Fnatic vs DetonatioN FocusMe

Predictions: Fnatic to win

League of Legends Words Odds: 1.19

When: September 30, 2022 – 22:00 CEST

Fnatic, the undefeated leaders of Group A after the first day, will take on DetonatioN FocusMe looking to continue their streak. They started the tournament with some bad luck, but won their first two matches thanks to a great start from Upset and the rest of the team. Fnatic is in better form than expected and is currently the favorite in Group A.

DFM will have to replicate their surprise results from MSI 2021 here. Otherwise, it is very difficult for them to get out of the group. Especially the crushing defeat against LOUD on the first day not only demoralized the team but also got them off to a bad start.

Evil Geniuses vs LOUD

LOUD showed two different faces to the audience on the very first day. First, they suffered a heavy loss against Beyond Gaming and then they managed to defeat DetonatioN FocusMe in a heavyweight match. The Brazilian representative was predicted to be one of the average teams of the group. The first results reinforced that.

The North American team, on the other hand, started the tournament with a defeat. Facing Fnatic in the opening match, the team was unable to dominate their opponent and ended the first day with a single loss. Now it’s time for them to get a win against LOUD.

Saigon Buffalo vs Isurus

Predictions: Saigon Buffalo to win

Odds:  1.37

Betting Site: Odds provided by

When: October 1, 2022 – 00:00 CEST

In the opening match of Worlds 2022, Isurus gave MAD Lions a hard time at times, but lost their first match as they were unable to control the entire game and use their occasional advantages to get the big lenses. Saigon Buffalo, unlike their opponents, defeated Istanbul Wildcats in their only game on the first day to earn 1 point.

Considering their performances in their local leagues and the quality of their league, Saigon Buffalo is one step ahead of their opponent. Still, this match will not be easy for both teams.

Evil Geniuses vs Beyond Gaming

Predictions: MAD Lions to win

Odds:  2.70

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.Bet

When: October 1, 2022 – 02:00 CEST

This is a very important match that will decide the fate of both teams. A loss for Evil Geniuses will make things a bit more difficult for them. Beyond Gaming, on the other hand, will breathe a huge sigh of relief with their second win. I know, most people are predicting Evil Geniuses to win. However, after the first matches, I think the tide has turned in favor of Beyond Gaming.

I’m going to make a surprise prediction and say that Beyond Gaming will win this match.
