T1 and JD Gaming entered the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational as the leading favourites to win the tournament. They breezed through the first two rounds of the bracket stage and will now clash for a ticket to the big finals.
T1 kicked off their MSI 2023 campaign with a dominant win against MAD Lions (3-0), to which they added a 3-2 victory against Gen.G (3-2), avenging their loss from the LoL Champions Korea (LCK) 2023 Spring finals. On the other side, JD Gaming crushed Golden Guardians (3-0) in the first round of the playoffs and then routinely disposed of Bilibili Gaming (3-0) for the third time this season.
Both teams looked incredible so far this tournament, which makes it tough to set them apart. But based on what we’ve seen, T1 shouldn’t be priced as favourites. Although still an elite-tier team, there’s no reason to believe that T1 are stronger than JD Gaming.
It’s tough to compare teams from two regions as there is no accurate way to measure the league’s strength, but JD Gaming have been playing a better League than T1 in 2023 and have looked much cleaner than the Koreans this tournament. Although T1 had a tougher road to the semifinals, the eye test proves JD Gaming should be better in this matchup mainly due to their strong early game.
At even odds or better, JD Gaming are an excellent choice.
