DraftKings CoD Core Plays and Cheat Sheet (CDL) – May 09, 2021
SEA Surge v.s. LON Royal Ravens (3:00 PM) (-115 SEA)
Both these teams meet again and it has been a while since Stage 1 where SEA got away with the series win 3-2. Unfortunately for LDN they no longer have the player who was the most efficient for them in that close series (Alexx). However, LDN may rely on the only player left from that roster in Seany to give his team some intel on SEA tendencies they may end up using on some maps to help his team counter it. On the other hand, Octane led his SEA team in slaying with a 1.39 K/D and may also do the same for his squad by revealing tendencies LDN had back then although it’s a completely different meta now. Decemate may not have had the best performance but was given a tough task of facing a powerhouse team in ATL for his debut and probably will improve with his new team with more time. Both records for these teams in respawn gametypes are slacking at the moment but LDN has the upper hand with 5-7 versus SEA’s 2-8 as they struggle to win to controls.
ATL FaZe v.s. Optic CHI (4:30 PM) (-218 ATL)
Arguably the most popular match of the day which happens to be a rematch between these two (3-2 ATL last matchup) that are surprisingly somewhat shaky this stage. ATL seem to be gradually finding their rhythm again though while CHI tries to break out of their slump. Respawns have not been as dominant for ATL compared to last stages but they have been improving in search and destroy which was their weakest gametype before. Arcitys has been stepping up his game more this stage and currently leads his ATL squad in kill-death differential (1.2) and also will make slaying easier for his teammates as he anchors on the main assault rifle role if he continues on this path. While CHI continues to find their stride again Dashy and Scump have been the most consistent so far in slaying with 1.15/1.14 K/D’s but they need to all regain their teamwork as they’ve admitted on social media. In addition, Simp played really well last time they met with a 1.49 K/D and if he plays anywhere near that level again this time around Envoy will need to find his comfortability again with CHI in order to help them counter ½ of the tiny terrors who tend to be a nuisance for several teams in the league.
DAL Empire v.s. MIN ROKKR (6:00 PM)
DAL has not looked the same since the benching and release of Huke and they’ll need to prove quickly why it was a good reason to do so as standings get tight with Major 3 around the corner. Unfortunately, they were swept 3-0 twice this stage since the benching of Huke and showed sparks of promise despite those losses but the consistency is a bit off. MIN on the other hand is coming off of a rebound win and are looking for revenge against DAL who they lost to last Major in the very last round. Standy has had 27.5% of his MIN squad’s kills in the three matchups against DAL and may have a slightly easier time slaying now that he will not have to deal with a submachine gun player with Huke’s caliber to be annoying on the map with his former duo Shotzzy. MIN has the slight edge in respawn gametypes with a 6-6 record versus DAL’s 4-7 record and MIN may have the best opportunity now to take advantage of DAL trying to find their balance. Crimsix is the only player on DAL with a K/D over 1 at the moment and will need a lot more help from his teammates in slaying as this new look DAL team tries to regain their championship form.
