Our League of Legends betting expert brings you free predictions for three LoL European Championship (LEC) fixtures played on Saturday, January 30, with odds courtesy of Betway.


ASTRALIS vs EXCEL ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Astralis $2.52 at Betway | Excel $1.48 at Betway
When: January 30, 2021 at 17:00 CET
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

Excel Esports enter the second week of LEC Spring 2021 with a somewhat unconvincing 1-2 record, but they deserve some slack since they’ve had to face Rogue and G2 Esports. Their next opponents, Astralis, hold the same record, which includes a very questionable win against Team Vitality and defeats against SK Gaming and MAD Lions.

Excel are far from perfect but have impressed us with their composed playstyle and very exciting drafts. If they can continue playing this way, Excel should do more than fine against mid- and lower-table teams such as Astralis.

We would not recommend going over the -4.5 kill handicap for this match, as the current meta is slower (24 average kills per game in the LEC) and Excel are not exactly a bloodthirsty team.

ROGUE vs TEAM VITALITY LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Rogue $1.26 at Betway | Vitality $3.65 at Betway
When: January 30, 2021 at 19:00 CET
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

The latest LoL betting odds suggest this should be a very one-sided affair. While we can agree Rogue are the most likely victors, we don’t believe they will have an easy time covering the kill handicap.

Last week Rogue won with at least eight kills to spare twice – against SK Gaming (14-5) and against Fnatic (24-10) – although it’s important to consider that SK are weaker than Team Vitality, whereas Fnatic forced Rogue to play at a higher tempo.

Vitality to keep this match within seven kills is a good bet. Outside of their loss against Astralis on Sunday, Vitality played well and might be much stronger than the betting odds suggest.

SK GAMING vs MISFITS GAMING LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: SK $2.37 at Betway | Misfits $1.55 at Betway
When: January 30, 2021 at 18:00 CET
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch

Misfits Gaming are one of the most unpredictable teams in the league. While they can have their moments of greatness, it’s unclear how high this squad can fly. One thing to take away from their bouts is that Misfits are not afraid to fight, seeing how they have been involved in two of the highest-scoring games of the season, including a 35-kill match against Fnatic and a 37-kill match against MAD Lions.

SK Gaming are not looking good, but they’re still performing better than expected. They started the season with a fairly comfortable win against Astralis and even looked somewhat decent in their loss against G2 Esports.

Since Misfits are a very volatile squad, a bet on SK is not a bad option, although we would like to see slightly higher odds. Instead, we predict this game will end with at least 23 kills, which should be easily achievable since neither team seems the type to play safe picks such as Lulu/Ivern.

Over 22.5 kills
