2022 League of Legends LCS Spring Split Week 4 Betting Preview
It was almost an incredible week for upsets last Sunday. Immortals, FlyQuest, and Golden Guardians all won as prohibitive underdogs per the League of Legends betting odds, as all three teams were at least +200 in their matches. Team SoloMid blew a lead against Cloud9 as more than a +500 underdog too, and the only favorite that largely took care of business was Team Liquid despite a poor decision around the Baron Pit shortly after 20 minutes. The oddsmakers have adjusted, and there aren’t many juicy underdogs for the fourth week of the 2022 LCS Spring Split.
2022 League of Legends LCS Spring Split Week 4 Betting Odds
Team Liquid -385
After losing their first match of the LCS Spring Split, Team Liquid have been unstoppable. They are 5-1 and tied with FlyQuest for first place, but they will not have star support CoreJJ this week for personal reasons. Fortunately, Eyla has some experience playing with bottom laner Hans Sama, and Bjergsen has been great in the mid lane since coming out of retirement with an 11 KDA.
Dignitas have outperformed expectations, but they are starting to tail off. They lost to FlyQuest and Golden Guardians last week, as some of their quirky picks have been figured out. Blue and Neo have been very good in their lanes, but it’s not worth backing them at this price.
Team SoloMid -133
Counter Logic Gaming +100
These are the two worst teams in the LCS. Team SoloMid and Counter Logic Gaming were two of the best teams in the LCS during the mid-2010s, but TSM has collapsed this year and CLG has been in the basement for the last few years.
TSM’s decision to build a team around Spica has not paid off. Yursan was an improvement over Shenyi at support though, and there is more reason for optimism about TSM than the roster that CLG has constructed. These teams aren’t on the same level, and this is a chance to get TSM at a discounted price.
100 Thieves -125
The best bet of the week is on the reigning LCS champions to beat a disorganized Cloud9. C9’s decision to fire LS just before last week’s matches was subject to plenty of ridicule, and they did not play well without their coach. 100 Thieves are as solid as ever with their roster, as three players have an 8.4 KDA or higher. C9 no longer have any tricks up their sleeve, and their drafts figure to be very uncreative for the near future.
The most surprising team through the first three weeks of the season is FlyQuest. They are tied with Team Liquid for first place at 5-1 in the LCS, and new mid laner Toucouille is playing great with a 9.6 KDA, while Johnsun has been very good in the bottom lane. This is a bit of a smoke and mirrors team, but Immortals should be more of an underdog considering Revenge has not looked great on carry champions and we know what to expect from Xerxe and WildTurtle at this point.
Golden Guardians +153
Evil Geniuses -208
The Evil Geniuses are much better than their 2-4 record indicates. Evil Geniuses have been unfortunate that they have faced three of the best teams in the region, and the Golden Guardians won’t be able to hard punish JoJopyun in the mid lane. That should enable Danny and Inspired to lead EG to a needed win.
