Top Esports vs. Suning – Sunday, October 25, 2020

The second semifinal of the 2020 LoL Worlds Main Event features the two Chinese teams left in the competition. Top Esports barely made it after a tough quarterfinal versus Fnatic, while Suning stunned JD Gaming to get here.

It’s interesting to see if the underdog can surprise another huge favorite in the next stage. I share my expectations in Top Esports vs. Suning betting preview. The post includes the latest odds and lines, more on both sides and what they’ve done so far, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Top Esports Performance and Analysis

There’s little doubt that Top Esports entered the 2020 LoL Worlds as a favorite for the crown. The best LPL team showed why clearly in the group stages, winning five games and losing only once in a meaningless clash against FlyQuest.

That was more than enough for the first place in the group and a match against Fnatic in the quarterfinals. I must admit that I expected a smooth victory, but the Europeans pushed Top Esports to the limit and the favorite barely won by 3-2 after a reverse sweep.

There are several ways to look at this, but I believe that it was related to all the hype around Top Esports. The team just won the LPL and the Worlds are in China, so the pressure to perform is enormous.

The players needed a kick to wake them up and that’s exactly what happened against Fnatic. I believe we should see the best from Top Esports from now on which is bad news for the other squads left in the Worlds.

Suning Performance and Analysis

I love what Sunning has shown us so far in the Worlds 2020. The team won a tough group that included G2 Esports and Team Liquid, beating the Europeans twice in the process. Even when the squad went 1-0 down against JD Gaming in the quarterfinals, it didn’t affect the players’ belief they can make it.

Suning has been on another level when it comes to objectives, team fighting, and map control which is the main reason why the team has gotten that far in the tournament. The Chinse squad is probably the best example of a whole that’s greater than the sum of its part.

Don’t get me wrong, all Suning members are also exceptional mechanically, but it’s their ability to work together that gets the job done.

Top Esports vs. Suning Pick

This is the ultimate showdown between talent and team spirit. Top Esports destroyed Suning in the LPL 2020 Summer Playoffs not so long ago, but I believe it will be much harder for the favorite this time around. I expect to see at least four games in this match, so getting +163 for over 4.5 makes a lot of sense.

Pick
  • Over 4.5
    +163
