The LPL is widely regarded as the strongest League of Legends region and the 2021 season is about to start. The first matches are scheduled for the weekend and they will feature the teams that played at the Worlds in November 2020. TOP Esports, JD Gaming and Team WE are expected to kick start the season with victories, but they face experienced opponents that won’t give up without a fight.
LPL 2021 SINGLE BETS Predictions
Suning Gaming can do it again Versus TOP Esports
Suning Gaming were the pleasant surprise at Worlds where they cause the untimely elimination of TOP Esports. The Chinese team also defeated G2 Esports in the group stage to claim first place and the same players will perform on the opening day. They take on TOP Esports, which is regarded as the strongest LPL team and one that defeated them twice last season. Given recent form and the results at Worlds, odds of 4.50 offered by Unikrn are just too tempting to turn down, so it’s worth backing Suning to win again.
Bet on another JD Gaming Win over Invictus Gaming
The most anticipated game of the opening round of the LPL will pit JD Gaming against Invictus Gaming. These teams are among the favorites to reach postseason and they have a balanced head to head record. Invictus Gaming dominated the series in 2017 and 2018, but JD Gaming got the better of them in the last few years. We believe that they have the experience and confidence to extend the current three-game winning streak and defeat Invictus Gaming 2-0. They’ve won the last two series to nil and if they do it again, punters who bet on this outcome will be paid at 3.50 by GG.bet.
LPL 2021 COMBO BETS Predictions
Trust Edward Gaming and Team WE to Sweep Opponents
Edward Gaming play the second game of the opening day and they will be facing a team that never defeated them in the LPL. The two teams met on 10 occasions and EDG won all games, while dropping a match on just twice. Furthermore, there last four matches in the LPL were all clean sweeps, so we expect them to win by 2-0 once again, an outcome priced at 1.80 by Luckbox.
The same bookmaker offers odds of 1.90 on Team WE to start the season on an equally strong note against Rogue Gaming. They are on a five-game winning streak against his opponent, yet only twice were they able to win to nil. Team WE is worth trusting at this point because the squad performed above expectations during the Demacia Cup and its players are well prepared to take on Rogue Gaming.
Our suggested Acca bet for January 9 & 10 is EDG + Team WE both to win 2-0 at combined odds of 5/2.
