LCK Week 6: Days 1 & 2 predictions
Sandbox Gaming vs. Afreeca Freecs
Sandbox Gaming have surprised many with their continued strong performance despite only entering the LCK this year with their formation in the later half of December 2018. While Sandbox Gaming did drop a match against the Afreeca Freecs last week, they remain the stronger team, currently ranking amongst the top teams in the LCK. That said, if Afreeca manage to pull an early lead as they did recently, they stand a decent chance to take down Sandbox once again.
Prediction: Sandbox Gaming 60% l Afreeca Freecs 40%
Damwon Gaming vs. Jin Air Green Wings
Damwon are on fire, now on a four win streak propelling their once shaky standing to a solid position amongst the other mid-tier teams. Jin Air Green Wings on the other hand are gone downhill since day one, currently on the bottom of the LCK ladder without a single win to their name. Damwon should easily be able to overwhelm Jin Air.
Predictions: Damwon Gaming 82% l Jin Air Green Wings 18%
Kingzone DragonX vs. Hanwha Life Esports
Both Kingzone and Hanwha are currently tied, 6-4. Their last bout saw Hanwha Life Esports defeat Kingzone 2-0, even while playing from behind in their second game. That said, Kingzone are looking very good, managing to take down Sandbox Gaming last week.
Prediction: Kingzone DragonX 55% l Hanwha Life Esports 45%
SK Telecom T1 vs. Gen G
SKT are performing well this year, but they still have a long way to go before returning to the team’s former glory days. Their loss to Damwon gaming last week highlights some instances of the team’s poor decision making, especially when baron had been stolen leading to their eventual downfall in game 3. Gen.G are not fairing very well either, placing amongst the lower tier teams with a 3-7 run in the first half of the split.
Prediction: SK Telecom T1 65% l Gen G 35%
