The first week of the Overwatch League launched successfully. On its first day, its viewers hit over 300,000 on Twitch. To put it in context, a CS:GO and DotA 2 major tournament a playoff match peaks at around 100,000. In hindsight, maybe Blizzard’s opening day free coins giveaway for their Overwatch players helped. But, 300,000 viewers in a regular season match is no joke.
Going into the results of Week 1 matches, it is the predicted futures leaders who dominated the league. Valiant, Spitfire, Dynasty, and Excelsior have not lost a match and have 2-0 win-loss records. The next teams in the middle that have 1-1 records include Uprising, Gladiators, Shock, and Fusion. Lastly, the current teams in the bottom of the standings are Outlaws, Fuel, Mayhem, and Dragons all have yet to win a game in the league.
Los Angeles Valiant is the current number one team in the league who finished Week 1 without any match or round losses. Valiant ended the week with its record unscathed. Although, Dallas was the closest to knock down Valiant after getting a draw on the second map of their match. Whereas its co-leaders, Spitfire, Dynasty, and Excelsior all lost on a map in their two matches in Week 1.
Both Overwatch teams have 1-1 in win-loss records. In which, they need to win this game if they want to go up to the standings. Fusion is the match favorite to win with -342 odds and the Shock as underdogs against +249 odds.
Mayhem is looking for its first season win against the Dynasty. But they would have to work for it as they are the match underdogs with +1214 odds against the Korean league favorites with -6667 odds.
Both of these teams have yet to win in the league and obviously, one team will exit the match with a victory. The Outlaws are underdogs against +376 odds and the Dragons with -571 odds as the match favorites to win.
