The stakes for this event are clear and ripe for League of Legends betting – apart from the 1,000,000,000 Vietnamese Dong of prize money, the main prize here are the top 2 teams earning their way to Worlds 2023 Play-In.

VCS Summer Playoffs 2023 Predictions

GAM Esports vs Saigon Buffalo

VCS Summer Playoffs 2023 Betting Preview

In this first match-up, we have a one-sided affair between GAM Esports and Saigon Buffalo according to League of Legends betting sites.

For those unaware, GAM Esports is one of the most dominant teams in Vietnam, recently placing first in the VCS Summer Regular Season and earning their sixth VCS win.

In comparison, Saigon Buffalo is also a reputable team, but are not at the level of GAM Esports.

Bearing this in mind, GAM Esports are strongly favoured here.

  • Predictions: GAM Esports (3-0) Saigon Buffalo
  • Odds: GAM Esports Outright Win (-667), Saigon Buffalo Outright Win (+399)
  • Betting Site: GG.Bet

Team Whales vs Team Secret

Meanwhile, the other Upper Bracket match is rather contested.

While yes, Team Whales are favoured following a surprising second place finish at the VCS Summer Regular Season, Team Secret are definitely no slouch.

As the fifth seed from the regular season, Team Secret have already surprised the community with a win over CERBERUS in the previous round, a team they weren’t favoured against.

However, it’s unlikely Team Secret will manage to work some magic once again – Team Whales are favoured.

  • Predictions: Team Whales (3-1) Team Secret
  • Odds: Team Whales Outright Win (-213), Team Secret Outright Win (+157)
  • Betting Site: GG.Bet
