06.30.20 CSGO Summit

We had a head scratcher of a slate today. Pricing is up up up all over the place and we have some big favorites where that makes sense and then some other matchups where it’s a bit more difficult to understand. In any case, value should be extremely important here so good luck and gma eon! 

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

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. 

NiP(-227) V GODSENT(+170) (12:00 PM EST)

NiP:

hampus4,6000.970.6367.40%0.98

Plopski and nawwk continue to look lost for this team and we are finally seeing the other guys’ prices rise. This is not a particularly appealing matchup and the pricing here is a huge turn off. The bottom 3 guys have been their best performers of late but do you really want to pay $7k+ for these guys?

GODSENT has been playing better than NiP recently and would be our pick of the day to upset. Farlig is priced like a superstar and it’s hard to imagine that he can pay off that absurd salary or otherwise we’d be really high on him. Our best advice is to play the 3 game late slate so you can just avoid this matchup.

G2(-529) V Movistar Riders(+345) (4:00 PM EST)

AmaNeK6,2000.990.6171.80%0.85

It’s been a while since these teams last met and in one of the 2 maps they played, MR won a single round. G2 is significantly better across the board and the only hesitation would be their mediocre recent form. This is a dream matchup and that’s why we see such jacked up pricing here.

Bymas5,2000.960.5967.90%0.88

Both of these teams are in funks right now and frankly look terrible. FaZe beat ENCE recently and that was a hard fought 2-1 series before a map 3 stomp. Most of the team did really well there and this should be the rebound these guys need after a few rough series. Their pricing is approachable and they are stackable.

This is a really tough matchup for these guys, especially when they are already looking a bit dazed and confused. Pricing makes it tough to consider allu who is usually the highest upside guy here so we all may need to consider value options if looking here at all.

nitr05,4000.930.5870.40%0.81

Liquid hasn’t lost even a map to these guys, dating all the way back to May of ‘19. There is little reason to expect that to change here but it’s important to note that a sweep is not a guarantee and these are often contested maps and we could see a battle that goes the distance.

There is not a lot to like here. Unless they keep it close, we could see all 5 guys go negative. Gratisfaction’s AWP seems to play okay against these guys and he would be the go to guy if targeting this team.
