G2 Esports and Fnatic failed to qualify for the LEC final, something that hasn’t happened in years. Instead, we have Rogue facing MAD Lions once again after meeting in the first round of the playoffs. Rogue have high expectations for this match after suffering a surprising defeat in the first encounter. The game is scheduled for April 11 afternoon and our Rogue vs MAD Lions predictions favor the former.
Rogue vs MAD Lions Predictions – Rogue’s Revenge
Rogue have been the most reliable team throughout the regular season and are favorite to win the match. They were able to recover after dropping the opening match in the semifinals against G2 Esports. Now they must extend the winning streak against a team that has caused them plenty of headaches in the past.
Rogue are known as a team capable of snowballing leads if they happen to get an advantage. Given their strong early game, we expect them to take the lead early on and build on it to win the opening match. MAD Lions are a strong opponent and one capable of defeating them in at least one match. Our prediction is that Rogue will prevail in four games, with GG.bet offering odds of 4.00 on a 3:1 score line.
Rogue are the Ultimate Dragon Slayers in the LEC
MAD Lions are an aggressive team, capable of pushing opponents into a corner, early in the game. They have a high percentage of scoring the first blood and always posture aggressively around the Herald. On the other hand, Rogue are the best team in the LEC when it comes to killing the first Dragon.
A quick glance at their performance throughout the regular season and the playoffs will reveal some stunning numbers. Rogue have slain the first Dragon in the match in a whopping 75%, compared to less than 50% for MAD Lions. Stacking dragons has been the recipe for success throughout the year and they will stick to this tactic. Luckbox offers even odds on this outcome, so it’s definitely worth backing Rogue.
