CDL Championship 2023 Heads To Las Vegas

The Call of Duty League (CDL) 2023 season is coming to a close, with just the CDL Championship 2023 separating us from the crowning of the new Call of Duty world champions.

The esports bookmakers are synonymous with pricing the defending champions, Atlanta FaZe, as the top dogs to win the coveted trophy, but is there any team that can spoil their plans?

Atlanta FaZe have made a name for themselves as the most consistent team of 2023 and are justifiably the favourites to win CDL Champs 2023. However, there are a couple more squads that are just as hungry to claim the trophy, some more than capable of spoiling FaZe’s plans.

CDL Championship 2023 Format & Schedule

Call of Duty League Championship 2023 will kick off on Thursday, June 15, at Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and conclude with the grand finals on Sunday, June 18, when the top two teams will battle it out for the lion’s share of the $2,380,000 prize pool.

  • Date: June 15-18
  • Venue: Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Where to Watch: YouTube, Twitch

CDL Championship 2023 will welcome eight Call of Duty teams who earned the most CDL points throughout the season. The field will consist of familiar names, with seven out of eight teams who competed at CDL Champs 2022 making a return to the big stage. The list includes Minnesota RØKKR, who are back after missing last year’s tournament.

CDL Championship 2023 will run for four days and have just one double-elimination bracket, with best-of-five (Bo5) used for the entire bracket, except for the grand finals, which will be best-of-nine (Bo9)

All Eyes On Atlanta FaZe

According to the latest CDL Championship 2023 outright betting odds, the regular season champions, Atlanta FaZe are the main favourites (3.00 at bet365) to win the tournament, and that’s hardly shocking.

Atlanta FaZe are the most consistent team of 2023 and 2021 CDL Champions, and they’re back to do it again. Trailing behind FaZe are 2021 CDL champions Toronto Ultra (4.50), who are tied with OpTic Texas (4.50) as the second favourites to win the event.

New York Subliners (5.50) join the list of underdogs, priced at slightly shorter odds than the defending CDL champions, Los Angeles Thieves, who enter CDL Championship 2023 priced at 6.00 and are the only remaining team priced at single digits.

Boston Breach (26.00), Seattle Surge (34.00), and Minnesota RØKKR (51.00) are total outsiders to win the tournament and even though all three squads have shown some promise this season, neither performed at the level of the top dogs.

Who Will Win CDL Championship 2023?

All bookmakers are very firm on pricing Atlanta FaZe as the main favourites to win CDL Champs 2023, and considering what they’ve achieved this season, that is a fair assessment. Not only have FaZe won the regular season, but they finished every Major inside the top three, which proves two things – consistency and quality.

However, there is a reason why FaZe haven’t won more than a single Major – they were eliminated from four Majors by three different teams, including New York Subliners, Los Angeles Thieves, and OpTic Texas, who all present a serious threat to Atlanta FaZe and their chances to claim the trophy.

With five strong teams, all of whom have accomplished a lot this season, travelling to Las Vegas, there are no guarantees who will win. And if previous CDL Championships were close, this one promises to be even more competitive.
