Esports bookmakers have T1 priced as 1.25 favourites to defeat Weibo Gaming, who enter the LoL Worlds 2023 finals as 4.00 underdogs. At the offered price, Weibo Gaming are expected to win only 25% of the time, which is a relatively small number considering how good WBG have been so far.

  • Weibo Gaming entered LoL Worlds 2023 as one of the outsiders
  • T1 had a slow start to the tournament but found momentum in the latter stages
  • T1 already eliminated two other main favourites, LNG Esports and JD Gaming

Head to Head


T1 and Weibo Gaming have never met before.

Weibo Gaming Form


Weibo Gaming weren't expected to make it far at LoL Worlds 2023, but they proved all the doubters wrong and reached the big final. Admittedly, they had a relatively easy schedule early on, but en route to the finals, Weibo Gaming eliminated Bilibili Gaming and KT Rolster, which is nothing to sneeze at.

Much of Weibo Gaming's success so far is thanks to their top laner Kang "TheShy" Seung-lok, who is easily one of the top-performing players at the tournament and WBG's X-factor, who T1 will have to deal with if they want to succeed.

Weibo Gaming Squad & Team News


Weibo Gaming won't make any changes.

  • Kang "TheShy" Seung-lok – top lane
  • Wei "Weiwei" Bo-Han – jungle
  • Li "Xiaohu" Yuan-Hao – mid lane
  • Wang "Light" Guang-Yu – ADC
  • Liu "Crisp" Qing-Song – support

T1 Form


T1 had a slow start to the tournament, but they found traction later in the event, and now look like the best-performing team of LoL Worlds 2023. En route to the big finals, T1 crushed Bilibili Gaming LNG Esports, and they eliminated the tournament favourites JD Gaming – which alone indicates how strong this team is.

Entering the finals in red hot form, T1's success is mainly due to their adaptability and their ability to reinvent the meta, which allowed them to surprise their opponents so far in the knockout stage. With their special sauce, T1 are very difficult to prepare for, and it definitely helps that T1 have Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok as the shot caller.

T1 Squad & Team News


No changes for T1.

  • Choi "Zeus" Woo-je – top lane
  • Mun "Oner" Hyeon-jun – jungle
  • Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok – mid lane
  • Lee "Gumayusi" Min-hyeong – ADC
  • Ryu "Keria" Min-seok – support

Verdict

On paper, T1 look like the clear winners. They have the players to do well and have managed to reinvent the meta, which should give them an edge no matter which team they play. Moreover, T1 are in exceptional form and as we know, it’s tough to stop in-form teams at LoL Worlds (remember DRX in 2022?).

However, we’re getting 4.00 on Weibo Gaming, which is a massive number. T1 were favourites in the finals before, even last year, and yet they ended up choking. That doesn’t mean that T1 will choke again, but it only goes to show that favourites don’t always win.

We must also consider that Weibo Gaming are actually good enough to put up a fight here, and they have side choice, which will help their chances to cook up a surprise. Whether Weibo Gaming can actually surprise T1 and deal with their unique drafts remains to be seen, but at 4.00, Weibo Gaming are way underrated.
