The Call of Duty League continues after a week with the Paris Legion home series after an entertaining Minnesota Rokkr series. We break down three predictions from the series’ opening games.
Florida Mutineers (1.19)
Firstly, Paris Legion aren’t a bad team, not by any means. They haven’t had results go their way, which has resulted in them slipping down to 8th in the Call of Duty League standings. They have won just 6 of 16 series, which will hurt their confidence and momentum significantly. They have won 29 of 64 games. Even though this is their home series, I can’t see them upsetting the might and consistency of the Florida Mutineers, who have now climbed up to fourth in the standings with a 13-8 series record. One of those wins was a 3-2 win against Chicago Huntsmen in the Minnesota home series last week. I’d expect them to carry on with that momentum and ease past Paris Legion, particularly in Search and Destroy.
Optic Gaming Los Angeles (2.18)
There isn’t a lot that separates these two teams. They have both made solid starts to their CoD League so far. New York Subliners are 9th with a 6-12 record, while Optic Gaming Los Angeles are ahead of them with a 7-11 record. Neither New York Subliners nor Optic Gaming Los Angeles took part in the Minnesota home series last weekend, so there is plenty of rest for both. There aren’t many clear factors that indicate New York have an advantage. As a result, I’ll take the bigger payout that comes with Optic Gaming.
Dallas Empire (1.38)
Dallas Empire had a fine showing in the Minnesota Rokkr series. They beat Minnesota 3-1 and Seattle Surge 3-0 and even took the league’s top team Atlanta Faze to five maps. This run of good form has carried them to 15-8 for the league to date. They have won 52 maps and lost 38, which is quite a solid record. London Royal Ravens, on the other hand, haven’t shown the same level of consistency as Dallas at any point or series in this league so far. London have won 8 of 17 matches so far, putting them sixth in the standings.
