Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week – December 11th, 2023

By Jeff Stinger

This weekend, our top eSports picks revolve around a single event, the Call of Duty League 2024 Stage 1 Major. The Call of Duty League has already become one of the most popular eSports leagues, maybe the most popular, in the United States. On Saturday, upstart Miami Heretics battle Minnesota ROKKR, Las Vegas Legion takes on NY Subliners, and Atlanta FaZe throws down against Seattle Surge a -250 moneyline favorite. Check out eSports odds, analysis, and picks for those three matches along with three COD contests happening on Sunday.

Top eSports Betting Picks of the Week – December 11th

Call of Duty League 2024 Stage 1 Major

Miami Heretics vs. Minnesota ROKKR

  • When: Saturday, December 16, 2023

New Call of Duty League franchise Miami has a single match to their credit. Miami beat Carolina Royal Ravens 3-0 on December 9. The win doesn’t prove much.

But it did prove to oddsmakers and eSports handicappers, at least so far, that the Heretics are a better COD squad than Minnesota ROKKR. The +103 underdog has lost 5 straight. Miami starts off going 2-0.

eSports Betting Pick: Miami Heretics -141

Las Vegas Legion vs. New York Subliners

  • When: Saturday, December 16, 2023

The Legion has won just 2 matches in their last 5. The victories came against Seattle and Minnesota, a couple of the less stellar squads at The Call of Duty League.

NY Subliners has won 4-of-5 and are on a 3-match winning streak. The Subliners beat Toronto 5-0 in their final match in June. This month, NYS has bested OpTic Texas and L.A. Guerillas. New York pushes their December record to 3-0.

eSports Betting Pick: New York Subliners -312

Atlanta FaZe vs. Seattle Surge

  • When: Saturday, December 16, 2023

Since a 1-3 loss to Toronto Ultra on June 16, Atlanta FaZe has rolled. The FaZe has beaten Boston twice, the L.A. Guerillas, and the Seattle Surge in 4 straight.

But as well as Atlanta has played, Seattle is on a 5-match winning streak. Lying the -250 on Atlanta is rough. Taking a stab on the dog makes sense.

eSports Betting Pick: Seattle Surge +179

Carolina Royal Ravens vs. OpTic Texas

  • When: Sunday, December 17, 2023

In their first Call of Duty League match, Carolina RR lost to fellow first time squad Miami 3-0. Not to be deterred, the Royal Ravens bounced back with an excellent 3-2 win over Las Vegas Legion.

On Sunday, the Ravens must step it up big time. OpTic is a better team than Vegas, but the Ravens have proven they can hang with a more experienced squad. Taking the +1.5, especially at a decent payout, is the play.

eSports Betting Pick: Carolina Royal Ravens +1.5 +136

Los Angeles Guerillas vs. Los Angeles Thieves

  • When: Sunday, December 17, 2023

The Guerillas were a disaster last season and, yes, they are a disaster this season. LAG has lost 5 straight. Still, they offer a nice premium versus their intercity rivals.

The Thieves have also dropped 5 straight. Because neither squad has much of an edge over the other, backing the L.A. Guerillas to beat the L.A. Thieves is the optimal play.

eSports Betting Pick: Los Angeles Guerillas +229

Boston Breach vs. Toronto Ultra

  • When: Sunday, December 17, 2023

Boston is on a 0-3 losing streak. 2 of the Breach’s losses came against Atlanta FaZe, one of the best teams at the COD League.

However, Toronto Ultra has won 3-of-5 straight. The favorite in this won all 3 matches by 2 or more games. Ultra covers.

eSports Betting Pick: Toronto Ultra -1.5 -172
