Welcome back to Friday’'s League of Legends preview for DraftKings where league action continues in Korea and China. 


Today’s feature contest is the LOL $200K Golden Chalice ($50,000 to 1st for a $11 entry) on DraftKings and a $25,000 Elder Dragon for $4 entry with $2,500 to 1st place.


Today is a 6 game slate that combines the LCK (South Korea League) and the LPL (China League) with 3 matches in each league. These matches are the best of 3 games.


Here is today’s bookies odds with action getting underway at 1700 AEDT and the current odds from Beteasy as of 1100 AEDT


Two big favourites in the LPL and two big favourites in the LCK. But with a sizable amount of upsets occuring in the both leagues it has been one of those weeks leading into the playoffs. Dominus Esports (3-7) are coming off a huge win against LNG Esports, whilst eStar (9-2) lost 1-2 against Vici Gaming which broke a 5 game winning streak. eStar are now slight favourites against a strong Royal Never Give Up (6-3) who have won 3 in a row and will look to knock off the current league leaders. In Korea, Gen.G and T1 do look easy wins but the final match between the struggling Afreeca outfit (6-7) losing 4 matches in a row up against Damwon (6-7) who have won their last two. 

If you are looking for Starting Lineups for the LPL you can follow @kenzi131 on Twitter who will post LPL lineups in advance and if available the 1st matchup for LCK.



With thanks to rotogrinders.com here is today’s overall slate breakdown with the teams overall performance for the Spring season. As with the Bookmaker’s odds above, the team stats clearly show 5 standout teams on today’s slate. LPL’s eStar, Royal Never Give Up, Invictus Gaming and Edward Gaming all have high Kill to Death Ratio but the slate leading team is LCK’s outfit Gen.G at 2.15 K:D ratio. 


I could of mentioned T1 above as well with a K:D ratio of 1.54 but due to the average kills per game at 11.9 (significant lower than other slate leading teams) and on some Vegas books the Kill over/under is set at low 19.5

Thanks to rotogrinders.com today’s MID selection has an interesting selection of participants. Despite only having a 2.94 KDA ratio, Rookie from IG is the highest projected MID position player on the slate. Cheaper than ES MID Cryin and team mate ADC Puff, Rookie ($8,200) has been a consistent fantasy scorer with 3 100+ performances in the past 5 games. A player that could go under the radar is MID Showmaker ($7,000) who has scored particularly well in his past two wins. 89 fantasy points against Hanwha and 114 points against APK.

Today's Targets


Feature Stack - Royal Never Give Up


ADC Betty $7,200

MID Xiahou $6,800

SUP Ming $5,000

TOP LangX $6,000


Up against heavyweights eStar, this match could either go a couple of ways. RNG could either roll over and let ES have their way or go toe-to-toe with ES and rack up the kill count. The bookies have this close and the kill line is a slate leading 28.5. We get the DraftKings discount on being the underdog and SUP Ming is averaging just on 80 DK fantasy points in the last three matches. Liking the upside here


Second Stack - Invictus Gaming


ADC Puff $8,400

MID Rookie $8,000

JDG Leyan $7,600

TOP TheShy $7,400


The safer stack of the slate but if you can make it work in your lineup construction then IG are going to rack up the points against the winless V5. As mentioned, MID Rookie is the highest projected play on the slate and his teammates should feast. 


Key Targets on the Slate


TOP Canna $7,000

TOP Aodi $6,800

JNG Clid $7,000
