2019 League Of Legends Worlds Semi-Finals: IG Vs FPX Betting Odds And Pick
Invictus Gaming (IG) Vs. FunPlus Phoenix (FPX) Betting Odds And Prediction
Four teams are left at the League of Legends World Championships 2019. We have two Chinese, one Korean, and one European side left.
The first semifinal brings a clash between the two Chinese powerhouses, Invictus Gaming (IG) and FunPlus Phoenix (FPX).
The two teams haven’t played each other in a best-of-five this year, which makes this matchup all the more interesting:
- IG dismantled a Griffin team 3-1. They had been going through some internal turmoil and are known for being “chokers” on the big stage.
- FPX broke the hearts of European fans when they also had a 3-1 win over Fnatic, who were last year’s finalists.

Comparing IG And FPX Player Performance
Everyone expects a close match, and rightly so. Both of these teams have very strong solo laners with their bot lane able to carry at any time. However, the difference comes in the jungle role.
IG has had trouble with consistency from their jungler – Ning – throughout this tournament. FPX’s jungler Tian, however, has shown that he isn’t scared of the big stage and is ready to perform. His performance against Fnatic’s jungler Broxah in the quarters highlights the problems that IG might face against Tian.
Mid And Top Are Key For Invictus
Invictus Gaming relies on their mid, Rookie, and their top laner, TheShy, to win their lane. As well as to exert their dominance on the rest of the map.
FPX Has A Versatile Lineup
This will not be as easy against FPX’s top, Gimgoon, and their star mid laner, Doinb. Doinb’s versatile champion pool and ability to roam around the map no matter if he’s ahead or not provides a very tough scenario for IG.
Knowing that IG’s jungler is weaker, they can’t merely rely on skill differences.
IG Vs. FPX LoL Worlds Semifinals Prediction
Given that these are two Chinese teams battling, we can also safely take the over on the total kills in these games. However, my favorite bet would be on Map 1, where FPX will come out swinging.
The kill total of over 27.5 (-116) for FPX is a solid bet to take, even if they lose this game. FPX’s style pushes them to be continually fighting, even when behind. This means there’s a good shot this over hits regardless of the match outcome.
If FPX does lose Map 1, it will probably be due to an overconfident draft. I would take the same bet in Map 2 because this is a team that does not change their style, even if things don’t go the way they planned.
Overall, this should be an exciting series where the winner will face the winner between SKTelecom T1 and G2 Esports in the League of Legends Worlds finals.
I like FPX here at +111, with a final score of 3-2.
