We have a small 10-game slate in the majors Thursday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has six games starting at 7:05 p.m. ET.
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 Thursday, June 10th.
Yankees vs. Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET
Aaron Judge ($5,600)
Gleyber Torres ($4,300)
Gio Urshela ($4,000)
Our first team stack for Thursday night’s main slate will focus on the New York Yankees, who are wrapping up a three-game set with the Minnesota Twins. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 11, which is the highest total on the board.
The Yankees’ offense, which has struggled throughout this season, should be able to score some runs on Twins starter J.A. Happ. The Yankees have scored 17 runs through the first two games against Minnesota. The veteran pitcher is 3-2 with an ERA of 5.61 through 10 starts this season. In his last five outings, the southpaw has a soaring 10.17 ERA and he’s allowing opponents to hit .360. Right-handed hitters are crushing the 38-year-old Happ this season, slashing .279/.333/.529 with 8 HRs and 26 RBI. Judge is the star of this stack as he’s hitting .400 with 2 HRs against Happ in his career.
Astros vs. Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET
Alex Bregman ($5,000)
Yuli Gurriel ($4,000)
Yordan Alvarez ($3,700)
Offense will likely not be at premium between the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox on Thursday night. In the first two games of this series, the two teams have scored a combined 8 and 11 runs. The Astros have supplied a majority of the offense in both games and will be our second stack play.
Houston will going be up against Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez, who is 5-4 with a 5.59 ERA this season. Rodriguez has struggled in his last five starts, producing a 7.92 ERA. However, for Red Sox fans’ sake, he’s pitched better at home this season — 2-1, 4.26 in three starts. Both left and right handed batters are hitting .289 and .292 against the 28-year-old pitcher.
Royals vs. Athletics, 9:40 p.m. ET
Whit Merrifield ($5,100)
Salvador Perez ($4,900)
Carlos Santana ($4,300)
To wrap-up our best team stacks for Thursday’s main slate, we are going to look at the final game of the night between the Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics. The Royals have lost five consecutive games and averaging two runs per game. With that in mind, it seems like fading Royals is a good DFS play.
However, this could be a good breakout spot for their offense against A’s starter Frankie Montas. Despite owning a 4.25 ERA overall, Montas struggles a bit at home with an ERA of 5.31. Right-handed hitters are also hitting well against him with a slash of .292/.336/.511 and 7 HRs this season, which should bode well for the Royals.
