eSports Betting: League of Legends LPL April 17 Matches
Friday, April 17 at 2:00 PM
LNG Sports vs. World Elite
- LNG +250
- Team WE -416
LNG Sports is sitting in 16th place in the 17-team LPL at a dismal 4-10 in series (29%) and 12-23 in games (34%). LNG has lost five straight coming into this affair including a 2-0 shutout loss against Royal Never Give Up on Monday. The defeat was LNG’s third straight shutout loss. Team WE is sitting in ninth place in the LPL standings at 6-7 in series (46%) and 15-17 in games (57%). World Elite has lost four of their last five and two straight including a 2-1 loss against Invictus on Wednesday.
LNG took the only head-to-head meeting against Team WE back in June of 2019, but this time around, World Elite is the pick to extract some revenge seeing as how LNG had dropped five straight while failing to win a single game over their last six games. Keep it simple and back Team WE to get the win to avenge their loss against LNG in their only previous meeting.
Pick: World Elite 2:1

JD Gaming vs. Dominus Esports
JD Gaming is is sitting in fourth place in the LPL standings at 10-4 in series (71%) and 22-10 in games (69%). JD Gaming has won five straight series including a 2-0 win over Rogue Warriors on April 14. JD gaming has recorded a mind-boggling four straight shutout wins. Dominus Esports is sitting in 14th place in the LPL standings at 6-9 in series (40%) and 14-19 in games (42%). Dominus has won three straight series and comes into this affair off a 2-0 shutout win over RNG on Wednesday.
This one looks like it’s going to be an all-out thriller, but in the end, I’m going with JD Gaming to extract some revenge for their 2-1 loss against Dominus on July 21 of last year. JD Gaming is playing lights out and hasn’t allowed an opponent to win a game in their last three series.
Pick: JD Gaming 2:1

This matchup looks like another flat-out thriller. Edward Gaming is playing lights out right now, but Invictus has been playing very well coming into this affair as well. In the end, I’m going with league-leading Invictus to send a message in this affair that all roads to the Spring LPL title will go through them.
Pick: Invictus 2:1
