The play-ins stage starts on April 4th, where the 16 teams will split into four groups in a double round-robin. The top two from each group go to Knockouts, where the best four qualify for the second phase (matches will be Bo3).

- April 5th
- April 7th
At this point, the 16 teams left will go at it again in a double round-robin, with the top two of each group advancing to the next stage. Afterward, the group Stage will begin on April 11th with a Bo1 format for matches. These matches will be the best for LoL esports betting.
- April 11th

EMEA Masters Spring 2023 Teams to Watch
The play-in matches are essential viewing for anyone betting on League of Legends odds. While the top teams have already qualified for the group stage, a couple of dark horses could make a run during the play-in stage.
Four teams are to watch during the EMEA Masters Spring 2023 tournament. Two are from the play-in stage, and two are in the group stage.
Play-in Stage Teams
KRC Genk Esports (+10000)
Genk esports is the esports division of the Belgium football club KRC Genk. They dominate the Elite Series and the other regional leagues they compete in yearly. However, they have not done well in any of the Master’s tournaments they’ve competed in. Although, this year could be different as they’ve built a new team based on their French powerhouse Jungle, Guertas.
Aegis is one of the newest teams competing in the EMEA Masters Spring 2023. They are the babies of the tournament! As an esports organization, Aegis formed in late 2022 and filled out the squad in January. Despite being so young, they still placed third in the LFL Spring 2023. They could be one of the dark horses to make it through the group stage.
Group Stage Teams
FUT Esports (+7500)
Like Aegis in the play-in stage, FUT Esports are one of the newest teams in the EMEA fold. The EMEA Masters Spring 2023 is their first major tournament. Surprisingly, they ran through the TCL Winter 2023 and placed second after suffering a single loss. They are a big esports organization that knows how to win, so expect big results from FUT.
LDLC OL (+1500)
The French super team, LDLC OL, is partnered with the massive French football club Olympique Lyonnais. They are one of the best teams in the tournament and have the pedigree to back it up. Last year they placed first in the Master’s Spring and second in the Master’s Summer tournaments. They just underwent a squad overhaul but built around their legendary Bot, Alan Roger, who has been with the team for eight years. We expect them to make another run to the Grand Final.Follow us on Twitter
