Esports Betting Tips: Tuesday, June 21st

Victory Five vs FunPlus Phoenix

LPL 2022 Summer

Victory Five are huge favourites for this match, as they should be since they're one of the main favourites to win the LPL title. This is a powerful team featuring some of the league's top players, but there is a chance that Victory Five will continue playing with Tan "Dream" Wen-Xiang, since Song "Rookie" Eui-jin has yet to acquire his visa.

This means that Vicory Five won't be at 100%, but based on their recent results, they don't have to be to contest the top spot in the league. Victory Five are 2-0 and have a perfect 4-0 map record, but they had only won against ThunderTalk and LGD.

FunPlus Phoenix are 0-3 after three rounds with defeats against EDward Gaming, Invictus Gaming, and Royal Never Give Up. Of the three losses, the one against Invictus Gaming is the one that is surprising, but I view that defeat as a fluke rather than a real indication of FunPlus Phoenix's strength.

Victory Five are stronger than FunPlus Phoenix, but the current meta is way too unpredictable for me to believe they can win 2-0. Most of the games tend to be decided in the late game, mainly around neutral objectives, which leaves a lot of room for upsets and surprise winners. 

I like FunPlus Phoenix with a map advantage at 1.61, mainly because we have yet to see Victory Five play against a strong team this split.

Royal Never Give Up vs Weibo Gaming

LPL 2022 Summer

Royal Never Give Up won the 2022 MSI and is considered the strongest team in the world. That might have been the case in the spring split, but there are no guarantees that Royal Never Give Up will retain this tag in summer.

That's not because RNG have made any major roster changes, but rather because the game looks much different now, which should shake up the balance of power and potentially see teams that were solid in spring, fall apart in summer.

So far, Royal Never Give Up have yet to disappoint, but they had played just one game against FunPlus Phoenix, which they won 2-1. A solid result, but not enough to make any conclusions.

Weibo Gaming have played three games in LPL 2022 Summer and won two against Invictus Gaming (2-1) and Team WE (2-1), but lost against EDward Gaming last week. 

Weibo Gaming is good enough to compete with Royal Never Give Up, but they have yet to convince me that they can win. Due to the current meta, this could be a very messy match, but Royal Never Give Up should win and will likely do in no more than two maps.

Tundra Esports vs Team Secret

WEU DPC Tour 3 Division I

Team Secret have not been looking like their former selves this season and seem to be in a very rough spot. With a 4-6 record and a 1-1 in DPC Tour 3 Division I, Secret need to start showing something, or we might not see them at The International 11.

Secret lost against OG and won against Alliance in their last two matches, which is not great, but those results really don't tell us much. OG are the strongest European team, while Alliance are one of the weakest top-division squads, so we know that Secret are not the best, but they're also not the worst team at the tournament.

Tundra Esports are an entirely different story, having won both of their games in DPC Tour 3 Division I against Alliance and OG without dropping a map. Unlike Secret, Tundra have found traction early into the 2022 season and have not slowed down since.

Tundra even placed third at the Stockholm Major, where their only defeats came against TSM and OG. Clearly, this is a quality team and one of the candidates to win TI11.

This is a spot where you can't doubt Tundra Esports, both due to their form and a 3-0 H2H record against Secret (2-0 in 2022). And even though Tundra are known for choking in crucial moments, their recent form and a solid victory against OG lead me to believe they can defeat Secret 2-0!
