Hello Esports Department Subscribers! This year we have partnered with Thrive Fantasy to PropUp this season.
For those of you unfamiliar with what Thrive Fantasy is, it is a different version of Daily Fantasy Sports that is solely based around player props. Each prop has a designated point value to it and your goal is to score the most points by selecting five different props (players must play to count, so you cannot just select a non-starter and choose the under).
Recap of last week:
We’re back for another week and this is going to be the week we go 3-0 again. Last week was a tilting 1-2. Neo easily went over 3.5 kills/deaths. The IMT/100T game was just a weird game, Closer was legitimately just not trying to get kills at some point and leaving them for his teammates, and Xerxe just did not die. If you would have told me Closer would play Olaf and he would win, I would have guessed he had at least 3 kills every time. NA league of legends best of ones are fun!
Stixxay under 1.5 Kills
We’re starting this week out with a spicy 110 point recommendation. Golden Guardians comes into this week fresh of a big win over 100 Thieves, and Cloud 9 comes in off a loss to Team Liquid. To me it feels like a great spot for Cloud 9 to come back out with some fire and pick up an easy win. I don’t think there will be many kills on the side of GGs’ bot lane given C9’s track record this season, and in turn taking the chance at Stixxay having only 1 kill or less seems like a good idea to me. In GG’s 12 losses so far, Stixxay is averaging 1.58 kills/game. In 7 of those 12 games, he has had 1 or less kills. So, this might be closer to a coin flip on kill variance, but I think it’s worth the shot at 110 points.
Zven under 3.5 Deaths
I’m struggling with recommending the higher points this week, so I am going to double up on the C9/GGS game and say Zven dies less than 4 times against GGS. In the 26 games C9 have played, Zven has died 4 times in THREE of those games. Of those, only one of them was in a C9 win. I am expecting a smooth victory for C9 and in turn Zven will not be dying 4 times or more. I will take my 90 points and move on.
Damonte over 4.5 Assists
This is another one that seems solid for 90 points. Over the 20 games that Damonte has played with 100T, he is averaging 7.85 assist per game. If there is one thing that CLG has been good at this year, it is dying. They’re averaging 17.85 deaths per game so far this season. CLGs high deaths combined with Damonte’s numbers make this one a good pick for this week.
SwordArt over 6.5 assists (If TSM is going to beat TL, SwordArt should go over 7 assists, IF TSM loses, he probably does not get to 7 assists). I did not want to include this in my main 3, but I think TSM realistically can beat TL (they just did 2 weeks ago), but I’m not super confident, because it is NA and anyone can beat anyone.
Best of luck in your contests this week!
