ESB’s free League of Legends betting predictions for Saturday, January 15, focus on three LoL European Championship (LEC) 2022 Spring bouts. Here are our selections for Rogue vs Misfits Gaming, G2 Esports vs Astralis, and Team Vitality vs Fnatic, with top odds courtesy of BetOnline.


Rogue enter the 2022 season without two key players from 2021 in jungler Kacper “Inspired” Słoma and ADC Steven “Hans sama” Liv. The duo left for North America and got replaced by DWG KIA jungler Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong and Team Vitality’s ADC Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos.

It’s hard to say how the new arrivals will do, but Malrang has the potential to be an S-tier player, and if he can deliver, Rogue will be a scary team. However, unlike Rogue, who have a solid upside, Misfits Gaming’s ceiling with their new roster doesn’t seem to be that high.

The additions of jungler Lucjan “Shlatan” Ahmad, ADC Matúš “Neon” Jakubčík, and support, Mertai “Mersa” Sari, seem decent on paper. Still, there are too many question marks about how the rookies will perform at the highest level.

Rogue’s success will heavily depend on Malrang who will need time to adapt, so it might be risky taking their side so early into the season. But at the offered LoL betting odds, the former LEC finalists are worth a shot.

Astralis have built a new roster around mid laner Oliver “Dajor” Ryppa, who will play a crucial role in Astralis’ success this term. But for the team to achieve any meaningful success, top laner Matti “WhiteKnight” Sormunen will have to be a solid weakside player to enable mid and bot to carry.

We don’t expect Astralis to win the LEC title, but if they execute their plan efficiently, Astralis should be able to hold their own against the top teams, including G2 Esports.

G2 Esports freshened up its LoL division and took a shot with a new bottom lane duo, which should be serviceable, but we don’t expect any great things from them at the start. But still, G2 Esports are priced as $1.45 favourites for this bout, which doesn’t make sense and likely has to do with the brand recognition.

Admittedly, Rasmus “caPs” Borregaard Winther can solo-carry his side, but at $2.66, the value is with Astralis.

Team Vitality have formed a new European superteam of some of the best Western players and enter the 2022 LEC season as the team to beat. As a LEC fan, it’s hard not to be excited about how far this team can go, and it wouldn’t be too far from the truth to say that Vitality can compete for the LoL World Championship title if things go right.

Fnatic freshened up its LoL roster with three new players in top laner Martin “Wunder” Nordahl Hansen, jungler Iván “Razork” Martín Díaz, and mid laner Marek “Humanoid” Brázda to form a lineup that looks much stronger than the 2021 roster. But there are many unknowns, mainly how the new faces will gel with Fnatic’s bottom lane and whether Wunder will find his pre-2021 form.

The esports betting sites have priced Fnatic as the favourites for this match, which may be fair, but not at the offered LoL betting odds. That is not to say that Fnatic can’t defeat Vitality, but in our book, this match should be much closer to 50/50. At $2.15, it’s tough to pass on Team Vitality to win the first LEC derby of the season.
