After three days of League of Legends Worlds 2021, Day 4 will determine the two teams in Group A which will advance to the Knockout Stage. Let’s see what went down so far and what we can expect going into this Friday. Who do you think will go through between DK, FPX, RGE and C9?
LoL Worlds 2021 – Group A Rankings
- DAMWON Kia 3-0
- FunPlusPhoenix 2-1
- Rogue 1-2
- Cloud9 0-3
So far, we saw a dominating DAMWON Kia, who also demolished the LPL seed FunPlusPhoenix. In return, FPX was victorious against the two western teams, as they are looking to bounce back against DK in their rematch.
As for NA and EU, things aren’t going great. Rogue did win against Cloud9, but they struggled against the Asian teams. It was to be expected, though. RGE did have some shining moments in the series against DK: we hope that they can snatch a win off in the second round-robin.
Cloud9, unfortunately, ended up in one of the worst groups possible. After their play-ins performance, however, it was clear that C9 still has a lot to work on. They might take a win here and there, but considering they are already 0-3, the chances left are very slim.
Worlds 2021 Group A Predictions
With that being said we expect teams to have similar outcomes to the ones in the first three days. DK and FPX are unquestionably the favorites to advance and they will very likely do. For DK, only one win is needed to guarantee them a seed in the next stage. FPX, on the other hand, shouldn’t have any problems beating the western teams.
As a result, the matches with the best LoL Worlds betting odds are between the two Asian teams and the two western ones. These will be the two crucial matches that will define the group either way.
FPX vs DK – 15/10 – 13:00 CET
FPX must give their very best if they want to have a chance for the number one spot in Group A. Their recent performances have not been as convincing as the ones during Summer, but FPX themselves claimed that they will go back to their comfort playstyle.
DK’s Worlds run so far has been flawless, and we’re slowly seeing glimpses of last year’s Worlds. Everyone in the team, including the most criticized players Jang “Ghost” Yong-jun and Cho “BeryL” Geon-hee, have been performing really well.
Nevertheless, the match will be a lot closer than their opener on Day 1. It is still slightly DK favored, and we think that they will go 6-0 in their group. Betting on a DK win will net you a 1.5x return (odds are courtesy of GG.bet)
Other things worth betting on are Rift Herald for DK (1.73x) and First Drake for FPX (2.38x). DK will likely play mid-top centric and capturing the neutral objective shouldn’t be too much of a hassle. As a consequence, FPX might find an opportunity to seize the dragon. Anyway, make sure to watch the draft first, as it will help you understand what the two teams want to achieve.
ROGUE vs CLOUD9 – 15/10 – 14:00 CET
Even though both teams likely won’t make it out of groups, the battle between the western teams will determine which region is stronger overall.
Coming into this match, Rogue looks like the stronger team. Their aggression in the first stages of the game is really good and North American teams might not have such a clean early game. Based on how RGE has been playing, they are going to mimic DK’s playstyle, playing around mid-top early and looking to capture the Rift Herald. (1.88x)
Game duration is something worth looking at: an over 33.5-minute will double your LoL betting earnings (2.1x). Consider also going for under 26.5 kills, as it will make you a 1.94x return on your investment.
