Gen.G vs Top Esports Predictions


Gen.G and Top Esports will clash on Friday, July 5, 2024, in the first round of the League of Legends Esports World Cup 2024. It'll mark their first meeting since the Mid-Season Invitational, and according to the esports betting odds, Gen.G should win.

League of Legends bookmakers have Gen.G priced as 1.22 favourites to defeat Top Esports, who are 3.80 underdogs for this series. And while Gen.G are the most accomplished team of the season, this price difference is way too big to be considered fair.

  • Top Esports nearly beat Gen.G at MSI 2024
  • Both teams are in excellent form
  • Gen.G are the tournament favourites

Head to Head


Top Esports and Gen.G last met at the Mid-Season Invitational 2024, when Gen.G won.

  • Gen.G 3-2 Top Esports – May 11, 2024

Gen.G Form


Gen.G are the current favourites to win the Esports World Cup 2024, which isn't too surprising. They already won the spring split, Mid-Season Invitational 2024, and are on a path to win the LCK 2024 Summer as well.

Having displayed excellent form throughout the season, Gen.G deserve the recognition they're getting. But the real question is whether they're really that much better than Top Esports and all other teams at the tournament.

They won MSI but also had a very close game against Top Esports (3-2), so perhaps Gen.G shouldn't be priced as 1.22 favourites with Stake.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


No roster changes for Gen.G

  • 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

Top Esports Form


Top Esports aren't expected to make it far at EWC 2024, but that doesn't mean they're a weak LoL esports team. Far from it.

They placed second in the LPL 2024 Spring, and while Top Esports' run at MSI 2024 was cut short by Gen.G and G2 Esports., the Chinese juggernauts shouldn't be underestimated. They nearly beat Gen.G and have looked good over the last couple of weeks at LPL 2024 Summer Placements, so the only real concerning loss of the year came against G2 Esports in China.

Even that doesn't mean a lot, as G2 Esports are arguably up there with the top Asian teams.

Top Esports Squad & Team News


Top Esports have not announced any roster changes.

  • Bai "369" Jia-Hao – top lane
  • Gao "Tian" Tian-Liang – jungle
  • Lin "Creme" Jian – mid lane
  • Yu "JackeyLove" Wen-Bo – ADC
  • Tian "Meiko" Ye – support

Verdict

The fact that we're getting Top Esports priced as 3.80 underdogs for this match makes completely no sense. They're, along with Gen.G, T1, G2 Esports, Bilibili Gaming, and JD Gaming, one of the strongest teams in the world, and while there are some differences between them, quality-wise, they're very close.

Gen.G defeated Top Esports in May, but they had to dig deep to win that series, which was anything but one-sided. Considering both teams seem to be in good form, another closer game is to be expected.
