5.26.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

Another day of DreamHack brings more familiar teams and 100T V GenG who we haven’t seen in a while. Betting odds look downright awful today and we are starting to wonder who is putting them together. The biggest favorite could be the biggest loser and an underdog looks like the team to stack. It’s an interesting day to navigate and one we are excited to play. 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
StatisticFantasy Points*Players drafted as Captain earn 1.5x fantasy point values
Kills+1.5 Pts
Assists+1 Pt
Deaths-1 Pt
Entry Kill (First Kill of the round)+0.5 Pts
1v2 Clutch+1 Pt

Fanduel Scoring

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

Deaths -1.5Deaths -1Rounds Lost -.5
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. 

FaZe(-185) V Spirit(+141) (8:00 AM EST)

FaZe:

rain7,8001.070.6670.50%1.14
Bymas5,0001.110.7374.40%0.99

This seems way more one sided than the betting odds suggest and we have no idea how FaZe is only -185 here. There will be an adjustment prior for Bymas for sure, but a bot would have been an upgrade over olof at this point. This team should have no problem winning this series and again the big issue is whether or not you can afford them.

This team has been playing well recently, there’s no denying that, but this FaZe team is a much better squad then they have been playing (fnatic doesn’t count, they look dazed and confused). They could make this close and a player or two could do well but an upset is a tall order.

Fnatic is the biggest favorite of the day, despite looking absolutely awful recently. Farlig is a big addition to GODSENT and this screams close series or even another upset as fnatic continues their funk.

This is an opportunity for the new look  GODSENT team to get a statement win against a top team, kicking them while they’re down.

This series looks close but we are placing our bets on Gen.G despite the odds. The map pool is trending in their favor and they otherwise are closely matched. These guys are not too expensive and a close series or win could make a team stack look pretty good at the end of the day.

GenG is in a nice spot to get a win here but it won’t be easy. They are on a roll and it should continue ehre and we are again looking at solid pricing on dK but their high prices on FD are much more indicative of their value. This looks like the best team to target on the slate and they did sweep them last time.
