DraftKings CS:GO Esports DFS Rundown (BLAST) – October 13, 2021
Lynn Vision (LYNN) v.s. G2 Esports (G2) (6:30 AM EST) (-5700 G2)
To start off the slate the matchup is more sided with LYNN coming in at rank 117th and G2 being ranked 5th. Unfortunately for LYNN, they are at a drastic disadvantage slaying wise compared to G2 (0.98 for LYNN and 1.02 for G2). LYNN’s fate may end up in their main sniper z4kr’s hands who happens to be the only one with a positive kill-death ratio as of late (1.11). With AmaNEk recently sniping more G2 and being less efficient than z4kr should help LYNN in those gunfights specifically. However, with NiKo going on a tear as of late and dealing an average 90.3 damage per round which is higher than anyone on LYNN which could be problematic for them. G2 has also faced more skilled snipers in previous games so they shouldn’t be affected by z4kr too much.
paiN Team (PAIN) v.s. OG (OG) (9:00 AM EST) (-285 OG)
Both teams in this matchup have win-rates on the higher end with paiN currently having the edge with 74.1% compared to OG’s 62.5%. Saffee of PAIN is coming off a rough game but has a chance to redeem himself against mantuu in sniper duels the majority of the match and safeee currently has a higher assist rate per round 0.11 which bodes well for PAIN. Also, safe is currently averaging 82.8 damage per round which is the most on either team. Although PAIN has been slaying more efficiently than OG as a team as of late the sniper duels will be crucial to either team’s success. Mantuu and saffee have proven this especially in their last teams’ wins being at least top two in kills and having the highest kill/assist rates in their matches.
Mad Lions (MAD) v.s. Evil Genuises (EG) (12:00 PM EST) (-115 MAD)
EG seem to be finding their groove again as they try to build on their four-game win streak. However, MAD is also on a four-game win streak with a higher win-rate of 73.3% compared to EG’s 33.3%. The emergence of CeRq again has helped EG tremendously with a +34 kill-death differential across those games. This recent performance is significant for EG since he is the main sniper/anchor of the team. On the other hand, Woro2k will give CeRq a challenge at the position with a 1.31 K/D as of late and 0.10 assist rate compared to CeRq’s 1.10 K/D/0.08 assist average per round. Last time EG lost CeRq went neutral which is not a good look for them right now if CeRq ends up regressing. The fact that TMB is dealing damage within the same range (80+) as Woro2k can potentially make gunfights difficult for EG as well. That being said this may end up resulting in EG losing their win streak.
