LON (7-8) vs. OGLA (7-10)
I think it's safe to say the Zer0 effect has been a strong one. After 3-0ing his former team, the Subliners, in Saturday's contest, the European slayer now has back-to-back contests with at least 90+ DK points. Of course there's only two games taking place Sunday, but it's still stunning to see him sit as the fourth highest-priced player after spending the past two days hovering around $6,000.
Of the two series Sunday, I feel slightly more confident CHI/NYS could end up playing four or more games, and as we learned from Saturday's slate, identifying which team will ultimately play more matches can be the literal difference between cashing and not. Still, I think the likes of both Zer0 and Skrapz have to be in consideration for this series no matter who you see winning, if only because of their guaranteed slaying roles.
On the flip side, SlasheR has been absolutely dominant for OpTic Gaming, to the point he needs to be a lock in any lineup. Kuavo also always has the potential to go off, but he's been inconsistent at times, popping off Saturday in large part because OpTic played in some more close-quarter maps. I have no idea whether that will occur Sunday, but with the pricing the way it is, you really only need one sub $8,000-priced player to give you flexibility
