LCS Betting

The LCS is often one of the most volatile Esports scenes in the world and as such can be quite lucrative if the right bet is made. In recent history some bookies supplement the possible losses with some less than favorable odds but Immortals and 100 Thieves often get odds that are a little too high for their own good and with TL looking to make a come back it is possible to find some odds fitting of that story line if you bet behind them! Look out for our weekly Previews that will highlight our favorite bets for that week!

Where to watch the LCS?

The Summer Split will be broadcast on Twitch and YouTube and as we are anticipating the entire split to be played remotely you’ll feel right at home with the broadcast crew on either network!

Expectations

Favorites

Cloud9

Cloud9 destroyed the competition last time around in the Spring Split and with so few changes to rosters during the off season there is very little reason to believe that will change come Summer. Cloud9 are the strongest looking team since Team Liquid’s 4 tournament winning spree and as such should be favored to win the whole thing yet again.

Team SoloMid

Our Power Rankings are a little up and down on all the teams but realistically TSM has been a name brand synonymous with top 3 for the entire existence of the LCS and as such with their acquisition of Doublelift should be expected to make that top cut by the end of the season.

Challengers

Team Liquid

Everyone is looking for Team Liquid to make a return to form and while they may not challenge C9 for the title they certainly could challenge for that third or even second seed to Worlds as long as they can figure out their shortcomings from Spring, which were ultimately more than just one player. 

100 Thieves

Papa Smithy is making waves with his squad that reminds us of the initial 100T squad that went to Worlds in 2017. Ssumday looks in form and they’re my personal favorites to make that third seed this time around.

Underdogs.

FlyQuest

FLY made a statement last season and so long as they find themselves in the winner’s bracket they will be a contender for Worlds this time around and with Solo looking to be in fine form and maybe even the best Top Laner in NA he could certainly lead this team to glory.

Evil Geniuses

A lot of us are forgetting that they finished second in the regular season last split after tiebreakers. Which would mean that in theory they stand an even better chance at making it out with their pickup of Huni, but none of their 3 big name Imports are North American citizens yet and as such could mean we see a lot of the same from EG which is not good when Meta’s change.
