The final day of the Call of Duty League Major 5 starts May 28 at 1:30 pm est. Four matches will decide who is going home and who will be crowned Major 5 Champions.

The two in Winners Bracket will kick things off. Atlanta FaZe and Minnesota RØkkr battle it out to wait in the Grand Finals, while the other battles their way through the Losers Bracket. Minnesota has been on fire since the recent roster change, but FaZe has been playing the most consistently throughout each game mode. 

Following them, the two teams in Losers Bracket will fight to stay alive in the Major. The New York Subliners get the home team, Toronto Ultra, in what should be an electric match in front of the crowd on the main stage. 

The winner of that match will face the loser of the previous match. Whoever wins gets a chance at the Grand Finals, and a winner will be crowned. Major 5 has been full of shocking events and a ton of upsets. We're in store for another wild day in Toronto.

Who should you place your bets on today? We don't bet, but this is who we'd be looking at if we did.

Attach Minnesota RØkkr Less Than 6.0 Map 2 Kills

While bringing Attach back to the roster has been a huge plus for Minnesota and has helped them dominate throughout Major 5, it hasn't been great for Attach on SnD. He is averaging just 0.53 kills per round, which ranks worst out of anyone left in the tournament. He went 4k/4d against the Florida Mutineers yesterday, and it won't get any easier against FaZe, who is one of the best SnD teams in the CDL

HyDra New York Subliners More Than 58.5 Maps 1-3 Kills

HyDra has been on a tear this Major, and he's the main reason New York has found so much success. He's hit this mark all but one time on the main stage in Major 5, and in a do-or-die match, expect him to continue to slay. He leads the CDL through this Stage, with 60.8 average kills through maps 1-3. While nothing is guaranteed—this one feels all but certain.

SlasheR Atlanta FaZe More Than 6.5 Map 2 Kills

SlasheR has been the bearer of all the criticism that FaZe has received. It's a bit unfair, considering the placement they've had in each Major this season. He's known for his prowess on SnD, which has been on full display in front of a hostile Toronto crowd. SlasheR is averaging 0.85 kills per round and leads the Major with a 1.96 SnD K/D. He's surpassed this total in both matches FaZe has played on the main stage, with nine against Toronto and ten against Vegas. He should have no problem against Minnesota, which has been hot and cold on SnD.
