07.07.20 CSGO DK 9 to 5

Draftkings keeps pushing the limits of what their customers will throw money away on and that brings us into this slate. There is a big favorite for the first series and the second one is looking like a 2-1 series that could sway back and forth. We should see sAw guys as a heavy focus for most players and beyond that it gets messy. We have a ways to go until the main teams come back for tourney play to buckle in with this garbage for a bit. 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.

sAw(-333) V CR4ZY(+238) (11:00 AM EST)

These guys are the big favorites on this small slate and should see high ownership. There are a bunch of great options here and playing 3 guys from sAw makes a lot of sense with how the rest of this slate looks. This is likely the only team you can roster some guys from without stressing too much.

Even on a 2 game slate it’s hard to suggest playing anybody here, they should be swept.

AVEZ(+108) V Illuminar(-141) (3:00 PM EST)

This should be a much closer series than the other and should end up 2-1, likely in Illuminar’s favor. It looks like there should be some playable targets on either side but we should all be a bit more careful on this side of the coin. We have a favorite option here and it’s not who you may think based on their stats, one of the value options has been one of their better players recently.

Illuminar should be able to win a hard-fought series here but the problem is this team doesn’t have any obvious targets. There are a few different options at play but the top performers could end up being some of the cheaper guys. Snax is the most famous name here and should see decent ownership, hopefully one of the other guys outperforms him at a discount.
