I haven’t focused on eSports here at Sports Betting Canadian in the past, but it’s impossible not to notice how popular eSports betting has become worldwide, including here in Canada. I will look to include eSports betting articles moving forward and I’m also planning to add an eSports betting section to the site in the near future.
The League of Legends World Championship begins tomorrow with 24 teams from all over the world battling it out for the World Championship Trophy. The tournament will be held over the next 6 weekends with the World Championship Finals set to take place on November 4th at the National Stadium in Beijing. This weekend is the first of two play-in stages, which will be followed by two group stages, the quarterfinals, semi-finals and then the finals.
Bet365.com is our recommended sportsbooks for betting on the League of Legends World Championships, and they are offering a huge range of LOL betting markets for the tournament.
League Of Legends World Championships Futures
These are the futures bets offered for the entire tournament. As you can see there are 5 different bet offerings where you can back specific teams throughout the course of the touranment:

SK Telecom T1 and Longzhu are the two big favourites heading into the World Championships, but there are 7 teams with 20/1 or better odds, which I will list below:

League Of Legends World Championships Match Betting
Let’s look at some of the bets you can make on each individual match. I will be using the odds from the Play-In Stage 1 matches. Here’s a look at all of the bets available on the play-in matches. These same bets will be available on the matches at each stage.
Match Winner 2-Way
Betting on the match winner straight up is the most basic and popular type of League of Legends wager.
Here’s an example of a match winner bet using the play-in match between Gambit Esports and Lyon Gaming. In this match Gambit Esports is the favourite at odds of 1.66. A $100 bet on Gambit Esports would pay out $166 ($66 winnings) if they get the job done.
