Esports: LCS Summer 2022 Saturday matches

Only two weeks remain in the North American LCS Summer 2022 and the league standings are gaining greater clarity with every match.

Going into the penultimate week of the split Evil Geniuses lead the way and look the most likely to secure the top seed in the playoffs, while Immortals (3-10) and Dignitas (2-11) are out of the race for the top six entirely.

The action gets under way on Saturday night with Golden Guardians, who are looking to bounce back after defeat to Team SoloMid, taking on 100 Thieves, before Evil Geniuses take to the stage in the second match of the night.

The day concludes with Team Liquid and FlyQuest locking horns in what is expected to be a close affair.

Odds

Golden Guardians +200, 100 Thieves -275

If when the LCS Summer season has concluded, Golden Guardians have not secured a spot in the playoffs, they will surely look back on defeat to Team SoloMid in week six as a missed opportunity.

Following that result, Golden Guardians now find themselves level with TSM in the LCS Summer standings with a 4-9 win-loss record and their hopes of making the top six are fading fast.

And the situation may not get any better in week seven, which they start with a match against in-form 100 Thieves.

The Thieves are on a five-match winning streak in the LCS Summer and are in the hunt for the top playoff seed.

Their top laner Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho is among the frontrunners in the race for the LCS Summer 2022 MVP, having picked up four 'Player of the Match' awards, and they look a solid enough bet to win this match.

OddsEvil Geniuses -400, TSM +275

Team SoloMid pulled off one of the shock results of week six in the LCS Summer 2022, overpowering Golden Guardians, but their overall performance in the split has not been great and they could be out of their depth against Evil Geniuses.

Evil Geniuses have been the standout side in the LCS Summer this year, winning 11 of their 13 matches so far, and they are in pole position to land the top playoff seed.

They rose to the top in the LCS Spring earlier in 2022, finishing fourth in the regular season, before powering through the playoffs and they look even stronger this time around.

TSM will be pleased with their latest scalp, but they had lost each of their previous three matches beforehand against Team Liquid, Immortals and 100 Thieves.

At odds-on for the win Evil Geniuses are not worth backing and a better option could be to back them at -8.5 on the kill handicap at -120.

OddsTeam Liquid -250, FlyQuest +175 

It is hard to get excited about either Team Liquid or FlyQuest right now and neither side are worth backing when they clash at the start of week seven in the LCS Summer.

Team Liquid simply lack consistency, having lost three of their last five matches in the LCS Summer, and it is hard to see them coming good in the playoffs.

As for FlyQuest, they are maybe a touch overpriced for this contest, but their confidence could also be through the floor after two comprehensive losses to Evil Geniuses and Cloud9 left them clinging on to a top-six berth.

Neither side makes much appeal in the match result markets, but this could be a cagey clash and the best betting angle could be under 22.5 kills at -120.

Only one of FlyQuest's last eight matches have gone over that kill line and given there is not a lot between these opponents based on current form, it could again be a clash relatively short of action.
