CDL Stage 5 Week 1 - Day 4 Preview

Charlie Cater

The final stage of the 2021 Call of Duty League season continues tonight, with three more amazing matches. Here’s the odds, and our preview.

LA Thieves (1.36) vs London Royal Ravens (2.90)

The new look LA Thieves roster surprised the Call of Duty League as they took down the New York Subliners in a marathon of a series earlier in the week. John has returned to the pro level and looks better than ever, while Drazah seems like he can play any role and do it all.

As for the London Royal Ravens, they suffered a 3-0 loss to Atlanta FaZe. While the scoreline looks dominant, the Ravens could have easily had maps one and two in their favour, however some clutch moments let them down. London struggle to close out maps, and we think the Thieves will take advantage.

Toronto Ultra (1.21) vs Minnesota ROKKR (3.95)

Toronto Ultra have been one of the best teams in the league since Stage 2, and we expect them to get off to a hot start in Stage 5. Taking on ROKKR won't be easy, but Toronto’s teamwork is impeccable, and they should take this matchup.

Minnesota ROKKR could take this matchup if they get off to a good start, and take the control. Maps 1 and 3 are extremely important in this series if Minnesota want to upset, and start the Stage 2-0.

OpTic Chicago (1.76) vs New York Subliners (1.96)

OpTic Chicago came out hot against Paris Legion to take a 3-0 win to kick off Stage 5. With Champs around the corner, this is without a doubt the most important Stage for OpTic all year, and they’re playing like it is too.

New York suffered a 3-2 defeat to the LA Thieves in their first match with Asim since the Major. The Subliners looked uncoordinated, and their solo pushes costed them. Their teamwork needs to be better against OpTic, or they will take advantage.
