Best MLB team stacks for DFS on Sunday, July 4th

We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Sunday’s Independence Day slate.

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

All 30 MLB teams are scheduled to take the field on Independence Day featuring 16 total games due to a doubleheader between the New York Mets and New York Yankees. The main slate on DraftKings will showcase nine games.

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 Sunday, July 4th.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates, 1:05 p.m. ET

Christian Yelich ($5,800)
Luis Urias ($5,300)
Omar Narvaez ($4,800)

Milwaukee is on a roll right now with an 11-game winning streak, and their offense has been a big reason for the success. The Brewers scored seven or more runs in each of their last four games, and their offensive breakthrough should continue. They will go up against Tyler Anderson on the mound, and he has a 4.75 ERA with a 3-8 record this season. The most expensive Brewers hitters are worth the price in this stack.

Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals, 2:10 p.m. ET

Nelson Cruz ($5,600)
Jorge Polanco ($4,200)
Brent Rooker ($4,100)

The Twins have a great matchup going up against Royals starter Brad Keller. Through 17 starts, he has a 6.67 ERA and really struggled in June. In each of his last five starts, Keller allowed at least four runs and never pitched more than 5.1 innings in that stretch. Minnesota has struggled this season, and they are looking to avoid a six-game losing streak on Sunday. Their top hitters have a good chance at putting the Twins in position for a win.

San Diego Padres vs. Philadelphia Phillies 1:05 p.m. ET

Bryce Harper ($5,300)
Rhys Hoskins ($5,000)
J.T. Realmuto ($4,000)

The Phillies will also see an advantageous matchup against the opposing starting pitcher. The Padres will start with Blake Snell on the mound, and he will enter with a 5.29 ERA and a 3-3 record through 15 starts. Philadelphia will go for a sweep, which would be an impressive feat against this Padres team. The Phillies should do enough offensively to make this a reality.
