League of Legends bookmakers have Top Esports priced as 1.53 favourites to defeat JD Gaming, who enter the match as 2.37 underdogs. Considering Top Esports beat JD Gaming last week, this sounds like a fair offer.

  • Top Esport swept JD Gaming last week
  • JD Gaming have recently edged past Ninjas in Pyjamas
  • The third meeting between JD Gaming and Top Esports of the season

Head to Head


Top Esports and JD Gaming have met twice this season, once during the regular season and once in the playoffs.

  • JD Gaming 2-1 Top Esports – March 14, 2024
  • Top Esports 3-0 JD Gaming – April 7, 2024

Top Esports Form


Top Esports placed second in the LPL 2024 Spring regular season and kept their momentum going into the playoffs, where they've so far beaten JD Gaming and narrowly lost to Bilibili Gaming in the upper bracket semifinals.

A lot of Top Esports' success this season was due to their potent early game, where they usually get ahead and use the momentum to run their opponents over. Last round, they even managed to use this strategy efficiently against BIiibili Gaming, which only goes to show just how strong Top Esports are.

In the same fashion Top Esports defeated JD Gaming the last time these two teams met. However, it's important to note that that series was very close, and the final score (3-0 for Top Esports) doesn't show the full picture.

Top Esports Squad & Team News


No roster 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

JD Gaming Form


JD Gaming were one of the strongest teams during the LPL 2024 Spring regular season, but their road so far in the playoffs has been far less convincing. In the third round, they swept Weibo Gaming, and while JD Gaming played a close game with Top Esports, they lost 0-3.

In the loser's bracket, JD Gaming managed to bounce back by beating Ninjas in Pyjamas, however, they didn't perform even remotely well. They choked on map three despite holding a sizeable lead, and game five could've gone either way.

A win is still a win, but JD Gaming performed very sloppy. Despite that, JD Gaming still won, but had they faced Top Esports or BIlibili Gaming and played like that, JD Gaming would've lost.

No 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

Verdict

By all metrics, Top Esports and JD Gaming are still two of the best teams in the LPL. However, after what JD Gaming showed in the previous round, it's tough to say they're equal to Top Esports.

That's not necessarily because Top Esports defeated JD Gaming last time out. But mainly because JD Gaming have been increasingly sloppy as the playoffs progressed. It's possible they had a bad day, but maybe that's just a bad excuse for JDG's concerning performances.
