06.29.20 CSGO Summit

Liquid finally took care of FURIA but everything else yesterday went according to plan. We kick off the final week of CS Summit here with the Grand Final on Sunday. We have some superstars on the slate today and a lot of mediocre options so it will probably be pretty chalky with not much room to get creative at the top, so make sure you all make the right decisions at the bottom end of your rosters. 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

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. 

OG(-208) V North(+157) (9:00 AM EST)

ISSAA6,0001.030.6470.70%0.97

Our first match of the day on DK showcases two of the less interesting teams left in the tourney. As much as we make fun of OG, they have been on a tear and this is an opponent that they are demonstrably better than. We wouldn’t go all in here, but this should at least be a very fun series.

North has some solid guys but they are really top heavy and that makes it difficult to win series. This also makes them easier to predict for DFS purposes. MSL and aizy are the only guys to even think about in a negative matchup but both are way too expensive. They are a contrarian combo only.

Vitality(-278) V Heroic(+203) (12:00 PM EST)

Vitality is one of the big favorites of the day up against Heoric here. These teams are on  different planets in terms of talent and VIT won 2-1 against them earlier this month. Heroic has a few maps where they excel so they could push this to a 3rd game again but a sweep is certainly on the table.

They may have taken a map away last time, but Heroic only won single digit rounds on the other two. There is a better chance than not that these guys get stomped here and it’s a shame because they have been playing really well recently.

NiP(-110) V fnatic(-118) (12:00 PM EST)

NiP has their hands full here with a FNC team that looks to be in pretty good form. They haven’t played each other in a while but their map pool doesn’t look too good here and they lack the firepower as a unit to handle these guys. We aren’t sure this will end up being close so be careful here as long as Plopsk island nawwk look awful.

NiP looks lost as their top frags struggle, meanwhile fnatic has been rolling. This is a great team to look to stack today with the right guys at the right price in a plus matchup. Nothing more needs to be said, fire them up.

Bettors are not liking GODSENT and with the way BIG has looked recently, we don’t blame them. We have nothing to say that’s positive here, avoid.
