Best MLB team stacks for DFS on Friday, May 7th

We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Friday’s main slate.

MLB DFS and best bets including Giancarlo Stanton and Jack Flaherty

There is a huge, 14-game main slate waiting for you on DraftKings tonight. Just make sure to check the game forecasts before you put your lineups together; rain is threatening to wipe out the scheduled action in Baltimore, Detroit and Cleveland.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Friday, May 7th.

Yankees vs. Nationals, 7:05 ET

DJ LeMahieu ($5,200)
Giancarlo Stanton ($5,100)
Aaron Judge ($4,700)
Gleyber Torres ($4,600)

This certainly isn’t the cheapest stack, but regardless, the Yankees’ righty-heavy lineup should do damage at home against Nats lefty Patrick Corbin, who enters tonight’s start with an ERA above 8.00. Whatever you do, make sure you find space for Stanton, who is arguably the hottest hitter in the game right now. He has six homers and is batting .481 over his past 12 games.

Diamondbacks vs. Mets, 7:10 ET

Eduardo Escobar ($5,300)
Carson Kelly ($5,000)
Josh Rojas ($4,300
Christian Walker ($3,800)

While I like the Yankees’ stack more, it should be noted that no team has been better against left-handed pitching this year than the D-Backs, who lead MLB with a .511 slugging percentage and an .858 OPS versus southpaws. They will take their hacks tonight against Mets LHP David Peterson. Rojas has been on a roll at the plate recently, and Kelly owns an 1.122 OPS through 62 at-bats.

Cardinals vs. Rockies, 8:15 ET

Paul Goldschmidt ($5,100)
Nolan Arenado ($4,700)
Paul DeJong ($4,200)
Tyler O’Neill ($2,800)

You think Arenado will be a little pumped up to face the Rockies tonight? Yeah, he’s going to want to make a statement this weekend in St. Louis. Colorado will send LHP Austin Gomber, who came to the Rockies in the Arenado trade, to the mound tonight. I think St. Louis’ righty bats will be all over him. That includes the power-laden O’Neill, who has been hitting well since his return from the IL on April 23 and is very enticing at this low price.
