Bilibili Gaming vs JD Gaming Predictions


Bilibili Gaming and JD Gaming will lock horns for the fifth time this season on Sunday, May 21, in the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 grand finals. Bilibili Gaming have yet to defeat JD Gaming this year, but they'll look to change that on the big stage.

Given the teams' history, it's not shocking to see esports betting sites have JD Gaming priced as 1.33 favourites to defeat Bilibili Gaming, who enter the match as 3.25 underdogs. However, even though Bilibili Gaming have yet to defeat JDG this year, they have looked very good recently – so perhaps this time it'll be different?

  • Bilibili Gaming need to find a formula to defeat JD Gaming
  • JD Gaming have not struggled against Bilibili Gaming once this season
  • BIlibili Gaming have momentum on their side

Head to Head


JD Gaming and Bilibili Gaming have met four times this season, which includes three best-of-five series – two in LPL 2023 Spring Playoffs and once in the second round of MSI 2023.

  • JD Gaming 1-0 Bilibili Gaming – January 14, 2023
  • JD Gaming 3-2 Bilibili Gaming – April 5, 2023
  • JD Gaming 3-1 Bilibili Gaming – April 15, 2023
  • JD Gaming 3-0 Bilibili Gaming – May 14, 2023

Bilibili Gaming Form


Bilibili Gaming continued their Cinderella Story on Saturday when they demolished T1 (3-1) in the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 semi-finals, marking another massive upset for the LoL Pro League (LPL) representatives. Just a day prior, they humiliated LCK's first seed, Gen.G (3-0), proving to the world that China is miles ahead of any other region.


Admittedly, Bilibili Gaming had it easy against Gen.G who played a terrible series, and it's not like BLG were phenomenal against T1 either. But as much as we can doubt Bilibili Gaming and their quality, they're winning games, and that's all that matters.

As already talked about, Bilibili Gaming is a flawed team that should be easily exploitable, but neither T1 nor Gen.G have managed to put that on full display.

Bilibili Gaming Squad & Team News


Bilibili Gaming won't make any roster changes.

  • Chen "Bin" Ze-Bin – top lane
  • Peng "XUN" Li-Xun – jungle
  • Zeng "Yagao" Qi – mid lane
  • Zhao "Elk" Jia-Hao – ADC
  • Luo "ON" Wen-Jun – support

JD Gaming Form


JD Gaming entered MSI 2023 as one of the main candidates to win it all, and they've yet to show anything that would make me doubt them. They crushed Golden Guardians in the first round, handed Bilibili Gaming (3-0) another loss in round two, and then had to dig deep, but still defeated T1 (3-2) in the semis.

This is arguably the most stacked roster the LoL esports scene has seen in years, filled with former world champions and top players in their respective roles. Even as a unit, JD Gaming look extremely good, even though I would say that their teamfighting strength is a bit exaggerated.

Nevertheless, JD Gaming have shown enough for anyone to agree that they're the best team in the world now - the only question is whether they'll prove that on Sunday.

JD Gaming Squad & Team News


No roster changes for JD Gaming.

  • Bai "369" Jia-Hao – top lane
  • Seo "Kanavi" Jin-hyeok - jungle
  • Zhuo "knight" Ding – mid lane
  • Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk - ADC
  • Lou "Missing" Yun-Feng – support

Verdict

Bilibili Gaming have defied all the odds in their last two outings and proved to all the doubters that they're stronger than many believed. However, it's very easy to get caught in the hype surrounding this team and forget that they're not set to face JD Gaming, who have beaten BLG four times this season and thrice in a best-of-five series without any issues.

There's an argument about how Bilibili Gaming have momentum on their side, which is true. But on the other side, JD Gaming have a lot more film on BLG to figure out how to approach this match - granted JDG have already proven that they have the winning formula.

Bilibili Gaming have been phenomenal this tournament, but I can't see them beating JD Gaming. At the offered odds, backing JD Gaming to cover the map handicap is the right play, and I'm adding a smaller position on JD Gaming to win 3-0.
