The first series of the day will be between the two bottom-placed teams, LGD Gaming and Team WE, who have a combined record of 1-18, meaning both will not be taking part in playoffs.

LGD Gaming have only won one series this split, against Anyone’s Legend in week three over a month ago. Over the last month, LGD have only won four maps out of their last 16 played, losing their last six series in a row.

Coming into the LPL Summer split, LGD Gaming had made three changes to their roster with their top-lane, mid-lane and AD carry all being substituted out after they finished second-last in the LPL Spring split. It is clear through the first nine series of this season that the players still learning how to play with each other and this split will just be about team-building and not so much winning series.

As for Team WE, they have not been able to win at all in their first 10 series in the LPL Summer split. With a total of five maps won from their 25 maps played so far this split, they are the favourites to take out the wooden spoon.

Since finishing in third place in the LPL Summer 2021 split, Team WE have finished in third-last and currently sit in last place in the current split. This roster may see a major overhaul after this split.

LGD Gaming may have only won one series so far this split, but they are still taking maps from teams that are beating them. Team WE are not. Therefore, we will be taking the favourites at the moneyline.

The second series of the day brings us two teams that are currently in the mid-table battle with OMG currently in 11th place with a 5-7 record and Anyone’s Legend sit in sixth place with a 7-4 record.

OMG have won five series so far this split with their most recent win coming against FunPlus Phoenix back in week six, but since that win they have lost their last two. OMG have only beaten two teams that sit above them in the standings, with FunPlus Phoenix being one of them and the other being LNG Esports.

OMG finished in 11th place in the LPL Spring split and they currently sit in the exact same place this split with four series left to play. This series against Anyone’s Legend and the next three series are must-wins for OMG, with just one slip-up putting them out of playoff contention.

Anyone’s Legend are the big improvers from the spring to the summer in the LPL. They hold a 7-4 record, after they could only manage five wins and a 13th-place finish for the entire LPL Spring split. Anyone’s Legend have won four of their last five series after a rocky 3-3 start.

Anyone’s Legend have the hardest schedule to finish the LPL Summer split with three of their last five series coming against Top Esports (1st), JD Gaming (2nd) and RNG (4th), with all of those teams sitting above them. They will need to win at least three of their last five games to make the playoffs, otherwise they will have to rely on other results falling their way.

This series sets up as an absolute belter as both teams have to win. Anyone’s Legend bring the superior form to this series, however, and that is why we will be backing the moneyline favourites to take out this do-or-die clash.

Team WE to win
