LCK 2023 Spring Split Winner Outrights Predictions, Odds & Picks

We are just a few days away from the return of the LCK, the league that boasts the best League of Legends teams in the world.

Sure, we could say that the LPL is up there next to the LCK, but after seeing that the 2022 Worlds semifinals were made up of 3 Korean teams and only 1 Chinese team, it’s hard to not get excited about the 2023 LCK Spring Split.

If we take coaching staff into account, every single team in the league made significant changes, including current world champions DRX and top-tier teams like T1 and Gen.G. Teams like Damwon, LSB, and KT, which were considered strong contenders last split, made some interesting moves during the off-season.

Another thing that will get a lot of people excited is a brand-new roster that enters the playoffs picture and has a really solid chance at taking the title this upcoming spring split.

We’ll be going over the most important changes and talking about which teams and players are looking the best heading into the upcoming 2023 season and we are going to check out some of the outright odds for the LCK 2023 Spring Split.

Favorites To Win

T1 is still considered the strongest team in Korea

Due to all of the roster changes that happened during the off-season, the Korean overlords T1 (+250) are currently considered the favorites to win the spring split, according to the odds. While they didn’t make any changes in the player department, they promoted coach Roach to the main roster, and former PSG Talon coach Tom joined T1. We know what this 5-man roster is capable of, and if they keep improving and the meta fits them, it’s safe to say they’ll roll over the LCK.

Now let’s jump to Hanwha Life Esports (+300), the team that I really believe will show the biggest improvement this season thanks to the massive changes they made to the roster. Two world champions in Kingen and Zeka, and an ADC that is considered to be one of the absolute best in the world, Viper, what’s there not to like about this roster? Clid, who is coming off a decent LPL run, and Life, an up-and-coming support round up the roster.

Right next to HLE we can find DWG KIA (+300), who also made significant changes to their lineup. Canna joined DK after a short stint with NS RedForce, where he was definitely the best performer of the team. 2022 world champion and beloved ADC Deft also joins the team, forming a solid bot lane alongside Kellin. Most importantly, Canyon and Showmaker will remain in the team, which is good news for their fans as this duo was the main pillar for DWG KIA during the 2022 season.

Sleeper Picks

Kim “Aiming” Ha-ram, ADC for KT Rolster

There is one team that, while still considerably weaker, might be able to pull off a few upsets against any of the top-3 teams we mentioned before. KT Rolster (+1200), a team that barely missed a Worlds spot last year, brought in some reinforcements, though it’s still too early to tell if they’ll look better than last year.

Aiming, who was the determining factor why this team was able to even reach playoffs in the first place, is playing one more year for KT. This time around, he’ll have Lehends accompanying him in the bot lane. Lehends was considered the best enchanter-support player, which definitely fits Aiming’s playstyle. At the same time, they brought in Kiin, a player that further enhances KT’s 2022 playstyle, given that he doesn’t rely on receiving a big amount of resources.

You might be wondering where all of this leaves Gen.G (+700). Well, if I’m being completely honest, I don’t think that Gen.G is going to be anywhere closer to where they were during the 2022 season. They lost Ruler and Lehends, one of the strongest bot lanes we’ve ever seen in the entire LCK history. Sure, they still have Chovy and Peanut, who dominated the regular season, but towards the end of the season, their weaknesses became very clear.

LCK 2023 Spring Split Winner Prediction

Park “Viper” Do-hyeon, ADC for Hanwha Life Esports

Unlike in the LPL 2023 Spring Split, I don’t think that there is a very obvious candidate to win in the LCK. Sure T1 is looking great, but I think that DWG KIA and HLE both have great chances at taking the title if things go the right way for them. I’m particularly thrilled to see how Kingen, Zeka, and Viper will perform under the Hanwha Life banner.

If we are being completely realistic, Gen.G and DRX don’t have what it takes to win the split, which leaves us with T1, DK, and HLE. While I admire what T1 was capable of doing at Worlds, I don’t think that they’ll be able to keep the ball rolling until summer split arrives. This is a common trend for T1. Right after they look amazing, some sort of downfall follows shortly.

That is one of the main reasons why I think Hanwha Life will be able to take the crown this upcoming spring split. Who would’ve thought that a team that finished dead last two splits in a row now have a clear shot at winning the title. Ultimately, if Zeka, and Viper pop off, there is noone in this league capable of stopping them.
