DraftKings LoL: Friday Worlds (Early) Breakdown

DraftKings LoL: Friday Worlds (Early) Breakdown

This article is part of our DraftKings LoL series.

GAMES (EDT)

4:00 a.m: ITZ vs. MAD Lions

4:50 a.m: PSG Talon vs. Rainbow7

ITZ vs. MAD

We are back with with the biggest tournament of the year, and this is going to be very exciting, especially for those who may have picked up League of Legends over the past few months. Worlds is probably the second-best event after the World Cup. Unfortunately, we have to go through play-ins before we get into the meat of the tournament, with the first game between INTZ from Brazil and MAD Lions from Europe. We know how Brazil teams love to play: they are aggressive and try to get early leads and win through brute force. This matchup is going to be tough for INTZ, as they are facing a strong team in MAD Lions, who were dominating the early parts of Europe. MAD are able to play through top side as well as bot, and if this meta shifts towards bot lane then I expect this to be a blowout, as Kaiser was one of the top performers on this team. MAD were good at mitigating early game pressure to scale up and take over in the mid-game, as their gold difference at 15 in EU was in the top-three. As long as MAD play their game, they can take this with ease.

Prediction: MAD Win

MAD Players to Target: Everyone

PSG vs. R7

The second matchup is between two teams that many people don't recognize: Rainbow7 from Latin America and PSG
