4.24.20 CSGO ESL Slate

We have a 2 game, DK only early slate followed by a slew of other games that are on both sites. We have a few more major favorites and some close games again. The early slate is very one sided as long as mouz doesn’t blow it, so that’ll be a gross, chalky slate. The all day games have a bunch of fun options and top tier guys and it will be a good one to play. Good luck, have fun, and game on. 

Draftkings’ scoring follows the chart shown below, with a focus on K/D and clutch plays. Rosters are set with a Captain position who receives 1.5x his points at 1.5x his salary, but beyond that it is positionless. This is important to understand because CS teams follow a composition of different roles such as IGL (In game leader), entry fragger, support, etc. With Draftkings making no distinction between players, it is left to you to decide which roles are most important within this scoring system and to take advantage of that. For several teams for example, their IGL is not often going to score highly as they may be less skilled at the game but are valuable in ways that Draftkings doesn’t record. With that in mind, we will jump into a quick look at the roles of key players, their key stats, and how their perceived performance should fare in accordance with their salary. 

Players

Kills+1.5 Pts
Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt
Entry Kill (First Kill of the round)+0.5 Pts
1v2 Clutch+1 Pt

Assists 1.5Assists 1Rounds Won 1
Headshots .3Headshots .2Rounds Lost -.5
Sweep Bonus 22.5Sweep Bonus 15Match Won 10
Team Sweep 10

Fanduel has 6 slots for a captain, 4 standard players, and a team. The captain position does not affect a player’s salary like it does on Draftkings. This is particularly advantageous for when you have an inkling that a superstar will put up a large performance but you don’t want to limit your options elsewhere. The team slot will be a lot of fun for those situations where you like a team to win but don’t like the fantasy prospects of any particular players so you can still get some exposure. We figure most users will try to pick the cheapest winning team because a lot of the stats you get points for are hard to predict, but a winning team should definitely fare better.

Our top plays are designed to show the most playable options on each team, factoring in performance and price. The top 2 plays on each team will be in our player pool and the third tier top plays are people we will sprinkle in a bit along with the core group. All of the statistics shown are for the last 3 months to see who has been performing well recently while still keeping a significant sample size. 

c0ntact(-145) V Copenhagen Flames(+111) (9:00 AM EST)

emi5,4000.830.5164.10%0.79

This game is the even series for the early slate, with the other game being massively lopsided. The focus will be on mouz so the value and lower ownerships will be in this series so we have to play it right. C0ntact are the favorites here and they did sweep Copenhagen 2-0 in their last series. Since then, LETN1 replaced rallen and he’s a guy that hasn’t played a whole lot recently. We’ll see if this trips them up and could be a cause for concern. This leaves EspiranTo, SHiPZ, and ottoND as our top guys to target as we don’t trust LETN1 yet and emi is a trashcan. OttoND’s price is a bit oppressive so he’s our third target behind the other two. EspiranTo is a similar player at a discount so lock that in. 

Top Plays: EspiranTo, SHiPZ/ottoND

Queenix5,2000.980.6169.00%0.91

Despite being slight underdogs, a small slate and a close series could still produce viable options. We are not that high on anybody but will certainly be avoiding HooXi. Queenix is an interesting option at a very low price and he wasn’t on this team in their last matchup with c0ntact. Nodios and refrezh would be prioritized over Farlig due to the pricing, as we need our big monies for mouz. We still think they will lose and will be cautious as such. 

Top plays: No first, Nodios/refrezh/Farlig, Quuenix

They are -1250 on a 2 game slate, you know what to do. Ropz, frozen, and woxic are a nice three stack and we will likely avoid karrigan and chrisj despite this nice spot. Nearly everyone should be playing these guys, fade them at your own risk.

Ninjas In Pyjamas8,500

NiP are large favorites but we feel that this will be a lot closer than it seems. We will probably avoid Plopski’ ridiculous price entirely as we don’t think he will be worth it, even with a good showing. Nawwk, Lekr0, and REZ are much more playable at their respective prices and if you believe in the plus matchup, they can be good targets for you. We will be underweight on the entire team and wouldn’t be surprised by an upset. 

Top plays: No first, nawwk/Lekr0, REZ

Team Dignitas7,900

Dignitas is in an interesting position. They are a fairly new roster and could use some success here. If they pull off the upset, it would come on the back of strong showings from hallzerk and f0rest. This slate has too many better options to put too much stock into these guys, but they could be fun picks at low ownership. 

Top plays: No first, hallzerk/f0rest

Isurus 8,000

Isurus are big underdogs here but it’s not exactly a definite blowout spot. They have some interesting map advantages and should be able to at least take BOOM to three games here. That being said, no reason to play these guys who kind of suck. 

Top plays: Nope

Boom Esports8,400

BOOM has been rolling as of late and their wins have been mostly team efforts. Felps is a great play on Fanduel but his price on DK is off putting. We can see a nice 2 or 3 stack of chelo, yel, and boltz paying off as an under-owned team stack if they sweep Isurus again. 

Top plays: chelo/yel, boltz, felps

This looks like Imperial should be underdogs by a wider margin here. Almost everything we are looking at is in RED’s favor and we feel confident in them here. No reason to look at these guys.

DeStiNy and latto continue to roll. We like both of them here again and we’ll take the cheaper option of the two on each site, with latto looking particularly attractive on DK. This is not enough of a plus matchup to stretch beyond these two. 

Top plays: latto(DK)/DeStiNy(FD), latto(FD)/DeStiNy(DK)

100 Thieves(+120) V Evil Geniuses(-156) (4:00 PM EST)

100 Thieves8,200

100 Thieves have been on a disappointing run recently and things are not going to be any easier against EG. Jkaem is very cheap for his potential on DK and could be a salary relief flyer pick and they have beaten EG 2-1 in their last 2 showings. AZR did great in both and is stupid cheap on Fanduel. We are not sure about them winning this one again, but they are a very cheap team if you want to take a chance on them.

Top plays:  No first, AZR/jkaem(DK), jks

Evil Geniuses8,400

Evil Geniuses are set up for victory here, but their earlier struggles against this team are a cause for trepidation. We are still happy to target CeRq who is one of their regular top performers, underpriced, and the one guy for EG that still performed in those two series. We’ll try him as a one off a bit and be careful elsewhere. 

Top plays: CeRq, Brehze

Triumph 7,900

Triumph is in a terrible position here and don’t let their upset over Cloud9 fool you, this isn’t a great team. Grim is their top player and is very cheap on DK but they will probably be bullied in this matchup and you should use caution with him as a one off.

Gen.G 8,400

GenG have a chance to dominate here and they have a few players that are looking to keep on rolling. We like the 3 man stack of their top guys, with koosta being a pricing mishap on Fanduel especially. He is our favorite pick on the team and we’ll make a lot of combos with him and autimatic, with BnTeT being a solid third pick. 

Top plays: koosta/autimatic, BnTeT

This needs to be Cloud9’’s redemption after an embarrassing showing against Triumph. Current betting odds are showing that bettors believe and it’s frickin Orgless who they’ve beaten 2-1 in their last 2 matchups. OSee is one of our favorite guys on the squad and he’s been showing up recently for them in a big way. He’ll set the pace for them to take over the series and he’ll be helped out by floppy and motm. 

Top plays: oSee, floppy/motm

Apparently these guys are still trying CS before jumping ship to Valorant, go figure. WARDELL is a solid AWPer and a good bet to go positive regardless of how the series goes. He’s approachable on DK but maybe a pass on Fanduel. If you believe in an upset here, pair him with Infinite or yay.
