DraftKings LoL: Sunday NA Cheat Sheet

This article is part of our DraftKings LoL series.

Team SoloMid (1-2) vs. Echo Fox (3-0)

Vegas Win Odds: Pick’em

Despite this game being a pick’em, I don’t know how you don’t back Echo Fox in this matchup. TSM picked up their first win of the season yesterday in a long, meticulous take down of OpTic Gaming, but they won’t be afforded that same luxury on Sunday. Echo Fox look to come out and throw haymakers early and they are not afraid to go for the big play. They lead the NA LCS with 50 kills in three games for an average of over 18 kills per game. It’s impossible for me to not play Echo Fox at cheap salaries in a game they should win. If it goes late I give TSM a chance, but I think Echo Fox turn on the heat early and TSM’s cohesion issues keep them from hanging around until the hour mark. I usually don’t like to go with full on stacks in cash especially, but I don’t see how you don’t play as much Echo Fox exposure as possibly at these cheap prices.

Prediction: Echo Fox win

TSM Players to consider: Bjergsen ($7,200)

FOX Players to consider: Huni ($6,100), Altec ($7,000), Dardoch ($5,800), Adrian ($5,000), Echo Fox Team ($4,400)

Cloud9 (2-1) vs. 100 Thieves (3-0)

Vegas Win Odds: Pick’em

C9 are priced as the third highest favorites on the board despite a pick’em matchup against 100 Thieves. 100 Thieves are one of two undefeated teams left in the NA LCS after taking down Team Liquid in impressive fashion on Saturday, while C9 dropped an action-packed game against Echo Fox. This is a difficult one for me to predict as both teams have looked good during their opening three games.You just have to back a side here and roll with their players. For me, I think it’s going to be 100 Thieves. They are playing the cleaner League of Legends at the start of the season, leading all LCS teams with a 2.4 KDA as they have 36 kills to only 15 deaths through three games. Cloud9 have been explosive in picking up 45 kills through three games, but they’ve also given away 43 deaths.

Prediction: 100 Thieves narrow win

C9 Players to consider: Jensen ($7,300), Smoothie ($5,500)

100 Players to consider: Ssumday ($6,000), Cody Sun ($6,800), Aphromoo ($4,900), 100 Thieves Team ($4,300)

OpTic Gaming (0-3) vs. FlyQuest (2-1)

Vegas Win Odds: Pick’em

Another pick’em game here as OpTic look for their first win against FlyQuest. I think this game has the potential to be the lowest scoring matchup on the day and it’s going to be a fade for me in my lineups. Averaging the longest game times so far this split, OpTic have a bottom three kill total as a team, so despite the long game times there hasn’t been a ton of action in their matches. FlyQuest’s 2-1 record is a bit misleading as they come into the day with more deaths than kills despite their winning record. It’s hard for me to even make a prediction with much confidence for this game, another reason why I’ll be staying away.

Prediction: OpTic win in a long, slow game

OPT Players to consider: WildTurtle ($7,200), Keane ($7,100)

FLY Players to consider: Arrow ($7,100), PowerOfEvil ($7,000)

Golden Guardians (0-3) vs. Counter Logic Gaming (0-3)

Vegas Win Odds: CLG 69%

The battle of the unbeatens here, but CLG come in as the day’s second biggest favorites according to the Vegas odds and the highest priced plays of the day. It’s really scary to back CLG at these prices as they have both the lowest total kills as a team (17) and the highest death total as a team (46) coming into the game. I can’t go full CLG stack here, but something has to change for this team and I believe they’ll pick up their first win Sunday. CLG still have a talented group of players and a coach that is highly regarded by everyone in the North American scene.

Prediction: CLG fairly one sided win

GGS Players to consider: None

CLG Players to consider: Huhi ($7,800), Stixxay ($7,900)

Team Liquid (2-1) vs. Clutch Gaming (2-1)

Vegas Win Odds: TL 71%

Team Liquid are the highest Vegas favorites of the day while being priced on Draftkings as the second most expensive options. Despite dropping their first game of the season against 100 Thieves, I expect Liquid to bounce back with a win today. The roster remains supremely talented and a loss to 100 Thieves is nothing to be overly concerned with. Clutch also come into the day at 2-1, but their wins come against two 0-3 teams in CLG and Golden Guardians. Clutch certainly have a chance, but I’d expect Team Liquid to come out of Sunday’s final game with the win.

Prediction: Team Liquid fairly one sided win

TL Players to consider: Xmithie ($6,600), Pobelter ($7,700), Doublelift ($7,700)

CG Players to consider: Febiven ($6,300), Lira ($5,300)
