It tries to set the matches up so that your team has a roughly 50% winrate.
So, in short, it balances out.

Difficulty of the match is shared by everyone on the team.
For example, if a Bronze, a Gold, and three Silvers were playing against 5 Silvers, and the matchmaker felt that the first team had a 46% chance of winning, then everyone on that first team would get a bit more LP for winning since they're the underdogs.
The Bronze player isn't more of an underdog because he's just part of the team and they all win or lose together.

This doesn't come up often in Solo queue because the teams are generally balanced, but with ranked teams occasionally there will be more unbalanced matches and the underdog team could gain a lot of LP for a win.
