Drop rates can be seen in the League of Legends client.

The League drop rates are hidden in plain sight before you can purchase any of the in-game loot. For any single loot item, Riot listed the items and percentages once you click them.

For bundled items, the same applies except you have to click into the drop rates but all the numbers should look identical.
