LGD Gaming and Top Esports will lock horns on Monday, March 4, in the sixth week of the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) 2024 Spring. The two teams have yet to meet this season, but according to the LoL esports betting odds, Top Esports should come out ahead without any issues.

League of Legends betting sites have Top Esports priced as 1.08 favourites and LGD Gaming as 7.00 underdogs, suggesting that this should be a quick and easy match for TES. However, while Top Esports have looked incredible this season, LGD Gaming have had their moments over the last few weeks.

  • Top Esports have lost just two series this split
  • LGD Gaming are 2-7
  • LGD Gaming have lost their last four series

Head to Head


LGD Gaming and Top Esports have yet to meet this season.

LGD Gaming Form


LGD Gaming have managed just two wins this split, which isn't great. However, their performance metrics aren't that bad, and often, we saw LGD Gaming play a good series only to end up short in the end.

Rarely have we seen LGD Gaming lose badly, suggesting they are somewhat competitive but just don't have the tools to push themselves over the finish line. More importantly, LGD are very resilient in the early game, and while they'll rarely gain significant leads pre-20 minutes, they also rarely carry huge deficits.

This is not to be ignored, as being able to hold their own in the early game is the main way to remain competitive against TES – who have proven to be a very explosive team. But will that be enough for LGD Gaming to cook up an upset?

Top Esports Form


Top Esports have looked incredible for most of the split, running over any LoL team they have faced. The main reason why TES have been so successful is their strong early game, where thy gain substantial leads and showball to a victory.

This approach doesn't work all the time, especially when faced with other capable early-game teams. That was noticeable at the start of LPL 2024 Spring Week 5, when Top Esports lost against FunPlus Phoenix, and a few days later when TES dropped a map against Invictus Gaming.

Those two results shouldn't prove that Top Esports are weak, but as shown, they are capable of dropping games against teams that can match them early.

No changes for Top Esports.

Verdict

Top Esports are objectively a better team than LGD Gaming and will end the season much higher. However, knowing that LGD Gaming can hold their own in the early game, seeing them priced as 7.00 seems a bit too cheap.

There's no question that this is Top Esports' game to lose, but considering they have dropped maps against FPX and Invictus Gaming, it's fair to believe the same can happen here. LGD don't hold as great of a record as FPX or Invictus Gaming, but the eye test proves that they're playing at about the same level.
