Welcome to the second edition of the TrackingThePros’ LEC weekly report. Every week we will take a look at the current valuation for the LEC teams and the schedule they have ahead of them. Armed with this information, we will let you know of opportunities to increase your share value.
What went wrong and right in Week 5
Week 5’s bets were mainly oriented for Friday’s matches, but for this week we will also take into account Saturdays match schedule. What went right was Rogue upsetting Fnatic for a major profit. After it was announced the Misfits team was replaced by the academy team on Thursday, several players decided to all-in on the Rogue team. This earned players up to $23,892 in share value on Friday. However, the Rogue team messed up the baron fight against Misfits on Saturday and lost the game in a rough manner costing them $179 per share. Or up to $11,814 for the players who went all-in on the Rogue team (Me).
The other prediction we made, before the news of the Misfits Gaming main-team being replaced, was that Misfits Gaming could upset either of their opponents in the weekend. While on Friday they lost against Splyce, which lost Misfits Gaming $4 per share, they more than made up for it by beating Rogue on Saturday. Rogue’s value was at a near season-high after their upset against Fnatic, which caused them to lose a drastic amount of $179 per share. However, this was great news for users “Getmo” and “Matthew16”, who went all-in on Misfits and made it out with a record profit of $27,208.
What opportunities does week 6 bring
The first clear opportunity is SK Gaming. At the current lowest share-value of anyone in the league at $1,253, they have the most to gain. With matches against two top teams, G2 Esports, and Schalke 04, the team will have a tough weekend ahead. However, with the massive difference in share-value, upsetting either of these teams could earn you a great payout.
SK Gaming has a potential profit of $187 per share against Schalke. With G2’s stock value being even higher, these odds can be expected to exceed a potential ~$195 profit per share, while only risking $13 per share and ~$5 per share respectively.
While Misfits Gaming is an extreme wild-card in the league at the moment, this unknown could be the opportunity you need to win. If Misfits Gaming manages to upset Fnatic in the same manner as they did with Rogue last weekend, they could be the top earner of the weekend. Investing in Misfits Gaming could earn you a profit of $161 per share. Their first match against Fnatic is the risky one. However, their second match is up against Excel esports, who did not look good in the last several weeks. In the opinion of many who watch the LEC is that Excel is a free-win at this point. Even for the academy team of Misfits Gaming. The reason I think Misfits Gaming could be the investment here is that they have a good chance of winning two matches this weekend, as their stock-value is still very low from the failures of the main Misfits team.
Who do we avoid in week 6 of the LEC
Last week we avoided investing in G2, Splyce, and Fnatic. For more on the reasoning behind this, make sure to check out our blog post last week. This time, I believe we include Schalke in that list. They have an incredible amount to lose against SK Gaming, where they can lose $187 per share, and then face off against the third-place team in the league Splyce. Their earning potential for this weekend will not get you a place high on the leaderboards while risking a lot of your cash for future weeks.
Those are our investment recommendations for this week, be sure to invest your money wisely for the upcoming week of LEC matches! See you next time, and enjoy some great League of Legends.
