League of Legends bookmakers have Top Esports priced as 1.20 favourites to defeat Invictus Gaming, who are 4.33 underdogs. Even though TES lost their last series, this price doesn't sound too wrong considering how dominant Top Esports have been this split.

  • Top Esports have lost just two series this split
  • Invictus Gaming are 6-2
  • IG have exceeded expectations

Head to Head


Invictus Gaming and Top Esports have yet to meet this split.

Top Esports Form


Top Esports have been one of the most dominant teams of the LPL 2024 Spring. Since they lost their opening match of the split against Bilibili Gaming, Top Esports have won five straight games and were only recently stopped by FunPlus Phoenix.

Over the five games, Top Esports stomped anyone in their path, and while losing to FPX does raise some alarms, it doesn't take away from the fact that TES are in excellent form.

The big reason why FunPlus Phoenix managed to defeat Top Esports is their strong early game, which is the only way to match TES, who have been running over any team that fails to do much pre-20 minutes. So, when you ask yourself whether any team has a chance to defeat TES, it mostly comes down to their early-game strength.

Top Esports Squad & Team News


No changes for Top Esports.

  • Bai "369" Jia-Hao – top lane
  • Gao "Tian" Tian-Liang – jungle
  • Lin "Creme" Jian – mid lane
  • Yu "JackeyLove" Wen-Bo – ADC 
  • Tian "Meiko" Ye – support

Invictus Gaming Form


Invictus Gaming are 6-2 so far in this split, which is much better than what anyone expected of them. They have won a few big games but also looked somewhat shaky in some of their wins.

On Monday, IG edged past LGD Gaming, and three days prior lost to Team WE, which isn't the most convincing pair of games. However, while Invictus Gaming have shown some signs of life, their chance to defeat Top Esports will largely come down to their early game, which isn't that great.

IG rank among the bottom ten teams in early-game stats, which is a huge problem, especially for this match. And while Invictus Gaming look good in the mid-late game with strong macro, if they fall behind against Top Esports, they'll struggle to get back into the game.

Invictus Gaming Squad & Team News


No announced roster changes.

  • Chau "YSKM" Shu Tak – top lane
  • Lu "Leyan" Jue – jungle
  • Yuan "Cryin" Cheng-Wei – mid lane
  • An "Ahn" Shan-Ye – ADC
  • Zhang "Wink" Rui – support

Verdict

Stylistically, this is a great game for Top Esports, knowing that Invictus Gaming's early game isn't that strong. TES have looked incredible against any team that failed to match their early game and somewhat shaky against those who did – including FPX.

So, while Top Esports are far from a perfect team, their biggest strength is also Invictus Gaming's biggest weakness. Barring any surprises, Top Esports should win without any issues.
