CDL London Odds: Huntsmen On Top

The Chicago Huntsmen enter CDL London as the +200 favorites to win the tournament and with good reason.
Chicago Huntsmen

The first tournament of the inaugural Call of Duty League will be hosted by the London Royal Ravens on February 8-9. Eight CDL teams have been split into two groups of four, with each group playing a double-elimination style of format to determine who moves on to the playoffs. Once the playoffs begin, each match will consist of a single-elimination best-of-five series.

The Chicago Huntsmen enter CDL London as the +200 favorites to win the tournament and with good reason. The Huntsmen went 2-0 in their two matches in Week 1 while posting a 6-1 game record, which has them in a tie for first in the league. It is worth noting that Chicago dominated a clearly outclassed OpTic Gaming Los Angeles in one game while beating a perhaps overhyped Dallas Empire in the first game in league history.

There is little doubt that the Huntsmen have one of the best rosters in the CDL and it would not be a shock to see the team win the first tournament in London.

What does come as a shock is that the second-best odds belong to the Paris Legion (+425), despite oddsmakers not giving the Legion much respect to win the entire CDL. Entering the CDL season, many people picked the Legion as the worst team in the league. The bulletin board material clearly motivated the Legion, as the squad went 2-0 with a 6-2 game record in Week 1.

Paris also has the luxury of being drawn into Group B, which appears to be the weaker of the two. It seems as though the Legion’s biggest competition in the group will come from the hometown London Royal Ravens (+550). The Royal Ravens went 1-1 on the first weekend but that included being swept by the Legion 3-0.
