We have a 15-game schedule in the majors on Saturday, 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 7:15 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 3rd.

Dodgers vs. Nationals, 7:15 p.m. ET

Max Muncy ($5,600)
Will Smith ($4,000)
Cody Bellinger ($3,700)

Our first team stack play for tonight’s main slate will be the Los Angeles Dodgers, who will be going up against Washington Nationals relief pitcher Paolo Espino. He will be making another spot start after his last outing against the New York Mets, where he only gave up 5 hits but had 3 strikeouts in 5.0 IP.

This season, the 34-year-old has done a tremendous job at home with an ERA of 1.16 and .205 opponents batting average in eight starts. However, he hasn’t faced a lineup like the Dodgers, who is averaging 5.42 runs in their last seven games. Max Muncy is a great option for this stack, who has a hit in six games and four home runs. The power-hitting infielder is averaging 15.3 FPPG over that period of time.

Cardinals vs. Rockies, 9:10 p.m. ET

Tommy Edman ($4,500)
Yadier Molina ($4,300)
Dylan Carlson ($3,700)

The St. Louis Cardinals are going to be our second stack play in as many days with them playing at Coors Field against the Colorado Rockies. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 12, which is the highest on the board.

The Cardinals’ offense, which has scored 11 runs in the first two games of this series, should be able to produce some runs against Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland. Freeland has struggled immensely this season with a 1-2 record and 6.54 ERA. The 28-year-old has not had much success at Coors Field, sporting a 6.59 ERA and .379 opponents batting average. Future Hall of Fame catcher Yadier Molina should be in this stack as he’s hitting .500 in 6 career at-bats against Freeland. He’s coming off a 31 fantasy point performance on Friday, where he went 3-for-5 at the plate with a HR.

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

Mitch Haniger ($4,700)
Kyle Seager ($4,100)
J.P. Crawford ($3,700)

To wrap-up our Saturday’s main team stack, we are going to go with the Seattle Mariners, who have been playing solid baseball as of late and should be able to do some damage against Texas Rangers starting pitcher Jordan Lyles.

The 30-year-old Lyles has a 3-5 record and 5.12 ERA in 16 games (15 starts) this year for the Rangers. The veteran pitcher has not pitched well on the road, with his ERA at 5.10 in only eight starts. Right-handed hitters have had a ton of success against Lyles, slugging .320 with 2 HRs. Even though he isn’t a right-handed hitter, Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford is still being undervalued in DFS at $3,700. He currently has a 17-game hitting streak and is averaging 9.6 FPPG over that time.
