2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational Day 1 Odds

2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational Day 1 Betting

At long last, the 2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational will get underway on Tuesday, May 10. This event will run for 20 days in South Korea, and it will take on a different format than we have seen in past years. Teams from the minor regions will not have to duke it out for one or two spots against the larger regions, as instead the representatives from all 11 regions will fight for six spots in the Rumble Stage. Naturally, teams like T1, Royal Never Give Up, and G2 Esports are enormous favorites by the Esports betting odds, but this has leveled the playing field.

2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational Betting Odds

T1 -1567

Saigon Buffalo +733

The favorites to win the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational are T1. The three-time world champions are the most decorated team in League of Legends history, and they are coming off their impressive performance ever. T1 went a perfect 18-0 in the regular season and swept Kwangdong Freecs in the semifinals before besting Gen.G 3-1 in the LCK Spring Split Finals. While Vietnamese teams have given some top teams trouble in this competition over the years, T1 is a level above the rest.

Team Aze +203

DetonatioN FocusMe -270

This is an important match for both DetonatioN FocusMe and Team Aze as one of the two teams out of Group A will certainly be T1. DFM are considerable favorites given the emergence of the Japanese region, and they have proven players in top laner Evi, jungler Steal, and bottom laner Yutapon. That trio has been together for four years, so there is a ton of familiarity there.

G2 Esports -1329

ORDER +669

There are only three teams in Group C, so G2 Esports will be doing double duty by taking on both ORDER and Evil Geniuses on the first day of MSI. G2 became the first European team to win a major international tournament when they claimed the MSI title in 2019, but this team has always needed time to get going at this event. The bottom lane of Flakked and Targamas played well as G2 came on strong in the LEC Spring Split Playoffs, but this wasn’t a great regular season squad.

G2 Esports -170

Evil Geniuses +133

Evil Geniuses are another team that came on strong in the postseason after a middling performance in the regular season. They were able to go on a tear through the lower bracket after losing their first series thanks to some great play from jungler Inspired and bottom laner Danny. However, this is clearly the weakest team of any of the squads from the four major regions.

Royal Never Give Up -1150

Istanbul Wildcats +614

We will not see Royal Never Give Up in Korea due to China’s COVID restrictions. Instead, RNG will be participating remotely from China, so there are concerns about ping. Xiaohu and Ming are proven performers on this stage, while GALA emerged as a quality bottom laner at last year’s Worlds. Istanbul Wildcats swept Galatasaray Esports in the TCL Finals, but they will have a tough time besting RNG.

PSG Talon -376

RED Canids +270

This has the potential to be the most exciting match of the day. Hanabi is a veteran that has plenty of experience on the international stage, while Unified and Kaiwing now have spent a decent amount of time together. However, Brazil’s RED Canids have a very talented bottom laner in TitaN, and they can keep opponents off balance by playing either Avenger or Grevthar in the mid lane.
