06.22.20 CSGO Summit EU

Hello everyone, hopefully you all had a nice father’s day. We are tested on this Monday morning to the absolute dumbest CS slate that DK has ever been able to create. We have 8 games, 16 teams total, and 3 of them are -900 or better favorites. This slate will be an absolute mess to navigate and we wouldn’t suggest playing it unless you are in contests with capped entries or you are running a few dozen lineups yourself. This is a crazy one so 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
Match Sweep Bonus +5 Pts (minimum of 2 maps 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. 

fnatic(-909) V Nordavind(+509) (9:00 AM EST)

FNC:

Golden6,0000.890.5666.60%0.82

Fnatic is the first team we are looking at and they are the -900 favorite against a crappy team. There are a few teams like this today with great matchups and each of them should be chalky. KRIMZ looks far too cheap and the top 4 guys here can all reasonably be played.

Heroic is the solid favorite here and has a lot of indicators in their favor. Their recent form has been pretty great and their map pool should help set up a favorable series. The salaries here are a bit screwy and a top value play can be found here.

There isn’t much of a reason to target these guys with so many other options on this slate. There is potential here but the prices aren’t low enough to justify shying away from other plays.

Dignitas is the heavy favorite here due to their talent advantage but their recent form and the way the map pools align should be a pause for concern. These guys have not been playing up to their salaries recently so you really have to be betting on the talent coming through against an outmatched opponent.

These guys are basically unknowns and are looking to upset one of the dynasties of CS. There are too many options to heavily invest here but h4rn has been playing well recently, even in losses.

Of the big betting favorites, MAD is the hardest to figure out. Their recent form has been less than stellar but they are more talented than their opponents. This may not be a team to stack but acoR in particular has looked great recently and seems undervalued.

This is the single dumbest matchup of the day as Jalapeño doesn’t deserve to even be in the same server as these guys. This should be a massive stomping and high ownerships should be expected. Don’t try to be different and fade this team entirely.

BIG opened a lot of people’s eyes at DreamHack with a fantastic showing and they have some of the best recent form of any team in CS. They have a couple options here who can help demolish HAVU and they may slide under the radar with so many BIG name orgs playing today.

The last 2 matches actually seem like fair, close contests which is exciting and different. C0ntact seems like the better team here but AVEZ certainly has a chance to steal this one away. This looks like a better series to watch than wager on.

This team is solid as a unit and individual star performances are not the norm. There could be some fun targets here if pricing was better but high prices and limited upside is not a great combo to go after.

ISSAA5,8001.010.6569.20%0.97

OG’s recent form has been putrid which is why they are not a bigger favorite here. We suggest avoiding this series entirely for DFS purposes and it’s hard to find any bright spots on this roster.

This team normally plays teams far below OG’s level so there may be a bad adjustment for them. Spiidi has had nice recent form for a really low price but the negative matchup makes it hard to go here unless you really need that salary.
