JD Gaming vs FunPlus Phoenix Predictions


JD Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix will clash on Wednesday, June 26, in the third week of VALORANT Champions Tour (VCT) 2024: China Stage 2. It'll mark their first meeting of the season, and according to the esports betting odds, FunPlus Phoenix should win.

Valorant bookmakers have FunPlus Phoenix priced as 1.22 favourites and JD Gaming as 3.80 outsiders to win on Wednesday. As one of the league's strongest teams, FPX should be expected to do well, especially against a squad who have managed just two wins this season.

  • JD Gaming are 2-4
  • FunPlus Phoenix lost their last match
  • It should be a very one-sided match

Head to Head


JD Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix have yet to meet this season.

JD Gaming Form


JD Gaming are one of the worst Valorant esports teams from VCT China. They started the season with a seventh-ninth-place finish in VCT 2024: China Kickoff and ended Stage 1 in 11th place, managing just one victory from five series played.

Overall, JD Gaming haven't shown much so far, but they have won at least one map in four of the five losses they've suffered this season. Moreover, JD Gaming have won their last two games, including one against Wolves in the final round of Stage 1 and Titan Esports Club, who JD Gaming swept in the first week of VCT 2024: China Stage 2.

Those results don't necessarily prove much. Even though JD Gaming performed well against their last two opponents, beating Wolves and Titan Esports Club or beating FunPlus Phoenix are two entirely different things.

FunPlus Phoenix Form


FunPlus Phoenix enter their second match of VCT 2024: China Stage 2 as the current top team in the region. They've won five of six games played across the two stages, and their only defeat happened last week when FPX lost to Trace Esports (1-2).

As the second-most successful team in the region, behind EDward Gaming, FunPlus Phoenix have a solid record on their resume, with two silver medals from the Kickoff tournament and Stage 1. Unfortunately, they have not accomplished much on the international stage - with a seventh-eighth and ninth-tenth-place finish in Madrid and Shanghai.

Verdict

FunPlus Phoenix didn't look good on their trips to Madrid and Shanghai, but they were the clear second-best team in VCT 2024: China Kickoff and Stage 1 and were, for the most part, unstoppable when faced with any team besides EDward Gaming.

But it's fair to question whether they deserve to be priced as 1.22 favourites for this match. Despite FunPlus Phoenix's undeniable quality, they've regularly dropped maps against weaker opponents, and based on their performance last week, there's a good chance it might happen again.

Expecting JD Gaming to upset is a bit too optimistic, but they should be good to steal one map from the unconvincing FPX.
