Dallas Empire comes into this game LA Guerrillas Home Series off a 2-3 defeat against Minnesota RØKKR, having previously beaten Paris Legion (3-1) and Seattle Surge (3-2). The latest CoD betting odds price picks Empire to be the winner, which seems honest even though they will go head-to-head with a team that is known for creating problems for the top dogs.
While supporting the underdogs might look like a better option given how many upsets there have been this CDL season, we don’t believe this is a spot where you would pick the Mutineers over Dallas. Florida might have defeated OpTic Chicago, but we wouldn’t show more concern to that result.
The Empire’s only defeat so far in this campaign came against the surging Minnesota, and even that was a slim 2-3 series, so they’re still one of the top-achieving teams in Group B.

CDL Betting Odds: Optic Chicago $1.31 / Seattle Surge 3.23

The almighty Green Wall did not look all that mighty last week when they couldn’t win a single map in their losses to Minnesota RØKKR and Florida Mutineers. In OpTic Chicago’s defense, the RØKKR looked really good and went on to beat Dallas Empire 3-2 a few days later, whereas the Mutineers are known to do well against the top teams.
Seattle Surge comes into this game off a crisp 3-0 win against Paris Legion on Sunday, marking their second victory of the stage after a 3-1 victory over Florida on day one. We said in our previous CDL betting predictions that Seattle should improve sooner rather than later, and it looks like that’s exactly what has happened. The whole Surge squad improved over the weekend, but particularly Peirce “Gunless” Hillman.
It’s difficult to predict how this match will go, and it all comes down to how much you value the recent results and forms of these sides. Are OPTic really as weak as their last two series suggest? And does the 3-0 win of the Legion mean Seattle are no longer one of the in-form teams in the league? Either way, the Surge have shown good reason enough for us to believe they can take the series.
