SKT faces off against SANDBOX Gaming in this week two matchup of the 2019 LCK Spring Season.
SKT sits at 2-0 in the series wins and 4-0 in games played to start of the LCK. SKT defeated Jin Air Green Wings 2-0 and then went on to beat Afreeca Freecs 2-0 as well. In the first game against Jin Air SKT posted 12 kills and won the game behind Clid's 4 kills and 7 assists. The second game was an even one with 6 kills for both SKT and Jin Air but SKT closed out the game with a 2-0 Series win. Against Afreeca Freecs SKT dominated the first game with ten total kills and 1 death. SKT continued that domination into game 2 where they put up 16 kills and closed the game just past 25 minutes extending their record to where it sits now.
SKT is looking to keep that momentum going against SANDBOX Gaming.
SANDBOX Gaming is also 2-0 in series play and 4-0 in games played. SANDBOX Gaming defeated Gen.G 2-0 and beat Kingzone DragonX 2-0. SANDBOX Gaming opened their first game against Gen.G with 19 kills and then posted 9 kills in the second game to close the series 2-0. SANDBOX Gaming then put up 18 and 19 kill games against Kingzone DragonX resulting in that being a 2-0 series win.
SKT has an average of 15 total kills in their two matchups played while SANDBOX Gaming has an average of 25.25 total kills. This matchup easily has the chance of beating that 19.5 total kill mark in the first game as well as game two and three if necessary.
In regards to the total time of the matches SKT has an average of 28.5 minutes which SANDBOX Gaming has an average of 32.5 minutes plays. With the over/under at 32 minutes for each game played we just don’t see the value.
Both SKT and SANDBOX Gaming have yet to lose but something has to give. In this matchup we expect SKT to continue their dominant run and give that first series loss to SANDBOX Gaming. We also like over 19.5 kills in the first game of the series as we look for SANDBOX Gaming to be aggressive.
