Free League Of Legends Betting Picks 5/28 - Mid-Season Cup 2020 - T1 vs. DAMWON Gaming (DWG) Preview & Prediction

The Group A section of the tournament continues as T1 will take on DAMWON Gaming. The Mid-Season Cup 2020 is a battle between the top four teams from both the LCK (premier Korean League of Legends league) and the LPL (premier Chinese League of Legends league). The event is broken into two stages, Group Stage and Knockout Stage.

The eight participants are broken into two groups of four for the Group Stage. They then take place in a round-robin style bracket featuring six single-round matches between the four teams in one calendar day. The top two from each group will advance to a single elimination bracket for the Knockout Stage which will feature best-of-five round matches.

T1 Preview

You can't mention thoroughbred in League of Legends without mentioning T1. They are the first and only organization to win the World Championship three times and also twice consecutively. The defending LCK Spring Split champions are one of the best LoL squads in the world.

T1 has a plethora of Premier Tier championships under their belt and they capped their nice Spring Split run with a 3-0 victory over Gen.G in the finals. Teddy is not only one of the best ADCs in the world but one of the best League of Legends players in the world. He held a 7.13 KDA (Kill Death Assist Ratio) which topped the LCK during the Spring Split. Pair him with top-laner Canna who held a KDA of 6.17 and you have a dangerous team.

DAMWON Gaming (DWG) Preview

DAMWON Gaming has lost some firepower since their huge run in 2019 in which they won both a Premier Tier and Major Tier event.. They finished fourth in the LCK Spring Split. The team took an exit from the Playoffs of the split in the quarterfinals at the hands of DragonX in a 2-3 battle.

What makes DAMWON Gaming a good team is the fact that they rely heavily on teamwork to grab wins. Mid-laner ShowMaker and top-laner Nuguri are typically the players that lead the team into victory. Ghost and Nuclear have split time at the ADC position, although Ghost is arguably the better option of the two. If DAMWON has poor drafts, then it could be a long tournament for the team from the LCK.

Pick: T1 Spread/Handicap -6.5 Kills (-110 @ Bovada)

You may notice a pattern in my articles for this tournament, and that is that I am fading DAMWON Gaming heavily. They are one of the weakest teams participating in the event and will be at a disadvantage in almost all matches. T1 is one of the best League of Legends teams in the world and I don't expect them to have any problems with DAMWON Gaming in this battle. They will dominate easily in all phases, covering this kill spread in the process.
