Dallas Fuel vs Shanghai Dragons
This here is the very definition of a spectacle. Dallas Fuel vs. Shanghai Dragons is possibly the most exciting match-up in the Overwatch League today and will no doubt deliver in all the right ways! Heck, we're putting it mildly here! So if you're into watching the very best players duke it out in what can only be described as a "barnburner," you'd be wise to tune in to this one!
To make things even more interesting, we've already seen these two titans clash off mere weeks ago -- twice. They gave us some of the most mind-blowing Overwatch to date so it's downright impossible not to get excited for what's to come! Now, it's worth noting that the June Joust meta changed things quite a bit. For instance, Dallas don't seem quite as dangerous as they were just a couple of weeks ago. And, at this level of play, these nuances matter immensely. Then again, they know whom they're up against and what they need to do to win. The Dragons are staggeringly talented and dangerous, but they've yet to earn our benefit of the doubt given the fact that they had succumbed to the Fuel *twice* thus far. Does this mean they'll lose yet again? Not necessarily, but the odds obviously aren't on their side.
The only question now is: will the June Joust meta give them edge this time around? Shanghai have definitely looked nigh unstoppable throughout the qualifiers -- we'll let their 0-3 loss to Hangzhou slide for the time being. They 3-0'd Chengdu, the LA Valiant, and even beat Seoul Dynasty twice in a single week -- first in 3-1 fashion and then without dropping even a single map. It's obvious that they've hit their stride and are playing some of their best Overwatch to date which, in all fairness, doesn't mean they'll be able to handle a team that's surging as much as Dallas are. In any case, it's an incredibly interesting discussion, one that will remain without a definitive answer until we see these two giants collide for the third time in just a couple of hours.
We're going to side with Dallas on this one as, frankly, it's the only logical option. Still, we're not doing so with any humongous amount of confidence. These two teams are separated by the slimmest of margins and Shanghai could, by all means, get the "W" tonight. So, if you're looking for a "safe" bet, you'd be wise to look elsewhere!
