Overwatch League Apr 16 Matches
Thursday, April 16 at 6:00 PM
Atlanta Reign vs. Washington Justice
Atlanta is in sixth place in the league standings, having gone 3-2 in five matches while posting a 12-6 record in maps (+6). The Reign have won three of their last five matches, but they come into this affair looking to shake off a 2-1 loss they suffered against Philadelphia on April 12.
Washington is in 19th place in the standings at 2-7 in nine matches while posting an uninspiring 12-22 record in maps along the way (-10). The Justice have been limited to two wins over their last five matches while alternating wins and losses over the stretch. The Justice will be looking to bounce back from a humbling 3-0 shutout loss against Dallas on April 11.
When it comes to the head-to-head meetings between these two rivals, Atlanta recorded a 3-1 win in April of 2019 before backing that up with a 2-1 win on August 16. More importantly, Washington has been completely awful this season while Atlanta is right in the mix to reach the playoffs where they hope to challenge to win it all. Back the Reign to get it done Overwatch esports fanatics!
Overwatch Pick: Atlanta 3-1
Los Angeles Gladiators vs. Los Angeles Valiant
The Gladiators are sitting in 12th place in the standings at 2-3 in five matches while going 8-10-2 in maps (-2). The Gladiators have alternated wins and losses over their lat five matches and come into this affair off a 3-0 shutout loss against San Francisco on April 12. The Valiant are sitting in 17th place in the standings at 2-4 in six matches while going 9-14 in maps (-5). L.A. has lost four of its last five matches including a narrow 3-2 loss to Dallas on April 5.
When it comes to the head-to-head meetings, the Valiant hold a slim 3-2 edge, but the Gladiators have won each of the last two meetings, most recently a 3-1 win on August 24 of 2019. This time around, the Gladiators are the pick to win this ‘Battle of Los Angeles’ meetings once again. The Variant’s 9-14 mark in maps in quite disturbing and their lack of cohesiveness will be their undoing in this affair.
Overwatch Pick: LA Gladiators 3-2
