DraftKings LoL DFS Picks League of Legends esports LPL LCK series for today expert projections ownership rankings predictions

With the major regions all finished with playoffs, and only some with regionals yet to play, EU Masters slides on in to continue the LoL DFS. Cross league play can be difficult to predict, but each game on this slate is getting a look at below.

LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings EU Masters Quick Hits

RGO vs. MSFP

Opening the EU Masters Summer is an intriguing matchup with two veterans of the circuit. RGO underperformed in the playoffs after topping the regular season, but they advanced out of a difficult play-in group to make it to the main event. Perhaps the most disrespectfully priced team for this LoL DFS slate, RGO offers solid talent at bargain prices, as RGO lead the Ultraliga in kills per game, and it will be interesting to see how popular they are after underperforming last EU Masters. With premier in their name, MSFP carries an incredible amount of talent that should see them capable of challenging any team in the tournament. Their opener can pose some problems, but if they maintain their playoff performance, which saw them run the gauntlet as the third seed, winning three straight best-of-fives, MSFP can come out on top. Pricing is a bit tricky here though, but not including Shlatan when LoL DFS mass entering, could prove folly.

ANO vs. UCAM

To put it bluntly, ANO is one of the wildest wild cards in this tournament. After a decent EU Masters debut, which saw an average of 34.3 combined kills in their six games, they promptly went back to the GLL, where their games had 37.6 combined kills per game, with that number reaching 43.2 in the playoffs. ANO is far from a safe bet to win games, but if their games are boring, it might be the first time, making everyone on the roster, particularly Dom1nant viable. UCAM on the flipside is not a massively bloody team, averaging 13.8 kills and 13.3 deaths per game in their regular LVP season, which saw them enter the playoffs as the fifth seed. Playoffs saw them overachieve, reaching the finals, and securing an EU Masters spot. Usually UCAM will not be a wildly attractive option, especially in a tricky group, but today players like Rafitta, and his 30%+ damage share could be useful in what could be a LoL DFS bloodbath.

FNCR vs. BIG

Featuring two of the bigger organizations in the tournament, FNCR and BIG. FNCR does not carry as much of a punch in terms of well-known names this split, but they were easily the best team in their NLC group, and only dropped two close series to Tricked Esports in the playoffs, forcing them to the play-in stages, which they handled easily going 5-1. Averaging 17.9 kills and 2.4 assists in the regular season, if they can get a win here, Pride becomes an interesting top lane option. BIG is one of the many teams attending EU Masters after having done so in spring, and after a third-place regular season finish, they had few issues breezing through a difficult playoff bracket to take first in the PRM. One thing BIG did in both regular season, and playoffs, was bring the action, also averaging 17.4 kills, with a pristine 2.4 assist per kill total. Both teams are solid, which might temper action, but both teams brought it during summer, and Keduii stands out as one of the better ADC options on the slate.

Z10 vs. IHG

Two of the more unknown teams of the tournament duke it out in their opening game. Z10 comes from the lesser developed league, in the EBL, but they put up almost 19 kills per game in the regular season and come off a 3-2 victory in playoff finals. Despite their meager 2.1 assist per kill total, Ryuzaki sports a team best 69.9% kill participation (KP), making him one of the more attractive pieces in the unknown Z10 pie. IHG comes with history in the EU Masters, having played to a 2-4 record in spring, but this is a completely different roster. The bad news is that they are one of the many teams with a lower kill per game total than one would like, but this is a winnable game, and Z10 was prone to high death totals in losses this split, making Escik someone to keep an eye out for here.

MCK vs. VGIA

MCK were one of the surprises of EU Masters spring, nearly qualifying to the knockout stage. Opening their journey sees them taking on a team with a solid amount of history in VGIA. It is difficult to see MCK being particularly enticing on a LoL DFS front, as even though they were largely dominant in their region, they only averaged 12.9 kills per contest, but if they go massively overlooked, then they might be worth some fliers. VGIA comes in with a more tested roster, featuring a bot lane combo with LEC experience. While odds have this as a close contest, VGIA have the tools to edge this one out, although they too might not be high flying LoL DFS plays, with an average kill count under 13 per game as well.

MOUZ vs. KC

Closing out EU Masters day one is MOUZ, and winners of EU Masters spring, KC. KC is without Adam, but Cabochard is more than capable as a replacement. One thing to note is that KC did not win their regions playoffs, but they still averaged almost 19 kills per game in the regular season, and at their price point, it is tricky to not see them being popular. MOUZ may end up being sneakier than expected, as even though they went through play-ins, they do have a solid roster, and in a win, Pridestalker is someone that could make for a good LoL DFS option.

Favorite Pick

ANO/UCAM– Easily the most intriguing series on the slate, both teams are worthy of rostering, although if ownership (LINK) gets a bit out of hand, finding pivots on a massive slate is incredibly viable.

Favorite Contrarian Pick

MID-Escik. The mid laner for IHG gets a winnable matchup, and if IHG are to have success this tournament, Escik is a name to keep an eye on for LoL DFS.
