League of Legends bookmakers have Bilibili Gaming priced as 1.52 favourites to defeat T1, who are 2.35 underdogs for the upcoming series. Since BLG have already defeated T1 twice this season, this price sounds about right. However, this is still a match between two world-class teams.

  • Bilibili Gaming defeated T1 twice in May
  • T1 have had a solid start to the season
  • Bilibili Gaming reached the finals of MSI 2024

Head to Head


Bilibili Gaming and T1 met twice at the Mid-Season Invitational 2024, and both games ended in Bilibili Gaming's favour.

  • Bilibili Gaming 3-1 T1 – May 12, 2024
  • Bilibili Gaming 3-2 T1 – May 18, 2024

Bilibili Gaming Form


Bilibili Gaming enter Esports World Cup 2024 as one of the leading favourites to win the whole thing, and that's not too wrong of an assessment.

The Chinese LoL esports team are the reigning LPL 2024 Spring champions and Mid-Season Invitational 2024 finalists, which alone is a very good testament to their quality. Bilibili Gaming also finished LPL 2024 Summer Placements first in their group with a 5-1 record, further proving that they are an elite team.

It's important to note that BLG didn't have to play any excellent teams at the LPL 2024 Summer Placements, so the 5-1 record should be taken with a grain of salt. But that run proves that Bilibili Gaming are (still) in good form.

Bilibili Gaming Squad & Team News


Bilibili Gaming have not announced any roster changes.

  • Chen "Bin" Ze-Bin – top lane
  • Peng "Xun" Li-Xun – jungle
  • Zhuo "knight" Ding – mid lane
  • Zhao "Elk" Jia-Hao – ADC
  • Luo "ON" Wen-Jun – support

T1 Form


T1 enter this match with a lot to prove. As the reigning LoL world champions, T1 had a solid start to the year, as they finished LCK 2024 Spring in second place – behind Gen.G. Even at the Mid-Season Invitational, T1 didn't look bad, although they had to settle for a third-place finish following a close loss to Bilibili Gaming in the lower bracket finals.

Since then, T1 have played six games in LCK 2024 Summer and won four. Those include victories against DRX, Dplus KIA, Kwangdong Freecs, and Nongshim RedForce and defeats against Gen.G and KT Rolster.

A 4-2 isn't the most promising start to the year, but it also shouldn't be a reason for concern, knowing how good T1 can be. So the real question heading into this match is whether T1 will step up and show what they're capable of.

T1 Squad & Team News


No roster changes for T1.

  • Choi "Zeus" Woo-je – top lane
  • Mun "Oner" Hyeon-jun – jungle
  • Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok – mid lane
  • Lee "Gumayusi" Min-hyeong – ADC
  • Ryu "Keria" Min-seok – support

Verdict


T1 lost to Bilibili Gaming twice in May, so naturally, they're not expected to turn things around on Thursday. Still, we have to consider that their last two meetings with Bilibili Gaming were relatively close, so we can't say that T1 are significantly weaker.

Bilibili Gaming should be priced as favourites, but at this number, they're a bit overrated since the gap between the world's top teams isn't significant enough for there to be such a big price gap – as proven at the MSI 2024 in May.
