LEC Superweek Highlights LoL Action

MAD Lions LEC league of legends humanoid
Riot Games

It’s a huge week in competitive League of Legends as the summer seasons wrap up in both North America and Europe.

The LCS saw an incredible twist last week as Cloud9 lost both their games, dropping from the top spot for the first time since the start of the season. Meanwhile, MAD Lions and Rogue are tied for first in the LEC and will play the biggest match of their lives during the league’s “super week.”

There’s a ton for every team to play for and lots of variety for bettors looking to place wagers. If you want to learn about the game first, make sure to check out our guide to League of Legends. Now, let’s dive straight into some of the best matches this week.

DAMWON Gaming vs Gen.G - August 6

Before we get into the intense action in Europe and North America, we have to look at this match in the LCK.

Second-place DAMWON takes on third-place Gen.G in a vital match for both teams. After taking down DRX last week, DAMWON is in full pursuit of first place, with Gen.G hot on their heels. Just one or two wins could take either team to the summit and they’ll both be doing all they can to win.

It’s likely to be a very close match, but DAMWON should have the edge. They managed to take down the league leaders last week and are in incredible form, winning five in a row very convincingly. Gen.G have been very good themselves and only lost against the best teams, but DAMWON’s form is just too good to ignore. At -164 on BetOnline, they’re a great pick.

MAD Lions vs Rogue - August 7

We dive into the LEC with the biggest game of the week, MAD Lions vs Rogue. The league enters its last week with both of these teams tied at the top, making it quite likely that whoever wins here wins the summer split.

Both teams have had an amazing season, dropping just four games each and finding themselves at the top, much to the surprise of just about every League of Legends fan. MAD Lions enter as the favorites with odds of -147 on BetOnline, while Rogue sees odds of +111.

However, Rogue should be taking it here. While both teams have impressed, Rogue has been closing out the season in better form and has the more experienced roster. In a match with such high stakes, form and experience is key.

In the last few weeks, MAD Lions have dropped matches that many expected them to dominate, including losses to Vitality and Misfits, two teams that are likely missing out on the playoffs. Meanwhile, Rogue has been quite dominant, losing only to G2 Esports, who were expected to win the league, and the third-place SK Gaming.

It’ll no doubt be a close match, but Rogue should edge it out and considering the odds, they’re definitely a very good pick.

Origen vs SK Gaming - August 7

Origen takes on SK Gaming in another important LEC clash. Both teams have had very unexpected performances this season, with Origen heavily underperforming, while SK Gaming has unexpectedly climbed to third place.

SK has had a head-scratching two weeks as they defeated the two best teams in the league, MAD Lions and Rogue, but also lost to the worst side, Schalke 04 Esports. However, Origen has been a disaster, losing their last four games in a row, also including a match against Schalke.

The match is somewhat questionable considering the recent results, but clearly Origen has looked much worse off. SK Gaming has the quality to beat just about anyone and they should be able to do it against a lost Origen side. With odds of -125 on Betway, you can’t go wrong with an SK pick.

100 Thieves vs Dignitas - August 8

Moving on to the LCS, 100 Thieves take on Dignitas as they aim to push up the rankings. This is quite a straightforward match that should go the way of the favorites, 100 Thieves.

Dignitas has been disappointing all season, with only four wins in their 16 matches. 100 Thieves, meanwhile, have six wins and have been pushing teams to their limits all season, including defeating Cloud9 and breaking their nine-match win streak.

The match should really be quite one-sided and at odds of -200 on Betway, 100 Thieves is a solid choice.

Evil Geniuses vs 100 Thieves - August 9

The LCS also enters its final week and Evil Geniuses face off against 100 Thieves in an incredibly important match.

EG are currently in sixth, while 100 Thieves are in seventh place. The top six in the league enter the winner’s bracket in the playoffs, meaning they have to lose twice to be eliminated, while seventh and eighth go straight to the lower bracket and one loss means they’re out. With just one win separating these teams, this match could very well decide who goes to which bracket.

100 Thieves enter the match as underdogs, with +133 moneyline odds on BetOnline. However, they should be the ones taking it. They’ve been in decent form recently and most notably took out Cloud9 just a few weeks ago. Meanwhile, EG have dropped off after a strong start, and have looked poor recently, losing three in a row.

The pressure will be on for both teams, but their recent form should carry the Thieves through this one.

Fnatic vs SK Gaming - August 9

Last but not least comes Fnatic vs SK Gaming. Thanks to the league’s “super week,” this week sees five more games being played out and this one is likely to be the best of the bunch when it comes to wagering.

Fnatic enters the match as favorites, but SK has been on a giant-slaying mission over the last few weeks, taking out huge favorites in MAD Lions and Rogue. Meanwhile, Fnatic has been struggling, surprisingly winning just once in their last four matches. They’ve also stumbled throughout the season, even losing to the rock-bottom Schalke 04 Esports squad.

SK should be able to pull off another upset here and you can no doubt find some very good odds for the underdogs.

How To Bet League of Legends Moneyline

Moneyline bets are one of the most straightforward ways of betting and if you’ve done it in any other sport, it’s no different in League of Legends. Simply pick which team you think will win, place your bet and wait on the result.

These bets always feature a favorite and an underdog, represented by a (-) minus sign or (+) plus sign in American odds. When betting on the favorite, the (-) minus signifies what you would need to bet to win $100, while on the other hand, the (+) plus shows what you’d win if you bet $100.

It’s important to note that not all bookmakers currently offer League of Legends options, and while it is becoming more popular, many sportsbooks that have integrated esports may have a limited selection. However, we’ve made finding a good place to bet very easy, with a comprehensive list of the best online esports betting sites.

What Are League of Legends Prop Bets?

Prop bets, aka proposition bets, are as common in League of Legends as they are in any sport. Rather than betting on the outcome, you can bet on specific events in the game.

When it comes to League of Legends, this includes things like the number of games in a series, which team will win a specific game, first kills, towers, dragons or barons – really just about anything that will happen in the game.
