We’re down to the final four teams at the Korean Esports Association (KeSPA) Cup 2017. The semis round is definitely heating up as non-stop action is set to begin.
Samsung Galaxy will face KT Rolster in a best-of-three series for the finals spot. Samsung continued its winning streak after sweeping the quarterfinals match against MVP. SSG was the Worlds 2017 champion and expectations for them to win were low during the League tournament. Will the Koreans continue to dominate as the number one League of Legends team?
KT Rolster also swept E8W during the quarterfinal stage. KT did not qualify for the Worlds, but the team is still a competitive team. Back in the 2017 LCK Summer playoffs, KT placed third in the tournament after bringing the legendary team, SKT to 5 games but could not successfully win the game.
Samsung is the favorite to win the series with 1.67 odds and KT with 2.23 odds. But, if you’re into creative bets like spreads, first blood, and map wins, Nitrogensports.eu offers side bets like these. The total kills for this series is 19.5, and the First Blood is pretty much a coin toss with KT -116 and SSG with -110.
SK Telecom1 will be battling Longzhu Gaming, in a best-of-three series, to advance to the finals round. This series has one of the greatest narratives of KeSPA Cup 2017. Faker, along with SKT teammates, will face former teammate and jungler, Peanut in this semis matchup and the first time after being left off the roster. SKT took a big risk after signing an aggressive jungler in Peanut. And even though he is one of the strongest junglers in League, SKT had trouble meshing with his playing style and Peanut usually finished games with no impact at all. Now that both teams have changed playing style, we are sure to witness one of League’s greatest matches.
SKT’s quarterfinals series against Griffin took 3 games and SKT looked a little bit shaky during the matches. But, Faker seems to be headstrong on winning and will not allow anything to go wrong. Can Faker carry SKT back to greatness again?
Longzhu met Jin Air in the quarterfinal stages, and the new super team did not waste any time, took control of the entire series and swept Jin Air 2-0. Will the reunion of former teammates, Peanut, PraY, and GorillA lead LZ to success?
LZ is the favorite to win and advances to the semis with 1.66 odds but SKT isn’t too far ahead with 2.24 odds to win. SKT will want to win this and set-up a revenge match against their Worlds loss to SSG. Can the legendary team pull it off?

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
