I would be concerned about any plywood or especially strand board laying directly on concrete. I would use pressure treated sleepers to level floor first, then a subfloor made for moisture or even 5/4 pressure treated deck boards. Also ask yourself: How many critters and bugs are going to move in under this gap in the floor ? Maybe layer of self leveling concrete will solve a lot of future problems .
Check prices on product called DRI CORE. Comes in 2’x2’ panels, made to lay direct on concrete. Can be removed easily if something goes wrong in future (like flooding)
These are just my thoughts !
