Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Friday, June 18th.
Brewers vs. Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET
Christian Yelich ($6,100)
Avisail Garcia ($4,600)
Omar Narvaez ($4,600)
Milwaukee has certainly seen their struggles at the plate this season, but playing in the altitude at Coors Field certainly helps. The over/under on DraftKings Sportsbook for this game is at 10.5, the highest of the night. The Brewers have a stud in Corbin Burnes on the mound, so oddsmakers are likely suggesting Milwaukee will do some damage at the plate. Antonio Senzatela will throw for Colorado, and he is just 2-7 with a 4.86 ERA.
White Sox vs. Astros, 8:10 p.m. ET
Jose Altuve ($5,600)
Yordan Alvarez ($4,600)
Yuli Gurriel ($4,300)
The Astros have been the best team offensively this season and have the most total runs scored by a fairly significant margin over the rest of the league. Alex Bregman landed on the injured list, so players will need to step up in his absence. Houston has a tough matchup with the Chicago White Sox and Carlos Rodon, but this offense exploded for 10 runs against Chicago on Thursday night and have scored at least eight in three of their last four games.
Indians vs. Pirates, 7:05 p.m. ET
Jose Ramirez ($5,500)
Cesar Hernandez ($4,800)
Bobby Bradley ($3,800)
Cleveland has a solid matchup in their game on Friday night against Pittsburgh. The over/under for this game is set at just 8.5, but there will be a real possibility of a slugfest here. While the Indians roll out Jean Carlos Mejia, who has appeared in just six games with three starts, Chad Kuhl will throw for the Pirates. He is 0-4 this season with a 6.52 ERA, so the Indians’ top hitters should be active and ready to swing.
