Another day, another 2 game slate as Blast Premier continues on Saturday. Lock is at 9:30 am EDT again, and the games are:
Gambit (55% implied win probability) vs Navi
G2 (52%) vs NiP
Sub Risk/Roster Changes
Nawwk, KennyS, and Flamie are in the player pool, don’t play them.
G2 are the favorites but are priced cheaper than NiP. Except them to have much higher ownership than a 52% favorite normally would, especially as everyone will be looking to fit S1mple and/or the Gambit big 3 in the other game. This makes NiP probably the best GPP play on the slate.
Outside of that, the slate is pretty straightforward. I’d expect Gambit to come in with higher ownership than Navi, although S1mple may have the highest individual ownership from that game.
There are no wild mispricings within teams, although I will continue to say don’t overlook Amanek when you play G2. LNZ may see some increased ownership after his big day Friday, I still don’t trust him though and expect him to return to bottom fragging.
There are a lot of fantasy studs on this slate, and also NiP. Seriously though, NiP are a hard team to captain from, as they spread their fantasy points around so evenly even in wins. I’ll likely stay away for the most part.
I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that Sh1ro and S1mple will be the highest owned captains. Niko and Hunter will also probably get some ownership.
I like Hobbit because he’s always underowned at captain and also Amanek because he saves you some salary and has good upside now that he’s AWPing. They are my favorite GPP captains on this slate.
That’s it for me, good luck on Saturday!
