DraftKings & FanDuel LoL DFS Rundown (MSI) – May 10, 2022

Saigon Buffalo (SGB) vs. T1 Esports (T1) (4:00 AM EST) (-1950 T1)

After finishing second in the VCS playoffs just short of first place SGB will now face off with LCK ’22 Playoffs champs T1 to kick off the slate. T1 may have the advantage here for early momentum with a 71.4% first-blood rate compared to SGB’s 71.4%. SGB also finished with the worst middle lane in their group during the playoffs with a -11.8 rating which may be the first this T1 tries to capitalize on. This bodes well for Faker to have a good performance in mid-lane for T1 and the fact he’s fourth in kill-participation should worry SGB even more. Gumyausi also has been the most consistent with an 11.3 KDA in bot-lane in which no player of SGB is close to. Unfortunately, for SGB their bot-laner (attack damage carry) in Shogun currently leads the way in damage at 29.4% but if if he’s countered by Gumyausi with their mid-lane potentially struggling SGB may be in for a long game.

Team Aze (AZE) vs. DetonatioN FM (DFM) (5:00 AM EST) (-194 DFM)

Both teams in this matchup are coming off playoff winning finals and objective should play a crucial part in this series. Due to a high cs differential (+27.4) DFM should have more time to acquire the objective compared to AZE’s +10.7 cs differential. Also, the fact the majority of the players on DFM having KDA’s close to double-digits should increase the chances of them being more consistent in slaying. The bottle of the attack damage carries will be crucial here as well (5Kid of AZE versus Yutapon of DFM). Despite 5Kid having the edge by .1 (29.6 to 29.5) damage wise Yutapon has been more efficient as of late with an 8.8 KDA compared to 5Kid’s 5.2. That being said AZE may end up struggling in this matchup and there should be no surprise if they’re dominated here.

G2 Esports (G2) vs. ORDER (ORD) (6:00 AM EST) (-1300 G2)

The mid-laners are extremely strong for both of these teams with G2 having the slight edge of (28.6) compared to ORD’s 28.1 rate. This sets up Caps to possibly perform well and being second in damage rate (26.3%) on G2 should boost his chances of helping his team more. With G2 having a higher first-tower rate of 58.8% compared to ORD’s 48.6% they should have the edge with the objective as well. The best chance that ORD has to put up a strong fight is continuing to achieve a high cs rate like they’ve been as of late since G2 is in the negative in that regard compared to ORD’s positive rate of +21.8.

Evil Geniuses (EG) vs. G2 Esports (G2) (7:00 AM EST)

With G2 likely to come off a victory in their previous matchup they’d now face a team that’s about evenly matched with them objectively (First tower rates: 58.8% for G2, 59.2% for EG). Therefore, slaying may become even more significant in this matchup. Danny has a chance here to take advantage her due to dealing the most damage of both teams in bot-lane at 30.9%. The fights should be extremely close though because every player on G2 has a vspm (monsters/minions killed) rate all above 1 while EG has all but one in that range. That being said EG may have a chance to prevail in this match with the objective likely being in their favor.

Istanbul Wildcats (IW) vs. Royal Never Give Up (RNG) (8:00 AM EST) (-950 RNG)

Both teams are coming of playoff victories and IW may have some edge here with the jungle lane specifically with a 53.7 rate compared to RNG’s 48.3%. Ferret, the jungle main for IW also has the highest kill-participation at 70.7% of both teams which should allow him to perform well for his team even more. IW have also had more dragons per game at 3.1 compared to RNG’s 2.5 so their objective game can’t be overlooked either. Also, with Serin being the most consistent slayer out of both teams with a 10.3 KDA this may help IW get over the hump necessary to defeat RNG.

PSG Talon (PSG) vs. Red Canids (RED) (9:00 AM EST) (-310 PSG)

To conclude the slate, RED will already enter with a disadvantage objectively with a first tower rate of 43.6% versus PSG’s 71.4%. Unified also leads the way with damage at 31.7% in the attack-damage carry role (6.7 KDA) which no one of RED matches at the moment. In addition, with teammates in the mid-lane and support role (Bay/Kaiwing) slaying just as consistent as Unified with 6.8 and 6.9 KDA’s it may be difficult for RED to prevail in battles. RED’s best chances in this matchup would be to capitalize off of early momentum which seems to be their best edge with a 52% first-blood rate compared to PSG’s 41%, but if that’s not done they may end up losing here.
