ESB’s free League of Legends betting picks for Saturday, June 8, focus on the first week of the LoL EMEA Championship (LEC) 2024 Summer regular season. Here are our picks for Team Heretics vs GIANTX, SK Gaming vs Rogue, Team Vitality vs Team BDS, and MAD Lions KOI vs G2 Esports.

TEAM HERETICS vs GIANTX LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAIL

Best Odds: HRT -303.03 at BetOnline | GX +225 at BetOnline
When: June 8, 2024 | 17:00 CEST

GIANTX enter the final split of the League of Legends season with a new top laner, Antonio “Th3Antonio” Espinosa Bejarano and jungler Lee “Juhan” Ju-han, who are exciting additions. But the main thing that will dictate how well GIANTX will do this split is whether they’ll find a way to improve their early game.

In the spring split, GIANTX were very effective in closing out games where they got ahead early – but that happened very rarely. Perhaps their new additions will fix that, giving us a reason to be cautiously optimistic about this squad.

Team Heretics didn’t make any roster changes this offseason but instead freshened up the coaching staff – which was a smart move considering, talent-wise, Heretics are in a good spot. Drafting and overall approach to games needs some work.

GIANTX and Team Heretics were flawed teams in the LEC 2024 Spring, but they’ve made changes that might help with their issues. There’s a big “what if” on both ends, making GIANTX an excellent underdog bet at the offered price.

SK GAMING vs ROGUE LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAIL

Best Odds: SK -188.68 at BetOnline | RGE +137 at BetOnline
When: June 8, 2024 | 17:45 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

Last month, SK Gaming announced the signing of a new bottom lane duo, Cho “Rahel” Min-seong and support Lee “Luon” Hyun-ho, who could prove to be massive additions. SK were extremely inconsistent last split and completely fell apart following a strong start. so assuming Rahel and Luon can introduce some stability, SK Gaming could fly very high.

Rogue decided to run it back for LEC 2024 Summer, which is a bizarre decision for a team that was clearly the worst in the league since the winter split. Oddly, Rogue have the talent to do well, but we could’ve made the same excuse in January, yet nothing has changed.

Rogue have to find traction, and while they may bounce back, Emil “Larssen” Larsson and his crew have to first show something.

TEAM VITALITY vs TEAM BDS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAIL

Best Odds: VIT -125 at BetOnline | BDS -111.11 at BetOnline
When: June 8, 2024 | 18:30 CEST
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

No changes for Team Vitality ahead of LEC 2024 Summer – and that’s completely fine. Team Vitality were a strong mid-table team in the LEC 2024 Spring, showing a surprisingly high level of consistency. It was uncharacteristic for this roster, but if Vitality can keep playing like that, they might be in the race for a top-three finish.

Team BDS are another interesting team. In spring, Team BDS proved they could do well without relying too much on top laner Adam “Adam” Maanane, and yet he still played a significant role in many of BDS’ victories. Like Vitality, Team BDS just need to continue what they started, and we could be looking at another potential threat for Fnatic and G2.

At the offered moneyline odds, no side of this matchup is interesting, but the esports betting sites have overexaggerated with the total kills line.

MAD LIONS KOI vs G2 ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAIL

Best Odds: MDK +275 at BetOnline | G2 -400 at BetOnline
When: June 8, 2024 | 19:15 CEST

Unsurprisingly, G2 Esports kept their entire lineup intact – as they should. G2 Esports are unquestionably the best European LoL esports team and, as proven at the Mid-Season Invitational 2024, one of the world’s strongest teams.

The only two reasons to doubt G2 Esports are questionable motivation to perform and fatigue. This might not seem too relevant, but it can play a big factor, especially with G2 Esports, who are known to mess around when nothing is on the line.

MAD Lions KOI looked great last split when they built on the early success from the LEC 2024 Winter and proved themselves as a resilient and well-coached team. While they’re still not at the same level as G2 Esports, the kill handicap line for this match is a bit too high, knowing that G2 Esports might not be ready or willing to perform at 100%.

MAD Lions KOI +8.5 kills
