League of Legends KeSPA Cup 2018 Semifinals » Betting Tips
League of Legends fans have had an excellent year and they have high expectations for what 2019 might bring. Major tournaments have crowned several winners throughout the year and it all culminated with the World Championship of November. This month, there is a single tournament of great magnitude underway and it goes by the name of KeSPA Cup 2018. It brings together some of the best South Korean teams, with a total of 16 participating in the tournament that started on December 18.
The competition didn’t have a group stage and instead players have advanced to the decisive round after direct elimination matches. Four of them have made it to the semi finals, which are scheduled to take place on Friday and Saturday. The Grand Final is scheduled for Sunday and all the remaining matches will be played in a best-of-five format. The winning team will walk away with $35,000, the runners up will have to settle for a bit over $17000 and the third and fourth places will collect nearly $9000.
KT Rolster Take on Gen.G esports
Without a doubt the most anticipated match of the tournament so far is the semi-final between KT Rolster and Gen.G esports. These are the best two teams in the tournament and they will meet in the first semi-finals, scheduled for December 28. Betway credit Gen.G esports with the first chance, but they have a minimum advantage over their opponents. They were also the only team to enjoy a free round in the opening stage, which explains the odds of 4/5 offered by the bookmaker on the favourites to prevail.
KT Rolster were the main favourite to win the World Championship in November and even though they failed, this is a team that deserves respect. Now they are credited with the second chance and excellent odds of 1/1 at bet-at-home. KT Rolster have qualified straight to the quarterfinals and secured passage to the next stage in straight games. This makes a bet on their victory worth considering by punters.
Griffin in our Favourites against Damwon
Griffin didn’t have to go through the qualifying rounds and just as KT Rolster have started the tournament in the quarterfinals stage. They had no problem in defeating Afreeca Freecs and even though the matches lasted longer than expected, they have qualified for the semi-finals. ArcaneBet regard them as clear favourites to prevail once again and that’s why punters can only expect odds of 3/10 on their victory.
Damwon are the pleasant surprise of the tournament, as they’ve emerged victorious against theoretically better opponents. They have only won the first series in straight matches and then needed three games in each of the next two rounds. The most impressive victory was secured in the quarterfinals against SKT against crushing odds. There is huge value in the odds of 5/2 offered by Rivalry on them to prevail.
