3 game slate. Let’s dig in!
Vitality Vs. BIG
Wow it doesn’t get much better than this! Vitality are one of the hottest teams in the world, making 2 straight event finals with a win and a 2nd place finish. Despite this, they come in as pick em dogs at -101, speaking to the form BIG are also in. We know the deal with Vitality. ZywOo is, per usual, our top projected play on the slate. Dude is arguably the best player in the world. RpK is having a 2nd straight really solid event and is extremely cheap here. Making him a viable punt option.
BIG are -128 pick em favorites, which is actually 2nd largest favorites on the slate. We know the story here. Stick to the big 3 of XANTARES, tabseN and syrsoN. For some reason Draftkings just refuses to be consistent with their pricing as we now see a very affordable XANTARES and syrsoN. Expect XANTARES to be very popular.
Consider: ZywOo (Cash/GPP) RpK (Punt) XANTARES, tabseN, syrsoN (Cash/GPP)
Prediction: 2-1 BIG
fnatic Vs. GODSENT
fnatic are the slates biggest and only true favorite at -244. They feature 4 viable plays with Brollan being the top option while JW is a value option. fnatic won the lone meeting with GODSENT, 2-1 on May 26th.
The only true dog on the slate. Fade in cash. If looking to MME, everyone but kRYSTAL is a viable GPP play.
Consider: Brollan, KRIMZ, flusha (Cash/GPP) JW (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 fnatic
Liquid Vs. Evil Geniuses
Liquid are true pick em favorites at -115. These two have met a ton this year, including just a few days ago. This matchup marks the 7th time they will have met in 2020 alone. Liquid really dominated to start the year, winning the first 4. But it is EG who have won the last 2. EliGE and NAF are the top options here.
Considering EG are about as small of dogs as you can be and they have won 2 straight against Liquid and 5 straight overall, they are very much cash viable here. Brehze, CeRq and Ethan are the top options while tarik is a cheaper option if you need the savings.
Consider: EliGE, NAF (Cash/GPP) Brehze, CeRq, Ethan (Cash/GPP) tarik (Value)
Prediction: 2-1 Evil Geniuses
Note: Bold indicates a stronger lean for that player. All stats are over the course of the last 3 months.
