CDL Esports Betting
After a strong performance in the CDL Boston Major qualifiers, OpTic Texas is the favorite heading into the tournament. After only conceding one loss, they hope to keep their momentum going to the final. However, on the opposite side of the table, Seattle Surge disappointed everyone after a strong showing in the first Major.
Esports bettors will want to stay far away from the Surge. They would have better luck betting on Florida Mutineers than them. Here are the esports betting odds for each team in the CDL Boston Major, and look out for our top three teams to watch!
|New York Subliners||+550|
|Las Vegas Legion||+5000|
|London Royal Ravens||+25000|
|New York Subliners vs. Minnesota RØKKR||-233/+169|
|Boston Breach vs. Atlanta FaZe||+159/+222|
|Toronto Ultra vs. LA Guerrillas||-263/+187|
|OpTic Texas vs. L.A. Thieves||-147/+101|
CDL Teams to Watch
The major teams to watch are Atlanta FaZe and OpTic Texas. However, there are three others that every esports bettor should keep their eyes on going into the weekend. Those three teams are Minnesota RØKKR, Boston Breach, and L.A. Guerrillas.
LA Guerrillas (+2500)
During qualifying, L.A. Guerrillas looked like a dominant team but could not finish in the final round. Their two losses came at the hands of Florida Mutineers and Atlanta FaZe.
In both matches, they were the better team in nearly every game. At +2500, you can’t find a better team with that low of odds.
Minnesota RØKKR (+900)
Minnesota RØKKR is one of the most intriguing teams in the CDL. They have the ability to put in a fantastic run of matches and then all of a sudden fall off. During qualifying, they ended up in the top half of the table and hoped to continue their good form.
Therefore, betting on Minnesota at +900 seems like a no-brainer. However, esports bettors need to be cautious as the tournament goes on.
Boston Breach (+750)
The hosts of the CDL Boston Major, the Boston Breach, have surprised CDL and esports fans alike. They put up a fantastic performance against OpTic and dominated all but one match during qualifying.
After starting strong, they looked rough against L.A. Thieves, but that was a one-off loss. Despite that, they could be a strong contender for the Major and the entire CDL.
