JD GAMING vs BILIBILI GAMING LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
Wrapping up the third day of Week 3 at the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Spring Split is a clash between JD Gaming and Bilibili, who have a tendency to produce exciting fixtures when they meet on the Summoner’s Rift.
Bilibili Gaming got off to a strong start in their 2020 campaign with a fifth-eighth finish at Demacia Cup 2019, to which they added a perfect run through Week 1 of the LPL with wins over ViCi Gaming and Royal Never Give Up.
The two-month break that followed killed Bilibili’s momentum, as they dropped both games in Week 2 against LNG Esports and Suning. That poor run extended into game one of Week 3, when Bilibili lost to Oh My God (1-2).
Bilibili started strong against OMG and won the first map of the series by a hefty margin, but they dropped the ball in a big way in maps two (2-13) and three (11-21). Consistency is a problem for Bilibili and until they find some stability, it’s hard to expect anything great from them.
A perfect 2-0 result in Week 1, followed by a solid performance in their 1-2 loss to FunPlus Phoenix, a clean sweep against Victory 5 and a commanding 2-1 win over ViCi Gaming on Monday adds up to an impressive start from JD Gaming.
Not many people expected much from JD this season given they finished the 2019 LPL Summer Split in 10th place and lost their star ADC, Gu “imp” Seung-bin, to retirement. They entered the 2020 season with all guns blazing, however, and made a statement when they collected the bronze medal at the Demacia Cup.
Lee “LoKeN” Dong-wook, who arrived at JD Gaming as a replacement for imp, did not need long to gel with the team and has produced a few impressive showings so far, one of which was his pentakill against FunPlus Phoenix earlier this month. He boasts some of the best numbers among all ADC mains in the league, including a 20.0 KDA, 10.02 CSPM, 71.4% KPAR and 36.4% KS.
Seo “Kanavi” Jin-hyeok is another member of JD Gaming who deserves some praise, as he is one of the best junglers in the LPL right now. Out of all junglers, Kanavi is leading in all but one statistic, including KDA (6.62), CSPM (6.16), KPAR (78.1%) and GS (20.5%), while he is averaging 27.2% KS – 0.4% less than Rogue Warriors star Wang “WeiYan” Xiang.
JD GAMING vs BILIBILI GAMING LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
It’s hard to see this match as anything less than a one-sided bout where JD Gaming should come out ahead, and the betting odds at esports bookmakers reflect that.
JD Gaming looked strong since the LPL returned to action. While Bilibili are capable of much more than they have shown recently, it’s hard to find a solid reason to side with the underdogs here. Perhaps the absence of Zhang “Zoom” Xing-Ran could give Bilibili an edge, but they have never played through the top lane and they won’t suddenly change that this week.
Chu “FoFo” Chun-Lan will be the man to watch this game, as he will make or break Bilibili’s chances of upsetting JD Gaming. FoFo looked very iffy on Monday, where the only game his team won was when he played as a support mid laner. That either means he does not trust himself to carry his team, or his team doesn’t trust him to pick up a carry champion.
Either way, FoFo will struggle against Zeng “Yago” Qi. That makes Bilibili’s chances of winning very slim, which is why we will side with JD Gaming to pocket a clean sweep.
