Worlds 2020: Can G2 Esports overcome China and Korea?

On the eve of Worlds 2020, League of Legends fans will no doubt be unsurprised to learn that Chinese and Korean teams dominate the list of favourites to win the tournament.

Like most esports betting sites, we at Luckbox make China's Top Esports favourites at odds around 2.60, ahead of Korea's DAMWON Gaming at 3.50 and JD Gaming - another team from China's LPL - in third at 4.75.

G2 Esports are Europe's best hope. They were runners-up at Worlds 2019, losing in the final to FunPlus Phoenix in Paris.

While last year's champions somehow contrived to miss out on qualification for Worlds 2020, G2 Esports have stayed in great shape and find themselves fourth favourites at odds of 6.00.


That means, for League of Legends fans placing a bet on Worlds 2020 and who fancy G2 Esports to go one better in Shanghai, a €10 bet would return €60 - if Caps and Co can do the business.

Looking at the groups, G2 should make short work of reaching the Worlds 2020 bracket after being drawn to face Suning Gaming (19.00) and Machi Esports (126.00).

Top Esports seemingly have it slightly tougher, with Dragon X (15.00) and FlyQuest (96.00) for company in Group D.


Group B, however, looks like being the group of death, with DAMWON Gaming and JD Gaming thrown in with Rogue (46.00). Good luck to whichever team comes through the play-ins to join that bloodbath.
