High-quality esports betting this weekend lies in the League of Legends Summer Split series taking place across China, Korea, North America, and Europe.

2017 LCK Summer Split

This week’s games in the LCK Summer Split are already underway. Let’s take a look at how the standings look in Korea.

Pos Team Name Record Agg
1 Samsung Galaxy 6-1 13-4
2 SK Telecom T1 6-1 12-4
3 KT Rolster 5-1 10-5
4 Longzhu Gaming 5-2 12-5
5 Afreeca Freecs 4-3 11-9
6 Jin Air Green Wings 4-3 9-7
7 ROX Tigers 1-5 5-10
8 Bbq OLIVERS 1-6 4-13
9 Ever8 Winners 1-6 4-12
10 Team MVP 1-6 2-13

There is a clear divide in the Korean qualifying section. SK Telecom T1 remain the favourites in this group, but they face a real challenge from KT Rolster and Samsung Galaxy, who have a solid shot at being champions this year.

The remaining fixtures from Bet365 are as follows:

The most evenly contested matchup is the last one of the week, which sees fourth place take on fifth. Afreeca Freecs must win to stand any chance of breaking into the top four and the monopoly of the top three teams.

2017 NA LCS Summer Split

It’s been an interesting few weeks in the North American Summer Split. Three teams are making a charge at the top of the group. There’s a host of key games this week. Here’s how things stand:

1 Immortals 5-1 10-5
2 Counter Logic Gaming 5-1 11-6
3 Team Dignitas 5-1 11-5
4 Team SoloMid 4-2 9-5

6 Cloud9 3-3 8-6
7 Team EnVyUs 3-3 7-8
8 FlyQuest eSports 1-5 4-10
9 Team Liquid 1-5 3-11
10 Phoenix1 0-6 4-12

Similar to the Korean qualifier, three teams have taken charge of the group, having lost just one game each. There are also three teams adrift at the bottom of the rankings, and Phoenix1 has yet to pick up any victory.

This weekend will see each team in action twice. The fixtures, together with the odds (if available), are outlined below:

There are a number of massive games to look out for this weekend, including a battle between two of the top three sides. Immortals take on Counter Logic Gaming and then the other team in that group, Team Dignitas, in what promise to be two defining games at the top of the table.

2017 EU LCS Summer Split

In Europe, the 10 teams are split into two groups, have completed the first set of group games, and will now face each of the teams in the other group once during the next few weeks. Here’s how the two group tables currently stand:

Group A

Pos Team Name Record Agg
1 Fnatic 3-1 7-3
2 Misfits 3-1 6-4

3 Splyce 3-1 6-3
4 Vitality 1-3 2-6
5 Mysterious Monkeys 0-4 0-8

This week, there are just six matches. Here are the matchups and odds.

It will certainly be a week of contrast. The top two sides face each other in the second game, and then both teams also face the bottom team in each group.

6 JD Gaming 0-4 3-8

At the moment, OMG are the star team, having won all four of their games. On the other hand, IMay and JD Gaming are both waiting for their first win. DAN Gaming and EDward Gaming are both in contention in Group A, and Team WE, one of the World Championship favourites, is also tucked in a nice position.

There are a number of fixtures across both groups outlined below.
