- 2:00 a.m: LNG eSports v. Rogue Warriors

LNG (3-2) vs. Rogue Warriors (2-3)
The first game brings us a hot Rogue Warriors and a steady LNG team, both of whom are on two-game winning streaks. I expect RW to be chalk because of the numbers they've put up, but I believe these are skewed due to IG trolling and EDG punting Game 3. LNG's problem is their support, but other than that they have players who are able to coordinate well and have these clean games. LNG are a team that can punish a wild team like RW and this is a good spot for them to capitalize on their mistakes that EDG can't do.
Prediction: 2-1 maybe 2-0 LNG
Bets: LNG -1.5 (+155) if you're feeling frisky
EDG (2-3) vs. JD Gaming (5-1)
This game is very simple: JDG is looking to be a top-four team in the region. EDG has problems with leadership, Top and jungle proactivity, and this is a spot where JDG players will be too much for them. Aodi is starting for Xioaxang, but I think it's a downgrade. If EDG had their main roster with Jinoo and JieJie, I really think they could have given JDG a run for their money. I will be overweight on JDG, as I think this game will be really bloody like the LNG vs. RW game
Prediction: JDG 2-0
