VICI GAMING vs ROGUE WARRIORS LPL SUMMER BETTING PREVIEW

Rogue Warriors will look to claim their first win of the split this Tuesday when they clash with ViCi Gaming during the sixth week of League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2020 Summer.

Rogue Warriors’ situation ahead of this bout is as bad as it gets, as they have managed to win only two games out of 16 played. So far, they have lost against Top Esports (0-2), Invictus Gaming (0-2), Suning (0-2), Team WE (0-2), JD Gaming (1-2), Oh My God (1-2) and EDward Gaming (0-2).

With a 0-7 record, Rogue Warriors are more or less guaranteed to miss out on the playoffs, considering eight losses is the maximum any team can have in order to still make it to the postseason.

With all due respect, there are not a lot of positives to take from Rogue Warriors’ performances this split. Not only do they lack quality and experience, but as a team they look lost on the Rift.

Mid laner Lee “Ruby” Sol-min is the best-performing player for Rogue Warriors with a 2.6 KDA, 76.9% KPAR and 30.6% damage share, but even those are some of the worst marks out of all LPL mid laners.

After a tough start to the split, ViCi Gaming found their rhythm and picked up two crucial wins against LNG Esports (2-1) and eStar (2-1). Even though those wins were not exactly clean, it’s a start and it at least puts ViCi back on the right track.

ViCi have won three out of six games played, taking down Bilibili (2-0), LNG and eStar but losing to Royal Never Give Up (0-2), Team WE (0-2), and Victory Five (0-2). Those three defeats all came against strong teams, so there is no need to raise the alarm.

Looking back at ViCi’s most recent bout against eStar, they narrowly lost the opening game of the series but bounced back with commanding triumphs in game two and three, which they won with +11.7k and +13.2k gold leads respectively.

Top laner Da “Cube” Yi had a phenomenal performance that day and ended the series with 13/4/27 and 10 KDA, while ADC Hu “iBoy” Xian-Zhao also impressed with his 18/5/28 record and 9.1 KDA. All five members played well against eStar and if ViCi can continue playing at this pace, playoffs are a realistic goal.

VICI GAMING vs ROGUE WARRIORS LPL SUMMER BETTING PREDICTION

Although ViCi Gaming still need to prove their Week 5 performance was not a fluke, they look far better than Rogue Warriors and are rightfully priced as massive favourites ahead of this match.

ViCi have better players in all five roles and boast far better objective control and vision control, while they also tend to be more efficient in farming. The two teams have shown a similar level of aggression this split, which suggests we are in for a match with plenty of small skirmishes across the map.

ViCi dropped a game against LNG Esports at the end of Week 4, which might imply they will lose at least one here, but after their performance against eStar, we find it hard to believe that will be the case. A 2-0 win for ViCi seems like the most likely outcome, so back them to cover the -1.5 handicap at decent odds.
