The Weekend Brings the Decisive LoL Worlds Group Stage Matches
A fantastic week has just concluded for League of Legends fans, with 12 competitive games scheduled on Thursday and Friday. Suning and G2 Esports have advanced from Group A, and they were joined by Damwon and JD Gaming from Group B. It is now the time for the teams playing in the last two groups to try to secure a place in the knockout stage, in the games scheduled on Saturday and Sunday
Fnatic and LGD Gaming Play a Coin Flip Derby on Saturday
Fnatic and LGD are currently tied for the lead with two victories and one defeat and they will play against each other on Saturday. LuckBox regards this game as a coin flip, given the narrow differences between the two teams. The Europeans have lost the first match but were unable to defeat the other two opponents, so they are narrow favorites at 19/20. LGD will try to continue their positive run from the play in stage and those who bet on their victory will capitalize on odds of 17/20.
TSM are Huge Underdogs in Decisive Match against Gen.G
TSM are almost eliminated from the competition after losing the first three games, but they still have faint chances to advance. They will need to cause a major upset against Gen.G in a game where they start with odds of 13/5. Unikrn justly credits the South Korean team with the first chance and LoL Worlds odds of 3/10 to take temporary lead after the third match of Group C. The final placement is very important, since teams try to avoid running into strong top opponents in the elimination rounds.
Top Esports Seek Invincible Run in Group D against DRX
Damwon were unable to finish the group stage with six victories and just as many games. Top Esports is the only team with a flawless performance so far and it can extend its winning streak on Sunday. The most difficult match is against the South Korean from DRX, which are strong favorites for second place. It is the Chinese outfit that starts with the first chance and LoL Worlds betting odds of 9/20 after also winning the first head to head match. A surprising victory for DRX is priced by GG.bet at 17/10.
The Final Countdown Begins on Sunday for FlyQuest and Unicorns of Love
FlyQuest and Unicorns of Love are still in the race for promotion, but they have slim chances to advance to the knockout stage. The North Americans are well-positioned after winning the head to head match and they are again credited with the first chance. Buff.bet offers odds of 3/4 on FlyQuest and 11/10 to those who are willing to take a leap of faith with Unicorns of Love. This is the second to last match and if the Europeans are already out of the race, they might not take it as seriously, which favors the Americans.
