DRX vs Gen.G Prediction


DRX and Gen.G will clash on Wednesday, March 20, in the final week of the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) 2024 Spring regular season. According to the esports betting odds, Gen.G are expected to win.

League of Legends bookmakers have Gen.G priced as 1.01 favourites to defeat DRX, who enter the match as 15.00 underdogs. At these numbers, Gen.G's implied probability of winning is 99%, which might seem fair considering their dominant performances so far – but it's still an absurdly high number.

  • Gen.G have lost just one series this split
  • DRX are 3-13 and guaranteed to miss the LCK 2024 Spring playoffs
  • Gen.G are expected to crush DRX

Head to Head


Gen.G and DRX last met in LCK 2024 Spring Week 5, when Gen.G won.

Gen.G 2-0 DRX – February 22, 2024

DRX Fom


DRX have won just three series this entire split and enter this match with a 3-13 record. With that, they're guaranteed to miss the LCK 2024 Spring playoffs, which also means that they don't have any pressure to perform on Wednesday, as even beating Gen.G won't matter much in the end.

This game is essentially meaningless for DRX, which has its advantages. In the previous seasons, we've seen heavy underdogs take maps or even series against heavily favoured teams just because neither side cared much about the series. This could be the case here.

Blindly following the idea that DRX might do better now that they don't need to win isn't the wisest choice, but historically, teams who have nothing left to fight for tend to do better. But will that be enough for DRX to cause an upset?

DRX Squad & Team News


No announced 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

Gen.G Form


Gen.G are 15-1, meaning they're guaranteed at least a top-two finish, and since they're two wins ahead of T1, they don't have to do much to clinch the LCK 2024 Spring regular season title.

As their record might suggest, Gen.G have been incredible this season and proved themselves as one of the top two teams in the league, so seeing them win the regular season title is more than deserved. But now we can touch on the fact that Gen.G don't have to defeat DRX, and in such games, we often see the favourites play a more relaxed game.

This has backfired numerous times before, so assuming Gen.G don't approach this game at 100% (which they likely won't), then it's more than fair to start exploring options to back the underdogs as unlikely as DRX beating Gen.G straight up might seem.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


Gen.G have not announced any changes.

  • Kim "Kiin" Gi-in – top lane
  • Kim "Canyon" Geon-bu – jungle 
  • Jeong "Chovy" Ji-hoon – mid lane 
  • Kim "Peyz" Su-hwan – ADC
  • Son "Lehends" Si-woo – support

Verdict

The whole theme of this preview was to talk about the fact that DRX nor Gen.G have to win the game. DRX can approach this series without any pressure as winning or losing doesn't change anything, and much of the same can be said about Gen.G.

This is a spot where Gen.G will likely have a more relaxed approach to the game and play with their food, which obviously isn't optimal. DRX also have side choices for this series, which is an advantage.

As unlikely as it may seerm that DRX can defeat Gen.G, the offered betting odds make betting on the underdogs an appealing choice. This is still a complete long shot, but there are reasons behind it.
