OpTic Texas vs Toronto Ultra Predictions


OpTic Texas and Toronto Ultra will cross swords on Saturday, March 23, in the second round of the Call of Duty League (CDL) 2024 Major 2 Winners Bracket. It'll mark a rematch from the penultimate round of the qualifiers when OpTic won, but according to the esports betting odds, Toronto Ultra should get their revenge.

Call of Duty betting sites have Toronto Ultra priced as 1.53 favourites for the upcoming series and OpTic Texas as 2.37 underdogs. Even though OpTic won the most recent meeting, Ultra are expected to do well on Saturday, which given their LAN record, doesn't sound too crazy.

  • Toronto Ultra won the first CDL Major of the season
  • Ultra have lost just two of their last 15 series
  • OpTic Texas are on an eight-game winning streak

Head to Head


Toronto Ultra and OpTic Texas last met in the final week of CDL 2024 Major 2 Qualifiers, when OpTic won 3-2.

OpTic Texas Form


OpTic Texas went undefeated in the CDL 2024 Major 2 Qualifiers, although they had to grind out a few games against Minnesota RØKKR, Boston Breach, Toronto Ultra, and the New York Subliners. You have to respect OpTic's ability to win on map five more than it's fair to feel concerned about the fact that their opponents forced OpTic to the limit.

OpTic Texas' biggest strength seems to be Control, where they've been phenomenal. Search & Destroy is solid as well. We've not seen OpTic play on a few maps, which could prove to be their weakness.

Map pool is a big question about this team and while they manage to manipulate their way out of playing certain maps online, things won't be as easy on LAN.

Toronto Ultra Form


Toronto Ultra won the first CDL Major of the season, but haven't had the most explosive performance in the CDL 2024 Major 2 Qualifiers. They ended the online stage 5-2 with defeats against OpTic Texas and Atlanta FaZe, but they also picked up convincing wins against lesser opponents.

This is the best Hardpoint team in the league, which can take them far. However, Toronto Ultra have only looked OK on Control and their Search & Destroy needs some work. Obviously, things could look much different on LAN than how they did online, but Toronto Ultra might be the weakest of the four elite teams besides FaZe, the Subliners, and OpTic Texas.

Verdict

OpTic Texas have looked great online and they've yet to struggle on LAN, granted they only had to play Boston Breach so far. Still, while there are many things left unanswered about this team, mainly what their map pool looks like, OpTic Texas are very strong on respawns, which can definitely nullify some of their weak points.

Toronto Ultra are no slouches. They are excellent on Hardpoint, but on Control and Search & Destroy, they're mediocre at best. Their map pool is ok, so at least Ultra have that going for them, even though we can't say for sure whether OpTic Texas' map pool is bad.

This match should be priced much closer to 50/50 than how it is. While Ultra are not to be underestimated on LAN, OpTic Texas have looked much better in stage 2.
