07.07.20 CSGO DK Mythic

Mythic continues with a few more teams that are actual professional CS teams and some others that are….well, not. We see a -1250 favorite which is always great but it makes more sense when it’s like an NBA team versus a team of random celebrities who happen to play basketball, it should be a gross series. Beyond that there are other matchups that look more reasonable but it should be really chalky and simple; play the guys on real teams and ignore the rest. Premium notes will be in the discord, sign up today if you haven’t already. 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.

We don’t need to elaborate here, it’s the #37 team in the world against some streamers. All 5 of these guys should literally all go positive.

Betting odds are making this look like the closest series on the slate. TeamOne is the better team but they struggle on certain maps which should mean that Recon 5 takes a free map and has a real chance of snagging another to win the series as well. This R5 team could get swept but they have a chance to be maybe the only underdog on the day that wins.

Nuke should certainly come up in this series and if their woes there continue, this one should go the distance. B4rtin hasn’t looked as sharp recently and a good performance from him and the rest of the crew would make this go by quickly. If he still isn’t the dominant player he can be, this series will be shaky.

Triumph(-435) V Oceanus(+297) (9:00 PM EST)

curry6,6001.030.6471.30%1.04

Triumph’s name is apt for this matchup as they are playing a joke team that shouldn’t be here. The odds should be more grotesquely one-sided but -435 seems reasonable for an online game where crazy things can happen. Pricing here isn’t too bad and these guys should be utilized a lot and paired with Chaos.

This team should be railed, look elsewhere. Even if they manage to somehow compete, there is limited upside.

This is another series that should be lopsided but Yeah isn’t quite good enough for us to rule out an upset. RBG will have to play some flawless rounds and not take too many risks in order to upset but this is an underdog you don’t have to ignore entirely. This could just be a gross series to avoid but there are options if you wanna be funky and different.

Yeah should be the 3rd team up to target after Chaos and Triumph and that means hopefully lower ownerships with solid upside. A lot of players look good here but it’s easy to skip past the most expensive for a cheaper hidden gem. This series could make or break fantasy lineups with potential on both sides.
