Major League Baseball presents a matchup between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox. Let’s take a look at this MLB game from a Draftkings perspective.

Prior to discussing the Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago White Sox 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 this afternoon’s Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago White Sox matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Bailey Ober, Pitcher, Minnesota Twins $11,800

On Wednesday afternoon, Major League Baseball presents the second game of a four game American League series between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White sox.

How are these two teams playing entering today’s MLB game? The Minnesota Twins have won five of the team’s last seven games played this season, including a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros three days ago. Conversely, the Chicago White Sox have lost four of the team’s last five games played in the 2024 MLB regular season, including an 8-6 loss to the Minnesota Twins two days ago.

Now that we have determined how both teams are currently playing let’s turn our attention to this afternoon’s game. Minnesota pitcher Bailey Ober has quickly established himself as a valuable member of this Minnesota Twins pitching rotation this season. How has Ober been playing from a statistical standpoint? Let’s review Bailey Ober’s recent game data to answer that question.

In the 17 games that Bailey Ober has pitched for the Minnesota Twins in the 2024 MLB regular season, Ober has posted a respectable 4.12 ERA (Earned Run Average), a 1.10 WHIP (walks, hits, inning pitched), and added a robust 100 strikeouts while allowing 23 walks.

It is noteworthy that Bailey Ober faced off against this White Sox earlier this season. In that matchup, Twins pitcher Bailey Ober pitched six quality innings and accumulated three strikeouts while allowing zero walks in the Minnesota Twins 10-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

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 talented Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Bailey Ober as my captain for this one game MLB DFS slate.

Flex Plays

Carlos Correa, Shortstop, Minnesota Twins $9,800

Carlos Correa comes into Wednesday’s game as the Twins top run producer, collecting 46 RBI while crushing 12 home runs in 2024. His .303 average is also the best of any player on the Minnesota Twins roster in 2024.

I fully expect Minnesota Twins shortstop Carlos Correa to continue his quality play on the baseball diamond in this afternoon’s matchup versus the Chicago White Sox.

Additional flex plays I like (Draftkings price noted): Erick Freddie, Starting Pitcher, (White Sox) $11,000: Nicky Lopez, Second Baseman, (White Sox) $3,600.
