These sides last met way back in January during the CoD League 2021 Kickoff tournament, where the London Royal Ravens won 3-2. But since that was an exhibition event to celebrate CDL’s one-year anniversary, we shouldn’t put too much weight on the result.

The Royal Ravens enter the CDL Stage 3 Major after claiming fifth place in the group stage with a 2-3 record and 10-12 map differential. Although they failed to win more than half of their games, Sean “Seany” O’Connor and co. still forced Atlanta FaZe and the New York Subliners to five maps, which is nothing to sneeze at.

On the other side, we have the Paris Legion, who finished the group stage in sixth with a 1-4 record. Their poor run doesn’t surprise us one bit, since they have been struggling throughout the whole season, and it doesn’t look as though that will change anytime soon.

London are a much better team than what their seeding would suggest, and they are definitely stronger than the shaky Paris. Things just don’t seem to be working out for the Legion, which is why we have a hard time believing they can keep this one close.

LOS ANGELES GUERRILLAS vs SEATTLE SURGE CDL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CoD Betting Odds: Guerrillas -285.71 at BetOnline | Surge +198 at BetOnline
When: May 13, 2021 at 13:30 PDT

The Seattle Surge ended the CDL Stage 3 group stage with a 0-5 record, but we wouldn’t overreact to that number. Since adding Jacob “Decemate” Cato to their roster, Seattle have gained the SMG presence they were lacking and now look a far more competitive side.

On the other hand, one could argue that the Los Angeles Guerrillas are a bit overrated heading into this match. They enjoyed some success after adding Martin “Cheen” Chino to the active lineup in April, but they have not been very consistent with their showings after that short-lived honeymoon phase.

Seattle might have struggled in Stage 3 so far, but they certainly have the tools to win on Thursday. Given the odds available at leading Call of Duty betting sites, we don’t need to think twice before siding with the outsiders.

ATLANTA FAZE vs DALLAS EMPIRE CDL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CoD Betting Odds: FaZe -454.55 at BetOnline | Empire +189 at BetOnline

The Dallas Empire are coming off a big 3-1 victory against the Minnesota RØKKR, which might suggest that they have found their long-lost form. What that score doesn’t show, however, is just how close that match was.

Dallas won the series with 250-232 on Moscow – Hardpoint, 6-4 on Miami – S&D, 2-3 on Raid – Control, and 250-177 on Apocalypse – Hardpoint. A closer look at those numbers reveals that the Empire weren’t really that much better than Minnesota.

Atlanta FaZe have had a few slip-ups during CDL Stage 3 group play, but they have found their form just in time to make a run for their second CDL Major title. Although we like exploring options on the underdogs, this is one of those matches where you have to bite the bullet and trust the favourites to do what they’re expected to.

FLORIDA MUTINEERS vs LOS ANGELES THIEVES CDL BETTING & MATCH DETAILS

CoD Betting Odds: Mutineers +101 at BetOnline | Thieves -136.99 at BetOnline

Despite losing their final match of the group stage against the New York Subliners (1-3), Los Angeles Thieves secured an upper-bracket seed by the skin of their teeth. Regardless, Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag’s squad have been playing extremely well of late and seem poised for a deep run at the CDL Stage 3 Major.

The Florida Mutineers ended the group stage with a 3-2 record, which is quite impressive considering the quality of opponents they had to face. They have done a lot of their best work on the back of strong showings from Joseph “Owakening” Conley and Cesar “Skyz” Bueno, who not many teams have been able to stop.

However, LA boast similarly strong duo in Kenneth “Kenny” Williams and Zack “Drazah” Jordan. And let’s not forget about their newest addition, Cuyler “Huke” Garland, who is more than capable of matching any SMG player in the league.

We are leaning more towards LA Thieves for this one, but we don’t expect a one-sided affair.
