Esportbet brings you free League of Legends betting tips for Saturday’s LoL European Championship (LEC) bouts. Here are our best bets for Schalke 04 vs Excel Esports, Team Vitality vs Misfits Gaming, MAD Lions vs Astralis, and G2 Esports vs SK Gaming in Week 8 of LEC Spring 2021.


SCHALKE 04 vs EXCEL ESPORTS LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: S04 -222.22 at BetOnline | Excel +153 at BetOnline
When: March 13, 2021 at 17:00 CET
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


Schalke 04 kept their playoffs dreams alive last week when they snapped their seven-game losing streak in half with a commanding win against Astralis. With a 6-9 record, S04’s chances of entering the playoffs are fairly slim as they either need to win all their remaining games or hope for Misfits to choke.

On a more positive note, this should be S04’s easiest match of the LEC Super Week. Excel Esports enter this match on a seven-game losing streak that includes losses against some of the weakest teams in the league.

Excel have the potential to develop into a strong team, but it is hard to be overly optimistic about their chances this weekend. Schalke might have been struggling of late, but they should win games like this with their eyes closed.

TEAM VITALITY vs MISFITS GAMING LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: Vitality +131 at BetOnline | Misfits -161.29 at BetOnline
When: March 13, 2021 at 18:00 CET

If we were to compare the individual talent of these two teams, Misfits would seem much stronger, but anyone who has been watching LEC games can agree Team Vitality are far more stable and play much cleaner LoL than the Bunnies.

Misfits have picked up six wins this split, but most of those came either against weaker opponents or from flukes against stronger squads. While we don’t view Misfits as a lost cause, they seriously need to re-evaluate their approach to games and find some sort of stability ahead of the LEC Summer.

Statistically, Misfits are the better team, but the eye test says Vitality should not be priced as high as they are. The Bees bested SK Gaming and Excel last week, and more of that form should see them make short work of Misfits as well.

MAD LIONS vs ASTRALIS LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: MAD -384.62 at BetOnline | Astralis +259 at BetOnline
When: March 13, 2021 at 19:00 CET
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


Astralis are looking much better than they did early in the season, but that isn’t saying a hell of a lot. While the Danes might be fun to watch due to their aggressive playstyle, this is a team you should generally avoid betting on – much like the Golden Guardians in the LoL Championship Series (LCS).

MAD Lions might not have been performing as well as many expected them to, but there is huge potential for growth. Javier “Elyoya” Prades Batalla is shaping up to end the season as one of the best junglers in the league, while İrfan Berk “Armut”Tükek continues to impress with his versatility and strong laning in the top lane.

MAD’s main issue remains their volatile bottom lane, which tends to be way too aggressive during the laning phase. However, that was not as noticeable last week, which leads us to believe Matyáš “Carzzy” Orság and Norman “Kaiser” Kaiser have stabilised.

The only way Astralis can win here is if MAD Lions drop the ball. While we might see a more relaxed approach from MAD since they are already locked in for playoffs, that is not a good enough reason for us to take the outsiders.

MAD Lions -7.5 kills

G2 ESPORTS vs SK GAMING LOL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: G2 -454.55 at BetOnline | SK +300 at BetOnline
When: March 13, 2021 at 20:00 CET
Watch Live: Lolesports, Twitch


G2 Esports are no strangers to losing against weaker opponents, but they need to step it up a notch in the final week if they are serious about winning the regular-season title. With only one win separating them from Rogue, we can expect G2 to take their games a bit more seriously now and avoid the kind of silly mistakes that often make their games much closer than they should be.

SK Gaming are doing much better than initially expected, but they are still a class below G2, Rogue, Fnatic and MAD Lions. Regardless, SK are all but guaranteed to secure a spot in the playoffs and don’t necessarily need to defeat G2 to punch their ticket.

This is a must-win match for G2, so we can expect them to be on their best behaviour. In their wins, G2 have averaged 18.63 kills and only 8.25 deaths, so it makes sense to take them to get up with at least nine kills to spare.

G2 Esports -8.5 kills
