Priced as two outsiders, T1 and Weibo Gaming defied all the odds to reach Sunday’s League of Legends World Championship 2023 grand final. However, while Weibo winning would follow the tradition of underdogs doing well, all the attention is on Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, who is on the verge of his fourth LoL Worlds title.

T1 entered LoL Worlds 2023 as +700 outsiders in outright betting with top esports bookmakers, and while the Korean juggernauts haven’t looked great early, they have recently found momentum. After the crushing loss against Gen.G in the Swiss stage, T1 destroyed Cloud9 and three LoL Pro League (LPL) representatives: Bilibili Gaming, LNG Esports, and JD Gaming.

Much of T1’s success so far is thanks to their stable early-game play and ability to gain leads and use them to snowball to victory. However, while LNG Esports struggled to match T1’s early game and JD Gaming failed to respond to T1’s drafts, Weibo Gaming might not be as easy to take down.

Weibo’s stats at LoL Worlds 2023 aren’t as flashy as T1’s, but they’ve looked strong in all stages of the game. With 619 gold difference at 15 minutes and +133 gold difference per minute, they rank close to T1 in performance metrics. Moreover, Weibo Gaming have shown a very deep champion pool, with each player using at least six unique champions.

LoL betting sites have T1 priced as heavy favourites, but they are priced far too short at -333.33 with BetOnline. T1’s flexibility and strong early game are tough to deal with, but the underdogs aren’t getting enough respect.

Like T1, Weibo Gaming can play through the top or bottom lane, and if they can punish Faker’s limited champion pool, this should be a much closer game than expected.
