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?!

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!
Top Play – Kyle Lewis
As always, I’ll be hunting for value at the INF/OF spots and with Coors Field on tap tonight it’s a bit more difficult to find. I do, however, like Kyle Lewis matched up with Jose Urquidy. Lewis was once a main piece of this Mariners lineup but has struggled with injuries the last few seasons. He just recently returned from injury — so it’s a small sample-size — but he has fantastic numbers vs righties including a .362 wOBA. Urquidy struggles with right-handed batters and I think there is a good chance the Mariners can top their 4 run team total on Thursday night.
Top Pitcher – Shohei Ohtani
Well. it’s happened again. I wrote a few weeks ago that it feels like Ohtani always pitches on these watered down pitching slates thus making him the clear top option and that is exactly what’s happening tonight. He has a strong match-up against the Texas Rangers, and there is nobody that can rival his upside. Texas just doesn’t have a great lineup, with their projected starters carrying a .308 wOBA vs RHP into tonight’s game. This is also one of the only games without serious weather issues. Overall, I love to spend-up on at least one pitcher to anchor my lineup and Ohtani is the clear and obvious top play on Thursday.
Top Super-Flex Play – Alex Wood
Wood is the number two pitcher for me tonight, matched up with the Chicago Cubs. I think most people will be looking at Yusei Kikuchi against the Tigers barring weather, but I have no interest in him against a lineup that can throw a ton of right-handed hitters at him. Wood, however, is good against both sides of the plate so it’s much less of a concern. He also has an extremely positive strikeout match-up against this Cubs lineup — they come into tonight with a combined 29% strikeout rate vs left-handed pitching. He probably has the highest strikeout upside on the slate after Ohtani — unless you want to completely double-spend with Zack Wheeler — but I prefer the savings with Wood in all formats.
