Miami Heretics vs Los Angeles Thieves Predictions

Call of Duty bookmakers have Los Angeles Thieves priced as 1.50 favourites to defeat Miami Heretics, who are priced as 2.50 underdogs. The Thieves have looked better recently, which explains the offered odds, but we must also consider that Miami Heretics will have to play back-to-back games due to weird scheduling.

  • Los Angeles Thieves are 2-3 across their last five
  • Miami Heretics share the same 2-3 record
  • Heretics will have less than 20 hours between their previous match and this 

Miami Heretics Form


Miami Heretics are not doing well this season. They're 8-11, which is good enough to sit in the middle of the CDL 2024 table; however, most of their wins came in the first stage of the season.

Following a solid start to the year, the Miami Heretics slowly started to fall apart and were particularly disappointing in CDL 2024 Major 2 Qualifiers and on LAN. They ended the qualifiers in eighth place and exited the Major in ninth-12th with two losses against OpTic Texas and Carolina Royal Ravens.

They've since bounced back, with a 3-2 victory against Boston Breach; however, that marked only their third win since the start of CDL Major 1, translating to a 3-9 record.

An even bigger concern than their poor form ahead of this match is the fact that Miami Heretics will have to play Toronto Ultra in the final round of the first day and LA Thieves in the first match of the second day - giving them just under 20 hours to prepare for the upcoming fixture.

Los Angeles Thieves Form


Los Angeles Thieves won their first match of CDL 2024 Major 3 Qualifiers against Las Vegas Legion, which is promising. Still, the series was incredibly close, and it could've easily ended the other way. The Thieves came out ahead with a 250-49 victory on Hardpoint and two S&D wins with 6-2 and 6-3.

However, they were not as successful on Control (2-3) and the second Hardpoint map (247-250). As the score would suggest, LA Thieves could've won 3-0 had they stepped up in the clutch moments.

It wasn't the best performance from Los Angeles Thieves; however, they've posted a few solid games recently, showing improvement from the slow start to the year. At this point, the Thieves are somewhere in the middle as they can keep improving and solidify themselves as one of the top-mid-table teams or drop back down.

Los Angeles Thieves Squad & Team News


Los Angeles Thieves added Joseph "JoeDeceives" Romero to the starting lineup at the end of March.

  • Daniel "Ghosty" Rothe
  • Kyle "Kremp" Haworth
  • Byron "Nastie" Plumridge

Verdict

Los Angeles Thieves have improved recently, whereas Miami Heretics haven't really shown much of late. They're also set to play a game 20 hours before this one, which will give them very little time to rest and prepare, adding another reason why Miami Heretics shouldn't be trusted to cause an upset.

Even though the Heretics are good enough to fight any other mid-table team, this seems more like a Los Angeles Thieves victory than anything else.
