Best Worlds 2020 Semifinals Bets

Yicun Liu/Riot Games

After intense quarterfinal matches, just four teams remain at the League of Legends 2020 World Championship. Favorites Top Esports and DAMWON Gaming advanced as expected, while Suning and G2 Esports made their way through uncertain matchups.

One of the biggest surprises of the playoffs so far came in the form of Top’s performance as they barely squeezed past Fnatic, having to overcome a 2-0 deficit to come back and win the series 3-2. Korean champions DAMWON, meanwhile, breezed through DRX and after Top’s shaky showing became the favorite to win Worlds.

The other matchups also went quite unexpectedly, with Suning dispatching JD Gaming in a decisive 3-1 despite coming in as the underdog and G2 dominating Gen.G in what was set to be an even match.

European favorites G2 will now face DAMWON in the semifinals, with both teams coming in hot off 3-0 victories. Meanwhile, Suning will face Top Esports in a Chinese derby that may be closer than many initially expected.

With just two matches coming up, the wagering selection is slightly limited, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t some amazing picks regardless.

Before we dive into the games, make sure to familiarize yourself with the teams playing, their odds, and how to bet on LoL Worlds 2020. And, let’s get into the best semifinals picks:

G2 Esports vs DAMWON Gaming - October 24

It’s a battle of regional champions and undefeated playoff teams as G2 faces off against DAMWON in the opening match of the semifinals.

DAMWON enters as the heavy favorite to win it at -238 on BetOnline, having initially come into Worlds as one of the favorites and so far performing up to expectations, dropping just one map in nine.

G2 did have a shaky start, coming second in its group after two unexpected losses, but has since picked up form and has dropped just two maps in nine. They’re definitely in with a shot and with a +102 moneyline on BetOnline the bookmakers certainly aren’t counting them out.

When it comes to the picks, this match is definitely the more complicated of the two. The teams have almost opposite play styles, with G2 favoring aggression and explosiveness, while DAMWON favors a slow, controlled match.

Even when considering the overall result, you’d have to favor DAMWON in the skill department. However, G2 has pulled off unexpected wins before, and are “Korea specialists” in that this roster has never been defeated by a Korean team at Worlds playoffs. As such, either team could realistically win, so the best bet is to look toward the props.

Keep in mind that even the props aren’t that safe themselves, as things like kills will very likely change from map to map, depending on who controls each game. But there are a few props that we can still wager on.

To Kill First Dragon is a great prop we can follow for each map. So far, DAMWON has killed the first dragon eight times, losing out on it just once, while G2 has killed the first dragon just twice in nine matches. The trend should continue here and you can find DAMWON To Kill First Dragon at around -200 per map on BetOnline.

Our next pick is quite a bit riskier, but also fairly likely to come through. Both teams are strong and both are coming in hot off 3-0 wins, so I expect this to be a very close affair. This match could very well go all the way to five maps and at odds of +184 for OVER 4.5 maps, there is incredible value in backing a close contest.

Best Bets: DWG To Kill First Dragon | OVER 4.5 Maps 

Top Esports vs Suning - October 25

The second semifinal match is set to be a Chinese derby, as LPL champions Top Esports takes on third seed Suning.

Initial thoughts point straight to a Top win, but considering their previous match against Fnatic and Suning’s performance against JD Gaming, this could really go either way. Top is one of the world’s best and dominated Suning in the LPL with an overall score of 5-0, winning flawlessly both in the regular season and in the summer playoffs.

However, it was much the same for JD, who also dominated Suning, and we saw how everything turned around in their quarterfinal match. Therefore, despite decent moneyline odds of -164 on BetOnline for Top, this one will also have to go straight to the props.

Luckily, things are a bit more straightforward here. Despite coming from the notoriously aggressive LPL, both teams have been fairly tame in terms of kills so far. Top has only seen three of their 11 matches go over 27 kills, while five of Suning’s 11 have gone over 27 kills. Not only that but in Top’s case, two of those were against Unicorns of Love, who basically just ran into them over and over, even when it made no sense to fight.

We can expect to see more of the same tame games here and the best bet is definitely to back an UNDER on kills for every map. There are a few choices on BetOnline, but UNDER 27.5 kills at -128 looks to be the best choice. The matches should see a fair number of kills, but it’s very unlikely they’ll reach 28.

Best Bet: UNDER 27.5 Kills
