DraftKings LoL DFS Picks League of Legends esports LPL LCK series for today Friday June 25 2021 expert projections ownership rankings predictions

The ESports DFS playoffs are almost over, but the LoL DFS continues, and tonight features the final four teams in the LPL. Each team is capable of winning, below is a comprehensive breakdown of each matchup with the best DraftKings LoL DFS picks based on Awesemo’s expert projections.

LPL Series

LNG Esports (LNG) vs. Edward Gaming (EDG)

FunPlus Phoenix (FPX) vs. Team WE (WE)

LoL Esports DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL Slate Breakdown

LNG

With two teams coming from round one still in the playoffs, LNG is the more surprising one, having run the gauntlet of SN, TES, and RNG in their first three rounds. Unfortunately, their upper bracket run was ended by FPX, who beat them 3-0, although LNG was in control of games two and three. Fortunately for LoL DFS fans, the last regular season series for LNG was against EDG, which was a tightly contested series, which LNG lost 1-2, and both teams had seeding to play for. Winning tonight will be difficult, but if they are successful, Tarzan will be a key cog.

EDWARD GAMING

After finishing in second place in the regular season, EDG looked a bit rusty, having not played for a while, throwing a perfectly winnable series against WE. EDG appears to be the stronger side in this match, even after a tight contest in the last week of the regular season. For LoL DFS purposes, there is not much to take from the loss to WE, so looking at individual lane matchups could be key again. Scout stands out in this regard, as not only was he the most involved player in the WE series, but he also sported a 71.1% kill participation (KP) for the regular season.

FUNPLUS PHOENIX

FPX is on another level currently in the LPL, as many other teams would have found themselves down 1-2 to LNG after game three, instead of getting a sweep. Of course, coming back from a precarious position in games two and three to LNG could pose problems against WE, but WE also has found themselves on the positive side of circumstance in their last two series. Doinb is the clear cream of the crop in this series, and the LPL Summer Split MVP carries strong form into this playoff series.

WE

WE is one of the biggest surprises of this playoffs, and while they are worthy of their spot here, it has come off the back of back-to-back five-game series against RA and EDG. Beating EDG is extremely commendable, although they still have issues lingering, and will need to tidy them up in this series against FPX, in the battle to make the summer split finals. Beishang needs to come up big in this series to increase their chances at pulling off the upset, and if successful, could end up being a sneaky LoL DFS play this slate.

Favorite Pick

Mid – Doinb. FPX appears to be the strongest LPL team currently, and WE has needed help from their opponents in their prior two series, which seems unlikely to come from FPX. Doinb is on fire this split, as well as playoffs, and he should be quite comfortable with his matchup tonight.

Favorite Contrarian Pick

TOP – Ale. While he has had fewer down games while on EDG, Flandre is a top laner that has historically had just terrible games. The flipside is that he has also had massively impressive games, but if LNG decides to not stick Ale on Renekton duty again tonight, as well as giving him some resources, Ale could be a bit of an overlooked LoL DFS play tonight.

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.
