Ultra Prime vs FunPlus Phoenix Predictions

Esports bookmakers have Ultra Prime priced as 3.50 underdogs for this match and FunPlus Phoenix as 1.28 favourites. Even though FPX have won just one more game than Ultra Prime, the latter have looked very shaky in their recent outings, which explains the offered price.

  • Ultra Prime are 0-3 with just one map won
  • FunPlus Phoenix have so far beaten just Oh My God
  • Ultra Prime are in a rough spot

Head to Head


FunPlus Phoenix and Ultra Prime have not yet met this season.

Ultra Prime Form


Ultra Prime are not looking good. They're 0-3 with defeats against Invictus Gaming, LGD Gaming, and Royal Never Give Up and a 1-6 map record. Based on those results, UP are arguably the weakest League of Legends team in the league.

After those results, it's tough to stay optimistic about Ultra Prime and their chances to do well against FunPlus Phoenix. At 3.50, UP aren't expected to win, which is fair, and even if we talk about the possibility of Ultra Prime stealing a map, it will likely come down to FunPlus Phoenix making mistakes than UP earning the map. 

Ultra Prime Squad & Team News


No changes for Ultra Prime.

  • Zhang "Decade" Hua-Xin – top lane
  • Yang "H4cker" Zhi-Hao – jungle
  • Zhang "Yuekai" Yue-Kai – mid lane
  • Chiu "Doggo" Tzu-Chuan – ADC
  • Sun "Jwei" Jun-Wei – support

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix have yet to show much this season. They're 1-2 with losses against Team WE and Anyone's Legend, while their sole victory came against Oh My God. 

In their defence, FunPlus Phoenix won a map against Team WE on Monday, so there are some things to feel excited about. But much like many other bottom-seven teams, FPX still have a lot more to show.

Thankfully, they'll face the current worst-performing team in the league on Friday, which should earn them an easy win and some momentum going forward.

FunPlus Phoenix Squad & Team News


FunPlus Phoenix have not announced any changes.

  • 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

This is a match between two mid-bottom table teams, which makes backing Ultra Prime to win a map an inviting option. However, even though FPX are capable of dropping a map, Ultra Prime have yet to show anything that would suggest they can actually win a map without FunPlus Phoenix blundering.

FPX aren't a perfect team, and there's a chance they stumble on Friday. But that's one big what-if and not a very good reason to bet against them.
