Just a few weeks back it seemed like OpTic Chicago would win the Stage 1 Major, but things didn’t go as planned for the veteran lineup. After demolishing New York Subliners (3-0) and suffering a narrow 2-3 loss against Dallas Empire, OpTic came back swinging and took down Los Angeles Thieves (3-1), only to get schooled by Subliners, who won the rematch and eliminated OpTic from the tournament in fourth place.

Paris Legion’s run through the CDL Major was short-lived, as they did not make it further than their opening bout against Florida Mutineers (1-3), which makes it hard to be overly optimistic about the French team heading into CDL Stage 2. The Legion even struggled in their last meeting with OpTic (0-3), although they deserve some praise for forcing OpTic to 10 rounds on S&D (4-6) and to five rounds on Control (2-3).

OpTic perform well enough on respawn, but they need to improve their S&D, which is one game mode where Paris can potentially steal a point. This feels like an easy win for OpTic, but we don’t believe they will come out unharmed.

FLORIDA MUTINEERS vs MINNESOTA RØKKR CDL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Mutineers -163.93 at BetOnline | RØKKR +128 at BetOnline

Both sides field very competitive rosters, but out of the two, it’s Florida Mutineers who seem to have a higher ceiling. They’re already a very good team that needs just a little bit more polishing, namely on the respawns.

At the same time, we would not count out Minnesota RØKKR either, as they are another one of the teams that have the potential to rise out of mid-table. At the moment, however, the RØKKR seem a bit slow and the new QBZ meta doesn’t seem to suit them.

It’s only a matter of time before things start to come together for the RØKKR, and with the way Preston “Priestahh” Greiner has been playing, they are bound to improve. Whether or not the Minnesota squad can defeat the Mutineers, however, is another question.

DALLAS EMPIRE vs SEATTLE SURGE CDL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CS:GO Betting Odds: Empire -714.29 at BetOnline | Surge +401 at BetOnline

You don’t need to overcomplicate things for this match, since the CoD esports betting odds paint a clear enough picture of how things should play out. Although we believe Group B has the potential to see a few more upsets than usual, we have to come to terms with the fact that Seattle Surge are playing poor CoD of late, whereas Dallas Empire are expected to end the group at the top, next to OpTic Chicago.

Seattle are, in a way, similar to the Minnesota squad, as they have the talent and potential to improve but are not looking too sharp at the moment. We might see the Surge rise up later in the season when they figure some things out, but as it stands now, we hold them in low regard.
