Every MLB team is scheduled to take the field on Sunday, August 15th, and nine games will be featured on the DraftKings main slate for DFS bettors ready to enter their lineup.
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, August 15th.
Orioles vs. Red Sox, 1:10 p.m. ET
Rafael Devers ($5,600)
Xander Bogaerts ($5,200)
J.D. Martinez ($5,000)
DraftKings Sportsbook is giving the Boston Red Sox the highest team run total at 6.5 heading into their game against the Baltimore Orioles. The Red Sox top sluggers will go up against Baltimore starter Keegan Akin, who has really struggled this season. In 16 appearances with nine starts, he has an 0-6 record with an 8.23 ERA. Boston should be aggressive at the plate and is set up for a big day.
Brewers vs. Pirates, 1:05 p.m.
Christian Yelich ($5,900)
Eduardo Escobar ($5,800)
Willy Adames ($5,400)
The Milwaukee Brewers have continued their hot start following the All-Star Break at the plate, and they are set up for another solid performance in Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Milwaukee scored 10 runs combined in Saturday’s doubleheader, and the Brewers combined for 27 runs the previous two games against the Chicago Cubs. Pirates starter Dillon Peters has just one MLB start the past two seasons.
Rays vs. Twins, 2:10 p.m. ET
Brandon Lowe ($4,800)
Wander Franco ($4,700)
Nelson Cruz ($4,700)
The Tampa Bay Rays’ top hitters are very cheap, and oddsmakers at DraftKings Sportsbook are expecting a big day from this lineup on Sunday in their game against the Minnesota Twins. Tampa Bay was shut out on Saturday but scored at least eight runs the seven previous games leading up to that point. The Rays will go up against Charlie Barnes, who has a 6.08 ERA this season in a very limited sample size with three appearances including two starts.
