LGD Gaming vs. Gen.G – Saturday, October 10, 2020
There’s little doubt that the clash between LGD Gaming and Gen.G is one of the most anticipated matches on the LoL Worlds 2020 schedule on Saturday. Both Asian giants have two wins and one defeat up to this point, so another victory will be crucial for their ambitions to progress.
It should be an exciting encounter and I share my thoughts on both sides in this LGD Gaming vs. Gen.G betting preview. It also includes the latest odds and lines, my prediction, and a free betting pick for the upcoming clash.
LGD Gaming vs. Gen.G Odds
The LGD Gaming vs. Gen.G odds of the top esports betting sites online favor the South Korean side and that’s to be expected after what we saw so far in the competition. And yet, the LPL representative has been improving steadily since the Play-In and have excellent mechanical skills.
LGD Gaming Performance and Analysis
I don’t think that many expected to see LDG Gaming in contention for a spot in the knockouts after the abysmal performance in the LoL Worlds Play-In. The Chinese squad has been so much better in the Main Event and can actually fight for the top spot in the group.
It all started with a close clash against Gen.G that has a good claim to be the best match of the tournament so far. It went down to the very late game when a team fight around the dragon brought the Koreans a priceless victory.
LGD managed to bounce back with two wins against Fnatic and TSM, though, and another victory today could be enough to secure a spot in the playoffs and even open the door to the top seed.
Gen.G Team Performance and Analysis
I have high expectations for Gen.G in the 2020 Worlds Main Event and I was slightly surprised by the defeat against Fnatic. If you add the close win over LGD, the team hasn’t been too convincing so far in the tournament.
The good news is that Gen.G still has two wins and only one defeat, so the team’s fate doesn’t depend on the other results. Two or three victories by the end of the group stage should be enough to secure the top spot.
I believe that today’s clash against LGD will answer plenty of questions. The Chinese side is excellent mechanically and Gen.G has to play close to its best to win.
LGD Gaming vs. Gen.G Pick
I believe that Saturday’s clash between Gen.G and LGD Gaming will once again be close. I don’t see how any of the teams can finish this one early and there should be plenty of team fights, so going for the over 26.5 kills outcome makes the most sense.
