MLB DFS 7/17/22 – OwnersBox Best Buys

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! Once you decide to deposit, they will add another FREE $25 to your account, no matter how much you deposit! Make sure you get in our free Discord chat room to join all our 24/7/365 OwnersBox lineup discussions as well!

Every Friday we will be dropping a SuperFlex Fridays podcast on our YouTube channel to help you build your lineups. Here is today’s episode below:

Top Play – Tyler O’Neill

O’Neill sticks out as a prime value target on Sunday against Graham Ashcraft. Ashcraft has been a great addition to the Reds rotation, and is due for some positive regression coming his way. Through his first half season, his excepted ERA is almost a full run lower than his actual mark of 4.45. The main reason for his struggles has been his inability to consistently get right-handed hitters out. He’s allowing a .384 wOBA in the split compared to a .232 mark against left-handed hitters. O’Neill has some of the best numbers on the team against righties since the start of last season, sporting a .343 wOBA and .243 ISO. This season hasn’t been great dealing with injuries, but he still has a solid 22% line-drive rate. This is simply too cheap for a player with O’Neill raw power and he can be used in all formats today.

Top Pitcher – Jake Odorizzi

OwnersBox Main Slate kicks off just after 2pm on Sunday, but leaves us with a lot to be desired at the pitcher position. Ton’s of big name pitchers go off in the 1pm hour, which leaves us with a watered down pitching field. Of all the options today, Jake Odorizzi sticks out both as my favorite and the safest matches up with the Oakland Athletics. It’s hard to put the words Odorizzi and safe in the same sentence, he’s been terrible overall over the last few seasons. Luckily for him, the A’s have been terrible this season as well and their projected lineup today owns a combined .265 wOBA against right-handed pitching. He’s listed as a huge -285 favorite, and is my top option this afternoon.

Top Super-Flex Play – Willson Contreras

Like yesterday, I typically write up two pitchers but with the complete uncertainty at the position today I am siding with Willson Contreras as a building block. Outside of Odorizzi, there is no pitcher I feel super comfortable with to tag as a must play. Contreras is in a great game for offense today, but it does look like the weather won’t be as good as we expected it to be in terms of wind. Regardless, this is a great spot for the Cubs offense against Dillon Peterson. Peterson has actually been solid for the Mets this season, but Contreras has been one of the best hitters in baseball vs left-handed pitching this season. His .447 wOBA ranks second in baseball this season and his .408 ISO is number one. I think he is a fantastic play on Sunday.
