Series Notes

SANDBOX GAMING

No, this isn’t a continuation of last night’s slate where there were four huge favorites, but SB would fit right at home with the dogs on yesterday’s slate. Since YamatoCannon fully joined the team as a coach, SB appears to be a rejuvenated team. The kicker is that his appearance aligned with an easier stretch of the schedule, and this is the first elite team SB will face with him at the helm. SB needs to play early game even or ahead in gold, as DWG is capable of overplaying, in order to have a shot here. OnFleek has a massive 78.2% kill participation (KP), and he needs to get going early for SB to be competitive.

DAMWON GAMING

Leading the LCK in kills per game at 16.8, DWG appears to be in a prime position to pick up a 2-0. DWG averages a gold lead at 15 minutes of nearly 3,000 gold, and they’re unafraid of stepping on the gas with an average game time under 30 minutes. LoL DFS-wise, DWG looks to be solid across the board, and I’m interested in seeing how ownership looks before taking a stand on them. Ghost is cheap on DraftKings but the most expensive player on FanDuel, so I can see him fitting into more lineups on DraftKings.

VICTORY FIVE

After destroying TES, V5 followed it up by losing to IG 1-2. It’s not a bad loss at all, and this should be the toughest team V5 has faced after a loss up to this point. I lean towards a V5 win here, but I think it could be a little rougher than LoL DFS players would like. Both teams average about 13 kills per contest, while both average fewer than 11.3 deaths per game. Mole has my favorite lane matchup for V5, and once again I like him more on DraftKings than on FanDuel from a pricing standpoint.

SUNING

Perhaps the quietest winning streak in the LPL belongs to SN with six in a row. Four of those went 2-1, and this very well could be another three game series. Solid is the best word I’d use for SN, however they’ve been a less enticing LoL DFS option this split. Huanfeng will be the first piece of SN I look at tonight, and hopefully he can put up an excellent score should SN win.

AFREECA FREECS

Bellowing in mediocrity, AF seems to lack a real identity this split. Maybe a beatdown of a team that dies nearly 16 times per game will inject this squad with some inspiration going forward. One of the issues that needs to be looked at for LoL DFS is that only Mystic has a KP over 70%. Kiin is the best player in the series, and we’ve seen SP not care about their top laner getting counterpicked, and if that happens Kiin should eat.

SEOLHAEONE PRINCE

Sitting in last place in kills and deaths per game, SP’s spring performance fully appears to just be based on the fact that most of it happened online. South Korea has crazy low ping, but it seems SP functions better at home. If you want to play some SP in the hope that AF plays poorly, that’s fine, and Flawless would be someone that needs to play well for them to have a chance.

ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP

We finally get to what should be the most interesting series of the night as RNG takes on LGD. Oddly enough this could play out similarly to the other LPL series of the night where both teams average 13 kills or  fewer, while also dying fewer than 11.5 times per game. RNG is still very talented despite their record, but some of their players are wildly priced on DraftKings. This might be a spot where I mostly like them on FanDuel, with Xiaohu still being the individual I trust most on RNG.

LGD GAMING

LGD is on a two-series win streak, and might be out of the little funk they were in during the middle of the split. Both teams are pretty solid early game, but I think LGD has a few more pieces to facilitate aggressive play in that area. A 2-1 result either way here wouldn’t surprise me, nonetheless I like LGD a tiny bit more to take the series. Peanut for better or worse seems firmly entrenched as the guy who really decides which way the pendulum will swing early.

Favorite Play

ADC – Mystic. Mystic is very good, and SP as a team isn’t very good. I want to see AF come out and lay the wood to SP, because AF can be very exciting to watch when they’re on. That scenario should lend itself for Mystic to score big in the DFS world.

MID – Showmaker. Now here’s someone who is very expensive everywhere, but he’s worth it to me. Regardless of if it’s one offs, DWG stacks, I will not be rejecting any Showmaker, and hopefully I can find ways to get over the field.

Favorite Contrarian Play

JNG – XLB. RNG should be more popular on FanDuel than DraftKings, as the prices for RNG work better. We all know that Peanut will pop off, or jump into a pool of sharks, and XLB is capable of outmaneuvering him.
