On a slate with teams either fighting for playoff positioning, or looking to even make playoffs, tonight is an opportunity in LoL DFS to get creative with the LCK favorites being big, and the LPL teams being more affordable.

LoL DFS Picks: DraftKings LPL + LCK Slate Breakdown

LIIV SANDBOX

Opening the LoL DFS slate is one of the biggest LCK surprises in LSB, taking on the biggest disappointment across any major region in NS. LSB appears poised to take their record to 9-4, gaining momentum, and while they’re extremely unlikely to contend for a top two spot, winning here gets them closer to a top four seeding, with Prince and Kael offering potential in this series.

With their support situation, including not trying out Peter who went 11-13 with NS last split being only one of the many issues with NS, tonight offers NS a chance to play spoiler. NS realistically only needs to marginally improve everywhere to challenge LSB tonight, and while the latent talent always looks appealing, it’s difficult to envision their losing streak not hitting nine, even if their LoL DFS ownership outlook could make them worth a sprinkle.

ULTRA PRIME

Being an underperforming team is never ideal, nonetheless UP are still hanging on to playoff dreams, and tonight offers them a great opportunity as they take on IG. From a LoL DFS perspective, UP are near the bottom of the LPL in kills per game, but they get an IG team at the top in terms of deaths per game, so if they get the win they desperately need, someone like H4cker could end up projecting quite well.

INVICTUS GAMING

Expecting anything from either of these LPL teams is difficult to ask for, but someone needs to win tonight, and if IG are motivated after their win against WE, there are few better teams to get another series win than UP. IG demonstrated a quality game one win over WE, before losing to a WE team that wasn’t sure how to win in game two, before scraping together enough to win in game three, and if they find two wins here, Ahn is someone to keep an eye on.

GEN.G

Likely the headline of this LoL DFS slate is GEN as they take on a potentially revamped DRX squad. Up to this point, GEN has been the picture of consistency, being one of the few teams to constantly pull out 2-0 victories, making them reliable LoL DFS options at worst on most slates. GEN can once again offer a solid baseline in a series win, but an improvement over their 22 total kills against DRX in the first series will be necessary to pay off their prices tonight.

DRX

Coming off an exciting 2-1 series win over DK, DRX is riding a two series win streak in their attempt to upset the best team in the LCK in GEN. In their first meeting with GEN, DRX played an extremely competitive game one, and had an opportunity to win before GEN simply outplayed them once en route to the win. DRX has been a little more exciting for LoL DFS in their wins recently, but getting a win here will be difficult, even if Pyosik plays well.

BILIBILI GAMING

Sitting just outside of the last playoff spot, currently occupied by FPX, a win here could make them serious contenders for that spot, especially since their remaining schedule is relatively soft outside of a meeting against V5. BLG still needs to play very well to beat an inconsistent FPX team, but if they manage to get it done, it could happen through a strong top lane performance from Bin.

FUNPLUS PHOENIX

Losing their last series to former jungler Beichuan, FPX finds themselves in a tricky spot, albeit one that’s still not too bad for playoffs considering their remaining schedule. Currently it’s tricky to pinpoint a single spot where FPX massively outshines a struggling BLG roster, outside of possibly the ADC position, and even with Lwx being in one of the best spots this split, if his ownership ticks too high, considering other options could be wise.

Best LoL DFS Pick

ADC-Prince. Showing upside throughout this LCK split, Prince is someone that has not only a high floor tonight but can put together an even higher score than he had against NS last time out.

Best Contrarian LoL DFS Pick

JNG-Weiwei. With BLG stacks not having an ADC to pick from with Doggo not in the pool, any lineups with BLG might be a bit more duplicated than LoL DFS players would like, but with the changes it appears that BLG are still dedicated to making a playoff run, and a victorious BLG tonight could bring a strong performance from Weiwei.
