Major League Baseball presents a matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Let’s take a look at this MLB game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks game let’s review the rules for the Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate.

Here are my Draftkings picks for tonight’s Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Gavin Stone, Pitcher, Los Angeles Dodgers $11,800

On Wednesday night, Major League Baseball presents the second game of a three-game National League series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

How are these two teams playing entering tonight’s MLB game? The Los Angeles Dodgers arrive at tonight’s game with the Arizona Diamondbacks playing quality baseball. Let me be more specific. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won seven of the team’s last ten games played in the 2024 MLB regular season. In direct contrast to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks are not playing good baseball. The Arizona Diamondbacks have lost six of the team’s last ten games, including a 6-5 defeat to the Los Angeles Dodgers last night.

Now that we have determined how both teams are currently playing let’s turn our attention to tonight’s game. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Gavin Stone has quickly established himself as one of the best starting pitchers in the National League. Having stated that, how has Stone been playing from a statistical standpoint this season? Let’s review Gavin Stone’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the 15 games that Gavin Stone has played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Stone has posted an impressive 2.73 ERA (Earned Run Average), 1.12 WHIP (walks, hits, inning pitched) and added 70 strikeouts while allowing 25 walks.

As I noted in the rules section above, selecting the correct captain is absolutely vital if you hope to win a large field GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest. In summary, I am rolling with Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Gavin Stone as my captain for this one game MLB DFS slate.

Flex Plays

Shohei Ohtani, Designated Hitter, Los Angeles Dodgers $10,000

Talented Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani is playing simply outstanding baseball. In his last six games played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2024 MLB regular season, Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani has accumulated nine hits in 24 plate appearances. I fully expect the talented Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter to continue his quality play on the baseball diamond in tonight’s matchup versus the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Additional flex plays I like (Draftkings price noted): Jayson Heyward, Outfielder (Los Angeles Dodgers) $6,000: Freddie Freeman, First Baseman (Los Angeles Dodgers) $9,200: Ketel Marte, Second Baseman (Arizona Diamondbacks) $8,600.
