Friday’s list of LEC games is packed with mismatches as the difference between the best and the rest starts to widen. Here’s a breakdown of how to handle this schedule.
G2 Esports + Origen (1.31)
These two have been the form teams in the LEC. G2 are sitting atop the LEC standings with a 13-3 games record, including six straight wins. Caps and Perkz have been in astounding offensive form for G2 right through this split. Against a struggling Schalke team, it’s hard to see how G2 will stumble.
Origen are chasing G2 for the top spot. They are currently tied for second in the split with a 12-4 record, including three consecutive wins. Origen are also up against a stumbling opponent in Excel Esports. Combined odds of 1.31 for a double seems like a decent choice.
Fnatic are the other team in the LEC that will always be hard to bet against. They have been terrific through the season, leading them to 12-4, tied for second along with Origen. Mad Lions have been in good form, but they might not have the same skill to compete against the might, experience and consistency of this Fnatic team.
Rekkles has been in almost unbelievable form for Fnatic this split. He has the highest kill rate (5.25) and KDA (10.12) for any player in the entire European Championship. Mad Lions are no pushovers but that also means the odds will reflect that, giving you an opportunity to capitalise on that.
SK Gaming (5.20)
If you’re looking for a punt in a schedule of mismatches, this might be it. Rogue have the skill and depth to blow away SK Gaming with ease, so it might be wise not to stake too much on this result. However, SK Gaming are due a win. They are on a 10-game losing streak, desperate to end their poor form.
Rogue are tied for fifth in the LEC, while SK Gaming are ninth. All these differences mean the payout on SK Gaming is significant. Crownshot will be SK Gaming’s chance: he is their most aggressive player with an average of 2.44 kills per game.
