We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Saturday’s main slate.

We have a 16-game schedule in the majors Saturday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 6 games starting at 7:15 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, July 10th.

Reds vs. Brewers, 7:15 p.m. ET

Willy Adames ($4,900)
Avisail Garcia ($4,900)
Omar Narvaez ($4,500)
Jace Peterson ($3,700)

On paper, this game seems to be a good pitching matchup between Reds starter Vladimir Gutierrez and Brewers starter Freddy Peralta. However, the better pitcher is Peralta, meaning our first team stack is with the Brewers.

Gutierrez has solid stats with a 4-3 record and 4.67 ERA on the season, but his ERA on the road is 4.00 in five starts. The 25-year-old starter is not having success against right-handed pitchers, allowing them to hit .266 with 5 HRs at the plate. Brewers catcher Omar Narvaez is a solid option for the Brewers stack as he’s hitting .320/.409/.494 with 7 HRs and 23 RBI. He is not a right-handed hitter, but remains a good value play that is averaging 6.6 FPPG this season.

Angels vs. Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET

Shohei Ohtani ($6,000)
Jared Walsh ($5,300)
Jose Iglesias ($4,000)
David Fletcher ($2,800)

Mariners pitcher Chris Flexen has a perplexing stat line this season with a 7-3 record and 3.80 ERA. On the surface, you would say that he’s been one of the better pitchers in the AL. But he’s been getting hit by right-handed hitters with a .269 average and a .284 average by left-handed hitters.

The Angels should be able to put the ball in play against Flexen, but will they turn those hits into runs? One player who can help answer that question is Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani hit his 33rd HR against the Mariners on Friday night. The two-way superstar is the highest valued OF in DFS at $6,000 for the main slate.

Phillies vs. Red Sox, 4:05 p.m. ET

Bryce Harper ($5,600)
J.T. Realmuto ($4,100)
Jean Segura ($3,500)
Andrew McCutchen ($3,300)

Our last DFS team stack will be the Phillies, who are looking to bounce back from an 11-5 defeat to the Red Sox Friday night. The Phillies have been scoring a good amount of runs this week and should be able to do some damage against Red Sox starter Martin Perez. He has struggled at home this season with a 3-3 record, 5.66 ERA, and .322 batting average in 10 starts.

Phillies left fielder Andrew McCutchen is a quality, cheap value play in DFS. He’s hitting .295 with 7 HRs and 18 RBI against southpaws this season. The veteran outfielder is averaging 12 FPPG in his last five games.
