Saturday Esports - League of Legends Worlds matches (League of Legends)

Four teams have already booked their spots in the knockout stage of the League of Legends World Championship and, by the end of Saturday, another two teams will join them.

Groups A and B have concluded at this year's Worlds with T1 and Edward Gaming coming out on top in the former and JD Gaming and DWG KIA progressing from the latter.

And on Saturday, the teams which make up Group C are set to play their final matches in the group stage.

Rogue and DRX currently lead the way but there is still plenty to play for and Top Esports will fancy their chances of causing a stir, although GAM Esports have had a tough time of it and sit rock bottom of the section.

Here is a look at some of the best bets to have on the matches taking place in Group C on Saturday.

OddsRogue -400, GAM Esports +300

Of the four teams to have already qualified for the Worlds knockout phase, two come from China's LPL and two play in South Korea's LCK, but Rogue are in line to become the first side outside of Asia to make the quarter-finals of this year's event.

They currently lead the way in Group C with a 3-0 win-loss record and are well-fancied to beat struggling GAM Esports, who have lost all three of their group assignments.

A 33-minute win over South Korean big guns Top Esports, courtesy of some fine team-fighting, was a particular highlight for Rogue, who look about right at -400 to win this contest.

When these teams met in their second match of the group stage, Rogue racked up 14 kills compared to GAM's five but this time around GAM have little to play for and that margin could grow even wider.

Rogue's confidence is sky-high at the moment and they are worth a bet at -9.5 on the kill handicap at -120.

GAM in for a tough evening of matches

OddsGAM Esports +700, Top Esports -1600

Vietnamese qualifiers GAM Esports knew they would be up against it at this year's Worlds - especially given the strength of Group C - and they could face the real possibility of concluding the group phase with a 0-6 record.

The team have been known in the past to train with some of the LPL's big guns - like upcoming opponents Top Esports - and that has improved their game on a tactical front.

But at this year's Worlds, communication has been off and the players are reportedly struggling to adjust to the North American time-zone.

Top Esports also have work to do, having lost to both DRX and Rogue in their opening few matches but they will be more determined than ever to beat GAM Esports.

The -1600 about them winning looks right and when these sides last met, Top Esports won the kill count 23-6 and destroyed ten towers so another dominant performance could be on the cards.

One way to play it could be to back over 11.5 towers in the match at +120 given Top Esports's success on that front in the last meeting, while the LPL side could also be worth a bet at -11.5 on the kill handicap at -120.

Rogue ready for DRX

OddsDRX -150, Rogue +110

Rogue are clearly a team for the big occasions. The LEC outfit have not had a barnstorming 2022 by any means and they were largely unconvincing in the LEC Summer regular season a few months ago.

However, when it came to the LEC Summer playoffs, they went up a gear, swatting aside Fnatic 3-1 in the lower-bracket final and G2 Esports 3-0 in the final to be continental champions.

And coming into this year's Worlds, not many gave them a chance of success but on the biggest stage, they have defied expectations.

They are unlikely to let top spot go without a fight in Group C and a win over DRX would be huge.

Rogue were seriously impressive in the meeting between the sides at the start of the group stage, racking up 20 kills compared to DRX's 10, and there is no reason why they cannot win this tussle again. Back Rogue at +110.
