MLB DFS 8/9/22 – 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 – Jason Delay

We are always craving value, and I think we can find some tonight with the Pirates bats. We haven’t seen a ton of Tommy Henry, but the results have been terrible over the small-sample pitching to a 8/16 xFIP. Tonight will be his second start, but it appears he’s really going to struggle with right-handed batters. Delay bats at the bottom of the Pirates order, but his .570 expected wOBA provides hope that he could be one of their better hitters down the stretch of this season. He’s making hard-contact at a high-clip, and it’s noteworthy that the Pirates sport a four run team total with how bad they’ve been. I think they can put up runs tonight, and they make for a strong cheap stack.

Top Pitcher – Shohei Ohtani

We have aces galore on Tuesday night, but I don’t think it’s possible to fade Shohei Ohtani at this moment in time. He’s struck out double-digits in six of his last seven starts — the outlier being a seven strikeout outing against his opponent tonight, the Oakland Athletics. This Oakland lineup is absolutely dreadful, and they carry a combined .273 wOBA against righties into tonight. Ohtani has cemented himself as one of the best strikeout artists in the game, thanks in part to a dominant slider. Oakland projects to have no batter in the lineup tonight with a wOBA above .270 against sliders. He has the highest ceiling on this slate, and is the top arm in all formats.

Top Super-Flex Play – Pete Alonso

I usually write up two pitchers, but I simply can’t ignore this spot for the New York Mets and their near six run team total. They match up with Mike Minor, who has been one of the most attackable pitchers in baseball with right-handed hitters this season. We have just over a 190 PA sample-size of Minor vs RHH resulting in a massive .426 wOBA and .329 ISO allowed. We know that Alonso is one of the best hitters in the MLB vs southpaws — and he’s shown that again in 2022 with dominant numbers in the split. More importantly, Minor throws fastballs at a 50% clip, a pitch that Alonso has feasted on in his career. His .472 expected wOBA and .246 ISO vs heaters are the best numbers in this lineup. He is expensive, but has a sky-high ceiling and I could see him having multiple XBH on Tuesday evening.
