We have a full 15-game schedule in the majors Friday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 15 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 Friday, June 4th.
Matt Olson ($5,300)
Mark Canha ($4,900)
Jed Lowrie ($4,000)
Our first team stack for tonight’s main slate will be the Oakland Athletics, who are opening up a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total set at 11, which is not farfetched in the Mile High City. The Athletics will be going up against Rockies starter Jon Gray, who is 4-5 with an ERA of 3.71 this season. He has pitched at home this season with a 2.36 ERA, but has given up 4 HRs and .152 batting avg to opponents.
Mark Canha is a nice add to this three-player stack as he has done well against right-handed pitching this season. The 32-year-old outfielder is slashing .260/.391/.443 with 6 HRs and 13 RBI in 161 plate appearances. Overall, he is hitting .250 with 10 HRs, 19 RBI, and averaging 8.9 fantasy points per game.
Reds vs. Cardinals, 8:15 p.m. ET
Nolan Arenado ($4,800)
Tommy Edman ($4,400)
Tyler O’Neill ($4,200)
This is a no-brainer pick as we are going to choose the St. Louis Cardinals for our second team stack. The Cardinals will be going up against Reds starting pitcher Luis Castillo, who has been downright awful this season. Castillo has a record of 1-8 and a rising ERA of 7.22 through 11 starts. The 28-year-old is getting crushed at home with a 6.07 ERA in six starts and allowing opponents to hit .309.
Cardinals outfielder Tyler O’Neill is a smart value play for this stack as he has an 11-game hitting streak. Over the course of hit streak, O’Neill has had seven double-digits performances in DFS and has slugged 4 HRs.
J.D. Martinez ($4,900)
Rafael Devers ($4,700)
Alex Verdugo ($3,300)
To wrap up our team stack for the main slate, we are going to choose the Boston Red Sox, who begin a three-game set against the New York Yankees. The Red Sox will have Nathan Eovaldi on the mound, while the Yankees will start Michael King. Boston still has a top-5 offense, averaging 4.97 runs per game this season. The Red Sox should be able to put up some runs on Yankees starter Michael King, who is only making his second start of the season.
If you decide to go with Martinez and Devers, then Alex Verdugo is a great value play for under $4K in this team stack. The 25-year-old is hitting an outstanding .310/.385/.519 with 6 HRs and 18 RBI against right-handed pitchers this season.
