Top eSports Betting Picks for the Week – July 8th Edition
League of Legends LCK 2019
Friday, July 12
- Griffin / Gen.G
Gen.G is 4-0-4. They haven’t played horribly during the League of Legends Champions Korea summer season. They did beat Damwon, Jin Air Green Wings, Hanwha Life, and Afreeca Freecs. They could be up against it here, though.
Griffin is the top squad at LCK Summer 2019. Griffin has a 7-0-1 record. The only Champions Korea loss during the summer was to Sandbox back on June 12. Griffin should roll in this match with Gen.G looking to their Sunday battle versus Hanwha for a weekend victory.
eSports Betting Pick: Griffin
- KT Rolster / SK Telecom T1
Something is up with the KT Rolsters. The team hasn’t performed well at all during the Champions Korea Summer Season. They beat Jin Air Green Wings in their first summer session battle. They upset Gen.G on June 16. But outside of those two victories, they’ve been awful, losing their other 6 LCK summer matches.
SK Telecom dominated KT Rolster 2:0 on June 27. There is no reason to believe Telecom doesn’t dominate the Rolsters again. SK will be favored big time in this. Sometimes, it’s okay to take the easy money instead of always looking for a price.
eSports Betting Pick: SK Telecom
Sunday, July 14
- Afreeca Freecs / Griffin
After losing 1:2 to top team on the standings Griffin, the Freecs won 3 in a row versus SK Telecom, Hanwha Life, and KingZone Dragon X. They then lost 3 in a row to Sandbox, Gen.G. and Damwon.
They’re back on the winning track after beating KT Rolster 2:0 on June 29. Afreeca Freecs is the only squad that has beaten Griffin during the summer season. Can they repeat the feat on Sunday? They should offer decent odds to do so. Taking a swing on the Freecs to make it two in a row versus the top squad at LCK this summer makes sense.
eSports Betting Pick: Afreeca Freecs
- Hanwha Life / Gen.G
Hanwha Life is 2-6 straight up during Champions Korea Summer 2019. They’ve only beaten KT Rolster and Jin Air GreenWings this season. The last time they faced Gen.G., they lost 1:2.
The score gives Hanwha a shot, but they haven’t played well enough to pull off the upset. Gen.G is better than their current .500 record. They should make up for the Thursday loss versus Griffin with a win here.
eSports Betting Pick: Gen.G
