TEAM WE vs TOP ESPORTS LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW

Team WE and Top Esports are set to meet on the Summoner’s Rift this Wednesday during Week 6 of League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Spring Split.

Top Esports are a team on everyone’s mind due to their recent acquisition of the ex-Invictus Gaming star ADC Yu “JackeyLove” Wen-Bo, who joined the squad last Friday. TES were already in good shape, so this is a massive acquisition for the Chinese team.

After finishing third in last season’s LPL Summer Split and second at the LPL 2019 Regional Finals, Top Esports opted to sign jungler Hung “Karsa” Hao-Hsuan and Ying “Photic” Qi-Shen as replacements for Xiong “Xx” Yu-Long and Lee “LokeN” Dong-wook. Both have proved to be very solid additions.

Top Esports launched the 2020 LPL season with a perfect 2-0 week but came back to the pack with 0-2 and 1-1 returns in the following two rounds. They got on a roll from Week 4, however, producing a streak of four consecutive wins against Dominus Esports, JD Gaming, Oh My God and most recently Suning. Although not particularly strong opponents, Top Esports deserve all the praise they can get for their performances.

Due to their strong showings throughout the season, a playoffs berth was on the horizon for Top Esports even before the acquisition of JackeyLove. Now the question is not so much whether they make it to the top eight, but rather how far up they will climb.

Team WE will enter Week 6 of the LPL Spring Split with a 5-5 record to their name, which ties them with Oh My God in eighth spot. Unlike Top Esports, who have been surging in recent weeks, Team WE were consistently mediocre up until the last couple of rounds, when Jiang “beishang” Zhi-Peng and co. secured two solid wins over Rogue Warriors and Suning, only to lose two in a row against Bilibili Gaming and LGD Esports.

Despite their up and down season, Team WE are still in the playoffs race. But considering they recently lost to two of the weakest teams in the league, the outlook is not promising.

TEAM WE vs TOP ESPORTS LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS

It is still unknown if JackeyLove will play this Wednesday, but Top Esports are the team to beat regardless. Esports bookmakers have them at shorts odds for the win and around evens to cover a -1.5 map line, which is a vey tempting option.

Top Esports have already produced several clean sweeps against weaker opponents, as they did in three out of their last four fixtures. Although we would normally not underestimate Team WE, it’s hard to trust them too much after their losses to Bilibili Gaming and LGD.

With JackeyLove or without, Top Esports should have this one in the bag. At +100 for a 2-0 win, we don’t need to think twice before picking out a prediction for this match.
