The Final League of Legends LCK and LPL February Games
The LCK 2019 Spring has brought about new stars, while former favorites found themselves struggling at the bottom of the standings. Things are more stable in the Chinese LPL, with the same top teams cementing their position at the top of the leaderboard. The most important games of the weekend are also available at major bookmakers, for punters and Facebook enthusiasts to bet on today.
Sandbox and SKT Fight for the Second Place in the LCK
Griffin are currently the team to beat in the South Korean League of Legends main division, but this team doesn’t play in the remaining days of February. Instead, it is Sandbox and SKT that are scheduled to play this week and both of them are favourites to win. Sandbox will have the more difficult match scheduled on February 28, when they take on Afreeca Freecs. Rivalry prices them at 3/5, which is exceptional value given the struggles of their opponents in recent weeks.
Sandbox are expected to have a much easier mission over the weekend, when they play against Jin Air, the only winless team in the LCK. Unfortunately for the underdogs, they are unlikely to pick up their first victory this week, as they are given odds of 8/1 in both matches. In the other games scheduled on Friday, they play against Damwon, who have recently defeated SKT in spite of starting with the second chance. Speaking of SKT1, they get odds of 3/20 at Betway against Gen.G on the first day of March.
Hanhwa and Freecs Hope for Weekend Redemption
Hanhwa Life have emerged as a streaky team this season, alternating victories and defeats, so they sit at the middle of the standings. The same can be said about Kingzone DragonX, so it comes as no surprise that the two teams are tied for the sixth place. Both have won six matches and lost four, so the winner of this series will get in the front. ArcaneBet regards Kingzone DragonX as slight favourites with odds of 3/4, but the tempting odds are the ones of 11/10 offered on Hanhwa Life.
Lopsided Matches in the Chinese LPL This Week
Four matches are scheduled in the last two days of February, two of them on the 26th and the other two on February 27. In the opening day, Topsports Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix are expected to steamroll past their opponents, as reflected by the odds of 3/10 offered by Pinnacle. The former play against SinoDragon and the latter take on OMG with the two underdogs being priced at 4/1. JD Gaming are also expected to win against Victory Five at odds of 2/5, while the most anticipated match is the one between Rogue Warriors and Snake eSports. This looks like the perfect coin flip with odds of 9/10, and the two teams share the place second to last, with two victories and five defeats.
