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

Before we dive into the Los Angeles Dodgers 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 tonight’s Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago White Sox matchup.

Draftkings Picks

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

On Wednesday night, Major League Baseball presents the final game of a three-game Interleague series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago White Sox.

How are these two teams playing entering tonight’s MLB game? The Los Angeles Dodgers arrive at tonight’s game with the Chicago White Sox on the heels of a three-game winning streak that culminated with a 4-3 win over the White Sox last night. Conversely, the Chicago White Sox have lost four of the team’s last five games, including last night’s loss to the Dodgers.

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. 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 13 games that Gavin Stone has played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Stone has posted a 3.04 ERA (Earned Run Average) and added 63 strikeouts while allowing 25 walks.

The Chicago White Sox have played as underdogs in 10 of their past 10 games and won three of those contests. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that the White Sox are underdogs again tonight at home versus a formidable Dodgers lineup. Yet another reason I like Dodgers pitcher Gavin Stone as my captain for this Draftkings single game contest

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

In his last six games played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani has accumulated eight hits in 20 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 Chicago White Sox.

Additional flex plays I like (Draftkings price noted): Jayson Heyward, Outfield (Dodgers) $6,200: Freddie Freeman, First Baseman (Dodgers) $9,400: Nicky Lopez, Second Baseman, (White Sox) $3,800.
