Draftkings picks and predictions for this evening's Brewers vs. Dodgers matchup.

July 5, 2024 10:10 pm EDT

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

Before we dive into the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers 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 Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Tyler Glasnow, Pitcher, Los Angeles Dodgers $11,800

On Friday night, Major League Baseball presents the first game of a three game National League series between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

How are these two teams playing entering tonight’s MLB game? The Milwaukee Brewers arrive at tonight’s game with the Los Angeles Dodgers on the heels of seven wins in the team’s last 11 games played in the 2024 MLB regular season that culminated with a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies two days ago. Conversely, the Los Angeles Dodgers Mariners have lost two of the team’s last three games played this season, including a 9-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks last night.

Now that we have identified how both teams are currently playing let’s turn our attention to this evening’s game. Los Angeles pitcher Tyler Glasnow has established himself as a valuable member of the Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitching rotation this season. Having stated that, how has Glasnow been playing from a statistical standpoint? Let’s review Tyler Glasnow’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the 17 games that Tyler Glasnow has pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2024 MLB regular season, Glasnow has posted a 3.23 ERA (Earned Run Average), a 0.93 WHIP (walks, hits, inning pitched), and added a whopping 136 strikeouts while allowing 27 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 Tyler Glasnow 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 seven games played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2024 MLB regular season, Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani has accumulated nine hits and three walks in 27 plate appearances. I expect the talented Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter to continue his quality play on the baseball diamond in tonight’s matchup versus the Milwaukee Brewers.

Additional flex plays I like this evening (Draftkings price noted): Aaron Civale, Pitcher (Milwaukee Brewers) $10,600: Freddie Freeman, First Baseman (Los Angeles Dodgers) $9,200: Christian Yelich, Outfielder (Milwaukee Brewers) $8,800.
