Team BDS vs Misfits Gaming

Predictions: Team BDS to win

Odds: 2.00

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.bet

When: July 1, 2022 – 18:00 CEST

After a poor start to the LEC 2022 Summer and losses in the first two weeks, two teams at the bottom of the league will face off in the opening match of the week. Misfits, who had a great last season, are unfortunately not in the form they want this time.

After a poor season, Team BDS added young players to their roster. These players need experience and it’s evident in the games they’ve played. Despite this, they were very close to winning some of the games they lost.

The young team is not as bad as people think. Misfits, on the other hand, need to bounce back as soon as possible. I would take my chances with Team BDS.

Team Vitality vs SK Gaming

Predictions: Team Vitality to win

League of Legends Odds: 1.44

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.bet

When: July 1, 2022 – 19:00 CEST

Team Vitality are still not as strong as they would like. After building a “dream team”, the dynamics didn’t fall into place and they had to make a roster change. The new face of the roster needs to adapt to the rest of the team. 

On the SK Gaming side, things are not going well. They started the 2022 Summer season in an unwanted way. Both in terms of scoring and play, they have looked quite inferior to their opponents. With this sub-average play, it is very difficult for them to win against Vitality.

Vitality are the big favorite of the match.

Rogue vs Excel

League of Legends PredictionsExcel to win

Odds: 1.86

When: July 1, 2022 – 20:00 CEST

In a battle for the top spot in the Group Stage, leader Excel will take on the feared regular season team Rogue. Excel have already surpassed expectations, taking 4 wins in 5 matches.

Rogue, on the other hand, did not have one of their undefeated starts we are used to from them. The team lost 2 out of the 5 matches they played, and these defeats were against teams that were seen as their rivals in the league. 

It is very difficult to predict who will win, both because it is early in the season and because both teams have high potential. However, both teams finished their matches with high kill counts. So it’s best to head in that direction.

Fnatic vs Astralis

Predictions: Fnatic to win

Odds: 1.33

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.bet Esports

When: July 1, 2022 – 21:00 CEST

On paper, both teams have the same number of wins and losses. However, don’t let this fool you. Although Astralis managed to pick up three wins, all of them came against the weakest teams in the league – Misfits, Team BDS and SK Gaming. Yes, they are stronger than before, but it’s not enough.

Fnatic don’t look as flawless as last season either. With gaps in their play, the European giant let some games slip away that they shouldn’t have lost. Despite this, they look more settled and prepared.

If Fnatic want to stay on top, they need to win target matches like this one. In this series, it is quite possible that they will not repeat the mistakes they made in the first two weeks and come out victorious.

MAD Lions vs G2 Esports

Predictions: G2 Esports to win

Odds: 1.42

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.bet

When: July 1, 2022 – 22:00 CEST

In one of the most prominent matchups of the week, MAD Lions and G2 Esports will take the stage. G2 Esports currently share the lead with Excel with 4 wins. Their only loss was surprisingly against Team BDS. 

On the MAD Lions side, things are more complicated. After a disappointing end to last season, the team wants to return to their former champion days in LEC 2022 Summer. However, as the first two weeks have shown, it won’t be that easy. 

While G2 Esports seem to be the favorite, MAD Lions are a team that can always pull out a win in games like this. Knowing the risk involved, it’s worth noting that G2 Esports are our pick to win.
