07.08.20 CSGO DK Mythic

We have only a 2 gamer for Mythic today and each series has a team that is much better on paper. It should be a chalky day and if nothing weird happens, a lot of ties will be at the top of the leaderboards. Small slates can be fun but you better not make any mistakes or you will be punished today! Good luck everyone 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.

Chaos has been on a roll and has advantages against Yeah in nearly every way. The map pool looks heavily one sided and we could end up seeing a sweep here but we hope Yeah puts up more of a fight than that. Pricing here is too low for the best upside on the slate.

Yeah looked great yesterday against a far weaker opponent but dumau was unexciting. We’d love to see a rebound from him but this is likely not the spot for it. Playing anybody outside of RCF may be risky as this has the potential to get out of hand early and crush DFS opportunities.

Triumph has handled T1 recently but they have a few maps that they are not too keen on that T1 likes to play. There is a chance for a sweep here as well but a 2-1 series looks to be the most likely scenario. The top 3 guys here are great options again and curry was spicy yesterday and looks like a bargain here.

These guys have the better shot at upsetting and have the distinction of being really cheap. Prt and b4rtin are the guys we are considering and both can be cheap one offs to get some exposure to a third team in this thin slate. They have the best chances of doing well and a surprise series would likely be led by both of them. Playing 1 in a lineup with Triumph guys can be okay but if playing both, limit your Tri exposure.
