06.12.20 CSGO DreamHack

We have a lot of talent going today on a 3 gamer and it should be a great day for CS. We saw s1mple pop off yesterday but he is against FaZe today and other elite options exist around the slate. This should be a nice slate to see ownerships a bit more spread around so everybody have fun! 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

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. 

NaVi(-179) V FaZe(+136) (8:00 AM EST)

S1mple was absurd yesterday and his price has dropped a lot to reflect the tough matchup. They are the current betting favorites, having beaten FaZe recently along with their great recent form. S1mple was the only player to go positive in that series and may be looking for more help from his teammates as we saw yesterday. This should be a good one!

FaZe has been playing great, except for a blown series against BIG, and a lot of that has to do with picked up efforts from cold and broky. NiKo has not had to carry as much with his wingmen chipping in and they stand a solid chance to upset here. If targeting this team, picking 2 of their core 3 seems like a good call.

Liquid is the safest bet on this slate and their prices are high but approachable. We haven’t seen Liquid in about 2 weeks so hopefully they are well rested and well prepared for this matchup and pulling 2 of these guys or more doesn’t seem crazy.

These guys have been swept in their last 2 series and things aren’t getting any easier for them here. They may take a map but they should really lose this series as long as Liquid looks right. Don’t target these guys aside from contrarian plays.

They already beat Cloud9 last week but these guys seem to love breaking our hearts. It was a 2-1 series that was decided on Dust II and we don’t know how the rework will affect pro play but we’ll probably see that get banned this time. Except another close series with a few good players on each side rising to the top.

Cloud9 is looking for revenge but MiBR is an exceptional team when they are on point. The map pool should be a bit different this time around but that will try to keep it close again. A 2-1 loss seems likely or a 2-1 win, in either scenario be careful targeting too many guys here.
