AFREECA FREECS VS DRAGONX LCK SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
Afreeca Freecs and DragonX will meet this Saturday in what is dubbed as the match of the week in the 2020 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK). Both sides have yet to taste defeat this season, but the perfect streak will end for one of the two teams this weekend.
Afreeca Freecs got off to a flying start this season, winning all of their opening three fixtures. In Week 1 they bested Hanwha Life Esports and Griffin in very convincing fashion, to which they added a less assured 2-1 win against APK Prince on Wednesday.
The team as a whole operates exceptionally well and it is hard not to be impressed with the key elements of AF’s gameplay. The main carries of the team are ADC Jin “Mystic” Seong-jun and top laner Kim “Kiin” Gi, both of whom have starred so far. We must also give some praise to mid laner Song “Fly” Yong-jun, support Son “Jelly” Ho-gyeong and jungler Lee “Spirit” Da-yoon, who have all contributed to Afreeca Freecs’ 3-0 record.
At the pace Afreeca Freecs are playing now, they seem like one of the strongest teams in the league and possibly one of the frontrunners for the LoL World Championship title. That might seem like a big call so early in the season, but it’s safe to say that it will take a lot to defeat them.
A lot of expectations were put on DragonX ahead of this season, mostly due to their young and talented roster. Many expected DragonX to slowly improve and become one of the best. Instead, they bolted out of the gates with wins over KT Rolster, SANDBOX Gaming and Hanwha Life Esports to take a perfect record into Saturday’s clash.
While the whole squad works well and continues to improve week after week, the inexperience of DragonX’s players remains a big concern. Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon and Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu have played on the big stage, but Ryu “Keria” Min-seok, Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon and Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon still have a lot to learn, namely how to play under high-pressure situations.
The inexperience is more of a long-term concern that can become an issue in the playoffs or even at Worlds. As far as their current situation is concerned, however, DragonX are still one of the strongest teams in the LCK and with the help of their experienced head coach, Kim “cvMax” Dae-ho, this squad will remain to be a serious finals contender.
AFREECA FREECS VS DRAGONX LCK SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
This match will be decided in the jungle, where we will see Pysoik clash with either Spirit or Lee “Dread” Jin-hyeok in what will be a true test for the youngster. The reason why we believe junglers will play a pivotal role is because this bout will be all about momentum. The team that gets ahead in the early stages will most likely go on to win, meaning we have to side with the squad that has proven to be slightly more active in the first minutes of their games. That team is DragonX.
While they might lack the experience of Afreeca Freecs’ players, DragonX have been on a roll recently. With their fast-paced playstyle, they are hard to counter. However, they do not have a clear advantage over Afreeca Freecs, so we are most likely in for a three-map series.
The odds for over 2.5 maps are more appealing than backing DragonX. While we firmly believe the favourites should come out ahead, we can’t imagine them producing a clean sweep against Afreeca Freecs. Expect a 2-1 win for Dragon X.
