FlyQuest vs TSM

Predictions: FlyQuest to win

Odds: 1.52

Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 17, 2022 – 21:30 CEST

After a break in the Western leagues, LCS teams are ready to return to the stage. The opening matchup of the second day of the week pits FlyQuest and TSM against each other. TSM have no choice but to get a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

As is often the case, FlyQuest are one of the league’s average power teams in LCS Summer 2022. While they haven’t exactly dominated everyone, they have a certain quality, and that quality has gotten them the wins they needed.

LCS Summer Betting Tips and Analysis

What is surprising is TSM’s two-season losing streak. Last season, the organization had one of the worst starts in their history, and this season they have only two wins in 7 matches. In addition to that, their roster is playing a mediocre game. That’s why FlyQuest are one step ahead in this series.

Counter Logic Gaming vs 100 Thieves

Predictions: 100 Thieves to win

League of Legends Odds: 1.40

Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 17, 2022 – 22:30 CEST

This is one of the most important matches of the week as both teams are at the top of the standings and want to consolidate their position. This will be the first time the teams will face each other this season and only 1 win separates them.

Coming into this match, 100 Thieves had a two-game winning streak, while CLG had a 2-game losing streak. The two-week break was a good opportunity for FlyQuest to review their mistakes.

Looking at the rosters’ past meetings and their current form, 100 Thieves have the edge. They are also the closer side to win this match.

Evil Geniuses vs Team Liquid

Predictions: First kill to Team Liquid

Odds: 1.85

When: July 17, 2022 – 11:30 CEST

Another matchup that will be closely tied at the top. The two title contenders of LCS Summer 2022 will face off for the first time this season. Evil Geniuses are currently the hottest team in the league with 6 wins in 7 matches. However, their opponent Team Liquid also have 5 wins.

LCS Summer Betting Tips and Analysis

Although EG are closer to the win, it is very difficult to predict a side in a match like this. Instead of doing that, a more obvious option emerges when looking at the teams’ stats. 

Evil Geniuses have taken first blood in only 44% of their matches, while Team Liquid are ahead of their opponent with 68.6%. We can predict that TL will get the first kill in this match with a similar scenario.

Cloud9 vs Immortals

Predictions: Cloud9 to win

Odds: 1.22

Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 18, 2022 – 00:30 CEST

After two matches that are expected to be close, LCS fans will be treated to a more one-sided affair. Immortals, who are at the bottom of the league with only one win, will chase their second win against Cloud9.

This match is not too difficult to predict. In fact, Immortals organization have played bad League of Legends games throughout 2022. Even though their roster looked above average on paper, the players couldn’t find that harmony and they couldn’t do anything but suffer back-to-back defeats.

Things are not going very well for Cloud9 either. They have only 3 wins in 7 games and are just a click above the playoff line. They need to win games like this to see the next stage of the league.
