4.29.20 CSGO CLUTCH Slate

We have another Clutch slate on Draftkings here, our Brazilian teams playing best of twos in a tournament that only Draftkings cares about. Both games showcase a massive underdog and it truly is a strange slate to wrap one’s head around. There isn’t much to say except there’s no reason to play this unless you’re just bored so…yea. Good luck 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

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

Rounds Not Played Bonus +0.5 Pts per round not played
Match Sweep Bonus +5 Pts (minimum of 2 maps played)

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. 

Isurus(+104) V Bravos(+583) (7:00 PM EST)

Isurus is the big favorite here, if you don’t count this ending in a tie as a favorite. This team is actually kind of bad but Bravos is worse so that’s cool. They have a few decent performers to target on this tiny slate and since both match ups feature a large favorite there will be lots of chalk.

kaiG5,2000.960.6467.60%0.86

It’s hard to ignore 25% of the slate but these guys all suck. LealziNho has been their top performer a couple times recently and could be your value guy to stack the good times. Honestly though, anything can happen and we are surprised they even stream these games. 

Top plays: No first, lealziNho/unk, WOOD7

Talk about a massive underdog here at +893, good lord. We think these guys may have been worried the leagues charge players by the letter or something given their boring names but look at their stats to give you an idea of how they play. 

Top plays: No first, no second, vhz

latto6,4001.20.7576.20%1.17

These guys should stomp their opponent and will be the highest owned guys on the slate for sure. We don’t see any conceivable reality where it makes sense to fade them, it will just be important to pick the right guys. Fnx has been off recently and is the one guy here we are not super high on but a play here and there is necessary on a super strange slate like this one. DeStiNy and nak have been doing well and latto’s upside is too good to ignore despite his recent struggles. Hopefully his lower price will throw people off and he rebounds in a big way. Nython is kind of just in the middle but there is good potential for everyone here to put up big numbers. 

Top plays: DeStiNy/nak, latto/nython, fnx
