This weekend (Week 4), the Overwatch League 2020 returns to Texas as the Houston Outlaws get to host their first homestand of the season. Seven matches will be played, the most of any homestand thus far, featuring nine teams. This marks the 2020 debut of the Atlanta Reign, the last team from the Atlantic Conference that has not played a game yet. It will also see if the likes of London, Boston, and Florida can continue whatever positive they’ve found and if Houston can salvage something from their misfortune-filled season so far. Here’s what we can expect from this weekend’s games.
OWL 2020 Week 4 Matches:
New York Excelsior vs. Florida Mayhem
Toronto Defiant vs. Atlanta Reign
London Spitfire vs. Houston Outlaws
Boston Uprising vs. Philadelphia Fusion
Paris Eternal vs. Atlanta Reign
London Spitfire vs. Florida Mayhem
Toronto Defiant vs. Houston Outlaws
What To Watch Out For
Atlanta Reign has been hyped as one of the best teams in the league thanks to their offseason additions and their strong 2019 performance. That hype may be warranted if they perform well against Paris and Toronto, two teams that have been decent surprises this early in the season. We consider the Atlanta Reign to be safe Overwatch Bets this week, so considering placing your bets with great odds using Loot.bet (use code MEBO100).
The London Spitfire now have the burden of expectations on them after pulling out a reverse sweep of Washington they were very close to losing, and they will face a similarly matched Florida team also proving to be better than people thought.
Houston, on the other hand, are just looking to put together a good performance after going through a marathon match of ineptitude against Boston.
Boston looks to continue what momentum they gained from that series against the Fusion, but just does not look possible. Among the rest of the teams, New York and Toronto look to get back on track after losing to Philadelphia and Paris wants to keep its positive momentum going.
Week 4 Predictions
- Florida Mayhem will beat London Spitfire but lose to New York
- London Spitfire to beat Houston Outlaws
- Philadelphia Fusion to defeat Boston Uprising
- Atlanta Reign to win both their matches
- Toronto Defiant to defeat the hometown Houston Outlaws.
