Home I eSports I League of Legends Worlds Betting Tips
Since the League of Legends Worlds Championship is knocking at the door, it’s time for our Worlds betting tips article. Primarily we will analyze the current form of the teams, their way to the competition, and the potential outcome of the event. Who are the favorites and the underdogs of the most prestigious LoL tournament? Find out right here!
Considered as one of the best teams in the world and holder of the second place in gosugamers ranking, ROX Tigers are surely the favorite of group A. Currently, Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho and his teammates are the number one in the strongest Region in eSports– South Korea. During the year, they managed to get ahead in the ranking over their biggest rivals and current champions of Worlds 2015 – SKT T1. However, Smeb is also considered a favorite to become the best player of the tournament by most of the eSports bookmakers. His plays and leadership are crucial for the ROX Tigers, and the fact that he is in a stellar form gives the Koreans a great chance to win the entire competition.
Another team that deserves attention in group A are the Europeans from G2 Esports. As a winner of the EU LCS, the hopes of all European fans are mainly tied to them. They might surprise the Korean favorites in the group stage, but the chances for the title are minimal.
The champ is here! Group B also features some of the best League of Legends teams in the world. Of course, the favorite for the first place is the well-known two-time Worlds Champion – SK Telecom T1. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok and his fellows are determined to reclaim first place as the best Korean team and to strike back at their biggest “enemies”, ROX Tigers. Cloud9 will probably be the runner up of the group, but Team I May also has their fair chances and the battle will surely be fierce.
The number one in the world ranking, EDward Gaming, is also the top contender for the Worlds title. EDG is currently on a perfect winning streak and is one of the teams with the best form. The competition in Group C is not that tough, therefore we can predict that the first place in the group is ensured for the Chinese players. The bookmakers are giving equal chances for the European team H2K and the Taiwan boys from ahq e-Sports Club. It looks like the INTZ e-Sports will be the underdog of the group.
Group D can also be referred to as the “Group of Death”. Probably, the winner of North American Summer split and holder of an impressive record of 17-1, Team Solo Mid, will manage to take first place. However, it won’t be a walk-over. They are in the company of the runner-up from the Chinese region, Team Royal Never Give Up, the traditionally strong Team Samsung Galaxy, and the runner-up from European region, Splyce. TSM will certainly sweat for that 1st place. From a betting point of view, Americans and Koreans have equal chances for the number one spot of the group. At the same time, Splyce and RNG are considered as underdogs. If you want a good profit, bet on Royal Never Give Up.
As a conclusion, we can recommend you betting on one of these teams – TSM, EDward Gaming, ROX Tigers and SK1 Telecom to win the Worlds title. We expect ROX Tigers and TSM to make it to the final, where the team of ROX Tigers is going to come out ahead, continuing the Korean dominance of League of Legends scene.
