The LCK is about to return to in-person play for the 2021 Summer Split. 10 top teams in the Korean region will be battling out for the title and a place at the Worlds. If you wish to place a bet on the 2021 LCK Summer Split potential winner, you should probably pick DWG KIA.
The second split of the year is coming a little over two weeks after the conclusion of the 2021 MSI. It will be packed as usual with action from the best teams in the LoL world. It will start on 09 June and last for 10 weeks at the LoL Park in Seoul, South Korea. Each team will play 18 matches in front of a live audience.
According to the online sportsbooks in South Korea, four top dogs at LCK Summer split will be vying for the title and a place at Worlds 2021. They are DWG KIA, Gen.G, T1, and Hanwha Life Esports. However, if you would like to place a safe bet on the 2021 LCK summer, DWG KIA have the best chance of winning.
DWG KIA were dominant at Spring Split
Most fans will look at DWG KIA on whether they will maintain their lead as one of the best teams in the world. Not only the fans but most teams pick DWG KIA as the favorite to win, according to INVEN Global. DWG KIA were undisputedly dominant throughout the 2021 LCK Spring Split. They only lost two games and crushed their playoff matchups.
Although they are the defending champions, their latest performance at Mid-Season Invitational was not very positive. It is not that they were bad or anything, but they were not quite impressive. At the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational, they came in second after they lost to Royal Never Give Up. To bet on 2021 LCK summer to be won by DWG KIA, their odds are 2.00 at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Gen.G are the second-best in Korea for now
This is another team with a great chance of winning, especially if DWG KIA face a disappointing result somewhere in the competition. Gen.G finished the Spring Split and the playoffs in second place losing 0:3 against DWG KIA. So, it is pretty much obvious that they come second on the list of favorites with 3.75 odds to win.
T1 look for no less than winning the summer split
Their head coach Yang “Daeny” Daein stated in a press conference recently: “The summer season is on the path to getting good results at Worlds, so obviously, winning the summer split is also our goal”, as per INVEN Global. It is not impossible as they finished 4th in Spring, but they have to come in perfect against the top dogs. Should that happen you may bet on 2021 LCK summer to be won by T1 with a 5.50 value.
Hanwha Life Esports enjoy their best year
A relatively new squad of Hanwha Life have had their ups and downs. However, their 2021 campaign seems to be the best since 2018. At Spring Split they came out third-placed, losing to DWG KIA. Maybe Hanwha Life have learned from Royal Never Give Up on how to take down DWG KIA. If you think most likely yes, you may choose Hanwha Life with 9.00 odds.
