Gen.G vs DRX Predictions


Gen.G and DRX will meet on Thursday, February 22, in the fifth week of the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) 2024 Spring. Unsurprisingly, Gen.G are expected to win easily, and there are many reasons to believe that.

League of Legends bookmakers have Gen.G priced as 1.02 favourites to defeat DRX, who are 11.00 underdogs for the upcoming series. Considering this is a clash between one of the league's strongest and weakest teams, that offer makes a lot of sense.

  • Gen.G have lost just one series so far
  • DRX have won just one series this split
  • It should be a very straightforward win for Gen.G

Head to Head


Gen.G and DRX have yet to meet this season.

Gen.G Form


Gen.G enter this match with a 7-1 record, having suffered just one loss so far in this League of Legends season. Their sole loss came straight after the New Year break when Gen.G lost against KT Rolster – and as concerning as that may sound, the break played a role in it.

A few days after that loss, Gen.G got back on track with a dominant 2-0 sweep of Hanwha Life Esports, proving that losing to KT was indeed nothing more than a fluke. Admittedly, that's easy to believe, knowing that Gen.G have been playing like one of the strongest LoL esports teams in the world, and they have stats to back those claims up.

  • Kim "Peyz" Su-hwan – ADC

DRX Form


DRX enter their first match of LCK 2024 Spring Week 5 with a 1-7 record. Their only victory of the split happened in the second week, when DRX defeated OKSavingsBank BRION, meaning DRX beat the only other team in LCK with a worse record than them.

In all seven other series, DRX looked completely toothless, having managed to win just four maps (out of 19) total, which includes map wins against FearX and KT Rolster.

DRX showed some good things, so it's fair to say that they're stronger than BRION and even Nongshim RedForce. However, even though DRX are the best of the bottom LoL teams in the LCK, there's still a huge gap between the bottom squads and the rest.

  • Son "Pleata" Min-woo – support

Verdict

Gen.G are priced as 1.02 favourites to defeat DRX, which gives them a 98% implied probability of winning the series. This is a huge number, but a fair one, knowing that this is, at the end of the day, a clash between LCK title contenders and one of the bottom three teams.

At this price, backing Gen.G doesn't make much sense, and we're not getting a very good offer on the map handicap (1.22) either. However, knowing how efficient Gen.G are in closing out games, we can expect a faster game, which is why under 21.5 kills for the first map looks like an obvious choice.

Gen.G have side selection.
