Do you really need information about the obvious? The reason to go premade is better communication. I even refuse to play with friends in a premade, when they refuse to come onto our ts3, because the slaughter will be predictable.

You answered the question yourself already. There is more to this game than just stats. If you have good stats most of the games yet get still matched with people with lower stats, you are playing bad on other parts of the game than the mechanical part. Good stats are often achieved by players who mastered the laning of this game. But laning is just one part.
Let me give you an exaggerated example to demonstrate:
Let's imagine a player who goes rampage each and every game. He stomps his opponents like mad, going 25/0/XX every game, without ever leaving his lane. Then, by the 15 minutes mark, he goes back to base and never leaves it again. Surely his team will be able to win some of those 4vs5 games. But most of those games will be a loss. Even so the player had the best scores, he made his team lose those games.
To add insult to injury, going back to base and not move again isn't the worst mistake one could make in this game (although being pretty close). So while you might dominate your lane, chances are high that you are making huge mistakes during other parts of the game, which keeps your Elo low enough to get matched with and against players, who don't do these mistakes, but who can't dominate their lane as much as you do.
MM relies on Elo to match people. Since Elo basically is a measurement for success, all relevant factors for winning a game are factored into it. So if you are doing something consistently better than the average player on your Elo, you have to be doing something else consistently worse than the average player on your Elo as you would raise in Elo and not get matched with and against those players anymore if you wouldn't.
