SK Telecom TV vs Gen.G
Both SKT T1 and Gen.G are absolute titans of the Korean LoL scene and this match should be a special look into their possibilities for next year.
SKT T1 and Gen.G made a swap in players with Clid from SKT going to Gen.G and Roach going to SKT T1 from Gen.G. We have seen Gen.G perform adequately in the two matches for the Elimination and Qualifying rounds of the KeSPA Cup so far but haven't seen SKT play yet due to their direct bye to the playoffs.
It will be interesting to see if SKT T1 can perform as good as they have in the past including the effectiveness of their new coach Kim. Odds currently favor Gen.G, while not much is known about SKT T1's form and cohesion as a team in this new setup. This also means you can get 2.6x odds on betting on the honeymoon stage of a new T1 roster while they still have the power of Faker in their back pocket.
On the other hand we could see another repeat of the Kespa Cup 2018 where SKT T1's new 2019 roster got knocked out by DAMWON gaming. Your call.
Boukev's best bet: SKT T1 to win vs Gen.G at 2.6x - bet now
DAMWON GAMING vs DragonX
The bot laner Deft is the only remaining player from the original Kingzone Dragon X team after their rename to DragonX for the 2020 season. DragonX are now starting with Chovy and Doran (former substitute) from Griffin giving them a very young team with an average age of just 19, with only Deft being 23 years of age.
While this new roster had no trouble beating low ranked teams Spear gaming and Chungnam in the Elimination and Qualifying rounds DAMWON gaming should be a whole different type of mountain to climb.
DAMWON have not had any roster changes for 2020 and wants to continue their upward momentum as a team. Last year showed DAMWON have the skills to play with the top teams in the world so hopefully they can keep that momentum in 2020. I for one am betting on the steady roster of DAMWON to beat the new DragonX.
Boukev's best bet: DAMWON gaming to win vs DragonX at 1.4x - bet now
