The 10th edition of the European Masters Summer 2022 will be taking place from August 24 to September 25. There is going to be a play-in group stage that will include best-of-one matches, followed by a play-in knockout stage featuring best-of-three matches, a main group stage, knockouts and a final. The semifinals and the finals will be best-of-five matches.
The next month promises to be a festival for League of Legends fans, which makes the EU Masters title odds just as exciting. There’s a clear favorite heading into the tournament with LDLC OL (+200) but they will be facing some stern competition from the likes of Team BDS Academy (+475) and Heretics (+550).
It seems like there is a large U.K. and Nordic contingent heading into this tournament, but there are many other teams from across Europe that will be taking part. Fans can view the matches on the EU Masters Twitch channel, which should help bettors when wagering on teams.

Favorites To Win The EU Masters 2022 Title
LDLC OL (+200)
LDLC OL heads into this tournament with great odds of +200 despite falling short during the finals of the same event in the spring against Karmine Corp. Part of the reason they are the favorites is because Karmine Corp will not be making it to the event, having won it the last three times. They surprisingly were on a bad run of form, which prevented them from qualifying for the EU Masters.
With one of their greatest adversaries out of the way, this is LDLC OL’s best chance to win the EU Masters.
Team BDS Academy (+475)
Team BDS Academy did not get out of the group stages last time out but with quite a few changes to the roster are looking much better now. They were excellent in the month of July, not losing a single game, but have had some trouble recently, losing their last three LFL 2022 summer playoffs matches.
That’s part of the reason their odds to win it are a bit lower. They’ll be hoping that they can regenerate the form of July, because that sort of form would make them worthy contenders for the EU Masters title.
Value Picks To Win The EU Masters 2022
Team Heretics have seen their odds rise because of excellent form in recent weeks. They’ve lost once in their last seven LVP SL 2022 summer playoffs matches. Most of the roster was formed in January this season, and they look like they could do some serious damage heading into this tournament. The Spanish outfit looks really sharp and momentum is key when going into events like this. The feeling and vibe around the team is great at the moment.
Giants are another SuperLiga side who have made a lot of changes to their roster this season but are in a bit of patchy form heading into the EU Masters 2022. After showing lots of promise in July, they’ve looked a bit inconsistent, and it seems like the timing of the drop in form might affect their chances heading into the EU Masters 2022.
With the margin for error very low and teams around them looking a bit sharper, it might be too big an ask to expect them to be serious contenders for the EU Masters 2022 title odds.
Unicorns of Love (+800)
Unicorns of Love seem to have hit form at the right time, winning their last three matches as they head into this tournament. By no means a heavy favorite, the momentum and a quarterfinal finish in the competition last time out means that they can give anyone a run for their money when they are at their best. They won’t have Karmine Corp get in their way either, so keep an eye on them.
Betting Strategy for Winners of the EU Masters 2022
With so many great teams, it’s always hard to pick one, but Karmine Corp’s unavailability will make every team believe that this is their chance at glory. No one will be more aware of the opportunity on hand than LDLC OL.
They are certainly the safest pick; however, the likes of Heretics and Unicorns of Love are heading into this with just the sort of form that can see them go on a deep run, so wagering on them could see you rake in big rewards.
