PSG Talon vs. DAMWON Gaming – Friday, October 9, 2020

| October 8, 2020 2:35 am PDT

The best and the worst team in Group B of the Lol Worlds 2020 Main Event open the schedule on Friday. Another win for DAMWON Gaming would pretty much guarantee a spot in the playoffs, while PSG Talon desperately needs a victory to stay alive in the tournament.

The underdog was destroyed in the opening clash and it’s hard to expect anything different in the second encounter on Friday. The team did find some early success, though, so there might be a chance.

I share my thoughts on the upcoming match in this PSG Talon vs. DAMWON Gaming betting preview that includes the latest odds, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

The PSG Talon vs. DAMWON Gaming odds of the top LoL betting sides show us that the Koreans are expected to crush the opposition in the second match too and that’s only natural based on both sides’ performance up to this point of the 2020 Worlds.

PSG Talon Analysis

The Play-In suggested that PSG Talon might be competitive in the LoL Worlds Main Event, but that hasn’t been the case so far. The team lost all three matches and another defeat today is most likely going to send the side packing.

I believe that the last game against DAMWON showed us where the problems lie. PSG Talon was able to find several early kills and even build a small advantage. However, that didn’t lead to any major objectives and the opponent worked better with the map as you can see from the highlights below.

PSG has to change its strategy and try to find better spots to attack the drakes or get towers. Getting kills without using them to your advantage simply isn’t good enough against such a strong squad.

DAMWON Gaming Analysis

We all knew that DAMWON Gaming is one of the favorites for the championship and the first three games confirmed the expectations. The squad has been awesome and despite some early struggles against PSG, it has been an easy ride so far.

The ability to farm well and take objectives at every opportunity has made a huge difference. Once the team has the lead, it’s pretty much game over. DAMWON simply knows how and where to push.

On top of that, Nuguri has been excellent in flanking the opposition in late team fights which has been instrumental to DAMWON’s success.

Prediction and Betting Pick

I don’t think that PSG Talon has a shot at winning this match, but the line of +11.5 kills looks weird. DAMWON’s style doesn’t rely too much on finding kills, so the score in two of their opening three games wasn’t that big.

That’s why I believe that backing the underdog to stay within that line is the best betting pick for the upcoming clash.
