League of Legends bookmakers have Dplus KIA priced as 1.16 favourites to defeat FearX, who enter the match as 4.50 underdogs. Considering both teams are 3-5, it might not make sense to have one as such big favourites; however, Dplus KIA have looked better recently.

  • Dplus KIA recently broke their four-game losing streak
  • FearX are on a three-game losing streak
  • Dplus KIA are given a 86.2% implied probability of winning the series 

Head to Head


FearX and Dplus KIA have yet to meet this season.

Dplus KIA Form


Dplus KIA are 3-5 after four weeks of LCK 2024 Spring. They've so far lost against KT Rolster, Gen.G, Kwangdong Freecs, Hanwha Life Esports, and T1 and defeated DRX, OKSavingsBank BRION, and Nongshim RedForce.

Those results don't prove much as Dplus' only defeats came against stronger teams; however, even in some of their losses, Dplus KIA held on well, and they even took a map from Gen.G.

This isn't too surprising, as Dplus KIA have a decent roster which looks like it can be highly competitive. Unfortunately, Dplus have not found much traction yet, so for most of the split so far, Dplus KIA have only been a team with potential.

It is important to note that despite being 3-5, Dplus KIA have strong performance stats, especially when we talk about gold lead at 10, 15, and 20 minutes, where they rank third and fourth.

Dplus KIA Squad & Team News


No changes for Dplus KIA.

  • 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

FearX Form


FearX are holding on well so far in LCK 2024 Spring. They're 3-5 with wins against Nongshim RedForce, OKSavingsBank BRION, and DRX and five losses against KT Rolster, Hanwha Life Esports, Gen.G, Kwangdong Freecs, and T1.

FearX have essentially produced the same results as Dplus KIA ahead of their next clash – beating lesser teams and losing to stronger squads. The teams are also almost even in maps won, with FearX holding a slightly worse record (7-12 to 8-10).

Yet despite having similar results, FearX are expected to struggle on Thursday, which makes sense. FearX' performance stats aren't great and much worse than Dplus KIA's. Moreover, the eye test would prove that Dplus KIA are a stronger team, even though that might not be obvious looking just at their record.

FearX Squad & Team News


FearX have not announced any roster changes.

  • Song "Clear" Hyeon-min – top lane
  • Kim "Willer" Jeong-hyeon – jungle
  • Lee "Clozer" Ju-hyeon – mid lane
  • Park "Hena" Jeung-hwan – ADC
  • Lee "Execute" Jeong-hoon – support

Verdict

Dplus KIA and FearX have very similar records and have won the same number of games against similar-quality opponents. And yet, Dplus KIA are priced as massive favourites for this match.

This isn't too shocking as Dplus KIA have been playing better than what their record might suggest. But even if we take into account Dplus' stronger showings, it's fair to question whether they should be priced as 1.16 favourites.

Dplus KIA should win, but we've seen some good things from FearX recently, and at the current LoL esports betting odds, I would prefer FearX with a map handicap. Dplus KIA, while stronger, are too pricey.
