G2 faces off against SK Gaming in this week’s matchup of the 2019 LEC Spring season.

G2 sits at the top of the standings with a 4-0 record and coming off a dominate win over Rogue where G2 took the game in a total of 23 minutes and 11 seconds.  This is one of the fastest games played in the LEC so far and Rogue never stood a chance.  Caps is arguably the best League of Legends player in the world and he showed why in this game against Rogue.  Caps dominated the mid lane and ended up with seven total kills and five assists.  Rogue was not even able to grab a tower in this game which shows how much better G2 really was against them.   G2 is one of the best tams in the world and everyone is looking forward to their game against Misfit Gaming but to get there they have to go through SK Gaming first.

SK Gaming is currently in 6th place at a record of 2-2.  SK Gaming is coming off an impressive win over Excel Esports where SK won the game in just over 28 minutes and had 8 kills.  SK played the game slowly and Excel Esports never really put up a fight.  In this matchup Excel Esports never wanted a big team fight and just let SK Gaming walk into their base and take the Nexus turret without any competition.  G2 will not allow that to happen and SK Gaming is hungry to take down the best team at the LEC. SK Gaming is going to have to have the best game of their lives if they want to win this game and hope Caps for G2 doesn’t show up. 

The over/under for this matchup is set at 24.5.  Both teams combined over/under record is 5-3 so if we had to choose, we would go with the over in this matchup.  I think we can find better bets though.  I like G2 to take the game to SK Gaming and continue their dominance.  I like G2 to get the first kill, be the first team to ten kills, and get the first tower.  For this matchup that’s three good bets and one that we are on the fence about. 


Temple’s Pick G2 to get first kill -139/ G2 first to ten kills -303/ G2 to get first tower -217/ Over 24.5 total kills -130

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