Tonight the CDL Super Week continues with three more matches. Here’s our preview.
Paris Legion vs Florida Mutineers
Paris Legion are struggling at the bottom of the CDL standings so far. With two losses under their belt, they’ll be looking to bounce back, and take their first win of the season. Hardpoint and Control seem to be Paris’ best modes, so if they can take map one, that’ll be massive for their chances.
However, Florida Mutineers look back to themselves with their victory over the LA Guerrillas. Owakening performed to the standard of his 2020 season, and Florida look back to their best. Neptune’s aggressive SMG playstyle may be hard for Paris to handle. However, Paris Legion don’t look too far adrift, and we’re not yet convinced by Florida, so we’re taking Over 3.5 Maps.
Pick: Over 3.5 Maps, 1.60 @ Betway
New York Subliners vs London Royal Ravens
New York Subliners suffered a 3-0 defeat to Los Angeles Thieves in their old match of the season so far. However, this was an extremely close match, and could’ve gone either way. We aren’t sure on New York’s true potential just yet, so this is a great match to see where they match up.
London Royal Ravens will need to improve on their previous 3-2 loss to Seattle Surge. After an 80 point lead in map one, London managed to lose, and this was a major factor in their defeat. However, the team looked good and Alexx appeared to be their best player, so there’s a real chance they take this match. However, we’re playing it safer with a +1.5 handicap.
Pick: London Royal Ravens +1.5, 1.85 @ Betway
Seattle Surge vs Minnesota Rokkr
Seattle Surge may be more of the problem than first through, with 240hz Gunless now on the scene. His 40 kill Map one against the London Royal Ravens may be the start of their resurgence as a team. They looked good, and this confidence could make this match very competitive.
Minnesota Rokkr will be living off their victory against Dallas Empire last week. They stole a respawn to force a game five, where their Search and Destroy prowess carried them through once again. Rokkr will need to do this again to take this series. While Rokkr look extremely good, we believe that Seattle have a great chance of forcing a game five here.
