League of Legends betting sites have Dplus KIA priced as 1.16 favourites to defeat DRX, who are 4.50 underdogs for the upcoming series. Considering DRX have won just one game so far, it's fair to doubt them.

  • Dplus KIA have yet to find any traction
  • DRX are playing like one of the worst teams in the league
  • Dplus KIA should win

Head to Head


Dplus KIA and DRX have yet to meet with their current rosters.

Dplus KIA Form


Dplus KIA have not looked great so far this split. They're 2-5 ahead of the final match of the LCK 2024 Spring regular season with just two wins against OKSavingsBank BRION in the first week and Nongshim RedForce in the second week of the split.

Dplus KIA have beaten only two of the weakest teams in the LCK, which doesn't look promising, and their losses against any decent squads suggest that Dplus KIA perhaps aren't that good. However, this is still a talented team which can do well – the only question is when Dplus KIA will start playing at the level we all know they can.

Dplus KIA Squad & Team News


Dplus KIA have not announced any roster changes.

  • Hwang "Kingen" Seong-hoon – top lane
  • Choi "Lucid" Yong-hyeok – jungle
  • Heo "ShowMaker" Su – mid lane
  • Kim "Aiming" Ha-ram – ADC
  • Kim "Kellin" Hyeong-gyu – support

DRX Form


DRX have won just one game this split – against OKSavingsBank BRION at the end of Week 2. They have played a couple of close games against FearX, and they even won a map against KT Rolster. Those don't prove much, but even though DRX haven't won much yet, they are arguably the best team of the bottom three.

This doesn't change the fact that DRX are one of the weakest squads in the LCK and that they've shown struggles throughout the last three weeks. Individually, they can't compare to any decent squad, and DRX don't look particularly clean as a unit, either.

Their poor early game is the most obvious weakness any capable team in the league can take advantage of, and even though Dplus are not exactly known for strong early game, they still hold the league's 5th best pre-20min numbers.

DRX Squad & Team News


No changes for DRX.

  • Kim "Rascal" Kwang-hee – top lane
  • Bae "Sponge" Young-jun – jungle
  • Song "SeTab" Kyeong-jin – mid lane
  • Park "Teddy" Jin-seong – ADC
  • Son "Pleata" Min-woo – support

Verdict

DRX are priced as 4.50 underdogs for this match for a very good reason. They might be better than BRION and Nongshim RedForce, but there's still a huge gap between the bottom three teams and the rest.

Results-wise, Dplus KIA haven't produced much more. They have one more win than DRX, which would suggest that Dplus KIA aren't that much better. But anyone who has watched Dplus' and DRX's games can confirm that there's a major quality difference between the two. 

Dplus also have side choice for this match, which only adds to their chances to sweep.
