Moose breaks down DraftKings League of Legends LPL-LCK – April 4 – 2:00 AM EST
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.
Three game tight slate so just going to cover games very quickly.
KT vs APK
I like KT in this matchup as my hard favorite and I think that APK aren’t that bad either. In this case though, KT are a much more solid team and should be able to pull out a W. I would still hedge if possible but KT are a -400 favorite. Sohwan will be subbed if he loses a game. The rest of the starters are safe I think.
SB vs HLE
Complete fiesta, I am not sure who is going to win this game. Avoid Punch, Summit, OnFleek, and Lonely as they are all subable on the SB side. Avoid Zenit/Lava/Vsta as they are all taking turns playing ADC for Hanwha Life. I don’t think they will sit Dove for Fate.
GEN vs DRX
I am going to go with GEN in this matchup based on history but there is nothing set in stone. DragonX are one of my favorite teams to watch and ride and I will probably take them +1.5 in this matchup. Games tonight are too close. Avoid Kellin or Life, not sure who is starting. My suspicions say Life.
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 GPP’s regularly and those who fall off.
Rascal (GEN) $6,200 TOP
Very serviceable top and my only clear cut choice. I even made a KT/SB lineup and used Rascal anyway. Sohwan really is useless.
Clid (GEN) $6,800 JNG, Pyosik $6,200 JNG, bonO $7,200 JNG
Jungle is the place to spend today and I think Bon0 is priced correctly for the odds on KT.
BDD (GEN) $7,800, Tempt (HLE) $7,000, Cover (APK) $7,000 MID
Going to have to spend up today at mid as well.
Ruler (GEN) $7,600, Aiming (KT) $8,200, Route (SB) $8,000, Deft (DRX) $7,400 ADC
These are the best ADCs on the slate honestly, so just pick your poison.
Keria (DRX) $4,800, Gorilla (SB) $5,000, Tusin (KT) $5,600 SUP
No value at all unless you are going DRX. Tusin would be my main pick for today unless DRX win. In that case, Keria will be much more involved and price out well.
Sample Cash Lineup (Pick your position edition tonight)
I don’t know who is going to win between two of the close matches, but I am willing to ride with GEN tonight and hope for the best. Hedging with DRX is important.
The Sandbox/Hanwha Life game could be a popper and we need fiestas to score higher points. Stacking one of the two with a favored team is probably the way to go.
