PENTANET.GG vs AVANT OPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW
A spot in the playoffs is on the line as Pentanet.GG and Avant Gaming clash this Friday in the final competitive week of the League of Legends Oceanic Pro League (OPL) 2020 Summer Split.
Pentanet.GG enter Week 9 with a 6-9 record to sit fifth in the league standings, a win behind ORDER and one ahead of their next opponents. While Jarrod “Getback” Tucker and co. have struggled to find any real consistency, they have shown just enough to keep themselves in contention for a top-five finish.
Pentanet had quite a difficult schedule in Week 8, where they lost to two league frontrunners in Chiefs Esports Club and Dire Wolves. They were far from embarrassed, however, and might have beaten Wolves had they drafted more late-game options.
Avant, too, have left a lot to be desired with their performances this split, as an underwhelming 5-11 record leaves them in sixth place. That said, Avant kept their playoff dreams alive last week when they pocketed an upset win against Chiefs.
A strong teamfight-oriented draft and solid individual displays were the key factors in the win over Chiefs. The standout player was Avant’s rookie jungler, Thomas “LeeSA” Ma, who has endured an inconsistent season but pulled out the bug guns when it mattered.
That result has given Dragon “Dragku” Guo and his crew a huge morale boost heading into the final week of the split, where they will have to produce nothing less than a perfect 2-0 run to reach the playoffs.
PENTANET.GG vs AVANT OPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS
Pentanet.GG enter this bout as heavy favourites with esports betting sites, but we would not count out Avant just yet. While many will mark down their win over Chiefs as a fluke, the quality of that performance suggests there is more to come.
Avant’s chances this Friday may rest on LeeSA, who could be either a huge nuisance for his opponents or a total non-factor. The spotlight will also be on Jesse “Chazz” Mahoney. The Australian mid laner has the potential to become the main carry for the team, but his tendency to play control mages means he focuses more on keeping his team in the game instead of helping them win games.
There are a lot of question marks above Avant ahead of this bout, but the added pressure should inspire this team to new heights. They have already beaten Pentanet this season, so there is no reason they can’t do it again.
