On Sept. 11, Riot Games revealed the groups for both the main event and the play-in stages of the 2022 League of Legends World Championship. We’ve been given some interesting pairings and a variety of very competitive groups, with Cloud9, T1, and EDG in Group A and JDG, G2 Esports, and DK in Group B, to name a few. 

While all teams will have to get ready and do their best to stay in the competition, the draws might directly impact some of the teams’ journeys at the biggest League tournament of the year. It won’t matter much for powerhouses like JDG or Gen.G, but for the wildcard regions or Western teams, matchups can be what allows them to advance to the next stage.

With Worlds starting at the end of the month, fans and teams alike are already eyeing down the matchups to place their bets on who will come out on top. Based on the draws, we have a good idea of which teams benefitted from these pairings.

Now that we know everything about the main stage groups, let’s go over which teams are the favorites of coming out on top of their respective groups.

Rogue are coming into Worlds as the current LEC champions, having destroyed G2 Esports 3-0 in the finals. Their dominant win might have raised the expectations for the European team, who were quite lucky to end up with LPL’s second seed Top Esports and the VCS team GAM Esports. 

In such a group, Rogue have a strong chance of making it out if they play consistently. They might struggle against a team like Top Esports due to the TES’ teamfighting and individual prowess, but GAM and any team that comes from play-ins should be beatable opponents. The play-in teams’ level of play and macro are usually not as strong as the top teams, so Rogue’s main focus will be on beating GAM, who have had a successful split in the VCS, dominating Saigon Buffalo 3-0 in the finals.

If EG had luck in play-ins, 100 Thieves had it even better. Despite ending in the group with the top LCK seed Gen.G Esports, 100T are also in the same group as CTBC Flying Oster, the PCS representative. Out of all the possible second seeds 100 Thieves could get, they likely got the weakest one.

Their group will also depend on who advances to the group stage, with the worst scenario being Royal Never Give Up if the Chinese team qualifies. Other than that, 100 Thieves might have the luck to reach the knockout stage.With the World Championship coming soon make sure you check out our League of Legends betting page where you can find all the best sign up offers and free bets available.
