We are beyond thrilled to “officially” announce our newest partners at OwnersBox. While being well known for their WFS (Weekly Fantasy Sports) product, they have recently launched their first ever DFS platform and have been using none other than Karma Nation to test it! You’re probably asking yourself right now, what is OwnersBox and how are they different?
What is OwnersBox? How are they different?
OwnersBox is the newest DFS lineup platform giving you more lineup flexibility than ANYONE else by creating a “SuperFlex“. For MLB, this roster spot allows you to lock in ANY infielder, ANY outfielder, and ANY starting pitcher! You are also not forced to play any specific position as their MLB lineup is simply 4 infielders, 3 outfielders, 1 starting pitcher, and the 1 SuperFlex spot!
Sounds interesting, how do I sign up?!
Glad you asked! You want to CLICK HERE to download their app on whatever mobile device you own. By doing that and using promo code KARMA, you will automatically get a FREE $5 added to your account!

Make sure you get in our free Discord chat room to join all our 24/7/365 OwnersBox lineup discussions as well!
Top Play – Max Kepler
Minnesota has one of the bigger team totals tonight set at five runs, and I’m confused as to why Max Kepler is the minimum price of $3,000. Kepler has some of the best numbers on the team against right-handed pitching and Johny Cueto is not someone we fear on the mound. He doesn’t have the strikeout stuff to continually get outs and I do think that there’s a strong chance for the Twins to go over their team total tonight. This is too cheap for one of their best hitters who has power, and I think he is the top value easily on Wednesday night.
Top Pitcher – Corbin Burnes
It’s between Corbin Burnes and Carlos Rodon for the top-overall pitcher on Thursday night, and they just so happen to be facing each other in the same game. The O/U is set at 6.5 and all signs point to a pitchers duel in San Francisco. Both have huge strikeout upside, and both have good match-ups with the offenses coming in with 24% strikeout rates against right-handed pitching. If I had to choose one, I think I’m going with Burnes — I just think the Giants have a little less firepower in their lineup as it currently stands. Both guys are great options, and with some of the value we have at the INF/OF spots it is possible to fit in both should you choose.
Top Super-Flex Play – Triston McKenzie
Triston McKenzie has outperformed his advanced metrics by around a full run this season, but I can’t ignore him in this match-up. He draws the Detroit Tigers tonight, who we have seemingly been attacking with right-handed pitching for the last three or four seasons. Their projected lineup tonight strikes out 23% of the time and owns a combined .301 wOBA. It’s just not a good offense. Despite the regression coming, McKenzie does have strikeout ability with a 23% K% backed by 12% swinging strikes per pitch. He also has over a 70 PA sample-size against this current Tigers roster — resulting in a 30% strikeout rate. Overall, he isn’t as safe as some of the aces on this slate but the upside is there and the savings he provides can always be useful.
