Overwatch League Week 10 Matches

Philadelphia Fusion vs Paris Legion – Saturday, April 11 – 13:00 PST

Philadelphia Fusion and Paris Legion will renew hostilities this Saturday in what promises to be an exciting fixture between two of the best performing teams of the season. All the spotlight will be on Fusion who will seek revenge against Legion who handed them their only loss of the season at the start of March (2-3).

Comparing the two sides, Fusion are arguably a better team on the paper, but as we have come to realise, that does not necessarily guarantee them a win. Eternal might hold onto a slightly worse record (5-2) compared to Fusion (6-1), but they are by no means a team we should underestimate, especially with Terrence “SoOn” Tarlier on the team, who caused quite a headache to Fusion in their first meeting.

This match can easily go both ways, as neither side showed enough for us to believe they are the undisputed favourites, meaning that placing our money with Eternal is the best bet to take. An over 4.5 map bet is also something to consider, as this can easily turn into a five-map series.

Prediction: Paris Eternal to win – +133 at MyBookie

Washington Justice vs Dallas Fuel – Saturday, April 11 – 17:00 PST

Washington Justice are entering Week 10 matches following a disappointing performance in Week 9, where they got stomped by Toronto Defiant (1-3) and Philadelphia Fusion (0-3), so there should be some added motivation to bounce back this weekend. That, however, will be easier said than done.

Dallas Fuel failed to show anything noteworthy this season and they looked very bad against LA Gladiators on Saturday, however, managed to bounce back with a 3-2 win over Los Angeles Valiant last Sunday. One player who stood out in that fixture was Jang “Decay” Gui-un, who put on one of the best Tracer performances we have seen from him in a long time. To say he played a pivotal role in his team’s success would be an understatement, as he single handedly carried Fuel to their first win of the season. What’s more, Youngjin “Gamsu” Noh had his flashes of greatness, which is a promising sign for Fuel going forward.

It remains to be seen whether Dallas Fuel will be able to keep up the tempo and improve, but they’re definitely a team that is capable of much more than they have led us to believe thus far.

Prediction: Dallas Fuel to win –

Houston Outlaws vs Toronto Defiant – Sunday, April 12 – 13:00 PST

The last meeting between these two sides saw Houston pick up a shock win and there is a feeling in the air that Toronto will look to even the score this weekend and pick up their fourth win of the season. That, however, won’t be a cakewalk, not necessarily because Houston are such a strong team, but rather because Toronto look to be very shaky this season. What’s more, this week’s bans won’t exactly play into the strong suits of Defiant, especially with both D.Va and Ana out of the rotation.

In the end, it will all come down to how well Defiant can adjust to the shift brought by the hero rotation. Unfortunately, this team has one big flaw – a lack of any serious roster depth, which will be a problem here. Their flex support Young-seo “KariV” Park is perhaps the only player on the roster who is capable of playing several heroes at a high level, as for the remainder of the team, we are not too optimistic. On any other day, we would give Toronto an edge here, but the hero rotation will be too high of a hurdle for them to overcome.

Prediction: Houston Outlaws to win
