Misfits Gaming -106/ FC Shalke 04 -119
Misfits Gaming faces off against FC Schalke 04 in this game seven matchup of the 2019 LEC Spring Season.
Misfits Gaming sits in fourth place with a 4-2 record and is coming off a dominating win over Fnatic where Misfits Gaming gave up only two kills and did not relinquish a tower, dragon, or Baron to Fnatic. This matchup meant a lot for sOAZ who made the team change from Fnatic to Misfits Gaming after losing at the World’s to Invictus Gaming. Fnatic has only won one game in this spring season so it is not as hyped of a win as most people think. Misfits Gaming was supposed to win this game and they did just that. Misfits has the players to be a really well-balanced team but as a new team the chemistry just has not been there when they start to lose the early game. As more games are played for Misfits Gaming, I am hoping that they get the communication back on track and play up to their skill level. Even though they dominated against Fnatic the matchup against Schalke 04 will be much more difficult and Misfits Gaming has yet to win a matchup against a skilled team such as FC Schalke 04.
FC Schalke 04 sits in second place with a record of 5-1 with that only loss coming against G2 Esports who are undefeated and hold the first-place spot. FC Schalke 04 started the season off with that loss and now have won 5 straight games. FC Schalke 04 is currently the 12th ranked league of legends team in the world and are still on the rise. Misfits Gaming currently sits in 62nd place in the world rankings.
Currently in the 2019 Spring Season these teams have a combined record of 6-6 on the over/under 23.5 kills but the last four games played by these teams have gone under. I like the under in this matchup as well as FC Schalke 04 taking this game to Misfits Gaming and being the first to ten kills. Also pick FC Schalke 04 to win this matchup as Misfits Gaming just has not proven themselves against competitive teams just yet.
