DreamLeague Season 10 Day 3 will see four teams battle it out to see which of them will move on with a more comfortable spot in the Upper Brackets of the playoffs and play with their backs against the wall with a Lower Bracket spot.
Hands up if you thought that Day 2 of DreamLeague Season 10 would end in a completely different manner.
As if seeing Vega Squadron painfully lose to Infamous 2-0 wasn’t enough, we also saw Natus Vincere get swept by compLexity Gaming. Not only that, but Royal Never Give Up, considered as shoo-ins to win the tournament, also got swept by Tigers.
To cut things short, there was a lot of sweeping that happened. It’s just that it was the teams we least expected to win that did the sweeping.
Having said that, DreamLeague Season 10 Day 3 should be no different, as the four teams remaining are arguably pretty even, making it near-impossible to fully predict which one is going to emerge victorious. But we’re going to try anyway, and here are our picks for the day.

DreamLeague Season 10 Day 3 Predictions
Natus Vincere vs Infamous
Match Schedule: October 31, 2018 — 1330H CET
Infamous’ win against Vega Squadron were more of them committing fewer mistakes as opposed to them simply being the better team, as their series featured a lot of questionable plays from both teams.
Up against Natus Vincere, that may not be as effective.
Although the CIS squad are not exactly a bastion of perfection, they’re much better at punishing over extensions and sloppy executions than Vega Squadon, who were playing with a stand-in and have been struggling quite a bit these past few weeks even when playing with a full roster.
While we think Infamous are good enough to take at least a game off, Natus Vincere should have this series in the bag.
Betting: Correct Score 2:1 (IN MAPS) in favour of Natus Vincere at 3.21 odds. (GGbet)
Royal Never Give Up vs The Final Tribe
Match Schedule: October 31, 2018 — 1630H CET
Royal Never Give Up have already played against The Final Tribe early on in the tournament, and they took that series. However, it was much closer than most people would have expected. Thus, there’s a lot of upset potential here.
Unfortunately, with their loss against Tigers, we don’t think that Royal Never Give Up are going to be playing any worse than they already have. If anything, they could only get better. More time playing together should only help them acclimate to playing with a foreigner like Adam ‘343‘ Shah.
While we do firmly believe that Royal Never Give Up are still a roster swap or two away from being a solid Tier 1 team — a more experienced, veteran captain to help steady the ship and to provide top-tier shot calling should help — they’re at least good enough right now to not lose to The Final Tribe and make a deep run once the Playoffs of the tournament get underway.
