DRX vs. SP
The slate kicks off with a fairly lopsided matchup in the LCK, as DragonX take on bottom dwellers SeolHaeOne Prince. DragonX should provide a one-sided sweep, but there could be some concern about them out-scoring similarly priced teams in FPX and Afreeca especially. I admit that for me it's a minor concern, as SP are averaging the most deaths per game in the LCK so far this split, including over 18 per game in losses. DragonX should have no issue and I think every member save for Doran is worth using in lineups, with majority focus on Deft and Chovy as the carries of the team.
Prediction: DRX 2-0
DRX Players to Target: Deft ($8,000), Chovy ($7,600), Pyosik ($7,200), Keria ($5,800)
ES vs. V5
This should be a pretty fun series as Victory5 and Estar have been two of the more entertaining teams this split outside of the truly elite teams in the LPL. Victory5 is reborn after their horrendous Spring Split and are actually coming into this match as slight favorites. While Estar isn't the same lethal team they were in Spring Split, I still like them and will lean in their direction in this matchup. I do think both teams are in play here though
