GRIFFIN VS SANDBOX GAMING LCK SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
Griffin and SANDBOX Gaming will meet on the Summoner’s Rift this Wednesday in Week 2 of the 2020 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Spring Split. Griffin will be eager to avenge their KeSPA Cup quarter-final defeat against SANDBOX back in December, while Kang “Laden” Byung-ho’s squad will look to continue climbing the ladder by pocketing their second win of the season.
Griffin had a tough start to the 2020 LCK season, losing to both Afreeca Freecs and Gen.G. They have shown glimpses of quality, however, and it is worth noting Choi “Sword” Sung-won and company played two of the strongest teams in the LCK in the opening week.
Griffin’s first-up defeat to Afreeca Freecs was not as one-sided as expected, yet there is no denying the winners deserved their spoils. Griffin then got stomped by the league favourites, Gen.G, who showed no mercy with their aggressive playstyle.
SANDBOX Gaming will look to bounce back from the bitter loss they suffered on Sunday, when they were reverse-swept by the new-look DragonX. While Laden’s squad played well, the little mistakes cost them the win.
Han “Leo” Gyeo-re, while a solid ADC, had a few moments of weakness in the opening week. He was caught out of position at a critical stage in the loss to DragonX, so he will want to make amends this week.
On a more positive note, SANDBOX thrashed APL Prince in their first game of the season. They won’t be the only team to do that, however, as APL are expected to finish in the lower reaches of the table.
GRIFFIN VS SANDBOX GAMING LCK SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
Looking at the betting odds, we believe esports bookmakers are not giving Griffin enough credit for what they have shown so far this season.
There is no going around the fact that Griffin are not the same team as last season, due to the Kanavi incident, but this team is capable of doing some damage. Griffin stood their ground against Afreeca Freecs, which suggests they can trouble the top teams in the LCK this season.
Park “Viper” Do-hyeon has been performing well and is averaging exceptional numbers, despite the fact Griffin played two of the strongest Korean teams in the opening week of the LCK Spring Split. On the other side, Leo looked very shaky and made some crucial errors that cost SANDBOX the win.
In the mid lane, Son “Ucal” Woo-hyeon will meet with Kim “Dove” Jae-yeon, which should be a tight contest. Sword is yet to show his true strength in the top lane, but his 2019 LCK Summer Split performances tell us he is not to be underestimated.
Griffin have the needed pieces to go toe-to-toe with the best teams Korea has to offer, but those pieces have yet to fall into place. Nonetheless, they have shown enough so far for us to believe they can pinch a map off SANDBOX.
