  • BookMaker.eu The LCK Summer Split is nearing the halfway point of the regular season. Only five of the ten teams will make the playoffs, and the regular season is extremely important in Korea due to the gauntlet-style format of the playoffs. Since the team that finishes in first place gets an automatic bye into the Summer Split Finals, there will be a lot of people watching the outcome of DRX’s series with DAMWON Gaming on Saturday.... 

  • BookMaker.eu We have seen some separation in the LCS standings over the last couple weeks. The teams that were the favorites in the preseason have distanced themselves from their counterparts, but Cloud9 remain in a class of their own. C9 are in the process of putting together the best year for any team in North American League of Legends history, and they will look to go undefeated through the first round robin against the only team that defeated them in the regular season in the spring.... 

  • BookMaker.eu There is a logjam behind undefeated Cloud9 in the LCS. Five teams are tied for second place at 4-2, but that mess is sure to be sorted out somewhat with the results of this week’s matches. We’ll see whether or not teams like Counter Logic Gaming are for real in Week 4, and the four teams at the bottom will look to make a move upwards in the standings.

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been a crazy start to the LEC Summer Split. No one would have believed that MAD Lions were all alone in first place with Rogue in sole possession of second place a game behind them, while Fnatic was under .500 and currently out of the playoff picture. The seven-time champions have lost four straight games after a 3-0 start in Week 1, and their failure to beat any of the other top teams has set off alarm bells throughout the region.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Everyone else is playing for second place in the LCS. Cloud9 is easily the best team once again through the first four games of the Summer Split. They are the only undefeated team with a 4-0 record, and their gold differential per minute of +482 is off the charts. C9 won’t play on Saturday though, giving other teams the opportunity to enjoy the spotlight.

  • BookMaker.eu Order has been restored in the LEC after a wild first week. Five of the six playoff teams from the Spring Split have winning records, and Misfits Gaming isn’t far behind at 2-3. In an interesting twist, all six of the teams over .500 will square off against another team with a winning record this Friday, while the four teams with losing records will look to get needed victories against fellow bottom feeders.
    ... 

  • BookMaker.eu We saw some very surprising results in the first week of the LEC Summer Split. Defending champions G2 Esports were stunned by both Origen and Team Vitality, and they were heavy favorites in both of those games. Origen went on to lose to SK Gaming and Misfits Gaming, so there are some real questions about those two teams after the first three games of the season. There are no questions about Fnatic currently after their 3-0 start, but they will have to take on MAD Lions and Origen this week.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The chalk largely held up in the first week of the 2020 LCS Summer Split. Cloud9 picked up right where they left off in the spring, and Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid also went unbeaten through their first two games. There is still a chasm between Cloud9 and everyone else, but the latter two teams are looking to close the gap. Team SoloMid was the other team expected to challenge, yet they need to go back to the drawing board after getting blasted by Team Liquid in their first game.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The LCS returns to Summoner’s Rift on Friday night. After dismal ratings with putting the LCS on Monday night, the league is hoping to draw more eyeballs to League of Legends in North America with two games every Friday night in the 2020 LCS Summer Split. To that end, there will be a rematch of the Spring Split Finals on Friday as Cloud9 takes on FlyQuest in the second of two games. The most hyped game of the first week will certainly be Team Liquid vs. Team SoloMid on Saturday though.... 

  • BookMaker.eu There’s no doubt that G2 Esports are the team to beat coming into the 2020 LEC Summer Split. G2 have won the last three European titles, and they are far and away more talented than any other team in the region. They will kick off the Summer Split this Friday, June 12, when they face the team that gave them the most trouble in the spring, the MAD Lions. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu After putting together one of the best splits in the history of the LCS, Cloud9 is the odds-on favorite to win the 2020 LCS Summer Split. C9 went 17-1 in the regular season and only dropped one game in the postseason to finish the Spring Split with an overall record of 26-2. Team Liquid is still a contender after winning four straight splits prior to spring, while Team SoloMid made some big moves over the last month to try to get back to their winning ways.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The LEC Summer Split appears to be a two-horse race between G2 Esports and Fnatic yet again. These two organizations have combined to win all but one European League of Legends title, and they are the overwhelming favorites to win this year’s championship. G2 Esports have won the last three LEC titles, and they crushed Fnatic in the Spring Split Finals back in mid-April. That has led to the oddsmakers installing ... 

  • BookMaker.eu After going nearly a month without top tier League of Legends, fans of the most popular Esport are ready to see eight of the best teams in the world square off in the Mid-Season Cup. There is a lot of regional pride on the line between China and Korea, and what we have seen in Rift Rivals over the last few years has highlighted that this is the best regional rivalry in the world, sorry EU and NA. Unfortunately, there is no margin for error at this event since it will only last f... 

  • BookMaker.eu Fans of League of Legends from around the world were disappointed when it was announced there would be no Mid-Season Invitational, but the Mid-Season Cup is the next best thing. Four teams from China’s LPL will square off against four teams from Korea’s LCK for regional bragging rights in a four-day affair that will be jam packed with action. You can’t afford a bad game if you want to advance to the next round, so the pressure will be on all the teams involved in this competitio... 

  • BookMaker.eu While most Esports have been able to adapt to the challenges caused by the coronavirus, DotA 2 has struggled. There has only been one premier level tournament held so far this season, and The International might have to be cancelled too. This game’s tournaments are much more international than other games, and that has really affected teams and prize pools. That puts added emphasis on teams to perform well at ESL One Birmingham.... 

  • BookMaker.eu There will be no Mid-Season Invitational this year because of COVID-19, but the four best teams from China and Korea will take part in a tournament next week to give League of Legends fans some international action before the domestic leagues start back up in summer. The Mid-Season Cup will take place in late May over a span of four days, and there will be $600,000 and bragging rights at stake. A team from Korea or China has won each of the last seven World Championships, and while Korea has won more titles, China has defeated Korea in Rift Rivals in two of the three tournaments. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The CS:GO action keeps coming, and we will see the best teams in North America take part in DreamHack Masters Spring: North America next week. Gen. G is riding high after their surprising victory at ESL One: Road to Rio North America, but they aren’t one of the top five favorites entering this event. Instead, Team Liquid are the favorites per the Esports betting odds despite a lackluster performance during the Road to Rio qualifying tournament. We’ll see whether that’s wise or folly in a couple weeks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The best CS:GO teams in Europe have been at it for almost three weeks now. Qualifying for the ESL One: Road to Rio event has been intense. ESL One: Road to Rio is set to be the most lucrative tournament in the history of CS:GO when it takes place in six months with a prize pool of $2 million, and every team wants a piece of that pie. Most of the 16 European teams taking part in the qualifying will participate in the Rio major, but they will be slotted in at different levels depe... 

  • BookMaker.eu A previous champion is now guaranteed to win the CBLOL Spring Split title following the surprising results of the semifinals. Vivo Keyd was a considerable favorite over KaBum Esports in the first semifinal after finishing the season in first place. KaBuM needed to play an extra game in order to qualify for the postseason, but they proved they belong in the playoffs by smashing Vivo Keyd 3-0 last weekend. Meanwhile, Flamengo Esports took care of business against FURIA Uppercut, sweeping them 3-0 to force a rematch of the 2018 Split 2 Finals with KaBuM. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Dallas Empire won the last Call of Duty event two weeks ago, topping the Atlanta FaZe at COD League: Chicago. However, Atlanta is the favorite coming into this week’s event that was scheduled to be in Florida as the Empire and the Chicago Huntsmen aren’t slated to play. Those three teams have won four of the five tournaments played to date in the COD League, and they have advanced to the knockout rounds in every week of action. That makes this Atlanta’s tournament to lose, and a victory here... 

  • BookMaker.eu We are more than halfway through the Group Stage in the ESL One: Road to Rio qualifying events. The chalk has largely held up in both Europe and North America, but we have seen some top teams struggle. Evil Geniuses are in real trouble of not making it to the knockout rounds in NA, while Fnatic is now in a little bit of a pickle too in Europe. They will both be out to make statement victories this weekend. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu A first-time champion will be crowned in the LPL this weekend. JD Gaming and Top Esports are both debutantes to this stage. Both teams beat a former World Champion in the LPL Spring Split Semifinals to get to this point with JD Gaming knocking off FunPlus Phoenix and Top Esports defeating Invictus Gaming, and one of these teams will make history with their win. JD Gaming are the favorites after a stronger regular season and a more impressive victory in the semifinals, but Top Esports are a live underdog. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The two most storied organizations in League of Legends will meet in the 2020 Spring Split Finals this Saturday. T1 is the most successful team in the history of the Esport. They have won three World Championships, and they have the best player in the history of the game in Faker. As SK Telecom T1, they won six LCK titles, and they are looking to... 

  • BookMaker.eu The LEC has crowned its champion of the 2020 Spring Split after G2 Esports crushed Fnatic 3-0 on Sunday. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t League of Legends going on in Europe this week, as the stage has been set for the EU Masters. The lower tier national leagues on the continent will have their best teams compete against each other for pride and a significant prize pool, and this is the tournament to watch if you are interested in the next crop of future European standouts. German teams Schalke 04.EVO and Mousesports are the favorites to win this competition per the League of Legends betting odds, but squads from other countries are out to upend these two heavyweights. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The regular season of the LPL Spring Split will come to a close this Monday. It has been the most surreal split in the history of the league, as the outbreak of the coronavirus led to the season being suspended for nearly two months after the first week. Like other leagues around the world, the LPL moved to an online-only format, but the best teams in China have overcome that to sh...
