We have a full 16-game slate in the majors on Saturday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has seven 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 Saturday, June 19th.

Cardinals vs. Braves, 7:15 p.m. ET

Nolan Arenado ($5,200)
Tommy Edman ($4,700)
Yadier Molina ($3,600)

For our first team stack, we are going to look at the St. Louis Cardinals, who will be playing the third game of their four-game set against the Atlanta Braves. The Cardinals’ offense has been silent through the first two games, scoring one run in 18 innings. However, they should be able to break out of their slump against Drew Smyly. Smyly has allowed 15 HRs this season and has a 5.63 ERA.

If you decide to pursue a Cards’ stack, one player to consider is second baseman Tommy Edman. The switch hitter has recorded a hit in three out of his five games. This season, he’s slashing .333/.404/.608 with 2 HRs and 5 RBI against left-handed pitchers.

Brewers vs. Rockies, 9:10 p.m. ET

Trevor Story ($5,600)
C.J. Cron ($4,300)
Raimel Tapia ($3,500)

The Colorado Rockies and Milwaukee Brewers are going in complete opposite directions heading into Saturday night’s contest. The Brewers have lost five straight games, while the Rockies have won five consecutive games and are averaging 6.4 runs per game. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 10.5, which is the highest on the board.

We are going to roll with the Rockies as they go up against Adam Houser on the mound. Houser is 4-5 with a 3.62 ERA in 13 games this season, but on the road his ERA goes up to 3.77. Left-handed hitters are slugging .280/.331/.432 with 4 HRs and 11 RBI this season against Houser. Raimel Tapia is a must start in the Rockies’ team stack and just in DFS overall on Saturday. The 27-year-old outfielder has a 15-game hitting streak going on, where he is slashing .435/.443/.623 with 13 doubles. He’s also averaging 12.1 fantasy points per game during his hitting streak.

Tigers vs. Angels, 10:07 p.m. ET

Shohei Ohtani ($5,500)
Jared Walsh ($5,400)
David Fletcher ($3,200)

To end our team stacks for Saturday’s main slate, we are going to highlight the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels have scored 18 runs in their first two games against the Detroit Tigers, which features 3 home runs from AL MVP candidate Shohei Ohtani.

The Angels’ offense should have another favorable matchup with the Tigers starting Wily Peralta, who is making his MLB start since 2017. Jared Walsh is a nice add for the Angels’ team stack as he’s hitting .331 against right-handed pitchers this season. Overall, he’s slugging .279 with 16 HRs, 48 RBI, and averaging 8.6 FPPG.
