MLB DFS 8/1/22 – 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!

Make sure you get in our free Discord chat room to join all our 24/7/365 OwnersBox lineup discussions as well!

Top Play – Nick Pratto

Pratto continues to be undervalued on OwnersBox, and can be plugged in as a value INF almost nightly. He has a pretty tough on-paper match-up against Michael Kopech, but there are reasons for optimism tonight. For starters, Pratto has continually looked more comfortable at the plate and actually now owns the highest wOBA on the team against right-handed pitching. Kopech has been much worse vs left-handed batters this season, allowing a .332 wOBA and a near .200 ISO. The good news is that Kopech doesn’t have much variety in his pitch mix to lefties — he throws almost 65% fastballs and Pratto should know what’s coming tonight. Regardless, this is too cheap for a hitter of his quality and he will eventually break out and be priced much higher…let’s take advantage while we can.

Top Pitcher – Jon Gray

Despite it being a smaller Monday slate, we have some strong pitching options starting with Jon Gray against the Baltimore Orioles. Gray has been in full breakout mode for the Rangers this season, and the Rockies have to be in complete shambles that they let him walk for free. He’s striking out 27% of batters faced this season, and sets up very well against this lineup. Not only does this lineup struggle with right-handed pitching, but they struggle with sliders as well. No player projected in other than Cedric Mullins and Adley Rutschman owns a wOBA above .285 against sliders. gray relies heavily on his slider to get strikeouts, and generates a 40% whiff rate with the pitch this season. He could really carve up this roster, and he’s my number one play on Monday.

Top Super-Flex Play – Mike Clevinger

San Diego made a huge move on Monday trading for Josh Hader, but we are targeting their starter in Mike Clevinger against the Rockies. Colorado is once again one of the worst offenses in baseball away from Coors Field, and Clevinger has arguably the highest ceiling on tonight’s slate. Sunshine does have strikeout upside, but he should be able to be efficient against an offense with a combined .303 wOBA against righties this season. Clevinger is installed as a big -210 favorite tonight, and is the most likely pitcher on this evening’s slate to secure the win points as well. It’s a clear spend-up on pitcher night for me, and that’s the strategy I will be implementing.
