We have a good 13-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 7 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 Thursday, July 1st.

Cardinals vs. Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET

Nolan Arenado ($5,500)
Paul Goldschmidt ($4,500)
Dylan Carlson ($3,800)

The St. Louis Cardinals will be our first team stack play as they travel out to the Mile High City to play the Colorado Rockies. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 11, which doesn’t come as a surprise since they are playing at Coors Field. St. Louis will be facing Rockies pitcher Antonio Senzatela, who is 2-7 with a 4.76 ERA. However, he’s pitched better at home with a 3.91, but opponents are still hitting .267.

Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is a fantastic option for this stack as he’s hitting .294 with a home run and 7 RBI in 17 career at-bats against Senzatela. You can also add OF Dylan Carlson, who has a four-game hitting streak while averaging 8.0 FPPG. He’s only $3,800, which is a good value play in DFS overall.

Dodgers vs. Nationals, 7:05 p.m. ET

Mookie Betts ($5,600)
Justin Turner ($5,300)
Max Muncy ($5,300)

Another game where we could see a good amount of runs scored is between the Los Angeles and Washington Nationals. The Nationals’ offense has been on another level recently, averaging 8 runs in their last four games. But they will be going up against an equally hot Dodgers team, who has won five straight games and could hit around Nats starter Patrick Corbin.

Corbin pitched better last month with a 3.82 ERA in five starts, but he still owns a 5.33 ERA overall. The southpaw has a winning record in his home starts (5-2), but has an ERA of 4.40. This season, right-handed hitters are slugging .285 with 15 HRs against Corbin. With that in mind, Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner is a must-play. He is hitting .320 with 2 HRs and 4 RBI in 25 career at-bats against Corbin.

Brewers vs. Pirates, 7:05 p.m. ET

Christian Yelich ($5,000)
Luis Urias ($4,800)
Wily Adames ($4,400)

Last but not least, we had to get the Milwaukee Brewers into our team stacks for Thursday’s main slate. The Brew Crew pulled off an impressive feat Wednesday afternoon against the Chicago Cubs. Milwaukee was down 7-0 after the top of the first inning and scored 15 unanswered runs to sweep the Cubs. The Brewers have won eight consecutive games and are averaging 7.4 runs per game over that time.

They’ll go on the road to face Pirates pitcher Wil Crowe, who has a 1-4 record and 6.50 ERA this season. The 26-year-old Crowe has struggled at home with a 6.19 ERA and .277 opponents batting average. Even though Yelich isn’t a right-handed hitter, which Crowe has not done well against this season, the All-Star outfielder is hitting .261 against right-handed pitchers in 2021.
