Monday is a bit of a slow day in the MLB world, with just nine games, including a doubleheader, on the docket to start the week. Still, there should be a few good opportunities out there to load your DFS lineup with guys from one team.
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, July 26th.
New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves, 5:10 p.m.
Brandon Nimmo ($12, 300)
Michael Conforto ($8,500)
Pete Alonso ($15,300)
You won’t typically find the Mets in one of these stacks, since they’re a team known far more for their arms than their bats. But the guys at the top of their lineup are solid and should be looked at heavily in this featured game on DraftKings.
The Mets have the pitching advantage in this one too, and the top the of NY lineup will look to get off to a hot start against Kyle Muller, who comes into this one with a 1-3 record on the season, including a loss to the Mets just a few weeks ago where he only went four innings. The Mets are also dominant at Citi Field, going 30-15 this season.
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox, 7:10 p.m.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. ($6,000)
Marcus Semien ($5,300)
Bo Bichette ($5,200)
You can get all three of these guys in your lineup and the most any one of them will cost is $6,000, which seems like a bargain considering the offensive production of Toronto. They’ll be taking on Nick Pivetta, who they’ve done well against in three appearances this season. During those outings, Pivetta has gone a combined total of 16.2 innings while allowing 24 hits and 15 runs, an average of five runs per start against the Jays.
Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners, 10:10 p.m. EST
Michael Brantley ($3,100)
Yordan Alvarez ($5,400)
Carlos Correra ($4,500)
The Mariners are having a bit of a resurgence over the last month or so, but the Astros offense Is one of the best in baseball for a reason. Through seven games this season, Houston is scoring an average of nearly four runs per game against Seattle. Tonight, the M’s don’t have a starting pitcher announced, so it makes it a bit tougher to know for sure just how productive these three will be in the lineup. Still, with only nine games to pick from on the card tonight and not a lot of overwhelmingly obvious matchups, it can’t hurt to roll with the heart of one of the best lineups in baseball against an unknown pitcher. Especially when you can get all of them for so cheap in your DFS play.
