LPL - EDG (5-4) vs DMO (3-7)
Dominus Gaming has looked good despite losing two contests in Week 4 against some of the upper echelon of the LPL. They did record a sweep of Rogue Warriors (4-6) last Thursday, and just picked up a 2-0 win against LNG Esports (4-6) just the other day, but I don't want to dive into this team as much because they still have a lot of problems, including basic synergy. EDward Gaming on the other hand, are on a different level, roster wise. They acknowledge where to play on the map, they have two solid carries in Scout and Hope and they have an in-game veteran making all the shot calling. This team should not lose to a bottom-tier team, and I know I say this a lot with all the upsets that have been going on, but EDG is one of the few teams that are good enough to not lose to bad teams.
Prediction: EDG 2-0
EDG Players to target: Junjia (JNG $7,200), Scout (MID $7,800) Hope (ADC $8,200), Meiko (SUP $5,600)
V5 (0-10) vs IG (8-1)
