ESports Betting Tips: Call of Duty Pro League Finals

July 27th 2018, 11:15am, By: andyrosos

The Call of Duty World League provided us with some great value earlier in the season and now the time has come where the top eight teams from the league will face off in the finals. The finals will be played this weekend beginning at 6am Saturday (AEST).

You can view the full schedule for the weekend’s action here and check out our preview and tips for the first round of matches on Saturday below!

COD World League Finals Betting Tips

Red Reserve vs Rise Nation (Saturday 9am AEST)

Red Reserve finished on top of the Division A standings with a fantastic 11-3 record throughout the season. They were arguably the best team in all of the league throughout the round stages as a late deadline day move bringing in Skrapz from Team UNILAD paid dividends.

They start as favourites here against Rise Nation, who despite finishing fourth in Division B with a 9-5 record, have arguably been the best team throughout the whole Call of Duty WW2 season. They have picked up wins in three of the six CWL Championship events so far this season and boast arguably the best player in the game in Gunless on their roster.

Red Reserve are worthy favourites here after a stellar campaign through the round matches, however, it’s hard to look past Rise at this price. Rise had arguably the tougher division in qualifying and have proved themselves time and time again throughout the WW2 season. I think $2.25 is great value for them here.


Optic Gaming vs FaZe Clan (Saturday 10.30am AEST)

Optic Gaming finished on top of the tough Division B standings with 10 wins and 4 losses throughout the qualifying stage. They made some drastic changes in the transfer period to the team that won last year’s Call of Duty Championships by trading Formal and dropping Karma for Octane from Luminosity and Methodz from Team Kaliber. The moves have worked well so far, as Optic performed well in qualifying and performed admirably at the Anaheim Open, however their real test comes in the World League Season 2 finals and the big one, the Call of Duty Championships next month.

They face off against FaZe on Saturday morning, who after winning the World League Season 1, have looked a little stale over the past few events. A twelfth place finish in Seattle was followed by a sixth in Anaheim and the team underperformed in the qualifying of the World League, winning 8 of 14 games with new addition Prestiahh and Replays.

Optic will be out to prove a point here in arguably the biggest rivalry in all of Esports and I think they take this game comfortably .
