MLB DFS 8/4/22 – 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!

Top Play – Yadi Hernandez

There are some strong pitching options tonight, so we are going to need to find some value. Hernandez is not a world beating hitter by any stretch, but he is near min-price and has respectable numbers against right-handed pitching. This Washington lineup is extremely watered down without Bell/Soto, but his .360 expected wOBA is near the top of the team and that comes with a solid 4% hard-hit rate. Thor relies heavily on his changeup against lefties — a pitch that Hernandez has actually excelled against. Over the last three seasons, he owns a team-best 55% hard-hit rate against changeups. Overall, he’s so cheap he only needs one hit to feel going about him tonight.

Top Pitcher – Jeffrey Springs

There are some quality pitchers on tonight’s slate but none of them stick out above Jeffrey Springs against the Detroit Tigers. I will note that there are weather concerns for this game, and that’s something we need to monitor up until lock. Springs has been fantastic for Tampa this season, striking out 26% of batters faced. Typically, we can’t take left-handed pitchers against the Tigers because they can chuck so many righties in the lineup, but Springs doesn’t fall into that category. He actually strikes out a higher percentage of righties than lefties, so the more right-handed hitters the better on tonight’s lineup card. I like him over Justin Verlander tonight, and he will be a staple in my builds.

Top Super-Flex Play – Kyle Schwarber

Typically, I write up two pitchers but I can’t ignore this spot for Schwarber and the Philadelphia Phillies. They have a massive 6 run team total tonight in a good match-up against Paolo Espino. Espino is actually worse against right-handed hitters than lefties, but he still isn’t good by any means. He has little to no strikeout ability, and balls are going to be put into play against him. Schwarber has some of the best numbers in baseball against righties this season, and this is a strong spot for his power. Espino throws a ton of fastballs to both sides of the plate, and Schwarber sports a massive .310 ISO against heaters. I think he has the highest power upside on tonight’s slate, and he’s my top target in all formats.
