JD and Invictus Gaming are set to battle it out in the LPL Spring Split once again. The two teams have had a middling performance so far this season, although none has done too badly. JD is naturally the favorite in the upcoming bout with (1.37) on the moneyline.
This is partly justified but Esports Grizzly has a reputation for sticking with the underdog, and we will take a look at whether this is true and if the underdog carries a hidden value betting opportunity. We believe that IG has it in them to tackle JD in the Spring Split. Let’s take a look.

JD Betting Preview (Feb 22, 2022)
JD Gaming are understandably placed ahead here. They have the better seed at #7 n the current LPL Spring Split ranking and they have a 57% win rate. That puts them ahead of IG who have a mere 33%. Week 6 is quite important for JD Gaming as they would try to break into either the #5 or #6 spot but they would have to defeat IG, AL, and not least, BLG in order to achieve that.
JD have won ten out of seventeen games which means that they always fight to the last minute to secure a win. Evidently, this hasn’t worked in all instances, but there aren’t many teams in the LPL that have been able to sweep JDG in a clear 2-0 run. The only team to achieve this is Edward Gaming in Week 1, but since then if JD have lost a game, it only happened after a highly-contested series.
That is what makes us believe that JD Gaming will be the most likely winner of this clash. However, there are other factors to consider. For one, IG won’t go down without a fight as well.
Invictus Gaming Betting Preview (Feb 22, 2022)
Invictus Gaming are having a bit of a bad run this season. They have lost 13 out of 20 total games, which means they have almost no chance of succeeding against JD Gaming. They have been swept in 2-0 series by the likes of RNG and OMG, two teams that JD faced and performed very well against.
IG would be a great underdog were it not for its fairly bad run so far. And still, there is a good chance that the skill gap between JD and IG isn’t so great. For this reason alone, we believe that Invictus may have a chance at winning a single game. However, we are going to go with a correct score for this game and bet 2-0 on JD.
- Pick: Correct score 2-0 (2.34)
