After hitting all but one of last week’s League of Legends European Championship (LEC) Spring betting predictions, ESB returns with another set of best bets and odds for three games played on Friday, February 12.


SCHALKE 04 vs ASTRALIS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: S04 -357.14 at BetOnline | Astralis +245 at BetOnline

Schalke 04 enter the fourth week of LEC Spring 2021 on a four-game winning streak that includes two very convincing wins against G2 Esports and Rogue. While we can praise S04 for what they have shown of late, there is nothing positive to say about their next opponents.

Astralis were billed as the weakest team before the season began, and the first three weeks have not changed that assessment. To make matters worse, Astralis’ star mid laner Erlend “nukeduck” Våtevik Holm has stepped down from the team. His replacement is Carl Felix “MagiFelix” Boström, who is a talented player, so perhaps he might prove to be an upgrade.

There is a world where Astralis perform better with MagiFelix on the team, but even that likely won’t be enough to derail the in-form S04. Take Schalke 04 with a -6.5 kill handicap.

TEAM VITALITY vs EXCEL ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Vitality -119.05 at BetOnline | Excel -112.36 at BetOnline
When: February 12, 2021 at 19:00 CET

We were already quite big on Team Vitality, and we have an even bigger reason to look at these guys with excitement now that they have signed the former SK Gaming ADC Juš “Crownshot” Marušič to their roster. By acquiring Crownshot, Vitality have gained both a carry player and a strong leader, which is exactly what they need to fix their mid- and late-game struggles.

Excel enter this match with a fairly solid 4-3 record and a three-game winning streak. Their run, however, is slightly misleading considering their latest three wins came against Astralis, Misfits and SK Gaming, which are not exactly strong teams.

Even though we are a bit concerned with how quickly Crownshot can gel in with his new team, his arrival makes Vitality significantly stronger. This should be a close match, but we expect Vitality to take the win.

MISFITS GAMING vs G2 ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Misfits +280 at BetOnline | G2 -416.67 at BetOnline

We rarely bet on Misfits Gaming, largely because they’re the type of team that can lose any game, but on the flip side, they can also defeat anyone on their day. That makes them difficult to play against, so it’s hard not to like them as a punch-up underdog.

The Bunnies are set to face the reigning LEC champions, G2 Esports, which seems like a match that can end only one way. That said, G2 haven’t looked too good this split, and we would go even so far to say they will not win the regular season unless they improve.

Misfits’ chaotic, aggressive and unpredictable playstyle could catch G2 off guard, so there is definitely a world where they can cause an upset. At these long odds, placing a few bucks on the outsiders is more than worth the risk.
