go on Wednesday, April 8, with a 4 AM EST start time, so be sure to get those bets in early for the two games that we have on tap. Now, let’s get to the previews.
DAMWON Gaming (-526) Vs Griffin (+301)
The setup for these matchups is a best of 3, so let’s start by taking a look at DAMWON and where they stand in the league, as well as their recent form. The top 3 in the league have all pulled a way a little, but DAMWON are trying to close the gap, as they are now sitting in 4th with a season record of 8-7. They are coming off a 2-0 win over T1 on Sunday afternoon, which means that they are now on a run where they have won 4 in a row. Griffin are sitting at the bottom of the LCK league, but they are sure to be coming into this one on a bit of a high after a 2-1 win over APK Prince on Sunday. That broke a losing skid for Griffin, although they have been close in the 2 games prior to their most recent win, losing 2-1 in those matchups.
APK Prince Vs Gen.G
What we have here is what initially looks like a bit of a mismatch, with the top of the league Gen.G team going against an APK Prince squad that is struggling to find their feet in the LCK League. Gen.G are on top with a season record of 12-3, but they are sharing that with T1, who have the same record, while staying just ahead of DragonX at 11-4. This is a game that they should win, but the pressure of maintaining the top spot is always tough. APK Prince are down in 9th with a 5-10 record and are coming off a disappointing 2-1 loss to Griffin, the bottom of the league team, on Sunday. This should be an easy win for Gen.G.
