V5 vs FPX

LPL playoffs are upon us, meaning these slates will be a best-of-5 instead of the normal best-of-3 like the regular season. FunPlus Phoenix come into this series as the favorites, but the regular season stats and recent form tell a different story. Victory 5 have the advantage in multiple gold stats this season over FPX such as gold per minute, gold difference per minute and gold difference at 15 minutes which paints the story of V5 being the better early game team in this series. V5 also have a better dragon percentage with 56 compared to the 54 percent of FPX. With the price on V5 being so low on this slate, I also see them being in most of the lineups regardless of what contest you have entered. SamD and Mole both share the first spot in kills with 130 while the jungler Weiwei isn't far behind with 124 kills this split. I foresee this being a close series but V5 have been the more consistent team and in a best-of-5 situation, that can be the edge V5 needs to beat FPX.

Prediction to Win: V5 3-1

V5 Players to Target: Weiwei ($6,200), Mole ($6,800), SamD ($7,000)
