At least H2K don't have to face the top two contenders in the semifinals. ROX and SKT will meet Friday (6 PM ET) at Madison Square Garden, with SKT a slight favorite at –140 on the moneyline. Then H2K will battle with Samsung on Saturday, also at the Garden at 6 PM ET. It'll be an uphill climb for Europe's lone survivor at +275.
Each of these semifinal matches has a series of prop bets attached, including alternate spreads and totals, Correct Score, First Kill, and who will win Map 1. Again, SKT are slim –130 favorites over ROX to win their Map 1, while Samsung are clear –250 favorites in their semifinal. The winners will collide October 29 in the Final at Staples Center in Los Angeles. SKT won the Championship in 2013 and 2015, with Samsung Galaxy White prevailing in 2014.
E-Sports Odds: SK Telecom T1 Favored at LoL Championship
It's down to the final four at the 2016 League of Legends World Championship, and South Korean rivals SK Telecom T1 (+120) and ROX Tigers (+130) are the favorites to win the title. Samsung Galaxy, also from South Korea, are a close third at +400, followed by London's H2k-Gaming at +2500.
Samsung Galaxy have the easier path to next week's Final at Staples Center; they'll play H2K this Saturday at Madison Square Garden to see who advances, while the top two contenders will meet in Friday's semifinal. Both matches start at 6 PM ET.
