Saturday’s MLB slate features several appetizing matchups for DFS bettors, with high-powered offenses like the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros facing poor defensive opposition.
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 24th.
Dodgers vs. Rockies, 9:10 ET
Chris Taylor, $5,700
Justin Turner, $5,600
AJ Pollock, $4,000
Taylor and Turner have been studs for Los Angeles this season and should continue to produce while some of the team’s other pieces are out. Pollock has struggled of late, but had a big game against the Rockies last week with 19 fantasy points.
Astros vs. Rangers, 7:10 ET
Jose Altuve, $5,400
Yuli Gurriel, $4,800
Carlos Correa, $4,800
The Rangers are expected to send Kyle Gibson to the mound, who has been solid this season and is a trade candidate. However, the Astros are one of the best offenses in baseball and have been successful against Texas. Correa is in a slump, but this is a good chance for him to break out of it. Altuve and Gurriel have been stars this season.
Nationals vs. Orioles, 6:35 ET
Juan Soto, $6,000
Trea Turner, $6,000
Alcides Escobar, $3,600
The Orioles are expected to send Matt Harvey to the mound against the Nationals, which is great news for bettors taking Washington players in DFS lineups. Harvey has a 7.13 ERA this season and a 8.01 ERA in his last seven games. Soto and Turner are likely to have big games as they continue to push the Nationals towards .500 and Escobar recently had two monster fantasy games against the Marlins and Padres.
