CDL 2021 Major 1 - Day 3 Preview

Charlie Cater

The CDL 2021 Major continues tonight with four more excellent games. Here’s the odds and our preview of the matches.

Atlanta FaZe (1.18) vs Los Angeles Guerrillas (4.00)

Atlanta FaZe are 5-0 in the season so far, and they look absolutely dominant. Simp and aBeZy have been firing on all cylinders since the start and are looking like the best sub duo in the game once again.

An extremely strong performance from the LA Guerrillas last night saw them defeat local rivals LA Thieves 3-0. This match included a 5-2 comeback from the Guerrillas in map 2 to take a 2-0 series lead, and dominate the match overall. This was a great performance from the Guerrillas, however FaZe are still big favourites to take this match.

OpTic Chicago (1.60) vs Dallas Empire (2.12)

Following a quick 3-0 sweep over New York Subliners, OpTic will have all the momentum going into this match. This was an incredible display from OpTic, with them absolutely dominating the match. They are clinical on Checkmate Hardpoint too, so if that comes up in this series it would be a good map bet.

Dallas Empire secured a reverse sweep against New York, proving they’re still at the top. Their 3-0 against LA Thieves was also dominant, and Dallas look like top competitors. This match will be very close, and Map bets could be the better call.

Florida Mutineers (1.80) vs New York Subliners (1.84)

Florida Mutineers looked clinical as they closed out a 3-1 victory against Paris Legion. However, they came out flat once again, starting the series 1-0 down. Against a strong New York Subliners roster, this is something they cannot afford to do again.

New York took a dominant 3-0 loss to OpTic Chicago. This was both a poor performance from New York, and a strong performance from OpTic. However, this will mentally affect the Subliners and they’ll need to come out hot. NYSL look good in all modes, if they can take the first map, they’ll be in a great spot to take the series.

LA Thieves (1.48) vs Toronto Ultra (2.36)

The Los Angeles Thieves suffered a 3-0 loss to their local rivals the Guerrillas in a game that no one expected. This was a complete collapse from the Thieves, with them being 5-2 up in map 2 before dropping the map and consequently the series. They’ll need to be back on their game tonight.

Toronto clutched up against Minnesota to take a 3-2 series win. They looked good in Hardpoint, however their Control was lacklustre. Overall, it was a good series from Toronto, but the LA Thieves are a much better respawn team than Minnesota, so they may rely on the SnD.
