DraftKings CoD Core Plays and Cheat Sheet (CDL) – May 01, 2021
ATL FaZe v.s. LON Royal Ravens (3:00 PM) (-850 ATL)
ATL seem to finally be getting out of their slump after winning their last match but are still having some slight struggles with the search and destroy gametype being one of them. Simp is the only player on the squad right now maintaining his kill-death ratio above 1 (1.21) but over time that may end up changing for his teammates. As other teams in the league begin to improve now would be the perfect time to catch ATL at their low if this is even a low for them. LON is tied with ATL in the search and destroy gametype so far (2-2) and would need to win it in order to have more of a chance to win the series. Zed is currently performing the best in the gametype for his LON squad with a 1.20 K/D and will definitely need to keep that pace up to help his team even more. However, in the previous matchup LON was swept 3-0 so Paulehx and Seany will have to perform even better than they did in the last matchup to assist with other gametypes as well, especially since they were the most efficient for LON last time. On the other hand, Arcitys dominated last time with a 1.53 K/D and more than likely will be giving the assault rifle mains (Paulehx/Seany) some trouble. Although LON have made the acquisition of Zaptius in place of Dylan since then it will still be really tough to defeat this ATL team.
DAL Empire v.s. LA Guerrillas (4:30 PM) (-228 DAL)
Although LAG began to show some promise, but they came up short in their recent loss some due to mistakes that may seem simple to them to fix while dealing with match connectivity problems. However, DAL still seem to be trying to still piece things together with their squad and recent acquisition of FeLo for Huke that seems to not be improving the team so far so this match can go either way as of now. Assault has been playing surprisingly well this stage as he anchors for his LAG team (1.54 K/D) but will more than likely be going toe to toe with Crimsix of DAL who has not be slaying as much with a (1.11 K/D) but is the most efficient on his team now along with his teammate iLLeY who seems to still be adjusting to his new submachine gun role. If DAL ends up losing in this match they may have to question whether it was the right decision to bench Huke in my opinion, and try to find a trade that works in order to help DAL defend their championship title in the end.
NY Subliners v.s. SEA Surge (6:00 PM) (-238 NYS)
NYSL will be entering this match after their recent loss in which they could’ve definitely won but get a chance to bounce back against a team who they defeated in the first stage 3-1 in SEA. Clayster had 26.9% of the kills across all gametypes in that previous matchup and is currently contributing the most on his team still which will cause problems for SEA. SEA also still hasn’t dropped Loony yet after the way the team has been performing so far which surprises many but maybe they have something different up their sleeve. Hydra has also been adapting to his new NYSL team well and second in K/D (0.94) behind Clayster but would need to improve more in the search and destroy gametype to excel further. As for SEA, Octane was the only player on his team above a 1 K/D last time these teams met and will definitely need a lot more help this time around or they will most likely get swept. Gunless, Octane’s assault rifle duo who also plays the flex role has been playing better this stage so far which is a plus for SEA but if the submachine gun players on the team end up struggling especially Loony again more than likely it will end bad for SEA.
