One of the world’s biggest e-sports tournaments is kicking off this weekend in a format even bigger than last year and the excitement is understandably at its peak.

League of Legends

Otherwise known as the ‘LOL’ or ‘Worlds’, the League of Legends is an annual competition consisting of the group stage, knockout tournament and the Grand Final.

Hosted by the game’s developers, Riot Games, this year’s Worlds are set to start on 23 September in China with a Play-In Stage 1, whereas the tournament spreads all the way to 4 November where the highly-anticipated LOL World Championship Finals 2017 will determine the big winner.

And while the players around the globe wait for the patch to be unlocked, here is their chance to spice it all up by following this year’s action and – why not – setting up a responsible bet or two.

Punters will be delighted to hear that Bet365 has traditionally prepared a wide range of betting markets for the upcoming LOL World Championship so if you want to grab the very best odds for the upcoming tournament make sure to open an account with Bet365 through this link.

LOL Interesting Betting Markets

All of those interested in picking a bet for the Play-In Stage 1 can already choose anything from various standard markets but from special offers such as – Most Picked, Most Banned, Most Kills in a Map, Most Deaths in a Map, Most Assists in a Map and Most CS in a Map.

With a huge selection of teams competing for the coveted prize, the bet365 power rankings for this year’s edition of the League of Legends World Championship have pinpointed SK Telekom T1 as the clear-cut favourites to lift the trophy backing them at 7/4 betting odds.

The 2017 edition of the Worlds is the first time the International Wildcard Qualifier is no longer necessary with teams of the eight wildcard regions are allowed to compete in the first round of the Play-In stage together with sides from Europe (EU LCS), North America (NA LCS), China (LPL) and Taiwan – Hong Kong – Macau (LMS).

Korean champions SK Telecom T1 as the tournament’s favourites have obviously made the Korean region a top favourite at 2/9 betting odds to become a Region of Winner, whereas the hosts China stand at 5/1 price.

When talking about specials for the 2017 LOL Worlds, Bet365 has identified Jarvan IV, Xayah and Tristana for the Most Picked choices at the identical betting odds of 7/2.

With 4/1 betting odds, Tristana holds the banner for the Most Kills in a Map selection whereas it’s Twitch who follows with a 6/1 price slapped on the back.

Corki at 3/1 betting odds and Kogmaw with a 7/2 price are set as the frontrunners to inflict the Highest Total Damage to the Champs in a Map, which is another highly intriguing betting market offered at Bet365.
