06.05.20 CSGO DreamHack/Blast Slate

We finally have a big slate full of normal series on DK and a smaller slate on FD. The best of 1s are over and now we can look at playoffs. It’s fun to combine these tournaments with mainstream teams and the more unknowns so that we can get a larger player pool and some tourneys worth playing. We are actually enthusiastic about a slate for the first time in a week so let’s get into it! 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.

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. 

ORDER (-106) V Chiefs (-122) (4:00 AM EST)

Fanduel only included the two DreamHack games on their slate whereas there are 2 more Blast series for DK. Betting odds are really stupid as of writing this, as ORDER is in a great spot for an emphatic win. They have beaten them 4 maps to 1 recently and look for that to continue here.

It’s hard to tell if Vexite or yam is their 5 starter, but they both suck and are irrelevant so who really cares. Hummfibfebfineiniogus is pretty solid and you can safely look past the rest of the team.

Mousesports (-106) V Astralis (-122) (6:30 AM EST)

This matchup would have been so exciting a month ago, but we are left with table scraps at this point. This is as good a chance as mouz has had to beat Astralis and their low prices make them very attractive plays.

We are not quite sure why Astralis is the betting favorite here but we don’t really want a part of them. They are really expensive and should not be able to hang around for too long against mouz with their current roster in flux.

Beyond (+219) V Lucid Dream (-303) (7:50 PM EST)

This is the worst team to target all day. They are the biggest underdog and have recently lost to this same team pretty decisively. They are contrarian yolos only.

Lucid has gone 7-0 against this team recently and their team spot is the obvious pick for FD. They also have a few guys that make for great choices on either site. This is the team that is the most stackable today.

Dignitas (+198) V Vitality (-270) (10:00 AM EST) 


PlayerDK SalaryRating 2.0Kills/RoundKASTImpact

DIG is in a rough spot and it’s hard to come up with positives. They need top tier play from f0rest and hallzerk to win and that’s unlikely here. This is not a terrible team to look at but they are an underdog and shouldn’t be a primary target.

This is as cheap as we can remember seeing the big Z and we love that. Beyond him, we need to see another guy or guys step up to sweep DIG again like they did last time. We believe in them and a combo could work from here.
