ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP vs SUNING LPL SUMMER BETTING PREVIEW

Royal Never Give Up will look to snap Suning’s five-game winning streak this Thursday when they meet during the seventh week of League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Summer.

Even though Victory Five hold the unofficial title of most improved team in the league, Suning have turned many heads with their improvement this split. After finishing LPL Spring in 11th place with a 7-9 record, they have already matched that number of wins only 10 games into the second split of the season.

Suning enter this match with a 7-3 record and an equally impressive 15-10 map differential, which sets them up for not only a playoffs ticket but possibly even a quarter-final seeding. With matches against Victory Five, Top Esports, Oh My God, ViCi Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix in the remaining four weeks, Thursday’s bout is crucial for Xiang “Angel” Tao and co.

Overall, Suning have been performing well above expectations. Even though their +428 gold differential and +19.5 CS differential at 15 minutes are not exactly spectacular, it is always a good sign when you positive numbers in the early game in such a strong league.

Additionally, Suning don’t seem to have any obvious weaknesses. All five of their players are performing well with an average KDA of 3.94 between them. Even though top laner Chen “Bin” Ze-Bin has only a 2.8 KDA average, his deep pool of nine champions more than compensates for his relative lack of kills.

Standing on the other side of the rift will be Royal Never Give Up, who are 5-4 this split. They have defeated Oh My God (2-0), ViCi Gaming (2-0), JD Gaming (2-1), eStar (2-1) and EDward Gaming (2-0) but lost to LNG Esports (0-2), Victory Five (0-2), Team WE (1-2) and FunPlus Phoenix (1-2).

That record is not too inspiring, especially when compared to their next opponents’ tally. However, with the exception of their fluke loss to LNG in Week 2, RNG’s defeats have come against some of the strongest teams in the league.

Like Suning, RNG hold respectable gold (+256) and CS (+14.1) differentials at 15 minutes. Another thing the two teams have in common is their lack of obvious weaknesses besides the top lane, where Tian “New” Zhi-Peng holds a 2.9 KDA but, like Bin for Suning, boasts a deep champion pool.

The biggest surprise at RNG is ADC Chen “GALA” Wei, who joined the team last month. In his four fixtures since, GALA has averaged an impressive 6.2 KDA, 81.1% KPAR and an outstanding 32.8% damage share with only 25.3% gold share.

Mid laner Li “Xiaohu” Yuan-Hao also deserves some praise as one of the most consistent players on the team. Throughout 18 games, the 22-year-old Chinese LoL pro is averaging a 4.7 KDA, 70.5 KPAR and 26.4% damage share.

ROYAL NEVER GIVE UP vs SUNING LPL SUMMER BETTING PREDICTIONS

Suning have shown more throughout this split, but we can’t agree with the surprisingly high odds on Royal Never Give Up. Even though RNG have looked a bit iffy at times, there is not a lot to separate these teams.

Both sides have solid vision and objective control, and also show a similar level of aggression. Suning might be more efficient in farming, but the difference is marginal and should not be taken as the main factor in this match.

Royal Never Give Up bring good form into this clash. They crushed EDward Gaming last weekend and before that put up a solid fight against FunPlus Phoenix, winning the first map with a +12.8k gold lead, +9 kill differential and +8 tower differential.

We have high expectations for RNG, who should at least steal one map from the high-flying Suning. Given the marginal difference between the outright price on the underdogs and the odds for the map line, the over 2.5 is the way to go.
