OH MY GOD vs INVICTUS GAMING LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW

Former world champions Invictus Gaming and high-flying underdogs Oh My God will clash this Tuesday on the second matchday in Week 5 of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL).

After a shaky display in the 2019 LPL Summer Split and a painful semi-final exodus at the 2019 LoL World Championship, Invictus Gaming have found their footing in 2020 by winning all but one of their eight fixtures so far this split.

Entering Week 5 of the LPL 2020 Spring Split with a 7-1 record, Invictus sit second in the league behind the young and talented eStar squad that handed Kang “TheShy” Seung-lok and co. their first and only loss of the season. Other than that, Invictus defeated FunPlus Phoenix, Dominus Esports, ViCi Gaming, Rogue Warriors, LGD Gaming, Top Esports and most recently Suning.

Invictus Gaming’s domestic dominance is down to the sheer individual quality of their players. That is not to say IG are a flawless team, as they can have their moments of inconsistency, but their player stats this season are world class.

With a 5-4 record, Oh My God sit seventh in the league standings, which makes them serious playoff contenders. While they might not be top-three material, OMG seem like they are capable of finishing the split at least among the top five.

OMG have defeated LNG Esports, Rogue Warriors, Bilibili Gaming, Dominus Esports and Victory 5 this season, while their losses have come against JD Gaming, Royal Never Give Up, FunPlus Phoenix and Top Esports.

It may be a bit too early to say Oh My God are serious contenders for the title, but they have started to show glimpses of how strong this Chinese esports organisation used to be. OMG were a dominant force in the early days of the LPL, winning the first-ever Spring Split in 2013 and finishing third-fourth at LoL Worlds in 2014.

OH MY GOD vs INVICTUS GAMING LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS

Although this is not a match of high importance in terms of the top eight, there is something riding on it for both sides. If Invictus Gaming pull away with a win here, they would silence the doubters and solidify themselves as one of the top LPL teams. A win for OMG, on the other hand, would help them prove they are a serious threat for not only playoffs but also the LPL title.

Esports bookmakers have Invictus priced as heavy favourites, but it’s hard to agree with the inflated odds offered on Oh My God. While they have not produced anything remarkable this split and their 0-2 loss to Top Esports on Sunday is not exactly promising, OMG are a team that tend to perform better when facing stronger opponents.

An upset win for OMG might be a bit far-fetched, as Invictus Gaming are in fine form. Having said that, OMG forced both Royal Never Give Up and FunPlus Phoenix into three-map series, so there is no reason to believe they can’t do the same to Invictus.
