Team BDS vs SK Gaming

Predictions: SK Gaming to win

Odds: 1.60

Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 22, 2022 – 18:00 CEST

The bottom two teams in the league will open the fifth week of LEC 2022 Summer. Although they are in last place, there is a difference between the two teams. SK Gaming’s playoff hopes are still alive.

LEC Summer 2022 Week 5 Prediction and Analysis

Until last week, Team BDS and SK Gaming had one win each and shared last place in the league. However, after two weeks, SK Gaming managed to win all their games last week and suddenly found themselves in the playoff race. 

On the Team BDS side, there is nothing promising. Their opponents are the favorites in this series.

Misfits Gaming vs Excel

Predictions: Total kills over 22.5

League of Legends Odds: 1.42

Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 22, 2022 – 19:00 CEST

Teams with different form graphs will take the stage. Excel, who started the league perfectly, found themselves in a difficult situation as they lost the first place in the league due to the defeats they suffered in the last weeks. On the other hand, Misfits Gaming has managed to make a 5-win streak in the league where they started 0-4 with the opposite story and brought their score to 5-4.

The two teams have different game strategies. While Excel tries to win the early game and end the match early in the matches they win, Misfits wants to choose late game champions and prolong the game. Long game means more kills. Therefore, the kill count will likely to be high.

Vitality vs MAD Lions

Predictions: MAD Lions to win | Total kills over 22.5

Odds: 1.62 | 1.58

When: July 22, 2022 – 20:00 CEST

In a matchup that will affect the top of the league and the playoff race at the same time, Vitality and MAD Lions will try to one-up each other. To be honest, it’s hard to predict how both teams will perform and when. Because they both love to be ridiculous at times.

That being said, we see plenty of kills in the matches that Vitality wins and loses. It would be more accurate to say that the kill count will be high rather than predicting sides. For those who want to find the winner, MAD Lions is one step forward.

G2 Esports vs Astralis

Predictions: G2 Esports to win

Odds: 1.28

LoL Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 22, 2022 – 21:00 CEST

Last season’s champion is going through a very difficult period. After starting the league with 5 wins in 5 games, G2 Esports has suffered four consecutive losses due to internal problems and has been unable to qualify for the playoffs. 

With only 4 weeks left in the league, they have no choice but to win against Astralis. The LEC hasn’t had a playoffs without G2 for a very long time, and I think the organization will make a comeback this year and get the wins they need. The reason I say this is because G2 has been picking up victories where they need to for years.

Rogue vs Fnatic

Predictions: Rogue to win

Odds: 1.58

LoL Betting Site: Odds provided by Cobra Casino Esports

When: July 22, 2022 – 23:00 CEST

The match of the LEC Summer 2022 Week 5 is between Rogue and Fnatic. With a 7-win streak, Rogue is looking to improve their performance. Fnatic, on the other hand, wants to get a win in a tough match and increase their chances for playoffs.

It’s sure to be a great matchup. However, Rogue, who is in full form, is in better shape than their opponent. They are back to their performances of the past seasons, when they were undefeated. Fnatic, on the other hand, suffered two unexpected losses after a two-week break.

For those who don’t want to predict sides, the first tower pick stat stands out. Rogue managed to get the first tower in 88.9% of their matches.
