LIIV SANDBOX vs AFREECA FREECS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Event: League of Legends LCL
LOL odds: SANDBOX -103.09 at BetOnline | AF -128.21 at BetOnline
When: January 20, 2021 at 17:00 KST
Watch Live: Twitch, Lolesports

Afreeca Freecs enter this match off a 2-0 sweep of Fredit BRION in what was a surprisingly close and a sloppy affair.

Regardless, AF proved that they can come out of the chaos with gigantic gold leads, which speaks a lot about their quality as a team that will do fine against bottom of the table squads, but will likely struggle against the top dogs.

Liiv SANDBOX were not very successful last week, when they lost to Nongshim RedForce (1-2) and KT Rolster (0-2). If there is something we can take from SANDBOX’s games is that they have a lot of promise, but they’re very messy in execution, which suggests they should do fine later in the season, but for now they’re a bit hit-or-miss.

Despite AF’s shaky display against the league’s worst team, they are still the better side here. We expected them to be priced closer to $1.60 (with the top esports betting sites), which makes this a no-brainer pick for us.

DRX vs NONGSHIN RED FORCE LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

Event: League of Legends LCL
LOL odds: DRX +167 at BetOnline | RedForce -222.22 at BetOnline
When: January 20, 2021 at 20:00 KST
Watch Live: Twitch, Lolesports

Nongshin RedForce lost their most recent league fixture against DWG KIA which was expected, however we have to note that RedForce’s mid laner Park “Bay” Jun-byeong continues to disappoint in his debut as a pro. Based on his performance so far, it seems like he won’t be able to keep up with other mid laners in the league including DRX’s Song “SOLKA” Su-hyeong.

DRX are arguably one of the weakest teams in this League of Legends league, but they perform much better than expected. DRX’s biggest problem is their inability to gain leads on their own, however, they are fairly efficient in closing out games when given the opportunity.

Taking advantage of RedForce’s weaknesses (mid) will be crucial for DRX’s success and we are confident jungler Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon is aware of that. This seems more like an underdog or nothing type of match and at these odds and so early into the season, it’s hard not to take shot on DRX.
