DraftKings LoL DFS Picks LPL strategy advice preview for today Tuesday June 8 2021 based on expert projections ownership rankings values contrarian GPP plays cash games free

On only the second day of the LPL summer split, this seems to be a pretty straightforward LoL DFS slate with two solid favorites. Maybe the LPL will surprise like it sometimes does, and I’ll be breaking down all the teams on this slate while putting up some of my favorite LoL DFS picks on DraftKings.

LoL DFS Picks & DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown

OH MY GOD

While it’s unlikely to change their fate this split, OMG did make some proactive, potentially interesting changes in the off-season, with Creme being the most intriguing. OMG draws a rather favorable first game, as RA is very capable of looking bad, and if the new pieces slot in well, taking a gam or being competitive throughout is very possible.

RARE ATOM

Even though RA is clearly the correct side of this series on paper, they’re not a team without flaws, and nothing seems to have changed in the off-season. FoFo is still a stud who demands attention every time he steps on the rift, while on the flip side iBoy often feels like someone the team needs to keep in check rather than enabling. As the better team, RA is easily the safest LoL DFS option tonight, but it’s not a guarantee they win. FoFo likely tops the list of LoL DFS picks tonight, in a series RA needs to go 2-0 in to start their season.

EDWARD GAMING

At first glance it may seem that this is an easy stomp spot for EDG, but BLG is a legitimately solid team. Seeing EDG drop a game here wouldn’t be too surprising to me. With a roster largely unchanged in terms of members, Jiejie is someone who might have a big impact tonight. When all is said and done, Viper is the most talented player on this slate, and he’s the best LoL DFS option from EDG tonight.

BILIBILI GAMING

It’s really wild to see BLG getting so disrespected on the betting lines since they upgraded in the offseason with Weiwei and ppgod joining. This doesn’t mean that they’ll come out and stomp EDG, which is an incredibly difficult first match, but

they’re a strong long term buy, capable of causing problems to some of the top teams. Biubiu is an intriguing option tonight, as even though he has the talent disadvantage against Flandre, Flandre was asleep at the wheel the latter part of spring split, and maybe that carries over here.

Favorite Play

MID – FoFo. Both series are deceptively closer than the lines may appear, but FoFo is by far the class of the first series, and even if RA might be a long term sell for me, tonight should be a 2-0.

Favorite Contrarian Play

ADC – Aiming. With ppgod by his side, Aiming might be a little more interesting as a LoL DFS option, even if he ends up in a more supportive role himself. Picking against Viper will not be popular, making Aiming semi attractive.

I've been following and playing League of Legends for a decade now. Few things get my blood pumping more than a good ol' midnight LPL DFS sweat. I follow each of the four major regions of LoL in the LCK,LCS,LEC and LPL and each one has its own unique flair. Hopefully we can all learn a little bit about LoL DFS and best of luck in your contests! If you want additional fun stuff feel free to follow me @pickemgenius on twitter.
