To keep the CSGO action rolling, Draftkings is introducing another new event, CSGOFAST Cup 5. This is a 16 team tournament with a 15k prize pool. It features teams ranked anywhere from #45-#199 and even 2 unranked teams. There is no group stage here, so we jump straight in to the round of 16. These are best of 3. Let’s dig in!
Singularity Vs. SJ
Singularity are -250 favorites here. Pretty straight forward with them. nicoodoz is our top projected play on the slate with Celrate our 3rd highest. You could grab a 3rd piece like TOBIZ as a punt, especially if you like Singularity to sweep.
This is our first look at SJ and a few things stand out. 1. They are not very good having lost 6 straight now. 2. They haven’t played very much over the last 3 months, giving us a very small sample size for our stats. 3. Despite the losing, jemi has consistently held his own with a slate high 1.22 rating over the last 3 months. He is cash viable as he has shown the ability to produce even when SJ lose.
Consider: nicoodoz, Celrate (Cash/GPP) TOBIZ (Punt) jemi (Cash/GPP)
Prediction: 2-1 Singularity
Budapest Five Vs. ttc
B5 come in at -667, biggest favorites on the slate. Because of this, you can expect a full stack to be chalk in cash. Especially considering the clear trio of targets in torzsi, kory and fleav. bodito and coolio are viable value as well if you can’t fit all 3 of the pricey plays (kory is very expensive).
A very similar story to SJ. SJ come in having lost 5 straight while also having an extremely small sample size (pulzG’s is large because I had to pull his career numbers). And like SJ, ttc are led by KrowNii who has also shown the ability to score despite losing. He is the loan viable play for ttc.
Consider: torzsi, kory, fleav (Cash/GPP) bodito, coolio (Value)
Prediction: 2-0 Budapest 5
Note: Bold indicates a stronger lean for that player. All stats are over the course of the last 3 months.
