The LPL Spring 2022 LOL Pro League is nearing the end of its second week, and here we have some esports betting picks from the competition for the coming weekend. 

If you like esports, these competitions must feel like Christmas. The LPL Spring 2022 LOL has two to three games a day for two months.

And taking part is all your favourite teams, who are competing against each other for a huge cash prize, ensuring that no quarter is given, and there is drama all the way to the bitter end.

Unfortunately for Canadian fans, the competition is on early in the morning. But diehard esports fans will have no problem rising to see their favourite teams in action.

Phoenix To Maintain 100% Record 

The first match I'm going to look at is the clash between JD Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix. 

  • JD Gaming v FunPlus Phoenix
  • 4am ET
  • Saturday, January 22nd, 2022

FunPlus Phoenix has won three from three so far. Their maps aggregate is 6-1. They've won 2-0 against both LGD Gaming and Anyone's Legend, and in their tournament-opening match-up, they defeated Royal Never Give Up 2-1. 

On Saturday Phoenix comes up against JD Gaming, who so far has won once, and lost twice. They sit 13th in the table overall, and could well do with a win to get themselves back in contention for the playoffs. Even though it's still early days, there is nothing to be gained from falling behind at this stage! 

FunPlus Phoenix is 1.22 with Betway to win the match-up. In the handicap market, they are 1.85 from a -1.5 start. While in the maps over and under, over 2.5 is 2.10, with under 2.5 at 1.60. 

I'm not quite confident enough with Phoenix to take them to win on the handicap market. So I'm just going for them to win outright at 1.22 with Betway.

EDward Gaming To Inflict Second Straight Defeat On OMG

The next match on the roster sees Oh My God (OMG) taking on EDward Gaming.

  • OMG v EDward Gaming
  • 6am ET
  • Saturday, January 22nd, 2022

OMG started the competition like a runaway train. They won their first three matches 2-0 apiece and looked anything but the team that struggled in last year's tournament.

Unfortunately for them, they came down to earth with a bump on Thursday, when they lost 2-1 to Bilibili Gaming.

OMG come up against an in-form EDward Gaming in this match-up. EDward Gaming has won all three of their matches so far and has a maps aggregate score of 6-1.

In the betting, EDward Gaming is 1.15 to win the match outright. In the handicap market, they are 1.55 from a -1.5 start.

RNG Good Value On Handicap

Moving onto Sunday, and it's the turn of Royal Never Give Up. RNG as they are also known is taking on Invictus Gaming in the second match of the day. 

  • Royal Never Give Up v Invictus Gaming
  • 6 am ET
  • Sunday, January 23rd, 2022

RNG is the defending champions and as alluded to earlier, they have already lost this season. 

The Royals bounced back well from their 2-1 opening match defeat by beating JD Gaming 2-1 last Friday. They then followed that up with a 2-0 win over ThunderTalk Gaming (SinoDragon) on Monday. 

As for Invictus Gaming, they have a 1-2 win/loss record so far. They started with a 2-0 win over ThunderTalk Gaming. This was followed by successive 2-0 defeats to OMG and LNG Esports.

I can't see Invictus getting anything out of the defending champions and tournament favourites, and I'm taking RNG (-1.5) to win on the handicap at 1.75.

Top Esports To End Victory Five's Winning Streak

For my final esports pick of the weekend, I'm looking at the match between Victory Five and Top Esports.  

  • Victory Five v Top Esports
  • 8 am ET
  • Sunday, January 23rd, 2022

Top Esports has a 2-1 record so far in this year's competition, while Victory Five have won two from their two matches played.

Victory Five's two wins have both been close. They beat Team WE 2-1 in their opener, and then followed that up with another 2-1 win, this time over Rare Atom. 

Top Esports started off with a surprise 2-0 defeat to Rare Atom. But followed that up with 2-1 wins over both Ultra Prime and Team WE.

Top Esports is 1.57 with Sports Interaction to win this match outright, and I think that is good enough odds for my final pick.
