eSports Betting: League of Legends LEC Summer Split July 3rd matches

Posted by Henry Watkins on July 2, 2020 in

The Summer Season is in full swing across the globe, as the best teams in the world of League of Legends compete for some amazing prizes. The biggest reward of them all is that the winners of all the different regions will be headed to the 2020 World Championships, so there is certainly a little bit of added pressure to be found this season. The LEC, which is the European version of the League of Legends, had played 7 rounds, with 11 more still to come before the end of the regular season. it’s a jam-packed weekend schedule to come, with 5 games set for Friday. Let’s take a closer look at those matches so you can make your bets against their League of Legends odds.

League of Legends LEC Summer Split July 3rd matches

Excel Esports Vs Team Vitality

If either of these two teams have playoff aspirations this season, they need to find a way to come up with a win here. Things are a little more dire for Ecxel, as they have started the season at just 2-5, which has them sitting second bottom of the league. Team Vitality are just one win better off at 3-4, but another win here would throw the right into the middle of what is a tight race for playoff spots. I am leaning towards Team Vitality here.

Schalke 04 Vs MAD Lions

This looks to be about as lopsided an affair as you could possibly ask for. MAD Lions have emerged as the favorite to win the LEC after jumping out to an 6-1 record. To say that Schalke have been poor is putting things rather mildly, as they have dropped each of their first 7 games. It would be an upset of epic proportions of Schalke were to win here, which is just not going to happen.

SK Gaming Vs Fnatic

As we mentioned a little earlier, the middle of the LEC league standings is about as tight as it gets, which makes this one a little tougher to predict. SK Gaming are in a 4-way tie for 3rd with a 4-3 record, while Fnatic are sitting just off the pace at 3-4. There are just 6 playoff spots available, so Fnatic do not want to fall to much further behind, even with so many games still to play. Fnatic beat SK twice last season, so let’s take them to win this one.

Rogue Vs Origen

These are a pair of teams who could well be pushing for a top spot by the time this season is said and done. It is Rogue who are in the higher spot at the moment, sitting in second with a record of 5-2. Origen are right on their heels, though, and are in the pack of teams that are sitting at 4-3. This is another tough one to call, but Rogue look like a championship candidate this season, which is why I am siding with them here.

G2 Esports Vs Misfit Gaming

These are two more teams who are caught up in that pack of teams sitting at 4-3, but we will begin to see some separation happen this weekend. It’s always tough to make a pick when you have two teams with the exact same record, but since Misfit Gaming won both games against G2 in the Spring Season, it might not be a bad idea to go that way again.
