5.20.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

More DreamHack, more supid matchups. Astralis and G2 have easy matchups again but then we have the always fun MIBR V FURIA showdown, but even that has been one sided most of the time. Luckily DK took down this slate and remade it to fix pricing because it originally was a bigger trainwreck than it is in its current form. This should be a fun slate and we’re looking forward to some fun games. 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

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (1)

Assists 1.5Assists 1Match Won 10
Headshots .3Headshots .2Team Sweep 10
Sweep Bonus 22.5Sweep Bonus 15

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. 

G2(-256) V Heroic(+189) (8:00 AM EST)

G2:

G2 couldn’t win against North yesterday but they are facing an even easier opponent here and can be trusted to put them away. They may have moments where they look confused or exasperated but they should be able to overcome and win. Their top players are all fine options and there could be a value play here as well.

This is not a team to really ever target against superior opponents and today is no exception. The talent disparity is too wide and there are many better options elsewhere.

Astralis(-435) V North(+297) (11:30 AM EST) 

A:

Astralis had a few minor bumps in their first appearance with JUGi but they swept Heroic anyways. North is stiffer competition but still no watch for the mighty Danes. You can really play any of these guys in a nice spot like this but we have preferences based on talent and salary. There are likely no wrong answers here.

North had a great series against G2 and aizy’s great play as of late has been eye opening as we haven’t seen him sustain success like this in a while. He is a top player at the moment but not in such a negative matchup as this. Even if they are able to hold their own, there are better DFS options elsewhere.

MIBR(+154) V FURIA(-204) (3:10 PM EST) 

MiBR:

kNgV-5,4001.10.7470.40%1.14
TACO4,4000.930.5568.50%0.84

We have seen this matchup a lot recently, but this will be the first time with trk. He is very new and it remains to be seen how much they all gel. MIBR has been stomped by FURIA repeatedly and we think they’ll lose here in 3 games. We love kNgV for the upside he offers at a way too low price and it’s hard to have faith in the more expensive guys here.

FURIA should have no trouble handling the new look MIBR team and they have seen everything MIBR has to offer recently and have never looked fazed by any of it. These guys are some of our top plays and have tremendous upside even against a tough opponent.
