Esports: Call of Duty League Major Three qualifiers

After a short break in the season, the Call of Duty League returned last weekend with the qualifiers for Major Three.

The first two Majors of the season are done and dusted and attention now turns to the build-up to the next, which takes place in Arlington next month and is hosted by OpTic Texas.

All 12 teams in the Call of Duty League will qualify for Major Three but only the top eight sides will start in the winners' bracket with the bottom four sides starting in the losers' bracket.

Additionally, there are more Call of Duty League points up for grabs during this qualifying campaign.

The first Major of the new Call of Duty League season went the way of the New York Subliners in Raleigh before the second was won by powerhouses Atlanta FaZe in Boston at the start of the month.

This looks to be a competitive event once again but Atlanta FaZe are certainly worth keeping an eye on as are the Subliners, Toronto Ultra and LA Thieves.

Atlanta FaZe can assert authority over London Royal Ravens

OddsAtlanta FaZe 1/7, London Royal Ravens 4/1

Although they fell at the final hurdle against LA Thieves in 2022, no team collected more Call of Duty League points than Atlanta FaZe (330) last season and they have made a similarly dominant start to the new campaign.

FaZe made it to the winners' final in Major One, losing out 3-2 to Seattle Surge in a match which could have easily swung the other way on another day.

But in Major Two, they left nothing to luck, forcing their way into the Grand Final where they sank LA Thieves 4-2 to pick up their first title of the season.

Despite their success in 2022, they did not actually win a Major event so victory in Major Two this year will give them a massive confidence boost and they are top of the points standings already this term.

They have started qualifying for Major Three with one win and one defeat but that loss came against the LA Thieves so was by no means disgraceful and they should be a cut above the London Royal Ravens, who were bottom in qualifying for Major Two with a 1-4 record and lost their opening match in this qualifying campaign.

An Atlanta FaZe win by a 3-0 margin looks worth chancing at 11/8.

Ultra and OpTic could push each other close

OddsToronto Ultra 10/11, OpTic Texas 4/5

There are a couple of one-sided matches taking place in the Call of Duty League qualifiers on Friday but Toronto Ultra's clash with OpTic Texas is a more open affair.

OpTic Texas are preparing for their home Major, whereas Toronto Ultra have been among the best performers in qualifying for Call of Duty League events this year.

Although they have failed to make an impression in the events themselves, Ultra finished with 3-1 and 4-1 records respectively in qualifying for Majors One and Two and should not be written off in this match.

It is a tough one to call at this early stage so punters are advised to back over 4.5 maps at 13/8.

Boston Breach should have enough in their locker

OddsLA Guerrillas 13/8, Boston Breach 4/9

In the final match taking place in Call of Duty League qualifying on Friday, Boston Breach are expected to overcome LA Guerrillas.

That looks about right given the LA Guerrillas have been uninspiring in this season's Call of Duty League, putting up on 50 points after the first two Majors.

As for Boston Breach, they have a 5-4 win-loss record from the nine qualifying matches they played ahead of Majors One and Two and they have already won both of their Major Three qualifiers against Toronto and London.

They are yet to make an impact on the biggest stages in this year's Call of Duty League but they have enough in their locker to win this one and a 3-0 win could be the way to go at 11/4.
