MLB has provided us with an 11-game schedule to kick off the week, meaning there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS.
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 Monday, June 28.
Orioles vs. Astros, 8:10 p.m. ET
Jose Altuve ($5,800)
Michael Brantley ($4,300)
Yuli Gurriel ($5,200)
This matchup is a total no-brainer, and you could honestly probably pick any three batters up or down in the Astros lineup. Houston currently boasts the top offense in baseball with an average sitting close to .280.
The Orioles will be throwing Thomas Eshelman on the bump, which hasn’t been a good thing for the birds in the past. His ERA has skyrocketed to above 7 this season, though he’s only made two starts. His most recent start came against this Astros squad and they teed off on him, scraping across eight hits and six earned runs over Eshelman’s four innings of work.
Yankees vs. Angels, 7:05 p.m. ET
DJ LeMahieu ($5,500)
Aaron Judge ($5,300)
Gary Sanchez ($4,700)
The Yankees’ offense has woken up in the last week or so, producing 5.6 runs per game (all at home) until a bit of a dip when they hit the road over the weekend. They’ll be trying to find that offensive groove again now that they’re leaving Boston.
They’ll have a good chance to do it too, taking on Dylan Bundy who has struggled mightily this season. His record is a pitiful 1-7 with a near 7.00 ERA. In his last seven starts he’s gone more than four innings just twice and he’s given up 32 runs and nine home runs in that time. Against a power-heavy lineup, like the Yanks have, that HR number could easily cross into double digits tonight.
White Sox vs. Twins, 7:10 p.m. ET
Tim Anderson ($5,4200)
Brain Goodwin ($2,900)
Yoan Moncada ($4,500)
While the trends these two teams are on would tell you to bank on the Twins, there’s reason to believe in the White Sox to get back on track tonight. Chicago has won five out of six games these two sides have played this season, scoring an average of 8.8 runs in each victory.
Twins projected pitcher Kenta Maeda has faced the South Siders twice this season, giving up eight hits, two home runs and three earned runs over nine innings pitched. That’s got to give bettors faith that the Sox will be able to get to the Minnesota bullpen quick, even if Madea is having a solid night.
