ORIGEN VS G2 ESPORTS LEC SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
Origen and G2 Esports both enjoyed perfect 2-0 runs in Week 6 of the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) 2020 Spring Split and will look to keep their streak alive this Friday in their second clash of the season.
Origen have enjoyed quite an impressive run since the start of the season and now look like serious title contenders. Although they have had a couple of mishaps, their 9-3 record ahead of Week 7 is not to be undervalued.
Origen’s losses came against G2, Misfits and Fnatic, but they have had a fairly easy time against the weaker teams. Last week they dismantled Schalke 04 and followed up with a convincing win against Rogue, where Barney “Alphari” Morris and co. started a slow but were very much in control for most of the game.
Overall, the roster looks solid with all five members playing to a high level. Andrei “Xerxe” Dragomir looked exceptionally good in Origen’s win over Rogue, but it is Mitchell “Destiny” Shaw who deserves all the praise he can get for what he has shown so far.
Destiny was one of the biggest question marks coming into this split for Origen. As the first-ever Oceanic Professional League (OPL) player to arrive in the LEC, he was dropped into a team with four star players and asked to deliver from the get-go.
The 22-year-old Australian esports pro has thrived under the spotlight and is now regarded as one of the top supports in the league. Destiny’s aggressive playstyle and great leadership has proven to be pivotal to Origen’s success this split and the team will look to him when they face the undisputed best team in Europe this Friday.
Following their defeat against MAD Lions in the final match of Week 5, G2 Esports went back to winning ways with big results over SK Gaming and Team Vitality. They will now look to build on that momentum as they approach one of the toughest competitive weeks of their season.
G2 hold a 9-3 record after six weeks of play, which sits them in a three-way tie at the top of the league with Origen and Fnatic. G2 will play both of those teams this week, meaning they could emerge as the outright leaders or drop out of the top three altogether.
G2 have failed to impress with their performances since mid-February, losing to Misfits, Schalke 04 and MAD Lions. Although they managed to stomp both SK Gaming and Vitality last week, it’s not possible to praise Luka “Perkz” Perković and his squad too much for beating up two of the weakest teams in the league.
ORIGEN VS G2 ESPORTS LEC SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
Esports bookmakers believe this will be a one-sided bout, but it seems like Origen are slightly underestimated.
In terms of individual quality, there is no denying G2 have the advantage. They boast five of the best LoL esports pros in Europe and they work very well together.
That said, Origen are no pushovers. Their lineup has looked more consistent than G2’s over the last two weeks, especially the in-form trio of Elias “Upset” Lipp, Alphari and Destiny.
An upset win for Origen is not impossible, but betting against G2 in any LEC match, especially one of such importance, is something we would like to avoid. Instead, it’s the total kills line that is much more appealing, as it’s hard to expect either side will dominate their opponents.
BetOnline is offering generous +108 odds on the contest to end with at least 29 kills on the board. In our books, that’s a better bet than backing an outright result.
