2020 League of Legends Fantasy Tips: Tuesday 14th April
Welcome back to Tuesday's League of Legends preview for DraftKings where league action continues in China.
Today’s feature contest is the LOL $200K Titan’s Fury ($50,000 to 1st) on DraftKings and a $25,000 Elder Dragon for $4 entry with $2,500 to 1st place.
Today is only a 3 game slate with the LPL (China League) the only league in action. The LCK (Korean League) have their matches from Wednesday through to Sunday.
Here is today’s schedule that gets underway at 1700 AEDT (note the adjusted contest time) and the current odds from Beteasy as of 1200 AEDT
It is a pivotal day in the league today for all teams (apart from JD Gaming) that are all outside of the final 8 but still can make a run in this final week.
- Rogue Warriors (10th 6-7)
- Vici Gaming (11th 6-8)
- LGD Gaming (12th 5-7)
- Suning (13th 5-9)
- Bilibili Gaming (14th 5-9)
You can just about put a line through Suning (lost two matches in a row) and Bilibili who needed to defeat IG last Sunday to keep pace with the top 8. LGD have a couple of matches to make up and must win against Bilibili to gain some momentum. Rogue Warriors are up against a strong JDG outfit who are on the best winning streak in the league of 4 wins (IG, ES, LNG, SUN). RW are the biggest dog of the day but could do some damage. RW have actually won 3 of their past 5 appearances as underdogs.
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.
Unfortunately I do not have the data from Rotogrinders.com today but I can paint a picture with some historical data.
Stats for today’s slate
- Best Team KD Ratio - JDG 1.4
- Best Kills per Game overall season - LGD/RW 14.4 kills per game
- Least Deaths per Game - JDG 9.6 deaths per game
- Leading Kills per game in last 5 matches - RW JNG Haro (5.85 Kills per game)

Featured Team - JD Gaming
JDG are the biggest favourite on the slate and have been elite since TOP Zoom has entered the team winning 3 straight games. JDG has the edge in Towers per game (6.9 to 5.0) and the K:D ratio of 1.4 is the highest on the slate. With only three games on the slate, this will be the chalk team. Must be considered for cash and look to pivot off GPP’s. In game 3-3 stacks with Rogue Warriors can be considered if RW wants to take up the battle with high kill rates. But I rather look to pair JDG with either of the four remaining teams. ADC Loken ($7,800), TOP Zoom ($6,600) and SUP LvMao ($5,600) are the standouts here.
Feature Team - Bilibili Gaming
I like the small underdog with Bilibili and the “bloody” game script that could break out here. Bilibili and LGD are evenly matched on the stats sheet but with some edges to LGD in Kills per game (14.4 to 11.1) and deaths per game (12.9 to 14.7). However the spread has been set at only 2 Kills and remarkably Bilibili are 6-0 ATS as underdogs this season. I’ll take the discount on the Bilibili players and achieve some good stacks with JDG. MID FoFo ($7,000) has an impressive last 5 matches KDA of 5.8 and has achieved the lowest death rate in the position.
Key Targets on the Slate
TOP Cube $6,800
JNG Aix $6,600
MID Forge $7,400
MID Wuming $6,600
ADC Zwuji $7,000
ADC iBoy $7,600
SUP Hang $5,200
TEAM JDG $5,600
TEAM Bilibili $4,800
