06.03.20 CSGO Blast Slate

When will the best of 1s stop! These are such stupid contests to enter but we all hate money anyways and will enter these contests regardless of what our better judgement tells us, right? There are more fragmented slates here so the least you can do for your wallet is try to play one of the larger options and not a single game or 2 game slate for best of 1s, online CSGO. 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
1v3 Clutch+2 Pts
1v4 Clutch+3 Pts
1v5 Clutch+5 Pts
Quad Kill+3 Pts
Ace+5 Pts
Rounds Not Played Bonus +0.5 Pts per round not played

Fanduel Scoring

MVP – 1.5X Points (1)Player (4)Team (1)
Kills 3Kills 2Rounds Won 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.

EZ 4 ENCE…I’ll stop using the meme when I get sick of it but the song’s too catchy. They do have the top matchup of the day in a sAw team that nobody knows exists. The early slate is a barren wasteland so this team somehow represents one of the better options.

This kind of seems like a toss-up but we are leaning in VP’s favor. Dignitas are a bit old and drawn out and VP has some nice talent that has shown they can compete. F0rest and hallzerk are the keys to victory for this team and they ride or die on their performances.

They blew it yesterday under poor play from Jame and we hope he bounces back here. This is a tough team to trust as they make silly mistakes but the talent is there. YEKINDAR is really expensive which is a turnoff but this should be a fun series.

These prices are lol worthy and it’s hard to have interest in the current form of this team. By the time they gel, Snappi will have moved on and it will be time to find a new answer. Easy fade, far too expensive.

ZywOo is a god and should enjoy taking down a disjointed team. I have less faith in his amigos against a few still talented players on the other side and a single game can present results all over the place.

Evil Geniuses(-128) V Cloud9(-103) (4:30 PM EST)

stanislaw5,4000.950.5867.70%0.84

Do these teams play each other every day? It certainly seems like it. EG is the consensus favorite in the industry despite losing 2-1 in their last 2 tries against C9. They only won Nuke in both series so it’s safe to say that won’t be the map this time and C9 should be more comfortable with the pick. Plays these guys with extreme risk only.

motm6,2001.050.6971.20%0.97
JT4,4000.910.5569.50%0.81

C9 gets their favorite opponent once again and if they properly dictate the map pool ,they should probably win this in like 16-12 fashion or so. This is not a great spot for DFS but there is potential, albeit limited upside. This looks like a team to target one of the cheaper guys we like and maybe not stack.

100 Thieves(-116) V Triumph(-114) (5:45 PM EST)

Liazz6,2001.040.6173.60%0.92

100T seems like they enjoy giving their viewers heart attacks and otherwise just underperforming. This may be in part because before their new coach came in, they apparently never reviewed film or did anything resembling proper team preparation. The culture change and individual talents should be able to start to shine soon but it’s always a hold your breath decision to roster this team. How many people will overreact to Liazz finally finding out he has a keyboard?

This dumpster fire beat C9 yesterday and could upset here again. It’s not likely but there are a few interesting options if you lean this way and their ownership in a rational world would be pretty low across the field.

MiBR(-122) V GenG(-109) (7:00 PM EST) 

MiBR:

TACO5,0000.930.5468.40%0.83
trk4,2001.080.6874.80%0.99

MiBR matches nicely against this team and particularly wields the AWP with far greater authority. FalleN fell yesterday and his price is high today, maybe worth avoiding if we see a mini slump. There are a lot of places to park salary and this team is an interesting one but high salaries require a significant commitment.

This is a tough matchup for this team and although potential exists, I’d rather look elsewhere. Their style of play is basically chill until it’s time to panic and throw the round and MiBR should take advantage.
