Welcome to EGamersWorld!
As part of the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 roundup, we've reached the betting rounds for the T1 vs JD Gaming match. The close matches continue and it can't help but feel good.
The Asian tops will battle it out for the place in the MSI 2023 grand final. The match promises to be as hot as possible, for on paper the two clubs are as close as possible to each other, and their performance suggests about the same level of play.
We will try to see who will be stronger in this round of LPL vs LCK and at the end of the match will be the first finalist of MSI 2023.
There are a few unwritten rules in competitive League of Legends and a couple of patterns as well. One of these is that if T1s play, they are always the favourites.
Indeed, it's hard to remember when T1s have approached a match as number two and MSI 2023 is not such a case. T1 will be favourites with odds from bookmakers around 1.7.
Looking ahead - the gap is small. However, there's nowhere to go.
T1 finished second in the new season at LCK Spring 2023. After their group stage showdown, Faker and company went on to the championship play-offs, where they were the early contenders.
They kept their status right up to the grand final, where they got thanks to a 3-1 victory over Gen.G. However, already in the grand final something happened to T1 and they Ledge were defeated by the same Gen.G that they had beaten just a few days before.
- T1's line-up: zeus, Oner, Faker, Gumayusi, Keria.
For the roster of the T1 Mid-Season Invitational 2023 is particularly crucial. It is not just an occasion for them to win the first international tournament of the season, but also a chance to shake off the curse of the grand final. T1 have already lost 4 finals on their record, and it's hard to think of a more symbolic way to break it than MSI 2023.
So far, T1 are doing well, although you can't call their journey easy. In the first round, of course, everything went smoothly, MAD Lions didn't make an obstacle or anything.
But in the second round, it was much more hectic. T1 played against their main rival, fellow Gen.G. The rematch of the LCK Spring 2023 grand final was more than upbeat and ended on map 5 in favor of T1.
Most popular T1 champions

- In the Forest, Vi (11 games, 72% wins), Sejuani (10 games, 80% wins), Wukong (7 games, 85% wins), Le Sin (6 games, 83% wins) were picks.

T1 are ready to advance to the grand final of the Mid-Season Invitational 2023, but their opponent is not vigilant either. After Gen.G, T1 will face another test.
JD Gaming's form
We continue our review of the JD Gaming - T1 match with a breakdown of the JD Gaming uniforms. In this match, the LPL representative will play as the underdog.
The odds of JD Gaming winning are estimated at odds around 1.9. It can be seen that the gap T1 is minimal, and given the format of the match bo5 and the overall level of play of the clubs, we have parity.
It is logical, because JD Gaming is another contender to win and the reigning LPL champion. Given the increased level of play there in recent years, the LPL teams are deservedly respected.
JD Gaming became the champions of the LPL spring draw quite easily. The only difficult matchup came in the top semifinals, where BLG gave JDG a hard time, taking 2 games.
- JD Gaming: 369, Kanavi, Knight, Ruler, Missing .
Having made it to the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 JD Gaming are still proving their pre-tournament position. The first series Bracket Stage 3-0 against Golden Guardians and then 3-0 against Bilibili, who had problems before the MSI 2023 Long Sogpega but they faded away once they raised the stakes to an international championship.
JD Gaming's most popular heroes
- Top Line: Renekton (7 games, 71% wins), KSante (7 games, 85% wins), Sion (4 games, 100% wins)
- Jungle: Wukong (5 games, 100% wins)
- Centre Line: Ahri (3 matches, 100% wins).
- Gunner: Zeri (2 games, 100% wins), Aphelios (2 games, 100% wins).
- Sappers: Lulu (2 games, 100% wins), Rakan (2 matches, 100% wins).
We'll be treated to a roughly identical playstyle on both sides. Again, expect a close match with a potentially "unexpected" outcome.
History of head-to-head encounters between T1 and JD Gaming
The only match the teams played in Worlds 2022. The Boomers won then, with T1 winning 3-1, leaving JD Gaming no chance. Now the LPL champions will have a chance to get even.
Result of the match
The Bracket Stage MSI 2023 top net final should be hot and close and there is every reason to believe so. However, I will believe in a T1 win.
They are slightly better at adapting and playing more flexible LoL. The same Nautilus on the centre line is T1's calling card.
I don't believe in a clean win for T1 though. Given how hard they beat Gen.G, the match with JDG won't end easily for them.
Bottom line: 3-2 win for T1.
All bookmakers have agreed that T1 is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.93. This number in the favor of JD Gaming amounts 2.116. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
