DraftKings & FanDuel LoL Cheat Sheet – LEC – July 31, 2020 (7/31/20)

Helping you build the best DraftKings League of Legends lineup for the 7/31/2020 eSports DFS slate

  • Friday gives us a 5 game slate with some matches that look like they could go either way.  We have one favourite sitting at -225, with the other four games with favourites less than -200, which opens up a lot of avenues when it comes to ways you can go with building line-ups.
  • G2 check in as the largest favourite on the board, despite the fact that they have a 6-7 record on the season…and going up against Vitality, who sit at 5-8, it’s a little surprising to me at this point in the Summer Season G2 continues to be checking in as one of, if not the largest favourite for most slates they are on.  They have a great long-term track record – but something is missing from how they’ve been playing during the current season, and while there is risk involved here – I think the idea of a fade or under-weight position on the key cogs for G2 is an interesting way to approach the slate on Friday.
  • Instead, I like the idea of focusing on the next two largest favourites on the board – both of whom will likely see lower ownership levels than the key players on G2.  The first team of which would be the MAD Lions, who sit as -198 favourites going up against OG.  The Lions have been great during this recent stretch, and I expect them to be able to control this match with relative ease.  They are my favourite option on the slate, and I think you’d be well served to go over-weight with exposure to them in this match.
  • The second option that I really like is the third largest favourite on the board, Excel – largely due to who they are playing, going up against the worst team in the league, FC04.  FC has been better of late, but they are still in the basement of the LEC standings, and it has served LOL DFS players well to target them by stacking opponents over the course of the summer season.  XL check in as -140 favourites for this one, but I like the idea of getting significant exposure to them, a team I haven’t recommended much of – if at all, given the plus, plus match-up that they draw on Friday’s slate.
