It’s the last day of week nine and the first series brings us the battle between Kwangdong Freecs and Liiv SANDBOX. Kwangdong Freecs comes in to this series off of a 2-1 win against Hanwha Life Esports, adding another win to their record and keeping their playoff hopes alive. Whereas Liiv SANDBOX showed that they are no pushover by taking only the seventh map that T1 have lost all split but still recorded a loss, going down 2-1 in their series against the undefeated giants.

Kwangdong Freecs need to win this series to make sure that they stay ahead of KT Rolster, who have one series to play just like Kwangdong Freecs, meaning if both teams win, ‘The Freecs’ will finish in the top six and qualify for playoffs. In most of Kwangdong Freecs games, they rely on Park ‘Teddy’ Jin-Seong to provide a lot of damage and influence the game from the top lane. Whilst taking the last game 2-1 against Hanwha Life Esports, ‘Teddy’ compiled a huge 17.0 KDA over the three map series, leading all players throughout the series.

Liiv SANDBOX have had an up and down split, starting off with a 2-0 win against the now fourth placed DRX. However, after taking that series they have only achieved three more wins and had 13 losses. Coming into this series with Kwangdong Freecs, Liiv SANDBOX have lost their last six BO3s and only taken a total of two maps from those six BO3s. The one shining light for Liiv SANDBOX is that in their latest loss against T1, where they lost 2-1, they managed to take one map against the top ranked team.

Kwangdong Freecs need to win this series to make sure they qualify for playoffs. Expect Kwangdong Freecs to come out and be very strong in this match up, taking the series in the end. We believe that there is more value in the maps market than the win market. So we suggest taking the over 2.5 maps with online betting sites which sits at +110, we should be seeing this series go to three maps.

Over 2.5 Maps

The last series of the entire LCK Spring Split for 2022 is a top-end battle between the undefeated T1 and fourth placed DRX. T1 will finish on top of the standings for this split and they will look to keep their undefeated streak alive going into playoffs. However, DRX will be desperate to win this so they can stay even with DWG KIA and finish equal 3rd at the end of the split.

There is not enough superlatives to use when talking about T1 and the split they have had so far. They have been dominant all split long, dropping seven maps total over their 41 maps that they have played this split. Most of their best games have come against the top four teams, showing that there is still a big gap between themselves and the rest of the top teams in the LCK. Of course T1’s main man Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-Hyeok has been massive for the top team this split. He has a massive 85% win rate and a 4.6 KDA throughout this split for T1.

For DRX, they are coming off what many people have described a dismantling loss against DWG KIA. Losing 2-0 against the then fourth placed team puts DRX now in equal third with DWG KIA. If DRX want to win this series against T1 they will have to show a lot more fight and play a lot better as a team to take down this juggernaut of a team.

T1 sit in first undefeated at 17-0. DRX sit in equal third with DWG KIA at 11-6. There is a lot on the line for both of these teams, with T1 potentially becoming the first team ever to go undefeated through an entire split in LCK history. Whereas for DRX they will need to win to try and avoid taking on T1 early in playoffs. So we believe with so much on the line, this series is destined for three maps. BetOnline are giving us +125 for over 2.5 maps, in our opinion that is a steal and in this case it is our suggested bet.

Over 2.5 Maps
