JD Gaming vs FunPlus Phoenix Predictions


JD Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix will clash on Monday, June 24, in the fourth week of League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2024 Summer Placements. The two teams already met last week when JD Gaming won, and according to the esports betting odds, they should win again.

The best League of Legends bookmakers have JD Gaming priced as 1.13 favourites, whereas FunPlus Phoenix are heavy 5.00 underdogs with Stake. Since JD Gaming are one of the league's strongest teams, this offer shouldn't surprise no one.

  • JD Gaming have yet to lose a game in LPL 2024 Summer Placements
  • FunPlus Phoenix are in a tight race with EDward Gaming
  • JD Gaming should win again

Head to Head


JD Gaming last met with FunPlus Phoenix in the second week of LPL 2024 Summer Placements, when JD Gaming won convincingly.

  • JD Gaming 2-0 FunPlus Phoenix – June 15, 2024

JD Gaming Form


JD Gaming were one of the elite teams in the LPL 2024 Spring and they've not looked any worse early into the summer split. They're 4-0 so far in LPL 2024 Summer Placements, having beaten EDward Gaming (2-0), FunPlus Phoenix (2-0), and ThunderTalk Gaming (2-0, 2-1).

JD Gaming have only dropped one map, and even that was in the previous round when they were trying out new things, so that dropped map doesn't prove anything. JD Gaming have already secured a top-two finish in the group stage, so perhaps they don't care too much about winning their next games. 

Yet that's a bad excuse to doubt them.

No announced changes for JD Gaming.

  • Li "Flandre" Xuan-Jun – top lane
  • Seo "Kanavi" Jin-hyeok – jungle
  • Zeng "Yagao" Qi – mid lane
  • Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk – ADC
  • Lou "MISSING" Yun-Feng -support

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix looked excellent in the LPL 2024 Spring, but they have shown no improvement so far in the summer split. Maybe all other LoL esports teams are catching up, but it seems like we've seen less from FunPlus Phoenix so this split.

That doesn't mean that FunPlus Phoenix are in terrible shape. They are 2-2, which puts them in a good spot, but a lot will come down to how well they do against ThunderTalk Gaming in the final match, as it's highly unlikely FunPlus Phoenix can defeat JD Gaming.

FPX's win against EDward Gaming is impressive, but EDG looked terrible on the day, so it doesn't prove much. In other words, FunPlus Phoenix didn't win that game as much as EDward Gaming lost it.

No changes for FunPlus Phoenix.

  • Ping "Xiaolaohu" Xiao-Hu – top lane
  • Cai "milkyway" Zi-Jun – jungle
  • Yang "Care" Jie – mid lane
  • Seo "Deokdam" Dae-gil – ADC
  • Kim "Life" Jeong-min – support

Verdict

So early into the season, it's usually smart to look for opportunities to bet against strong favourites, especially in positions like here, where JD Gaming don't necessarily need to win the match to advance.
 
Still, it's very hard to doubt JD Gaming. They're one of the top three teams in the league, and while FunPlus Phoenix looked like the fourth-best team in spring, they've not shown the same level of play in LPL 2024 Summer Placements.

Had this match been played in the spring split, FunPlus Phoenix would have been an excellent bet. Based on what they've shown, not so much.
