There wasn’t much excitement during the Group Stage of the Mid-Season Invitational. The three teams that were the overwhelming favorites to win their groups by the League of Legends betting odds dominated and didn’t drop a single game, and the race for second place in each group wasn’t competitive either. Fortunately, the Rumble Stage will provide much more for fans as every team plays every other team in a double round robin with spots in the semifinals on the line over the next five days.
2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational Betting Odds
G2 Esports +300
T1 is the odds-on favorite to win MSI by the Esports betting odds, but G2 Esports have been a thorn in their side in international competitions. This is the most dominant T1 team we’ve ever seen, as they went unbeaten in the regular season and cruised to an LCK title before posting the best numbers of any team in the Group Stage. However, G2 will likely have something unconventional planned for T1, and the underdog has real value at this number.
Royal Never Give Up -1047
Evil Geniuses +579
The Evil Geniuses were exposed over the course of four games with G2. Inspired performed well in the jungle with a 6.5 KDA and 69.3% kill percentage per Games of Legends, but Danny and Vulcan were not sharp in the bottom lane. We know that Impact can play well as a weak side tank, yet he isn’t going to take over a game at this stage in his career, while Jojopyun still needs to hone his skills in the mid lane. That’s why Royal Never Give Up is the right choice in this match even though this is a lot of chalk.
Saigon Buffalo -104
PSG Talon -122
The breakout team at the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational was PSG Talon. They finished the Rumble Stage with a 6-4 record, and the only teams that were better than them were from Korea and China. However, PSG Talon is not as good as they were last year as Bay has really struggled in the mid lane, and Juhan is not as good of a jungler as River. The bottom lane of Unified and Kaiwing should be enough to carry the day against Saigon Buffalo though if they can survive the early game.
Royal Never Give Up -257
G2 Esports +194
Top laner Bin is the main question for Royal Never Give Up. Wei has been better than expected in the jungle with a 12.6 KDA at this tournament so far, while Xiaohu is as strong as ever in the mid lane. Gala and Ming are thriving in the bottom lane, but Bin has not played well in his solo matchups. Bin is carrying a 4.3 KDA with a shockingly low 40.5% kill percentage, and that’s where G2 will have to punish RNG to win this match.
Saigon Buffalo +113
Evil Geniuses -144
This is a nice spot to take an underdog. Taki is a superb support that leads Saigon Buffalo with a 4.5 KDA, and he can get the bottom lane ahead for the VCS representatives. Saigon Buffalo’s frenetic early game pace can frustrate their opponents, so it might be a good idea to go against the North American champions here.
PSG Talon +809
While T1 is clearly the team to beat at MSI, this price is much too high. T1 is certainly the most talented team at this tournament with stars in every position, but they should not be this much of a favorite now that they are actually facing real competition.
