League Of Legends LEC Weekend Matches April 10th
Friday, April 10 at 11:00 AM
Group Stage Best of 5 Series
Rogue vs Origen
- Rogue +235
- Origen -345
Origen has won three of five, but they’ve also dropped two straight including a 3-1 loss against Fnatic in the first round of the layoffs on April 4. Origen finished in third place in the LEC standings at 13-5. Bot laner Upset ranks second in the LEC in KDA with a stellar 7.64 while teammate and jungler Xerxe ranks sixth with a fine, 5.85 KDA. Rogue has lost four of their last five games, but they managed to subdue Misfits Gaming 3-1 in their playoff opener on April 5. Still, no player on their roster has a higher KDA than bot laner Hans sama’s 4.22.
League of Legends Prediction
There’s a reason why Origen is such a huge favorite in this matchup and it’s because they are, by far, the better and more cohesive team in this pairing. Not only that, but after they got taken down in their playoff opener by a Fnatic team that finished the regular season with an identical 13-5 record, I’m fully expecting Origen to be seriously focused from the outset in this one! This matchup looks like an anti-climatic affair just waiting to happen.
LOL Pick: Origen 3-1

MAD Lions vs Fnatic
- MAD Lions +315
- Fnatic -500
The MAD Lions finished the regular season in fourth place at 11-7. They’ve alternated wins and losses over their last four matchups but managed to sneak past G2 3-2 in their playoff opener on April 3. Second place 2019 summer runner-up Fnatic has won three of their last four and they come into this matchup off a solid 3-1 win over Origen in the first round of the playoffs.
I’m going to keep my esports expert pick here simple by saying that Fnatic is the easy pick based on the fact that bot laner Rekkles is far and away the best player in this matchup – and possibly the entire LEC with his jaw-dropping 9.9 KDA. While Lions bot laner Caps and jungler Jankos are both elite players that won’t bow out without putting up a real fight, I’m going with Fnatic to take another step toward reaching the finals after coming up just short of doing so in the 2019 summer campaign. This one looks like a thriller just waiting to happen, but I like Fnatic to get it done!
LOL Pick: Fnatic 3-2
