We’re more than halfway through the LEC Summer Split, and once again G2 Esports and Fnatic are at the top of the table. G2 are 9-1 with their only loss of the season coming against Fnatic, while Fnatic are 8-2 and finally got back in the win column after consecutive losses to Splyce and Rogue.
Fnatic are a team in transition though. Against Rogue, Fnatic subbed out Rekkles and brought in mid laner MagiFelix. The result wasn’t great as Rogue smashed Fnatic, but it shows that the organization is not content with where they are at this point. It will be interesting to see whether or not they do anything new this week.
2019 LEC Summer Split Week 6 Betting Odds
FC Schalke 04 +115
We’ve seen some great play out of Splyce in recent weeks. They are 7-3 in the Summer Split and knocked off Fnatic, but we know exactly what to expect from this team too. Splyce are a team that plays for the late game above all else. Their average game time is 35 minutes per Games of Legends, and only two other teams are averaging more than 34 minutes per game.
Schalke are one of those teams, and they can pull off the win behind late game win condition Upset. While Splyce play for the late game as a whole so they can get to teamfights, Schalke know their bread is buttered by Upset, and he has not let them down. Four of his five champions played this split are late game scaling champions, and he has an incredible 22 KDA on Sivir.
Excel Esports +131
Misfits Gaming -165
Misfits are playing for next year. They were the team seen as the most likely to challenge G2 and Fnatic for European supremacy at the start of the season, but they are now in rebuilding mode. All of their starters have been placed on the bench and given the chance to find spots elsewhere, and that has led to top laner Soaz and support Gorilla bidding the team adieu.
The reserve team for Misfits split their matches last week, falling to Splyce but beating Rogue. They were somewhat competitive in the loss to Splyce, and it seems like the former academy roster will be used going forward. Excel are a mess right now, and I think Misfits can win.
Team Vitality -120
Vitality lost the first game between these two teams this year, as some poor play in the early game from Vitality led to Rogue earning an insurmountable advantage as Sona and Taric scaled and became unstoppable.
That duo is largely out of the meta now, and I think Vitality will pick up the win this time. They are more talented on an individual level, and they have looked sharper than they did at the start of the Summer Split.
Rekkles has an 11.3 KDA this season, and there’s no doubt that he is still one of the best AD Carries in Europe. However, he is not very versatile with his selections, leading to Fnatic experimenting with other options. His shallow champion pool (compared to others) means that Fnatic can’t be as flexible as other teams, and that puts them at a disadvantage. I think that could very well lead to an upset win for Origen.
G2 Esports -680
SK Gaming +446
It’s taken some time for oddsmakers to give G2 the respect they deserve. They are the best team in Europe by a mile, and they should be hefty favorites in every game that isn’t against another top team. These League of Legends betting odds are closer to what we should see when a team plays against G2.
