With the LoL EMEA Championship (LEC) Winter split behind us, we now look towards the LEC Spring campaign, which will begin on March 11, with the winner securing a spot in the Mid-Season Invitational and LEC Finals.
Even though G2 Esports entered the LEC Winter split as the favourite with esports betting sites, there were some reservations about their roster, with three new players joining the roster following their disappointing run at LoL Worlds 2022. However, there appeared to be little cause for concern as the now 10-time LEC champions finished the split by winning six of their last seven matches while dropping three maps.
G2 Esports are the clear favourites to win the LEC Spring split at -111.11 with BetOnline, ahead of Team Vitality at +200 and MAD Lions at +750.
LEC Spring 2023 Top Tip: G2 Esports
We let G2 Esports slip through our fingers, thinking that the offseason changes would hurt G2’s chances of winning the LEC Winter split, but they made us look silly by dominating KOI and MAD Lions on their way to their 10th LEC title.
Martin “Yike” Sundelin, Steven “Hans sama” Liv, and Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle, G2’s new additions, all held their own, with Yike and Hans sama recording top-10 KDA’s across the LEC. With their first split behind them, we have no doubt that G2 will only improve heading into the spring split.
Considering how dominant G2 were throughout the group stage and playoffs, there isn’t one team in the LEC that can say they have the wood over the reigning LEC champions, as they defeated both KOI and MAD Lions in the playoffs.
Most LoL betting sites aren’t offering much value for G2 Esports, which are ticketed around the -125–-111.11 mark, but there doesn’t appear to be a team in the LEC that stands out as a clear threat to the reigning champions, so we will be backing them in to go back-to-back.
