Today we see Day 3 of the Call of Duty League Playoffs, here we see the second round of the winners bracket. So let’s take a look at the matchups and finally our predictions.
Chicago Huntsmen vs New York Subliners
The Chicago Huntsmen will be playing their first match at Playoffs tonight and this could leave them in a slight disadvantage. However, this is the Chicago Huntsmen. They are a top 4 team who have the potential to go all the way and win the Call of Duty League Championships. Their squad is looking better than ever with two of last year’s World Champions on the roster along with superstar Envoy and the T2P duo. This should be a close game, however this is an experienced team who will turn up the heat at Playoffs.
The New York Subliners narrowly closed out a 3-1 victory against the Minnesota Rokkr last night to gain their spot in Winners Round Two. Temp was the only New York player to go negative and that was only by 2 kills, showing that the Subliners were outslaying like usual and putting up another excellent performance.
In the head to head Chicago have the lead 3-2 with a 11-10 map record. However, Chicago have only gone to a game five in 8 of their 21 wins this season, as I favour the Chicago Huntsmen in this matchup, I’m going to take a Chicago Huntsmen ML and a Chicago Huntsmen -1.5 Handicap.
Pick: Chicago Huntsmen ML, 1.71 @ Midnite & Chicago Huntsmen -1.5, 2.58 @ Midnite
Florida Mutineers vs Toronto Ultra
The Florida Mutineers will play their first match at the Call of Duty League Playoffs tonight and with Astro MVP Candidate Skyz on their team they will be looking to make a statement. Florida proved themselves to be one of the best teams in the Call of Duty League this season and have to carry on that form if they are to defeat a strong Toronto Ultra team.
The Toronto Ultra are coming off the back of a strong 3-1 win against the London Royal Ravens. However, their win came courtesy of Zer0 being booted offline during map 4 while London were ahead which allowed them to play 5v4 and take the map 4 victory. While this was a lucky scenario for them, they played very well and showed that they can compete at the highest level. However, the Florida Mutineers are a level above the London Royal Ravens.
These teams trade one for one in the head to head however you have to favour the Florida Mutineers in this matchup. Florida have been one of the best teams all season and ties the Dallas Empire with 3 Home Series wins this season. Because of this, I have to back the Florida Mutineers with a ML bet.
Pick: Florida Mutineers ML, 1.65 @ Midnite
