Can Rogue continue the win streak? – LEC Spring Week 4
LEC Spring continues with its week 4 promotion! villain is the only undefeated team on the scoreboard: will they succeed against G2 this week? Let’s find out in our LEC Week 4 preview!
We’re going to take a look at two of the most hyped games of the week. Those interested in LoL betting will also find our favorite LoL odds selection.
MAD Lions vs Fnatic – Friday 22:00 CET
After the 5-0 last week Fnatic got pretty beaten in week 3, losing to both Rogue and G2 Esports. While Fnatic usually has a good early game, the team struggles to transition into the mid to late game. The other main difference in the two losing games is that the opponents had a much better team composition. Not only easier to pull off, but also a lot stronger in the meta.
MAD Lions also had a tough time last week, losing to Misfits Gaming in a very one-sided game. Just like Fnatic, I think MAD Lions tried to create a very aggressive composition that didn’t move forward. We’ll see how both Esports teams will readjust their design as it will become an important element of this series.
That being said, I still prefer Fnatic to come into this match. razor can match Elyoyas early game presence that has always been vital to MAD’s game plan. Aside from the jungle, which I think is pretty even, I think Fnatic has the better players in all other roles. I’m expecting a lot of action around Rift Herald and the upside of the map, with carries on both teams having relatively safe scaling picks. Be sure to analyze the draft before placing bets to better understand the intentions of the two teams. Below are some of the best odds for this series (offered by GG.BET):
- Winner: Fnatic (1.58x)
- First Blood: MAD Lions (1.97x)
- First Dragon: Fnatic (1.51x)
- First Herald: MAD Lions (1.73x)
- Total kills: over 26.5 (1.82x)
- Card Duration: Over 34.5 (1.92x)
Rogue vs. G2 – Saturday 21:00 CET
It’s now time to talk about the game of this LEC Spring Split Week 4! We mentioned how Rogue went head-to-head against Fnatic for first place, while G2 showed good stuff last week, beating both Misfits and Fnatic. When you get into this series, things may not be as obvious as they were before.
Rogue has mastered their easygoing playstyle for so long that it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Their designs are really well prepared and all players seem to have a good understanding of the current meta. While they have a default playstyle that they stick to, they make certain adjustments. It will be interesting to see if G2 can actually target specific picks from Rogue’s end. Larssen was good on Viktor and Comp loves playing Jinx: I expect both will be high priority in the series.
On the other hand, you can rely heavily on the G2 BrokenBlades champion pool. He has played against a different champion in every game so far. With G2 on the red side, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if BrokenBlade had the counter matchup against them Odomne. One thing is for sure, though, if G2 is going to battle Rogue, they need to gain an advantage in the top lane.
Speaking of top lane and all the action that’s going to happen up there, supports need to understand when to walk around the map. Both Trymbi and Targamas Enjoy playing Rakan and it is one of the best roaming supports that also offers good utility in team fights. Whoever chooses it should guarantee a better transition in the early midgame.
To round out our preview, I still think the series will likely go to Rogue. They’re known for being extremely consistent in BO1s and their split so far has shown that. G2 really needs to come out with an odd choice or force Rogue into a non-comfort zone (which is a lot harder based on the current meta). Below are the best odds for this series:
- Winner: Villain (1.4x)
- First Blood: G2 Esports (2.05x)
- First Dragon: Rogue (1.7x)
- First Herald: G2 Esports (2.13x)
- Card Duration: Over 32.5 (2.41x)
- Total kills: over 25.5 (1.71x)
