TOP ESPORTS vs ESTAR LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREVIEW

Top Esports will lock horns with eStar for the first time this season in their third-to-last fixture of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Spring Split.

To say eStar have looked strong this season would be a massive understatement. Assembled almost entirely from LPL rookies, they have gone above and beyond everyone’s expectations by establishing themselves as one of the strongest teams in the LPL.

Having said that, eStar’s showings through the last two weeks were less than inspiring. After losses to ViCi Gaming (1-2), Royal Never Give Up (0-2) and JD Gaming (0-2), it remains to be seen how they will stack up against a new and improved Top Esports squad that now includes Yu “JackeyLove” Wen-Bo.

We finally got to see the 2018 world champion in action on Monday when he helped his new team to a comfortable 2-0 win over Victory Five. Although JackeyLove’s 2.73 KDA, 8.64 CSPM, 56.6% KPAR and 13.2% KS in that match are hardly groundbreaking numbers, it’s worth noting it was his first competitive fixture since the 2019 LoL World Championship last November.

Top’s 9-5 run is only an extension of their solid performances in the 2019 LPL Summer Split, where Luo “BSYY” Sheng’s squad pocketed silver in the regular season and bronze in the playoffs. The team have been playing well and their consistency against the weaker sides makes them strong contenders for a top-five finish.

The big question is whether Top Esports can match the stronger when it matters most. They have dropped the ball against the likes of Invictus, JD and RNG this season, so they will want to show lot more in their clash with eStar on Thursday and their closing fixture against FunPlus Phoenix next Monday.

TOP ESPORTS vs ESTAR LPL SPRING SPLIT BETTING PREDICTIONS

Top Esports might be the weaker side on paper, but they have a real chance to prove the doubters wrong here. JackeyLove is still dusting off the cobwebs and will only improve on Monday’s showing, while there is a suggestion that eStar’s young squad are feeling the pressure after three losses in five matches. Top can guarantee a playoff spot and send a message to the big guns with a win on Thursday.
