V5 vs. JDG
Both teams here in our first LPL match are motivated to win since moving up in the rankings will be needed in the tight race for playoffs. Victory 5 have not looked good in the last few weeks after having a very good start to the split. V5 will be sticking with Y4 in the bot lane after the bad performance from Samd in the first game of their last series. JD Gaming have been on an absolute, totaling 11 wins thus far. With the momentum JDG is on and the uncertainty that V5 has with their bot lane, I like JDG to sweep this series and keep their top spot in the LPL.
Prediction to Win: JDG 2-0
JDG Players to Target: Everyone on JDG

Our first LCK series Sunday is the most lopsided match on the slate where DAMWON Gaming will have an easy path to victory just on skill alone in each lane. There isn't much hope or motivation for Hanwha Life to come out and get a win with them being out of the playoff race currently sitting at (1-11) this split. The decision here would be if DWG are worth the salary per points they can get on this slate with
