LCK Summer 2024 Betting – Early Insights

Dplus KIA Rising?

Anyone who’s been around the LCK for a few years recalls the former dominance of Dplus KIA, when the organization was known as DWG KIA.

However, since 2022, or since renaming to Dplus KIA, the organization has regressed in their performances. They rebuilt their core roster ahead of the 2024 season with three new signings, and hopes were high for this team.

After a 5th place finish at LCK Spring 2024, they’ve started LCK Summer 2024 with two valiant wins against both KT Rolster and Hanwha Life Esports.

While that might not sound impressive, both teams placed higher than Dplus KIA in the previous split. In a region where cross-team rivalries and expectations are set way before the match start, could this be the split where Dplus KIA can climb back into the top 3 and push better esports odds?

T1 Bleed early, Gen.G still flawless

For a couple of years now, T1 has commanded the LCK both as a dominant team and as a fan-favourite for esports betting.

Back in Spring 2024, they only lost three matches – 1 week into LCK Summer 2024, and they’ve already conceded a game. Naturally, though, their loss comes at the hands of none other than Gen.G, the LCK Spring Playoffs champions.

In what looks to be a continuous rivalry, we fully expect Gen.G and T1 to continue putting on a show in the LCK region. However, falling 0-2 to Gen.G in Week 1, T1 need to put up a better fight next time.

Carrying on their 11-game win streak from the LCK Spring Regular Season, Gen.G has made it a 20 game winstreak if you include their LCK Spring Playoffs and MSI tournament runs.

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, Gen.G is dominating international League of Legends after claiming the Mid-Season Invitational for Korea.

With each of their players fighting for MVP status at MSI, Gen.G are LoL betting favourites ahead of every game they feature in.
