2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational Betting Preview

The 2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational will get started on Tuesday, May 10 from Seoul, South Korea. Ten of the 11 teams will be in Seoul for the event with the notable exception of LPL champions Royal Never Give Up. The Chinese representatives will play in the LPL studios because of the country’s restrictions on international travel. This event was supposed to have 13 teams, but the LCL was banned from sending a team due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and GAM Esports will not participate as MSI is occurring at the same time as the Southeast Asian Games.

The most accomplished team in the history of League of Legends is the odds-on favorite to win this event by the Esports betting odds. T1 has won three World Championships and two Mid-Season Invitationals. They have rebuilt their squad around superstar mid laner Faker, and they just put together the most dominant regular season we’ve ever seen in Korea. T1 went 18-0 in the LCK Spring Split and only dropped one map in the finals.

There is no weak link on the current iteration of T1. Keria is the best support in the LCK and probably the world, and Gumayusi is a playmaker in the bottom lane. Zeus is finally living up to his potential in the top lane, and Oner has been the answer to the jungle issues that have vexed this team in recent years. Faker is now in his 10th year as the team’s primary mid laner, and he continues to shine.

It’s somewhat difficult to handicap Royal Never Give Up coming into MSI. All of their matches will be at 30-35 ping and held online, and that can cause some real problems. The 2018 Mid-Season Invitational champions have to proven players in long-time mid laner Xiaohu and veteran support Ming, and GALA played very well at last year’s Worlds. However, Bin and Wei are relative newcomers.

The Western team that is most likely to play spoiler is G2 Esports. G2 shocked everyone by winning the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational after going .500 in the Group Stage. Caps and Jankos are extremely experienced on this stage, and they tore through Europe in the playoffs thanks to their new members. The “Topfather” BrokenBlade has put his coin flip reputation behind him, while Flakked and Targamas have been a solid bottom lane.

Evil Geniuses were extremely surprising LCS champions. They made the most out of the meta as jungler Inspired and bottom laner Danny were absolutely superb throughout the playoffs in North America, but they have some real issues that will likely be exploited at MSI. Mid laner Jojopyun is not as talented as many LCS analysts seem to believe, and top laner Impact is limited at this point in his career. This is a team to fade for most of the competition.
