Let’s begin this week’s preview of the top eSports betting available for the next seven days with a quick review of one of the biggest surprises in League of Legends eSports for a while.League of Legends

That shock came in the two-day 2015 League of Legends KeSPA Cup, an 14-team tournament between a group of the best Korean-based League of Legends teams.  With the top two seeds, the all-conquering SK Telecom T1 and KT Rolster seeded into the quarter finals, the remaining 12 teams fought it out in the first round over six matches to join the other two in the quarter finals.

At the quarter finals stage both KT Rolster and SK Telecom T1 progressed by 2-1 scorelines but then things got very interesting in the semi finals.

In the first semi final, KT Rolster took on another outstanding LoL team in CJ Entus and after a hard-fought game it was CJ Entus who progressed to the final 2-1. A small shock but that was nothing compared to what was to follow.

As in the second semi final, team Ever, who were the underdogs in the last four, took on the mighty SK Telecom T1. Nobody gave Ever much of a chance, but they stunned the favourites defeating them in two straight games to claim a place in the final.

However, in the final Ever showed that this result was no fluke as they crushed CJ Entus 3-0 to earn themselves the top prize of 40 million Korean Won, as well as the coveted spot in the IEM Season X in Cologne which will take place in December.
