LEC Summer Split 2020 Week 6 Preview
We took some time off but so did the LEC so we didn't miss much with this league, but we are back and the table is still pretty jaw ...
LEC started last week with as many as three match days of the super weekend! Only two teams, Fnatic and Rogue, survived the opening week with no losses so the league average is very flat as usual. The disappointments of the opening week were definitely Origen and G2 Esports which both lost twice. Also raised to one of the big challenger favorites, Misfits Gaming has only garnered one win, although Misfits faced three absolute top teams during the opening week. The second week returns to the normal pace of two match days and thus each team plays twice. It’s time to anticipate the matches of the second week and offer the best betting tips! More information about the league can be found on the events page.
The first good betting tip is available on the opening day of the week! Both of the teams started their season quite brilliantly. In total, these teams have lost only once. Rogue’s program was easy and grabbed 3-0 a week against the weakly started Misfits and tail duo, Excel and Schalke. Meanwhile, in addition to Schalke, Vitality grabbed the scalp tremendously from G2 Esports. Its match against Fnatic was also smooth for a long time. This is where the two big winners of the early summer meet and it is very difficult to predict the winner. For this reason, I recommend betting on Team Vitality, which Betway currently gives a odds of 2.55. When you have more than two and a half times the money in a very equal battle, you should grab it!
If in the first match two winners met, then now we are facing one of the favorites who has underperformed and the tail-headed team who has played brilliantly. SK overthrew Origen and Schalke, crashing only MAD Lions. Misfits was the biggest threat to the top three in my papers, but it began its season slowly, losing to Fnatic and Rogue. The only victory came from Origen. Even a week ago I would have given this match 100-0 to the Misfits, but now the percentages are MUCH closer to each other. SK Gaming’s winnings are given a odds of about 2.4 and that’s a bit of a limit on whether it’s recommended. On the other hand, if you compare it to the last three matches on Friday, there is more to play in that than in them. Maybe you should apply for a live bet on this pair of matches and hope for good odds, as well as a comeback for one of the teams.
Schalke have been absolutely miserable in the first matches of the season and will soon be approaching the time when changes can be seen in the line-up. The G2 has also started weakly relative to its level, but when the starting level is from a different planet relative to Schalke, there is not much excitement in this match. The G2 is a really clear favorite.
Excel wasn’t included in the playoffs in my papers, but nonetheless, it managed to disappoint during the opening week. The saddest thing is that it lost to MAD Lions and Rogue, who are its big threaters to the last playoff spots. Origen also started its season really slowly, losing to Misfits and SK Gaming, but at the same time it still won the G2. So a very volatile start for one of my favorites. It gives Excel a better chance than ever to grab Origen’s scalp, even though I myself can’t believe it even on Origen’s “bad day”. I think Origen will start their rise from this match.
Friday’s only encounter with the top teams is probably not worth the wait and leap. Fnatic has shown time and time again the place of the closet to the young lions and when you look at the level of Fnatic at the moment then the same can be expected again. Fnatic may not have been a completely unstoppable force yet, but in the name of honesty, it is probably the team in the strongest mood at the LEC right now. If the MAD Lions had encountered Fnatic a week ago, then the situation could have been different but now Fnatic has gotten up to speed and MAD Lions is not stopping this train.
Before the start of the season lifted Excel clearly above the SK Gaming, but after seeing the opening weekend's matches I have turned my snowmobile. SK Gaming has completely surprised me and I believe SK has currently taken the position of Excel as one of the worst threats to the playoff game favorites. Excel, on the other hand, deserves its place on the tail of the series with last week’s performances. SK Gaming is grabbing a win for himself and is leaving for the third week with great setups when compared to the advances.
The misfits have been weak, but not so weak that Schalke would be a threat to it. I called SK the poorest team in the series in my anticipation, but yes, the title must now belong to Schalke. There is little else to be said about this match other than that the Misfits will have to win this or its season will start to flow in a frightening direction. However, I have full credit for Misfits in this match pair.
A much smoother pair of matches than I would have bet before. The MAD Lions have kept their strong level, but at the same time Vitality has taken big leaps forward. The MAD Lions are still a favorite in the encounter between the two young lineups, but not so much that there would be no excitement left in the match. A brave player grabs the 2.55 odds offered for a Team Vitality win at Betway, but if you want to play it safe you should.
The league’s biggest favorite is the middle caste team battling for the last playoff spot. This was the preview a week ago. Now G2 is 1-2 and Rogue is 3-0. Admittedly, Rogue’s schedule has been easier and that the G2 is still one of the biggest favorites, as these weak weekends have been seen before. The G2 tends to come back even stronger from failed weeks and is a pre-favorite for this match. However, Rogue's style of play is called a weaker version of G2, but now that G2 itself has played weaker, it may open the door to Rogue's surprise. Rogue's surprise has also been put at almost three times the odds and considering that Rogue's surprise wouldn't even be revolutionary in any way, there's a chance to get good money from there for the Midsummer weekend.
The week culminates in a legendary second-state battle. Although this time one of the teams is probably the strongest team in the league and the other drained into the middle caste battle for the playoffs. Somehow I still can expect a good match between the two. At least it’s sure that the fans on both teams are loud and the players want to cover each other. Fnatic is going to the match as a big favorite, but Origen needs wins so it has certainly invested in preparing to face Fnatic. Origen is a challenging opponent for Fnatic in that Fnatic cannot take full advantage of its potentially strongest area, a wide range of different champions. Nukeduck in particular has become known over the years as a very versatile player and the same goes for other Origen players. On the other hand, the fact that both teams can play almost anything can offer viewers a really awesome off-meta battle. Either way, this is definitely the right way to culminate in another week!
