OKSAVINGS BANK BRION vs DPLUS KIA LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Dplus KIA were on the come-up over the last two weeks, but their streak came to a halt on Wednesday when Heo “ShowMaker” Su and his crew got swept (0-2) by KT Rolster. Dplus KIA were the weaker team on the day, but their loss can mainly be attributed to poor teamfight choices and a few too many questionable decisions in the mid-late game.
But despite Dplus KIA’s disappointing loss against the current no.2 in the LCK 2023 Summer, they should do more than fine against OKSavingsBank BRION. Dplus KIA, despite their weaknesses, are still an elite team. They are figuring some things out and need to work on their cohesion, but individually Dplus KIA are very strong.
OKSavingsBank BRION have won three games this split (3-9), and they took a map from Hanwha Life Esports (1-2) on Saturday. But against better opponents, OKSavingsBank BRION looked toothless and unable to make anything happen.
OKSavingsBank BRION’s main win condition is for the opponents to mess up, but it’ll take a lot more in this match. Dplus KIA have a much better early game, so even if they end up making the same mistakes as they did against KT, it’s hard to imagine OKSavingsBank BRION taking advantage of the situation.

HANWHA LIFE ESPORTS vs T1 BETTING & MATCH DETAILS
|HLE -138.89 at BetOnline | T1 +107 at BetOnline
|July 21, 2023 | 19:30 KST
Hanwha Life Esports are 7-5, tied with T1, who have won just one of their last four games without Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok. But even without the star mid-laner, T1 shouldn’t be priced as +107 underdogs against Hanwha Life Esports.
T1 haven’t looked too good in their last four outings, but they’re slowly adapting to life without Faker, and we can’t just ignore that this is still a very stacked roster. Hanwha Life Esports aren’t that bad individually either, but they have another problem – lack of versatility.
Hanwha Life Esports have done well this split, but they’ve only beaten weaker teams that HLE have crushed simply by relying on their individual talent. This won’t work against T1.
The market is low on T1, and rightly so, but this is still a much better team than Hanwha Life Esports. Take T1 at the outsiders odds.
