Odds taken Feb. 2 at Bet365

T1 vs Nongshim Redforce

It will always be strange to see T1 near the bottom of the standings. They have a trophy cabinet filled with World Championships, and their mid laner will go down as one of, if not the best League of Legends players ever.

Entering Week 4 of LCK Spring, T1 sits at 2-4 and one of those wins came against the 1-5 Liiv Sandbox. Yes, T1 is all alone in 8th but they should get some credit for their losses after taking DWG Kia and Gen.G to a third game.

In Week 3, T1 mixed up their starting rotation and we’ll see if the revolving door stops spinning in Week 4. Their first opponent of the week is Nongshim RedForce who have fared slightly better thus far.

Nongshim is still a bit of an enigma, but the middle of the pack might be exactly where they belong. For the most part, they’ve beaten teams lower than them in the standings and fallen to teams higher than them. In Week 3 though, Nongshim got a bit more mysterious as they were able to 2-0 KT Rolster.

Both Nongshim and T1 will be fighting to sneak into the playoffs and right now, even though they’re underdogs in this matchup, Nongshim has a more consistent roster that is performing slightly better at the moment. This one should go to game three with Nongshim RedForce improving to 3-4.

Pick: Nongshim RedForce (+162), O 2.5 (+100)

KT Rolster vs Afreeca Freecs

What might be the most intriguing matchup of week four is between KT Rolster and Afreeca Freecs. Both teams are currently 3-3 and they’ve both got -120 odds of winning.

In week two, the Afreeca Freecs struggled immensely as they went a combined 0-4 to DWG Kia and Liiv Sandbox. The week after, the Freecs rebounded pulling off a 4-0 over T1 and Nongshim RedForce. It’s anything but consistent, which makes them a tough pick to side with.

As for KT Rolster, it was a much tougher showing for them in week three as they’re fresh off of an 0-2 against Nongshim RedForce. KT Rolster seems to share a similar consistency problem as Afreeca, as KT beat DRX 2-0 in the same week.

As of week three, there’s a bit more confidence with the Afreeca Freecs. They’ve stormed back from their 1-3 start to even their record and did so on the latest patch. Patch 11.2 did bring about some sizeable changes and based on a couple of best-of-threes, it seems that Afreeca has adjusted quicker. Another week of practice could mix that up, but based on recent performance on the new patch, Afreeca is the play here.

Pick: Afreeca Freecs (-120), O2.5 (-110)
