League of Legends Demacia Cup 2018 » Betting Predictions
League of Legends fans have apparently ran out of major tournaments to watch during this time of the year. After crowning the best teams in the world in November, professional players have largely returned to their streams on Twitch and YouTube. This month however, there is one tournament that shows a lot of promise not only for the fans, but also those who bet on esports. Get ready for Demacia Cup 2018!
The tournament has a simple structure, with a double elimination bracket and a single match played in the first round. The other series will consist of up to 3 games and the grand final will require a maximum of 5 matches. The top four teams from the LPL 2018 Summer playoffs were invited and they will be joined by the top three teams from NEST. The final place is occupied by the winner of the LDL 2018 Grand Finals.
Invictus Gaming and Sino Dragons are Big Favourites
The matches look surprisingly balanced even in the opening round of the tournament, with Invictus Gaming being the only clear favorites. The reigning world champions will play against Suning Gaming and bet-at-home offers odds of 7/20 on their victory. Since this is a best of one match, there is no possibility of betting on the favorites to cover the spread, for the sake of bigger odds. On the other hand, punters have the option of siding with the underdogs and cash in on odds of 2/1 at Betway.
Rogue Warriors and Sino Dragons will lock horns in the second match of the day, which at the first glance is the least exciting. Sino Dragons fans couldn’t care less though, because their team is favourite to win the opening match, as reflected by the odds of 1/2 offered by ArcaneBet. Rogue Warriors have greatly improved their game in the second half of 2018 and could cause an upset. At odds of 3/2 offered by Pinnacle Sports they are definitely worth a shot and punters can also bet on the special markets.
Royal Never Give Up and EDward Gaming play the Derby
The League of Legends Demacia Cup 2018 will continue with a highly contested match between JD Gaming and Topsports Gaming. GG.bet expects the latter to kickstart their campaign with a victory, but they are only narrow favourites, as suggested by the odds of 3/5. JD Gaming have a lot of experience and the pro-gamers in their team have played together for quite a while, so odds of 13/10 are terrific.
The organizers of the Demacia Cup 2018 have saved the best for last, with the highlight of the day being the match between Royal Never Give Up and EDward Gaming. Esportsbetting.com are once again siding with Royal Never Give Up which gets odds of 13/20. This team was the main favourite at the World Championship but fell short and this gives EDward Gaming fans a reason to hope. Odds of 11/10 are just big enough to justify taking a leap of faith with the underdogs.
