Esportbet is back with free League of Legends betting predictions for three LoL European Championship (LEC) 2022 Spring bouts on Saturday, January 22. Here are our selections for MAD Lions vs Astralis, Team BDS vs Rogue, and Team Vitality vs G2 Esports, with top odds courtesy of BetOnline.


MAD LIONS vs ASTRALIS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Lions -500 at BetOnline | Astralis +332 at BetOnline
When: January 22, 2022 at 18:00 CET

In the first week of LEC 2022 Spring, MAD Lions picked up two wins against the disorganised Team Vitality and G2 Esports but slipped against SK Gaming on Saturday. Astralis, meanwhile, lost all three of their bouts, going down to Misfits Gaming, G2 Esports, and Rogue.

MAD Lions played well in the opening week, so it’s fair to feel optimistic about the reigning LEC champions. But they don’t deserve to be priced at -500, which overrates them a bit.

MAD Lions have a solid roster, and you could argue that they are individually better than Astralis, but that doesn’t justify a bet on the favourites at the offered LoL betting odds. Astralis are still a bit iffy in execution, but this match is winnable for them.

TEAM BDS vs ROGUE LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: BDS +120 at BetOnline | Rogue -156.25 at BetOnline
When: January 22, 2022 at 19:00 CET

Rogue are not as strong as last season, but they are easily one of the top four teams in the league, whereas we have a hard time ranking Team BDS anywhere close to that. That’s not to say Team BDS can’t cause upsets, but we wouldn’t count on that happening too frequently until BDS show a bit more stability and a clearer game plan.

Still, BDS have shown some good qualities so far, and you could argue that they’re priced too generously at +194, but it’s hard to imagine them beating a stable team such as Rogue. The former LEC finalists might be weaker without Steven “Hans Sama” Liv and Kacper “Inspired” Słoma, but Markos “Comp” Stamkopoulos has been playing well, and we have no complaints about Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong either.

This could turn out to be a very chaotic game, but Rogue are better and should close it out with at least seven kills to spare.

Rogue -6.5 kills

TEAM VITALITY vs G2 ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Vitality -147.06 at BetOnline | G2 +113 at BetOnline
When: January 22, 2022 at 21:00 CET

The second week of LEC 2022 Spring will conclude with a clash between Team Vitality and G2 Esports. The Bees enter the match as -147.06 favourites, which is reasonable, but so far Vitality have looked better than G2 only on paper.

Vitality should find traction with time and arise as one of LEC’s top teams, but they’re still far from that. Individually, this is a powerful team, but as a unit, Vitality are still lacking.

G2 Esports are fresh off a 2-1 week, with wins against Excel Esports and Astralis and a defeat against MAD Lions. Surprisingly, G2 are performing much better than expected, and we have no issues ranking them as one of the strongest LEC teams, but we still need to see more from Rasmus “caPs” Borregaard, who has yet to deliver.

A bet on Vitality is essentially a bet on the European superteam bouncing back from a 0-3 week, and while they aren’t a good spot now, -147.06 seems a bit too generous.
