G2 Esports and Fnatic Keep the Europeans Dream Alive at LoL Worlds
The decisive round of LoL Worlds begins on Thursday, but the matches the Europeans are waiting for take place on Saturday and Sunday. On the first they of the weekend Fnatic will try to offset crushing odds and defeat the main favorites Top Esports. On Sunday, G2 Esports take on Gen.G, one of the most experienced team from South Korea and one that has made deep runs at the Worlds tournament.
Fnatic are Huge Underdogs in the Quarterfinal against Top Esports
Fnatic finished second in a group where every team had a decent chance to qualify, to set up a clash with the main favorites. The Europeans tend to elevate their level of play in the decisive round, so the odds of 5/1 offered by LuckBox on them to win are spectacular. There were many instances in which Fnatic players took unnecessary risks during the group stage and this can’t happen in the quarterfinals. Their Chinese opponents are deadly early on and have the ability to snowball any advantage they gain.
Top Esports were credited with the first chance by Unikrn when the tournament began and they are also crushing favorites in this quarterfinal, with odds of 3/20. They showed no signs of weakness in the group stage and the only lost match was one decided by a single team fight. Punters who bet on them to sweep Fnatic will be paid at 13/10 by the same bookmaker. It is more reasonable to bet on the underdog to win at least one match, given the Europeans strength and experience, plus the LoL Worlds betting odds of 3/5.
G2 Esports Seek another Final Berth when they take on Gen.G
G2 Esports were impeccable at LoL Worlds in 2019 and were expected to win the final played against FunPlus Phoenix. Even though they crumbled totally in the final act of the competition, en route to reaching the final, they defeated one of the best teams from Korea. Gen.G are similar to T1 in terms of experience and skill but they lack that aggressive spark. That’s why even though they start with the first chance and odds of 3/4 at Buff.bet, we like the even odds offered on G2 Esports to prevail.
The seteams have never met before, so there is no head to head record to take into account when placing a bet. On the other hand, there are a few special markets that punters should consider, as GG.bet offers top LoL Worlds odds. Betting on over 27.5 kills will produce odds of 9/10, a threshold that was frequently crossed by both teams during the group stage. G2 Esports has a horrible first Dragon ratio and even though Gen.G didn’t excel at this during LoL Worlds they usually prioritize this objective and the odds are 9/10 on each team.
