With Excel Esports priced at 6.00 underdogs by Esports betting sites, G2 Esports enters the match as 1.11 favourites. The given LoL Esports betting odds provide G2 Esports with a 90.1% implied probability of winning, a substantial figure that prompts the question of whether backing Excel would prove worthwhile.

  • It is predicted that G2 Esports will be the victors of the LEC 2023 Summer. 
  • Excel Esports should not be underestimated due to their competitiveness.
  • Despite G2 Esports being the anticipated winners, Excel should not be disregarded.

Previous Encounter


In the final week of the LEC 2023 Summer regular season, G2 Esports emerged victorious in their last meeting with Excel Esports.

  • G2 Esports vs Excel Esports: 1-0 outcome on July 2, 2023

Performance Analysis: G2 Esports


G2 Esports began the LEC 2023 Summer as the main favourites to win. They have met expectations by finishing the regular season in first place, with just one loss to MAD Lions in the opening week. Following this, G2 Esports smoothly sailed through the LEC 2023 Summer Groups with two victories against KOI (2-0) and Team BDS (2-0).

Despite their reputation for not taking the regular season seriously, G2 Esports displayed remarkable composure during the LEC 2023 Summer Groups. However, G2 Esports' tendency to underestimate opponents may eventually work against them.

While G2 Esports is unlikely to lose against Excel Esports, there is a reasonable probability that they will lose a map.

Team Composition & Roster: G2 Esports


Team roster for G2 Esports will remain unchanged.

  • Sergen "BrokenBlade" Çelik – top lane
  • Martin "Yike" Sundelin – jungle
  • Rasmus "Caps" Borregaard Winther – mid lane
  • Steven "Hans Sama" Liv – ADC
  • Mihael "Mikyx" Mehle – support

Performance Analysis: Excel Esports


Excel Esports made a significant leap from finishing the last two splits in 10th place to ending the LEC 2023 Summer regular season in third place, with a 5-4 record. Despite not having the highest win rate, Excel showed promise in the latter part of the split and the LEC 2023 Summer Groups.

Securing their spot in the playoffs with a 2-0 sweep of MAD Lions and a closely-contested victory against SK Gaming (2-1), Excel Esports is currently 7-1 in their last eight games. This streak includes two best-of-three wins versus MAD and SK, with a single loss to G2 Esports. Their recent performance indicates a competitive team, although their capability to outperform G2 Esports remains to be seen.

Team Composition & Roster: Excel Esports


There will be no changes for Excel Esports.

  • Andrei "Odoamne" Pascu – top lane
  • Lee "Peach" Min-gyu – jungle
  • Felix "Abbedagge" Braun – mid lane
  • Patrik "Patrik" Jírů – ADC
  • Dino "LIMIT" Tot – support

Verdict

G2 Esports are objectively the best team in the LEC, so it's not surprising to see them priced as 1.11 favourites for Monday's match. However, at this number, betting on G2 Esports makes no sense. 

Despite how good G2 Esports can be, they are still a team that will clown around and give their opponents too much space.

This might not be the case in the playoffs, assuming G2 Esports will take all of their matches seriously, in which case, G2 Esports should sweep. But at the offered betting odds, we're getting far more value backing Excel Esports to win at least one map.
