The old champions Fnatic did not have a successful year in 2017, so they are looking to return to the top this year. Their new roster is not tested yet, but the former coach of G2, Joey “YoungBuck” Steltenpool has joined Fnatic as its new Director. Their first two games are with competitive teams Splyce and H2K. The both teams did not prove how far their new players are forming strong squads. Fnatic have the favorite odds in both games. Their odds are 1.43 against Splyce, and 1.20 against H2K.
Can we already pick an outright winner?
At Unibet Sportsbook the EU LCS split spring 2018 odds for an outright winner are only open until Jan 19, so if you wish to bet on the EU LCS spring split winner you have to pick your favorite team before the league begins. Fnatic enjoy the best odds standing at 2.50, but their ranking is still behind their major rival G2 Esports on both European and world levels. However Fnatic’s new director who dominated EU LCS landscape from 2015 to 2017 will probably help the team recoup the winning feeling.
Thus the top European team G2 and the 7th best team in the world have also a big chance of winning for the fifth time in a row. Yet since three of their players have moved to new regions, G2 might not reach the heights of the last squad. Their odds are 4.75 for winning the Spring Split. Thus if you hope to celebrate new champions you may pick either Misfits or Schalke 04 Esports. The odds for Misfits are 5.50, and they are 7.00 for Schalke 04 Esports.
