The CDL Super Week action seems to never end with three more matches tonight.
London Royal Ravens vs LA Thieves
London are currently 0-3 in the group following a dominant loss against the New York Subliners. The games don’t get any easier though, coming up against flawless, 3-0 LA Thieves. While London we’re unlucky as they took last year’s World Champs Dallas Empire to a game five, this was due to an uncharacteristically poor performance from them.
LA Thieves have looked dominant, and we don’t see London getting a foot in this series. Therefore, we’re backing -1.5, just in case they steal a Hardpoint.
Pick: LA Thieves -1.5, 1.35 @ Betway
Paris Legion vs Toronto Ultra
Paris Legion dominated in an excellent 3-0 sweep against the Florida Mutineers.Rookie Fire has been performing consistently well in Paris’ matches, and could be a key factor here. Along with Skrapz, who has been playing out of his mind recently.
Toronto Ultra seem to have cemented themselves as a top 6 team for this season. Their aggressive playstyle in Search and Destroy saw them beat Atlanta FaZe in SnD, while their Hardpoint continues to look good. This series could be close, so we’re sticking with the ML, but also taking Toronto Ultra Map 2.
Pick: Toronto Ultra ML, 1.40 @ Betway & Toronto Ultra Map 2 ML, 1.65 @ Betway
New York Subliners vs Dallas Empire
New York look as if they could be one of the best teams in the league as of now. Their dominant 3-0’s against London and Minnesota has seen Asim perform at the highest standard, and make NYSL look dangerous. With Dallas looking shaky, they could definitely take this series.
Dallas Empire continue to look like one of the best teams in the game, however, they’ve recently dipped in form. With Huke frying at the moment, Dallas will want to take advantage of his excellent gameplay and make him their star player for this match. While Dallas won 3-0 in the Kickoff Classic, New York are playing like an entirely different team, and this could be a very close game.
However, Dallas Empire are in a position where they cannot afford to lose this match. If they do, they risk starting in losers for the Major, and that is something that they will not want to happen. We see NYSL taking a map, so we’re backing a small stake on Dallas Empire to win 3-1, along with a Dallas Empire ML.
