Anyone's Legend and Ninjas in Pyjamas will clash on Sunday, March 3, in the fifth week of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2024 Spring. It'll mark their first meeting of the season, and according to the esports betting odds, NiP should win.

League of Legends betting sites have Ninjas in Pyjamas priced as 1.36 favourites and Anyone's Legend as 3.00 underdogs. Seeing NiP priced as favourites makes sense, as they field one of the most stacked rosters in the league, but they've looked a bit shaky recently.

  • Anyone's Legend are 6-3
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas have lost just two series this split
  • NiP's macro isn't great

Head to Head


Anyone's Legend and Ninjas in Pyjamas have yet to meet this season.

Anyone's Legend Form


Anyone's Legend have managed to win six of their nine series so far this split, which is impressive even though it doesn't prove that they're one of the top teams in the league. AL tend to look a bit shaky in the early game and instead rely on strong teamfighting and scaling to gain advantages.

This isn't exactly the approach the top LoL squads have been using so far this split, but it has worked to some extent for AL, who have recently beaten Weibo Gaming. 

When betting on or against AL, we have to consider how the other team does in the early game and whether they have the tools to jump out on Anyone's Legend before the mid-late game. With Ninjas in Pyjamas, the answer is not as easy.

Anyone's Legend Squad & Team News


Anyone's Legend have not announced any changes.

  • Wang "Hery" He-Yong – top lane
  • Kim "Croco" Dong-beom – jungle
  • Cui "Shanks" Xiao-Jun – mid lane
  • Wang "Hope" Jie – ADC
  • Kim "Kael" Jin-hong – support

Ninjas in Pyjamas Form


Ninjas in Pyjamas have recently lost against FunPlus Phoenix, which isn't as surprising as it may sound. FPX are an excellent early-game team, which played a big role in their upset victory, it's not like NiP are that bad pre-20 minutes.

They rank top-four in early game metrics and tend to accumulate leads before the transition to mid-late game. Still, that doesn't necessarily guarantee them success, largely because NiP's macro is a bit shaky.

While NiP do a good job controlling neutral objectives, which is the main reason why they're 7-2, their teamfights and other elements of mid-late game still needs some work.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Squad & Team News


No changes for NiP.

  • Deng "shanji" Zi-Jian – top lane
  • Mao "Aki" An – jungle
  • Song "Rookie" Eui-jin – mid lane
  • Ying "Photic" Qi-Shen – ADC
  • Wang "Zhuo" Xu-Zhuo – support

Verdict

Ninjas in Pyjamas are priced a 1.36 favourites to defeat Anyone's Legend, which might sound right. This is a stacked team with strong early-game metrics and they do well in some areas mid-late game. But the price is too high to back the favourites.

The big question here is whether Anyone's Legend can survive the early game and not enter the mid-late game too far behind Ninjas in Pyjamas. This might be easier said than done, but it's not entirely unlikely.

NiP have looked a bit lost against weaker opponents before, so even though this is their game to lose, I prefer Anyone's Legend with a map advantage.
