TOP ESPORTS vs SUNING LPL SUMMER BETTING PREVIEW

Top Esports will look to bounce back from a rare loss this Thursday when they clash with Suning, who enter the second-to-last week of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) Summer 2020 regular season as one of the hottest teams in the division.

Top Esports looked unstoppable throughout the opening six weeks of the split but seemingly run out of steam in Week 7, when they lost their first series against the rejuvenated Victory Five (1-2). While Hung “Karsa” Hao-Hsuan and his crew regained some confidence with two sweeps against ViCi Gaming and Dominus Esports, they ended up dropping another fixture on Sunday when they were outmatched by Invictus Gaming (2-0).

Despite their two hiccups, Top Esports remain one of the favourites to claim the LPL Summer crown and can still finish top two to secure a spot on the semi-finals. However, anything less than a 4-0 run through the final two weeks could put them at risk of missing out on the top four.

Suning enter this match as one of the biggest surprises in the LPL this season. Given they finished in 11th place last split, Xiang “Angel” Tao and his team have gone well above anyone’s expectations.

Since their three losses to JD Gaming (0-2), Invictus Gaming (0-2) and EDward Gaming (1-2) in the early weeks of the split, Suning have won eight consecutive matches to climb into the top three at 10-3. They hold the fifth-highest game win rate at 21-13 as well as the fourth-lowest average death count per game (11.3), fifth-highest gold differential per minute (+86 GDM) and fifth-highest gold per minute (1789 GPM).

Mid laner Angel (4.4 KDA, 26.4% damage share) and ADC Tang “huanfeng” Huan-Feng (4.6 KDA, 30.3% damage share) are the main carries in this team, while top laner Chen “Bin” Ze-Bin is averaging 2.9 KDA and 22.8% damage share. Lê “SofM” Quang Duy’s numbers for the split are less impressive, yet he is still one of the most impactful jungers in the LPL and has lifted his KDA to 4.36 in the past three weeks, which is 12% higher than his season average of 3.9.

Despite their excellent form, Suning are still highly underestimated by both the LoL community and esports bookmakers. Even so, it is hard to understand how they are priced as such huge underdogs for this bout after eight consecutive wins.

Suning’s penchant for playing out all three games in a series makes them difficult to back against good opposition. However, it does mean they are every chance to take at least one map in any given contest.

Top Esports have lost two out of their last four matches. While they had no real issues defeating ViCi and Dominus, they do not look nearly as dominant as they did in the early stages of the split.

For that reason, we are not comfortable siding with the favourites in either the head-to-head betting or the handicap market. Suning should take at least one map and cover the line, while there is also some value in backing them to spring the upset.
