Weibo Gaming vs Ultra Prime Predictions

League of Legends bookmakers have Weibo Gaming priced as 1.20 favourites to defeat Ultra Prime, who are 4.00 outsiders for the upcoming series with Stake. Even though Ultra Prime defeated Weibo Gaming in their last meeting, this price might not sound too crazy, as WBG are a far more stacked roster.

  • Weibo Gaming have managed to win just two series so far
  • Ultra Prime defeated Weibo Gaming last week
  • Weibo Gaming need this win

Head to Head


Weibo Gaming last met with Ultra Prime at the end of LPL 2024 Summer Placements Week 1, when Ultra Prime won.

  • Ultra Prime 2-1 Weibo Gaming – June 8, 2024

Weibo Gaming Form


Weibo Gaming haven't had the best start to LPL 2024 Summer Placements – at least relative to the expectations we had for them. This is a stacked roster with enough quality players to compete for the LPL title, but this won't happen, and there's one main reason for it. 

Weibo Gaming, like some other LPL LoL esports teams are very sloppy with terrible macro and are never to be trusted as big favourites. In games where Weibo Gaming face stronger teams, they'll usually do well, but we've seen far too often how Weibo Gaming crumbled against much weaker opponents.

The same thing happened last week, when Weibo Gaming lost to Ultra Prime and while it was a massive upset, it's not like it was a huge shock. 

Weibo Gaming Squad & Team News


No changes for Weibo Gaming.

  • Chen "Breathe" Chen – top lane
  • Lee "Tarzan" Seung-yong – jungle
  • Li "Xiaohu" Yuan-Hao – mid lane
  • Wang "Light" Guang-Yu – ADC
  • Liu "Crisp" Qing-Song – support

Ultra Prime Form


Ultra Prime enter the third week of LPL 2024 Summer Placements with a 2-2 record. They've so far beaten Invictus Gaming (2-1) and Weibo Gaming (2-1) and lost against Anyone's Legend (0-2) and Ninjas in Pyjamas (0-2).

Even though Ultra Prime might be one of the weakest teams in the league, they're holding on well, but it's tough to make any firm conclusions after just four series.

Still, we can safely say that Ultra Prime are objectively weaker thann Weibo Gaming and have a much lower ceiling. Yet all that might not mean much, knowing how sloppy Weibo Gaming are.

Ultra Prime have not announced any changes.

  • Yu "Qingtian" Zi-Han – top lane
  • Yang "H4cker" Zhi-Hao – jungle
  • Zhang "Yuekai" Yue-Kai – mid lane
  • Chiu "Doggo" Tzu-Chuan – ADC
  • Ying "Niket" Xin-Yuan – support

Verdict

Weibo Gaming should run over Ultra Prime. But we could've said the same in their first meeting of LPL 2024 Summer Placements when Ultra Prime won 2-1.

It wasn't so much Ultra Prime playing well as it was Weibo Gaming showing how sloppy they can be and even though there's no telling whether WBG will look stabler on Monday, we know that this team is not to be trusted as huge favourites.

As much as it's true that Weibo Gaming are a class above Ultra Prime, there's no way I'm taking their side at the current price.
