OpTic Texas vs Florida Mutineers | CDL Major 3 Winners Bracket Predictions
OpTic Texas qualified for CDL Major 3 as the second-seeded team, with a 4-1 record from the group stage and an 80% map win rate (13-4). But even though OpTic weren’t able to finish atop of the table, you could argue that this is the current best team in the league.
OpTic’s only defeat of the CDL Major 3 qualifiers came against New York Subliners, who beat them 3-1, which might seem concerning. But the Subliners are on the rise and an extremely good team, so we wouldn’t overreact to that loss.
In the remaining four series, OpTic picked up comfortable wins, beating the likes of Atlanta FaZe (3-1), Florida Mutineers (3-0), Los Angeles Guerrillas (3-0), and Los Angeles Thieves (3-0).
Florida Mutineers dragged their way into the CDL Major 3 Winners Bracket by defeating the Thieves in a tiebreaker game to end the qualifiers with a 2-3 record. Besides beating the Thieves, Mutineers also won against Boston Breach (3-2) and LA Guerrillas (3-1), but they weren’t nearly as impressive against Minnesota ROKKR (1-3), Seattle Surge (1-3), and OpTic (0-3).
The Mutineers can do well against other mid-table teams, but they don’t have the tools to deal with the top squads of the CDL, which will be a problem in this match. Moreover, OpTic already won against the Mutineers convincingly not too long ago, and there is little to suggest they can’t do it again.
There’s a world where OpTic drops one map, but we wouldn’t expect Florida Mutineers to achieve more than that. That said, it wouldn’t be too shocking to see OpTic Texas sweep the Mutineers again and keep their win streak going en route to another Major title.
Prediction: OpTic Texas -2.5 maps
Seattle Surge vs New York Subliners | CDL Major 3 Winners Bracket Predictions
Seattle Surge and New York Subliners are two teams who you could consider to be good but not quite one of the best teams in the league. But if we had to pick a team with a higher ceiling, we would have to pick the Subliners
The New York squad won the CDL Pro-Am earlier this month and have since looked good. Admittedly, they have dropped two games in the qualifiers against Atlanta FaZe (1-3) and Toronto Ultra (2-3), but they have also beaten Breach (3-1), OpTic (3-1), and Paris Legion convincingly.
Results like that show that New York Subliners can compete with the best teams while still a bit inconsistent.
Seattle Surge have achieved much more in the qualifiers and enter the Major with a 4-1 record. They’ve beaten the likes of Mutineers (3-1), London Royal Ravens (3-0), Los Angeles Thieves (3-0), and Paris Legion (3-1) but lost against Toronto Ultra (2-3).
Even though their record looks better, Seattle Surge had to face much weaker opponents in the qualifiers, so we would take their 4-1 run with a grain of salt. The only good team they had to face was Ultra, and still Surge lost.
This could be a very close series, but at the end of the day, this is Subliners’ match to lose. They’ve shown much higher highs, and as long as they can keep their wheels spinning, New York Subliners should come out ahead.
Prediction: New York Subliners to win
