The first day of the Call of Duty League Major 4 starts April 20 at 1:30 pm. We have four matches that will decide who moves on in the Winners Bracket and who is getting sent to the Losers Bracket.

To get us started, the Minnesota RØkkr takes on the red-hot Los Angeles Thieves squad. Following them, the fan-favorite Vegas Legion gets the up-and-down New York Subliners. After that, the matchup many of us will be heavily tuned in to will be Boston Breach squaring off against one-seeded OpTic Texas. To cap us off, the revenge game will take place with Atlanta FaZe looking to get back at the Seattle Surge.

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

Atlanta FaZe aBeZy less than 25.5 Map 1 kills

aBeZy has been playing well through Stage Four. We all remember the immaculate performance against RØkkr when he went 38/12 for a 3.17 K/D on Hydro Hardpoint. But they're not playing the RØkkr in this one. Looking back at his recent Hardpoint rounds, he failed to get more than 25 kills. aBeZy should get close to 25 kills but likely won't get more than that.

OpTic Texas Dashy more than 21.5 Map 1 kills

OpTic is playing elite Call of Duty right now, and Dashy is a big part of that, posting a 1.11 K/D throughout Stage 4. But it's not the numbers that tell the story. His ability to hold down angles and gun down the enemy from anywhere on the map makes him a threat for a big game. In his last match against Boston Breach on Hardpoint, Dashy went 24/15 on the first map and 28/21 on the second. This one feels like a lock.

Los Angeles Thieves Drazah more than 6.5 Map 2 kills

Drazah has been on a tear throughout Major 4 on SnD. He has a 1.84 K/D and has reached more than six kills about 50% of the time. In the first Hardpoint against the London Royal Ravens, Drazah went 11/0 and in his last match went 8/2. 

Minnesota RØkkr Cammy more than 20.5 Map 3 kills

Minnesota has been struggling as of late, but Cammy has been playing much better than he was last Stage. His Control game has been solid, putting up numbers like 34/26 against the Florida Mutineers and 37/26 against Atlanta FaZe. In what could be a do-or-die game for Minnesota in the Winners Bracket, expect Cammy to pop off.

Atlanta FaZe Cellium more than 22.5 Map 3 kills

FaZe is going to be out for revenge in what should be a heated game against Seattle. After losing 3-0 in Asilo Control and dropping the match 3-0, where the entire team played well below their standards, FaZe will come out swinging on the Main Stage. Celium has the third-best Control K/D through Stage 4 with a 1.27 K/D and should have no problem topping 22 kills on the third map.
