2019 League Of Legends Worlds Semi-Finals: SKT vs G2 Betting Odds And Pick
SK Telecom T1 (SKT) Vs. G2 eSports (G2) Betting Odds And Prediction
For Western fans, this is the match they have been eagerly anticipating. Their last hope is in G2 eSports versus the most dominant team in League of Legends history, SK Telecom T1.
SKT And The G.O.A.T. – Faker
It’s impossible to follow the LoL eSports scene without knowing who Faker is. He’s the best player in history and is still driven to win. After a complete overhaul of SKT’s roster last year, this team was built to win the LoL World Championships.
It’s not all about “if Faker can carry” anymore.
G2 Roster Shift
On the other side, one of the most shocking roster changes happened for G2. They moved their star mid laner, Perkz, to the AD carry role. Added Caps, who many regard as the best mid laner, in the West.
G2 has a shot at doing something no other team has done, and that is to win every tournament of the year. So far, they’ve won EU Spring Split, EU Summer Split, and the Mid Season Invitational, where they beat the SKT team 3-2. They went on to sweep North America’s Team Liquid.

The lines open with SKT favored at -178 and G2 at +146. I feel that the linemakers are giving G2 a ton of credit for their past performances, but taking down SKT at Worlds is a whole different task.
SKT has not made the finals for any World Championship they’ve been in, and it doesn’t look like this time will be any different.
Analyzing The Teams
Much has changed from MSI until now.
SKT Roster Has Top Names
Even though G2 was dominant in their Summer Split, SKT turned a corner and showed the world how capable they are.
They crushed the playoffs and ended with a sweep of Griffin in the finals. During group stages, their only blemish was a loss to Fnatic.
They then easily beat Splyce 3-1 in the quarters to set up this rematch with G2.
G2’s most significant advantage is from their mid-laner,Caps, and their bot lane of Perkz and Mikyx.
Alas, SKT’s best players are their mid-laner Faker, and AD carry Teddy.
Strategies To Win
G2 relies on making early plays that they know can be 55-45 or 60-40 in their favor. This can lead to some volatility, which isn’t what a team wants against SKT.
SKT has built their franchise on controlled gameplay and waiting to turn a game on even the smallest mistakes by their opponents. While G2’s strategy does work with a lot of teams as shown in their quarterfinal match against DAMWON gaming, it isn’t likely to work here.
The games will look “close” until it’s not.
SKT Vs. G2 Semifinals Prediction
The most likely game that G2 could take is game three after SKT has gone up 2-0. Their backs are against the wall, and they could pull through for a game in front of their hometown fans.
Taking their moneyline there at +132 is a pretty good bet, but may not be good enough. This will be a fun series if G2 can keep it close, but I think SKT’s confidence and consistency will reign supreme yet again. The West will have to wait another year to get a shot at a World Championship.
SKT is a good bet to take at -159 with a final score of 3-1.
