AFREECA FREECS VS T1 LCK SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
Afreeca Freecs and T1 are set to meet on the Summoner’s Rift this Friday in Week 5 of the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) 2020 Spring Split. The bout will mark the halfway point of the split and will also be the final match these two sides will play before the LCK goes on an indefinite hiatus due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.
After a rough start of the season, T1 have finally found their footing and reclaimed their throne. Although a top finish by the end of the split is far from guaranteed for Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok and his squad, T1 have already established themselves as the alpha dogs with their triumphs over Gen.G (2-0), DragonX (2-1) and DAMWON Gaming (2-1).
With ADC Park “Teddy” Jin-seong in great shape and Kim “Canna” Chang-dong finally settling into the team as a starter, T1 as a whole look nearly unstoppable. Now the only question is whether T1 can keep up the tempo in the domestic league and strive for glory on the international stage as well.
After their title-winning run at KeSPA Cup 2019, Afreeca Freecs entered the new LCK season with high expectations on their shoulder. Although it would be fair to assume Lee “Spirit” Da-yoon and co. will make it to the playoffs, they have started falling behind the rest of the top teams.
Afreeca Freecs enter their ninth fixture of the LCK Spring Split with a 5-3 record, which sits them at fourth in the league standings. They defeated Griffin, Hanwha Life, APK Prince, SANDBOX GAMING and DAMWON Gaming, but they failed to see the same success against the likes of Gen.G, DragonX and KT Rolster.
Not everything is lost for Afreeca Freecs, however, as a win against T1 this Friday would help re-establish them as one of the top teams in the LCK. Much will depend on ADC Jin “Mystic” Seong-jun and top laner Kim “Kiin” Gi-in, neither of whom have played to their full potential in recent fixtures.
AFREECA FREECS VS T1 LCK SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
T1 head into this bout priced as heavy favourites by esports bookmakers. The question here is not so much whether T1 will win, but rather if they will manage a clean sweep.
The problem with Afreeca Freecs is simply a lack of form, which was on full display in their humiliating defeat against KT Rolster in Week 3. Although they managed to bounce back with a win against DAMWON in Week 4, Afreeca Freecs have left a lot to be desired.
On a more positive note, Afreeca Freecs have yet to suffer a clean sweep this season. What exactly is keeping this team from switching into a higher gear is anyone’s guess, but they are not as bad as some pundits would have us believe.
T1 should claim the spoils here, but we like the generous +112 odds on the contest to go over 2.5 maps. While Afreeca Freecs have had an up and down season to date, they should keep T1 on their toes and win a map. A 2-1 victory for T1 looks the most likely outcome.
