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.
|2||SK Telecom T1||6-1||12-4|
|6||Jin Air Green Wings||4-3||9-7|
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:
- Ever8 Winners vs. KT Rolster
- ROX Tigers (5/1) vs. SK Telecom T1 (1/9)
- ROX Tigers (8/15) vs. Team MVP (11/8)
- BBQ Olivers (10/1) vs. KT Rolster (1/50)
- Samsung Galaxy (3/10) vs. Jin Air Green Wings (12/5)
- Longzhu Gaming (8/11) vs. Afreeca Freecs (Even)
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:
|2||Counter Logic Gaming||5-1||11-6|
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:
- Immortals (5/6) vs. Counter Logic Gaming (5/6)
- Flyquest vs. Team SoloMid
- Echo Fox (2/5) vs. Phoenix1 (7/4)
- Counter Logic Gaming vs. Team EnVyUs (5/4)
- Cloud9 (2/7) vs. Team Liquid (5/2)
- Immortals (8/11) vs. Team Dignitas (Even)
- Team Liquid (5/6) vs. Phoenix1 (5/6)
- Team SoloMid (8/15) vs. Echo Fox (11/8)
- Cloud9 (5/6) vs. Team Dignitas (5/6)
- Flyquest (13/8) vs. Team EnVyUs (4/9)
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:
|5||Ninjas in Pyjamas||0-4||0-8|
|2||Unicorns of Love||3-1||7-3|
This week, there are just six matches. Here are the matchups and odds.
- Misfits (3/10) vs. Team Vitality (12/5)
- Fnatic (4/6) vs. H2K Gaming (11/10)
- ROCCAT (11/8) vs. Splyce (8/15)
- Unicorns of Love (11/10) vs. G2 Esports (4/6)
- Ninjas in Pyjamas (8/1) vs. H2K Gaming (1/25)
- Fnatic (1/16) vs. Mysterious Monkeys (7/1)
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.
2017 LPL Summer Split
The Chinese qualifier also has two groups. It has proven to be an intriguing few weeks with just one of the 12 teams remaining undefeated. The two tables for this section are outlined below.
|3||Royal Never Give Up||2-1||4-4|
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.
