League of Legends Champions Korea 2019 » Betting Predictions
The League of Legends professional season has entered its third week in the European LEC, as well as in South Korean, where the best teams from the first division play on Wednesday. Action continues on Thursday and on both days, matches start at 8 AM UK time, so punters can bet on two matches every day. This is the third week, so after only four rounds, the hierarchy is not yet written in stone and savvy bettors can take advantage.

Damwon Gaming and Sandbox Gaming Aim First Place
Damwon Gaming and Sandbox Gaming are the two pleasant surprises of the season and both of them have started the new year on a positive note. Sandbox Gaming are tied for the lead with Griffin and could overtake them if they extend the run in spite of the underdog status. Betway prices their victory at 11/10, which is excellent value for a team that has won four games so far. By comparison, their opponents are credited with the first chance and odds of only 13/20, after defeating KT Rolster.
Afreeca Freecs and Jin Air Try to Leave Last Place
The two teams have hit rock bottom and they are in dire need of points to improve their position. Afreeca Freecs have lost the opening match, but at least they were able to snatch one game in the process. That’s why, they are such big favourites as reflected by the odds of 3/10, in spite of their otherwise modest start. Jin Air have lost all four games played so far and they have also struggled throughout the last season, so there’s a lot of pressure on them to improve. Rivalry offers superb odds of 5/2 on them to cause an upset.
Griffin and SKT Play the Derby on Thursday
Griffin are flawless after two weeks and with eight victories in just as many matches, they are currently the team to beat in the League of Legends European Champions Korea. ArcaneBet expects them to continue the winning streak and only offers odds of 7/20 on them to defeat the multiple trophy owners. SKT are slowly, but surely returning to form and if they win this match, they reclaim solitary first place, because of the head to head record. Odds of 23/10 suggest that SK Telecom has a tough mission ahead.
KT Rolster and Gen.G esports Seek Redemption
KT Rolster were the main favourites to win the world championship, but in this new LCK season, they are struggling. One victory in four series and just three matches won, are surely not enough for a team with such high expectations. They will be pushing for victory against Gen.G esports, another team credited at the beginning of the season with an excellent chance of winning the race. Pinnacle Sports sides with KT Rolster on this occasion and offers odds of 7/10, as opposed to 11/10 on Gen.G esports to prevail.
