Moose breaks down DraftKings League of Legends LPL-LCK – March 27, 2:00 AM PST
Teams to Target
When playing a DraftKings League of Legends tournament, it is important to team stack and focus on narrowing down the teams that will provide the best chance of winning. Total score is determined by kills, assists and overall player performance in each LoL game that happens on the rift, but the goal is always to aim and stack winning teams for the easiest chance at taking down cash games and GPP tournaments. We take a closer look at what teams might be able to provide us an edge.
Like last night, LCK and LPL teams like to make substitutions and get their rookies time to play games. Sometimes, those subs screw us. Last night, the sub helped us as it took Cuzz out of the competition and he wasn’t in our cash lineup. However, that ruined most of my GPPs. This is why Asian League of Legends is tough.
FPX $6,000 TEAM
FPX is not value, but I think they win against OMG tonight.
eStar $5,800 TEAM
Again, not really any value on the slate but I think they win against LNG.
KT Rolster $5,600 TEAM
My value pick and one of my favorite picks. I am like 65/35 between using KT and SB for our value tonight but I am going to roll with the Rolster tonight. The difference for me was that they’ve had a long good run compared to Sandbox, who decided to show up just yesterday. The only downside is if KT subs out Sohwan or Bono. I don’t think they do, but who knows.
Sandbox $5,200 TEAM
Sandbox is a great pick here because they are facing a very, very shitty Griffin team that should easily be able to be dominated. I think we get a nice fiesta here and I am loving the value of the team. I had a weird mix of SB players for this slate but I’ve decided to go away from them in cash because, after everything, they are a 3-7 team.
Players to Target
Player knowledge is just as important as team knowledge. Knowing where a player can shine in a line is what separates the people who cash GPPs regularly and those who fall off.
Aiming (KT) $7,200 ADC
The kid is freaking good at League of Legends and comes at a nice price. He is the centerpiece of KT and we need him tonight.
Doinb (FPX) $8,000 MID
Dominant veteran facing icon, who is going to struggle to play against FPX compared to his destruction of V5.
XiaoBai (ES) $7,200 TOP
Best top laner on the slate.
Kanavi (JDG) $7,400 and Pyosik (DRX) $6,000 JNG
There is no value at jungle on this slate, but if you are going to play DRX or JDG players, you have to include their junglers.
Gorilla (SB) $5,200 and Tusin (KT) $5,200 SUP
Gorilla is a better player than Tusin but if you’re rolling KT might as well keep it consistent. These are strong value support plays, where there is none on the slate.
Sample Cash Lineup
Please lord KT, do not sub any of these beautiful people in my cash lineup out. Sohwan is terrible but Ray is worse. We found value with Sohwan, Tusin, and Sandbox.
GPPs tonight are a lot of 50/50 games. Take chances on teams that people wouldn’t expect to win, like HLE, LNG, T1 or DRX, RNG or JDG.
