The 2019 League of Legends World Championship is already well underway. Esports betting fans will have already seen teams like Clutch Gaming and Splyce put in some incredible performances.

But who are the LoL players that are taking things to the next level? This year’s edition of LoL Worlds includes plenty of legendary multiple-time champions, and lots of very promising rookies.

In order to help you out with your LoL bets, we’ve created a shortlist of the best players. This will include the ultimate top lane, jungle, mid lane, bot lane and support players that you should keep an eye on.


Few people would deny the fact that Martin ‘Wunder’ Hansen has helped G2 Esports become one of the most feared LoL teams. The 20-year old Danish star has been part of the G2 Esports team for two years, and he’ll be pivotal in the side’s group stage clash against Griffin on 13 October.

Other top-laners to keep an eye out for include the consistently strong Kang ‘TheShy’ Seung-lok of Invictus Gaming, and Jang ‘Nuguri’ Ha-gwon of Damwon Gaming.

Griffin should not be underestimated in this year’s LoL Worlds. This is because Lee ‘Tarzan’ Seung-yong is easily one of the world’s best junglers. The South Korean star played a key role in Griffin’s LCK triumphs this year, and he could easily be nominated MVP for this year’s main event.

Don’t forget that Gao ‘Tian’ Tian-liang of FunPlus Phoenix can also deliver some phenomenal results when it matters.


If you’re talking about mid-laners, then obviously Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok is the real deal. The SK Telecom T1 star has been working well with Park ‘Teddy’ Jin-seong, but there are plenty more top mid-laners in this year’s LoL Worlds.

Jeong ‘Chovy’ Ji-hoon is key player in the Griffin team. The interplay between Chovy and Tarzan helped the side get into three successive LCK finals, and it’s going to be fascinating to see how far they get at the 2019 LoL Worlds.

Invictus Gaming might be an outside LoL bet for this year’s tournament. But they do have one of the best bot lane players in Yu ‘JackeyLove’ Wen-bo.

For a while it looked like Invictus Gaming might not even make it to LoL Worlds, but thanks to JackeyLove’s determination and talent, they now have an outside chance.


Zdravets ‘Hylissang’ Galabov has been great at finding engages for Fnatic. Again, this team could find it hard at this year’s LoL Worlds, but the 24-year old Bulgarian support star should make things easier for them.

G2 Esports should do well with Mihael ‘Mikyx’ Mehle in the support role. The 20-year old Slovenian player only came to G2 Esports last year, but could make this a year to remember for the team.
