Gen.G vs Fnatic Predictions


Gen.G and Fnatic will meet on Wednesday, May 8, in the first round of the Mid-Season Invitational 2024 Playoffs. It'll be the first meeting between the two squads of the season, and according to the esports betting odds, Gen.G should win easily.

League of Legends bookmakers have Gen.G priced as 1.01 favourites to defeat Fnatic, who enter the match as 21.00 underdogs. At this number, Gen.G are all but guaranteed to win, which might sound fair, but the numbers are outrageous.

  • Gen.G are LCK 2024 Spring champions
  • Fnatic placed second in their domestic league (LEC)
  • Fnatic played well in the Play-In stage

Head to Head


Fnatic and Gen.G have yet to meet with their current lineups.

Gen.G Form


Gen.G entered MSI 2024 as one of the main candidates to win the trophy, along with Bilibili Gaming and T1. And even though they've yet to play a series, Gen.G are priced as massive favourites to defeat Fnatic.

At 1.01, Gen.G are expected to win the game in 99% of scenarios, which isn't a correct number, but likely bookmakers' attempt to prevent bettors from creating parlays with all the main favourites in the first round. 

Even though Gen.G are undeniably one of the world's strongest and most complete teams, having them priced at essentially the lowest odds possible is really pushing it and not a fair representation of the teams' strength.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


Gen.G without any changes.

  • Kim "Kiin" Gi-in – top lane
  • Kim "Canyon" Geon-bu – jungle
  • Jeong "Chovy" Ji-hoon – mid lane
  • Kim "Peyz" Su-hwan – ADC
  • Son "Lehends" Si-woo – support

Fnatic Form


Fnatic ended the spring split in second place, behind G2 Esports and entered yet another MSI 2024 as Europe's second-strongest LoL esports team. However, even though Fnatic are by no means one of the real candidates to win MSI, they have enough talent and experience to do well.

In the Play-In stage, Fnatic dragged Top Esports to three maps, which is impressive and a good indication of Fnatic's ability to compete with the top teams. Admittedly, Gen.G are a stronger team than Top Esports, but that's no reason to have Fnatic priced as 21.00 underdogs here.

Fnatic Squad & Team News


No changes for Fnatic.

  • Óscar "Oscarinin" Muñoz – top lane
  • Iván "Razork" Martín Díaz – jungle
  • Marek "Humanoid" Brázda – mid lane
  • Oh "Noah" Hyeon-taek – ADC
  • Yoon "Jun" Se-jun – support

Verdict

Gen.G should win this series, and it's impossible to find a good reason to doubt them. But from a betting perspective, siding with Gen.G makes no sense. Even on a great day, they shouldn't be expected to defeat Fnatic in 99% of scenarios, especially considering Fnatic performed well against Top Esports and have the tools to fight any team in the world.

At these betting odds, you have to take Fnatic and hope for the best, not only because they're underrated but because Fnatic are good enough to win a map, possibly two, against Gen.G.
