LoL Championship Series 2021 Summer Betting Preview for Saturday, June 5 Matches

TSM Vs Evil Geniuses

  • When: Saturday, June 5 – 14:00 PDT

The second round of play at the LCS 2021 Spring will begin with a banger. TSM and Evil Geniuses were at each other’s throats for the whole spring split as two of the strongest North American LoL teams.

TSM won the first match in February but suffered a devastating loss in the final week of the regular season. That defeat effectively denied them the LCS 2021 Spring regular-season title.

Heading into the new season, TSM kept their roster intact, whereas Evil Geniuses decided to swap out their ADC player. They replaced Matthew “Deftly” Chen with Kyle “Danny” Sakamaki, who will make his debut in the professional league after showing promise in EG’s Academy team. This is a change that shouldn’t change EG’s identity too much, nor will it make them weaker.

These two seemed equally matched the last split, so it’s safe to expect the balance of power will remain the same. EG can be better on a good day; however, you could argue that TSM field more quality but are inefficient in taking advantage of that.

TSM will enter this match as favorites since they placed higher last season than EG, but since this is very early into the season, there’s a strong chance we might see an upset. At +210 or better, siding with EG is the way to go.

Prediction: Evil Geniuses to win

Dignitas Vs FlyQuest

  • When: Saturday, June 5 – 14:00 PDT

Dignitas and Flyquest will go at it on Saturday in what promises to be a close affair. Still, the eSports bookmakers seem to agree that Dignitas are better equipped to win.

FlyQuest have not made any notable changes ahead of the Summer Split outside of promoting support Han “Dreams” Min-kook from the academy team. But to be fair, they don’t necessarily need to change much.

They have the talent to compete for a top-six finish, but it was self-evident the last term that the players weren’t on the same page. That’s not too shocking, given that this roster was build from scratch in November 2020.

Dignitas kept their roster intact, and that’s fine. They’re a solid team that can compete at a respectable level, but their ceiling is not that high. Dignitas are your typical “good but not great” team that will do fine against bottom-table squads but struggle against LCS top dogs.

Dignitas looked better last term, but that was mostly because FlyQuest underperformed. We expect better showing from the boys in green now that they have had a chance to learn how to play together.

While we can’t know whether FlyQuest have managed to improve during the break, taking their side at even money or better is a wise choice.

Prediction: FlyQuest to win

Cloud9 Vs 100 Thieves

  • When: Saturday, June 5 – 14:00 PDT

The reigning LCS champions Cloud9 will clash with the unpredictable 100 Thieves on Saturday, June 5. It will mark their first meeting since the first round of LCS Mid-Season Showdown when C9 swept 100T with 3-0.

100T are a massive enigma in a way that they field a mighty roster but fail to show that. Much of their struggles last season were due to the mid laner swaps that harmed the team synergy and turned their playstyle upside down.

Surprise, surprise, 100T replaced their mid laner once more during the off-season. Only this time, we feel far more optimistic about this change.

100T acquired former FC Schalke 04 Esports mid laner who joins the team after a promising career in the European league. Not only has the 21-year-old German proven he is a talented player, but his playstyle should fit in perfectly with 100T and what they need to succeed.

Cloud9 have also made a roster change ahead of the LCS 2021 Summer, replacing their star ADC Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen with their academy player Calvin “K1ng” Truong. That’s a weird change that doesn’t seem like it will benefit the team.

That said, C9 have already made a “weird” change earlier this year when they signed Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami as their new top laner, and it proved to be a good choice, so they should know what they’re doing.

Cloud9 seem stronger on paper, but they’ll likely go through some growing pains while K1ng gets used to playing in a new team. This should leave them vulnerable to drop a few games early into the season, and there is no better team to take advantage of that than 100T.

Prediction: 100 Thieves to win
