ESB’s League of Legends betting tips for Saturday focus on three LoL Pro League (LPL) matches featuring Bilibili Gaming, Oh My God, JD Gaming, Team WE, FunPlus Phoenix and Top Esports. Check out our best bets for those fixtures, with odds courtesy of BetOnline.


BILIBILI GAMING vs OH MY GOD LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: BLG $1.18 at BetOnline | OMG $4.43 at BetOnline
When: February 6, 2021 at 15:00 CST

Oh My God are 0-6 with a 2-12 map differential, and even those two maps came via a fluke against EDward Gaming (1-2) on day one of the split and against eStar (1-2) in what was arguably the lowest-quality LoL we have seen this season. On a more positive note, OMG looked somewhat decent against Royal Never Give Up two weeks ago.

OMG’s run might not be too promising, but they at least have a somewhat intelligent approach to their games. Their next opponents, Bilibili Gaming, are slowly finding their form. Even though we wouldn’t like to overreact to their 2-1 win against RNG on Monday, it was still a solid showing from Kim “Aiming” Ha-ram and his crew as they locked in their third consecutive win of the season.

At the offered betting odds, there might be some value on OMG with a map handicap, but they’re far too shaky for us to risk our money. Bilibili to win 2-0 and cover the line is a safer bet at a good price.

JD GAMING vs TEAM WE LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: JDG $1.86 at BetOnline | WE $1.87 at BetOnline

JD Gaming have endured a rocky start to the 2021 campaign, losing against EDward Gaming, Invictus Gaming and Top Esports. That said, JDG have had no issues defeating weaker sides such as Bilibili Gaming, Rare Atom and Rogue Warriors.

Even though JDG seem to be in better shape than Team WE, who have lost both of their last two outings, we don’t believe Zhang “Zoom” Xing-Ran will have an easy time on Saturday. WE looked good in their recent loss against Rare Atom and should not be underestimated solely due to one shaky week.

FUNPLUS PHOENIX vs TOP ESPORTS LoL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

LoL Betting Odds: FPX $1.84 at BetOnline | Top $1.89 at BetOnline
When: February 6, 2021 at 21:00 CST

FunPlus Phoenix’s 2-0 sweep of Invictus Gaming last Saturday looks good on paper, but it was more a game where IG lost rather than a game which FPX won. Still, we should give some praise for FPX’s newly promoted jungler Zhou “Bo” Yang-Bo, who managed 26 kills in two games (although IG played into his Olaf, so it’s hard to expect another such performance from him anytime soon).

After dropping the ball against Suning and Rogue Warriors at the start of the season, Top Esports went on to win three in a row, including a 2-0 sweep of JD Gaming last time out. One thing to take away from that series is Top’s strong early game, which they used to gain the lead and snowball to victory.

Even though both sides claimed big wins last week, we were far more impressed with Top Esports, who seem to have found their rhythm. FPX might have lost only one game so far, but they haven’t been properly tested yet, so we have to favour Top Esports.
