5.28.20 CSGO DreamHack Slate

All the odds are close and all the matchups kind of suck today. Yesterday saw an awesome slate for everyone and today they flipped the script. S1mple and ZywOo both go again today and could be a dynamic duo if we can find the salary. These matchups seem intriguing for DFS and should make for some interesting roster decisions. Good luck to everyone 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.

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. 

Vitality(-116) V NiP(-111) (8:00 AM EST)

VIT:

Vitality looked great against NaVi until they didn’t and ultimately lost the series. The odds here are close and the map pool looks really even as well. This feels like a 2-1 series for Vitality (like last time) but NiP has the deeper roster so be careful. Looking past ZywOo may be an issue here.

NiP lost 2-1 to Vitality on the Road to Rio and that was when they still had lekr0. It remains to be seen how much of an impact that will make but today is not the day to find out the hard way! This is a tough opponent and will mostly be a fade for us here.

NaVi handled ZywOo and co. yesterday and now gets a much better matchup in ENCE.  They seem like they should be larger favorites here so look for them to do well against the garbage meme boys.

LOL at allu’s price which is a major overreaction to a single great series he had against Copenhagen. This is the first time we are seeing Jamppi as well, in for xseveN. Fanduel of course has no idea what’s ever going on and has not updated their roster. This new look team is tough to predict but a few guys should do well, win or lose, due to the bottom feeders on the other team.

100T(-137) V Cloud9(+105) (3:10 PM EST)

100 Thieves is the favorite here after having swept Cloud9 in their last try. We see a turnaround from C9 here and an upset coming up. There is still a lot of upside with the top guys here but temper your expectations.

C9 made a questionable map call last time against 100T and we hope to see a Dust selection where they can handle them. They have looked solid and should be able to perform well here even if it’s a close loss.
