The first day of the playoffs when we really have to guess the winners in a lower bracket match for a possible double series. Is it wise to all-in on a team or is it better to spread your eggs across multiple baskets? Let’s find out.
SumaiL- is once again a no-brainer. Not only does he have a chance of a double series, but he is also statistically one of the best performers. If you really believe in OG victory there is perhaps a reason to go for Ceb, but we would advise against it. Ceb is among the worst fantasy performers in the game, so it could be very risky to slot him in, especially if OG does, indeed, lose the tomorrow series.
Instead, we will go for YATOROGOD. Counter-intuitive? Slightly. But even with single series he is expected to earn almost the same as double series Ceb. There is also a third option in Nightfall 凛, but in our opinion it is just not worth it, as you will be skipping double point chance in favor of ~7% more expected points.
With the chance of double series and some incredible performances during the playoffs Topson is an obvious choice for day four. Sure, Karl is a beast and you should absolutely slot him in if you don’t want to gamble on double series and feel unsure about the outcome between OG and Team Spirit, but we would advise against it. The chance of double points is a priority even with ~20% higher average of Karl, compared to competition.
Once again, one of the supports is an OG member. Saksa is definitely not a top fantasy earner, but he is good enough fantasy-wise to slot him in, considering high chances of double series.
Our second support is not going to be N0tail, however. Even with the double series potential, he is expected to score only ~20% more than Miposhka and it is just not worth risking it, in case OG loses.
Is all-in OG worth it? Perhaps, but it really depends on how sure you are about their victory. We will play it safe, in case the CIS youngsters do show up big time.
