Home I eSports Tips I Afreeca Freecs vs KT Rolster
We are back with another betting preview of two upcoming matches of the Korean LCK on Sunday. Afreeeca Freecs vs KT Rolster is the first and Jin Air Green Wings vs ROX Tigers the second match on Sunday.
KT Rolster is a Korean professional gaming organization based in South Korea. They qualified for S5 Worlds after defeating Jin Air in the regional finals, where they lost to KOO Tigers in the quarterfinals. Now they have improved the roster by signing Kyungho “Smeb” Song, Heo “PawN” Won-seok, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu, and Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong for the upcoming season.
KT Rolster is at 3rd place in their group. However, in the last 5 matches, they had 2 losses. The 3 wins were against the teams placed lower than Afreeca Freecs.
KT has a lot of momentum at their back, having only lost to SKT and ROX Tigers earlier this split. Unlike other top tier teams like SKT and Jin Air, KT has demonstrated a very high degree of consistency. They excel at taking early game objectives and tower trade-offs while excelling through to the late game.
Afreeca Freecs was announced in Dec 2015 as the new name of Rebels Anarchy, with streaming platform Afreeca as their title sponsor. They managed to defeat SKT several times in LCK but failed to qualify for Worlds after losing the regional qualifier. They updated their roster with Jang “MaRin”Gyeong-Hwan , Lee “Kuro” Seo-haeng, and Lee “Spirit” Da-yun for the new season.
Freecs won all their last 3 matches, and that includes a match against the amazing SKT T1, where they were underdogs at 3.50 odds and won 2-0. They are the team with great potential. In last 12 matches, they are 7-5. Some could say that is nothing special but all these 5 losses were decided in game 3.
Afreeca Freecs are in a good position to catch the LCK playoffs but JAG is still pretty close. They need a victory to make sure that JAG doesn’t get any crazy ideas about contesting their place in the playoffs.
Afreeca has had a pretty decent run for a mid-tier team. Unlike KT Rolster who are very well rounded in every lane, Afreeca is more dependent on their ADC Kwon “Sangyoon” Sang-yoon as a carry. Sangyoon excels at team fighting mechanics and keeping himself alive.
All-in-all KT Rolster significantly outclasses Afreeca. They should use their experience, game knowledge, and split-second calls to push forth an easy victory. It is very unlikely that Afreeca will come out ahead in this best-of-three.
Afreeca Freecs is the most volatile team in LCK. This week they beat SK Telecom 1, but then they could lose against Team Ever8 Winners. It is hard to say how they will perform in this match but there is a lot at stake. If they lose a single game, they will give a chance to the Jin Air Green Wings to make a comeback.
2-1 KT Rolster
Current odds at 10bet: KT Rolster 1.57 – 2.30 Afreeca Freecs
Sixth place faces seventh in the League of Legends Korea Summer split as last year’s split winners ROX Tigers look to put dismal form behind them. The match has much riding on it as Jin Air and ROX trail fifth place side, Afreeca Freecs, by one and two points respectively in the race for the summer play offs. Both sides are evenly matched and the prediction is for a close encounter.
Jin Air Green Wings is a mediocre team in the LCK. They are well-known for the tactics of stalling for late game team fights. They have introduced some new faces into the roster for the new season.
Jin Air Green Wings is a team without any star players. So far, they didn’t really do anything to stand out from the crowd. At the moment, JAG is the sixth-placed team in LCK with a 6-7 score. They need to climb one more spot in order to catch the playoffs.
In April, Coach Chun “Sweet” Jung-hee left the side and was replaced by Lim “comet” Hye-sung . ROX Tigers is a famous Korean team in LoL competitive scene. They have participated and placed top three in numerous international tournaments over the years. They restructured team roster at the end of S6, with former AFs players.. The side to face ROX will feature ikssu, Umti, Kuzan, Teddy, and SnowFlower. The side has the ability to make a final push for the playoffs.
The Tigers enter the bout with the form on their side after back to back wins. Despite this, the prediction makes Green Wings slight favorite. The squad to face the Wings will comprise of Shy, Seonghwan, Crow, Sangyoon and KeY.
The last time the two met in the Spring Split, it was Jin Air who came out 2-0 winners. Despite this, ROX still finished ahead of their opponents in the league standings. The Green wings have gotten their act together in this split and will be out for a repeat result.
Both sides need to start stringing wins together otherwise they face being cut adrift. Each side has the potential but if the Tigers lose, then they may have just left themselves too much to do with just five matches left to play. Jin Air holds the slight advantage in the table but only by the finest of margins.
Rox Tigers came stronger than Jin Air. Moreover, they won 6 of 7 last games against Jin Air. They have a high chance to win this game and betting ratios still decent to bet on them. We will recommend betting on Rox Tigers for this series with no doubts.
2-1 Rox Tigers
Current odds on 10bet: Rox Tigers 2.15 – 1.62 Jin Air Green Wings
