We have a small 10-game schedule in the majors on Thursday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 8 games starting at 7:07 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 24th.

Orioles vs. Blue Jays, 7:07 p.m. ET

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. ($6,100)
Bo Bichette ($6,000)
Marcus Semien ($5,400)
Teoscar Hernandez ($4,500)

These two teams just played each other last week where the Blue Jays won 2 out of 3 games over the Orioles at Camden Yards. Toronto’s offense was clicking on all cylinders, averaging six runs per game. The Blue Jays should be in prime position to put up some more runs on Orioles starter Dean Kremer. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total set at 10.5, which is the highest total on the main slate.

The 25-year-old pitcher is 0-3 and has a 5.09 ERA on the road this season. Right-handed hitters have had a lot of success off Kremer this year, slugging .294/.345/.550 with 7 HRs and 14 RBI. In his last start, which coincidentally came against the Blue Jays, Kremer allowed two home runs to Marcus Semien and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Semien had two home runs in that contest and scored 34 DKFP.

Astros vs. Tigers, 7:10 p.m. ET

Jose Altuve ($5,800)
Yordan Alvarez ($5,400)
Michael Brantley ($4,200)
Kyle Tucker ($3,900)

Another game where we could see a lot of runs scored is between the Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers. The Astros’ offense has simply been on fire after wrapping up a three-game set against the Orioles. Houston has won 10 straight games and is averaging 8.1 runs per game.

Tigers starter Jose Urena is walking into a buzzsaw and could have a short night. Urena has a horrific 7.40 ERA at home and .310 opponents batting average. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 10. This is a good game to get Michael Brantley into your team stack, who is criminally undervalued at $4,200. The veteran outfielder may not provided pop in his bat, but he finds a way to get on base. Brantley has a five-game hitting streak, where he’s recording at least 2 hits.

Pirates vs. Cardinals, 8:15 p.m. ET

Nolan Arenado ($5,700)
Tommy Edman ($5,100)
Yadier Molina ($3,700)
Tyler O’Neill ($3,400)

The St. Louis Cardinals have lost three straight games, but could find themselves back in the win column on Thursday night. The Cardinals will go up against Pirates starting pitcher Chad Kuhl, who has struggled on the road this season. The 28-year-old is 0-3 with an ERA of 7.45 in five starts.

Yadier Molina is a phenomenal option for this stack as he’s hitting .467 with 2 HRs and 3 RBI in 15 at-bats. The future Hall of Fame catcher is currently valued at $3,700 in DFS, which is a good value for this small slate.
