SinoDragon faces off against Vici gaming in this week three matchup of the LPL 2019 Spring Season.

SinoDragon sits tied for fifth place with a series record of 2-1 and a game record of 4-2.

SinoDragon started off the season against the high powered EDward Gaming where SinoDragon could not pull out a map win.  Since that loss SinoDragon has defeated Snake Esports and Team WE not losing a game against those two teams. SinoDragon is looking to continue their hot streak, but they will have to get through Vici Gaming first. 

Vici Gaming has yet to put a win on the board this 2019 LPL Spring Season but that does not mean they aren’t competitive. Vici Gaming has the bad luck of playing Suning and EDward Gaming which are two of the better teams in the LPL.  In both of those series Vici Gaming took their opponent the distance but ultimately lost the series putting them at the bottom of the standings. The fact that Vici Gaming was able to win games off of Suning and EDward Gaming shows that they are here to play and should not be written off.  Look for Vici Gaming to be competitive in this matchup and have a chance to pull out a series win. 

When we look at this matchup and the pricing on both teams I just can’t find the value. I can see both of these teams winning the series. SinoDragon has yet to force a game three in all three of their games, but Vici Gaming has done so in both of theirs. Over 2.5 games is sitting at +107 which is a bet to look for. I think when you look at the best bet we have to look at the over/under kills in the first game at 24.5. Out of the twelve games played only two have gone over 24 kills. In first game matches the under is 3-1 between these two teams combined. I like under 24.5 total kills in map 1 at -114.


Temple’s Pick Under 24.5 kills (Map 1) -114

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a Sports Chat Place site consensus.
