SP vs. T1
We have some pretty good games on the slate Thursday and to start off the morning we have a team that gives up a lot of kills and another team that has secretly been involved in high-kill total games.
This should be an easy 2-0 for T1 in a high-pace game considering SeolHaeOne is dead last in every statistical category. This was a team last season that caught teams by surprise because of their crazy play-style, but the Summer Split is seeing teams beating them at their own game. This should be solid game in DFS to target so long as SP can keep the game somewhat close to let T1 fight back.
Prediction: T1 2-0
T1 Players to Target: Faker ($7,600), Canna ($6,800)
FPX vs. VG
People say that the LPL has been inconsistent, and it's true to an extent, but the top-tier teams are cuts above the lower-end ones. Vici Gaming has looked decent the last few games and is on a three-game streak in which each series has went three games. VG also has been lucky, looking awful in their first game every series before their opposition ultimately gifts them a win. Rogue Warriors, eStar and LNG Espors all tend to overextend in teamfights, which opens up an opportunity for even mediocre teams to punish
