DraftKings CS:GO Esports DFS Rundown (Pinnacle) – November 22, 2021
Dignitas (DIG) v.s. BLINK (BLINK) (9:00 AM EST)
Two teams within close rankings face off with BLINK being rank 36th while DIG is 40th. BLINK had the win-rate edge of 72.7% compared to DIG’s 53.3%. Both rigoN and juanflatroo continue to be the most reliable slayers for BLINK with rigoN dealing the most damage as of late per round (85.7). However, both players are coming off negative kill-death differential games. Fortunately for BLINK, no one on DIG averages damage near the 80 range. This should give rigoN and juanflatroo the perfect opportunity to regain and help get their team the win. DIG’s most efficient slayer in hallzerk may have an edge in his sniper battles with 75.7 damage per round against his opposing sniper in gxx- with 66.3 damage per round. However, due to the damage disadvantage amongst the other players it still may not be enough for DIG to overcome.
MASONIC (MAS) v.s. forZe team (FORZE) (9:00 AM EST)
MAS will be looking to extend their three-game winning streak against a FORZE team trying to rebound from a one-game loss. FORZE’s most relied upon slayer as of late has been their main sniper zorte with a 1.19 K/D and coming off a +3 kill-death differential game in a loss so more than likely he may have to anchor well for his team to have a chance. Unfortunately, he’d be clashing with a more efficient sniper as of late in J3nsyy who has a 1.36 K/D as of late and assisting his team more (0.10 rate) compared to zorte’s 0.08 rate. This may end up putting a ton more pressure on FORZE due to the fact their most efficient slayer in zorte was able to perform at a decent rate and they still lost their previous match. Also, MAS has another player in Queenix who has also been contributing heavily with a 1.22 K/D and coming off a +23 kill-death differential game that can be problematic for FORZE since they don’t have anyone outside of zorte averaging close to that amount of efficiency.
Nexus (NEX) v.s. MOUZ NXT (MOUZ) (11:30 AM EST)
This may be the first potential one-sided game on the slate in favor of MOUZ who are currently ranked 32nd and on a three-game win-streak against a NEX squad that is 86th on a one-game win-streak. Despite the slight regression from last game (+7 kill-death differential from a +30 kill-death differential the series before) torzsi is long ahead of his opposers with a current 1.42 K/D and as the main sniper for his MOUZ squad. The opposing sniper in XELLOW of NEX has been averaging less damage as well (77.2) compared to torzsi’s 79.6 so this bodes well for MOUZ’s chances to prevail in the sniper battles. XELLOW is also NEX’s most relied on slayer so they may end up getting dominated early here.
SKADE (SKA) v.s. (AGF) (11:30 AM EST)
Another uneven match from the surface will go underway as the 31st ranked SKA faces off with the 187th ranked AGF. Fortunately, for SKA the last time these teams faced off SKA was able to shut them out 2-0 in a series. Of the top two slayers from that previous match dennyslaw is more likely to contribute more for SKA due to him having the highest K/D on his team with 1.19. Nodios has been gradually improving again for AGF and has been dealing the most damage per round out of both sides (80.4) and a high assist rate per round (0.16) which may lead to him helping his team put up a good fight against SKA. The largest edge Nodios also has is the fact he wasn’t on the roster the last time these teams met. This should prevent his tactics from being as predictable to the SKA players. However, the closest player of Nodious’ efficiency in SHiPZ may be able to put up a good fight against him whenever they cross paths. SHiPz has been dealing 79.6 damage as of late which is slightly less than Nodios’ 80.4 damage but should be just enough to complement dennyslaw.
