Two of the four LPL and LCK series this Thursday night have potential to be tight, with the other two series offering potentially sneaky underdogs that could be necessary if they pull off the big upsets.
LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK Slate Breakdown
Throughout the LCK split KT has demonstrated just about every level of play a team can, and currently sit just outside the playoffs in seventh place. Beating DRX is possible, and naturally helps their playoff chances, and if they come out on top, KT is averaging 14.75 kills in game wins, making Aiming his typical, likely lower owned, LoL DFS play.
Currently DRX functions as a gatekeeper to the top five, having beaten DK, and the teams below them, while losing to the current top three in the LCK. DRX are sizable favorites tonight, but KT has shown enough flashes to make this more than competitive tonight, regardless of if DRX shows their early season form against the currently lower rated teams, they can offer LoL DFS relevance tonight.
LoL DFS players tend to really like AL, and it’s easy to see why as they challenge the top teams, while producing good scores when they win. The problem with AL is that they’ve been a team to play at the level of their opponent, and by chance TT is playing much better this split, so unless the general LoL DFS populace undervalues AL, Betty is a player that offers massive upside, even against a team in TT that dies the second fewest times per game in the LPL.
Quietly on a two series win streak, TT are punching upwards this split, while currently sitting just outside of the playoffs. Much of the success for TT revolves around their jungler Beichuan, who is demonstrating that if you are strong at that position, the pieces around it can shine, with Kepler being someone being LoL DFS relevant after the injury to Puff.
Rounding out the LCK side of this LoL DFS slate is DK, and their attempt to distance themselves from the current last playoff team in KDF. DK rebounded well against HLE, after a loss to DRX, and being a top three team in the LCK in kills per game, alongside an impressive 2.6 assists per kill, puts DK in a potentially sneaky spot tonight.

After an easier part of the schedule, KDF rounds out the first LCK round robin with a stout test against KDF. Winning here would put distance between them and the rest of the LCK playoff hopefuls, and with DK being a beatable team some nights, taking chances on a player like Kiin in a potentially volatile top lane could be intriguing.
Exiting a clinical 2-0 victory over EDG, V5 gets a considerably easier series tonight in IG. V5 is undefeated currently, and while they’re unlikely to not drop a series at some point, it’s difficult to envision tonight being that night, and with how V5 projects on this LoL DFS slate, getting to them, even at their price, remains a priority in what should be another 2-0 series win for the undefeated LPL team.
More often than not IG are more competitive than their overall record would have LoL DFS players believe, as they’ve only been swept twice, while also getting a sweep over FPX in their only win. IG carry a low likelihood of pulling even a game win out of the hat tonight, but if they give V5 their third, or even fourth losses of this LPL split, Mole against his old team could be a difference maker as the starter tonight.
Best LoL DFS Pick
ADC-Photic. In terms of talent discrepancy, V5 takes the cake this LoL DFS split, and even with the prices being so high, getting to V5 should be a priority tonight.
Best contrarian LoL DFS Pick
JNG-Beichuan. Putting TT in a position to succeed is an incredible feat, and that’s largely what the jungler for TT has done, and in a series against an often-popular AL, choosing the other side in a winnable series could pay off.
