LEC Summer Groups 2023 Predictions

Excel vs G2 Esports

LEC Power Rankings G2 Esports

Excel have certainly been trending upwards in the LEC 2023 season. After earning an impressive third-place finish in the LEC Summer Regular Season, they then topped their Group.

Unfortunately for them, they’re going up against the one team that has stood on top of the competition all split long. Indeed, G2 Esports are the favourites to win this tournament, starting with thie opening match with the LoL odds strongly in their favour.

  • Predictions: Excel (0-3) G2 Esports
  • Odds: Excel Outright Win (5.80), G2 Esports Outright Win (1.10)
  • Betting Site: Thunderpick

Team Heretics vs Fnatic

Meanwhile, this next match is a tighter affair as outlined by League of Legends betting sites. All season long, Team Heretics and Fnatic have been closely ranked, with Fnatic edging them out at every instance.

Specifically, in the Regular Season, Fnatic placed second while Team Heretics placed fourth. Both teams would then go on to finish second in their respective Groups.

While both had similar performances at LEC Summer Groups, the esports odds tip in favour of Fnatic due to their stronger roster on paper, their better performances and their legacy within the LEC as one of the top organizations. 

  • Predictions: Team Heretics (1-3) Fnatic
  • Odds: Team Heretics Outright Win (3.40), Fnatic Outright Win (1.26)
