With the 2020 LEC Summer European Championship heading into its second week of action, it’s time to find out which teams are in action and which ones are offering the best value against their League of Legends betting odds. With a big, five matchups going down on Sunday, June 14, let’s find out where the best value lies in three of those pairings this weekend .
League of Legends LEC Summer Split June 14th Matches
MAD Lions 1.2 vs. SK Gaming 4.2
MAD Lions got back in the win column following four straight losses by beating Origen 1:0 in their EU Community Showdown paring on June 3. MAD Lions have split their last 24 matches evenly over the course of the last year.
SK Gaming had their three-match winning streak snapped in their 2:1 loss against Fnatic in their EU Community showdown on Wednesday. Unfortunately, SK gaming has been limited to just 13 wins over their last 40 matches over the course of the last year.

MAD Lions might be the favorite in this matchup, but they haven’t been playing very well and SK Gaming looks like they could pull off the upset here. Yes, Mad Lions did win both head-to-head meetings in this rivalry, but each victory was a narrow 1:0 win, so it’s not like they dominated SK Gaming. Simply put, I say, take a shot on the underdogs in this one!
Pick: SK Gaming 2:1
Team Vitality 5.0 vs. G2 Esports 1.15
Team Vitality has lost three straight including a 1:0 loss against Misfits on June 3. To make matters worse, Team Vitality has gone an uninspiring 10-29 over their last 39 matches over the course of the last year. G2 Esports had their nine game winning streak snapped in their hard-fought 1:0 loss against Rogue in their EU Community Showdown matchup on May 27.

While G2 had their winning ways snapped the last time out, make no mistake about it, they are by far, the better team in this matchup. G2 has won two straight and four of the last five meetings in this rivalry. With that said, I am genuinely expecting G2 to absolutely cruise to victory in this mismatch of a matchup.
Pick: G2 Esports 3:1
Fnatic 1.18 vs. Excel Sports 4.5
Fnatic is on fire, having won five straight matches and seven of their last eight overall, including a narrow, 2:1 win over SK Gaming League of legends team in their EU Community Showdown 2020 playoff matchup on Wednesday. Fnatic has won a stupendous 40 of 56 matches (72%) over the course of the last year. Excel had their two-match winning streak snapped in their 2:0 shutout loss against SK Gaming on June 6. Making matters worse is the fact that Excel has managed to win just 13 of 38 matches (35%) over the course of the last year.
- Date & Time: Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET
Fnatic has won five straight in this rivalry with all five victories being identical 1:0 victories. These two teams are polar opposites with Fnatic being a legitimate title contender and Excel being nothing more than mere pretenders. Fnatic wins emphatically.
Pick: Fnatic 2:0
