Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Monday, June 14th.
Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets, 7:10 EST
Kris Bryant ($5,900)
Anthony Rizzo ($5,400)
Willson Contreras ($4,800)
The Cubs have one of the better offenses in baseball and are having a ton of success with the long ball, hitting the sixth most in baseball. They’ll be facing off with Mets starter David Peterson, who is the starter you want to see when the Mets roll into town. His ERA is up over six and he’s given up 15 runs in his last 13.2 innings pitched. This group of veteran hitters should be able to take advantage of a struggling hurler.
Washington Nationals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, Game Time
Trea Turner ($5,700)
Juan Soto ($6,000)
Ryan Zimmerman ($5,200)
The Nats take on the Pirates tonight in a battle of two last-place teams. The Nats offense is ranked ninth in baseball in terms of average and not much farther back in many other categories. They’ll take on a Pittsburgh team that has given up about five runs per game over their last eight nights.
Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners, 10:10 p.m. EST
Josh Donaldson ($5,100)
Nelson Cruz ($5,200)
Trevor Larnach ($3,000)
The Twins as a whole are not a very good team, which is why they’re in the bottom of the AL Central. Still, they have a pretty solid offense, ranking in the top 10 in batting average, and second in the league with long balls. The Mariners pitching staff has fallen on hard times and will send a starter to the mound with a near 6 ERA. As a team, they’re giving up nearly seven runs per game on average over their last eight games, so Minnesota’s offense should be able to string together hits with these three guys in the middle getting plenty of RBI opportunities.
