We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Tuesday’s main slate.

We have a 15-game schedule in the majors Tuesday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 15 games starting at 7:05 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 Tuesday, August 3rd.

Red Sox vs. Tigers, 7:10 p.m. ET

Rafael Devers ($5,700)
Kike Hernandez ($4,900)
Hunter Renfoe ($3,700)

We are going to start off our team stacks with the Boston Red Sox, who desperately need a win heading into their series opener against the Detroit Tigers. The Red Sox have lost four-straight games and only averaging 2.75 runs per game. Boston will be facing Tigers starter Wily Peralta, who has pitched well this season with a 3.64 ERA. But the reliever has got lit up in this last two outings, giving up 11 earned runs and 4 home runs.

Rafael Devers is the best option for this team stack as he’s hitting .291 at the plate against right-handed pitchers this season. He also has a hit in five consecutive games (4 multi-hit games) for the BoSox and producing 10 FPPG.

Cubs vs. Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET

Trevor Story ($5,200)
Charlie Blackmon ($4,100)
Brendan Rodgers ($3,400)

Our second DFS team stack will come from the Cubs-Rockies game later tonight at Coors Field. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 11, which is the highest total on the board. The Chicago Cubs have completely blown up their roster with the trades of Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo, and Kris Bryant, making them not a great DFS option.

Therefore, we are going to go with the Rockies, who will be going up against Cubs starter Zach Davies. Davies is 6-7 with an ERA of 4.39 through 22 starts this season. The 28-year-old has not been great on the road with a 2-3 record and 4.43 ERA in 10 starts. However, Davies’ issues has been pitching at night this season, where he’s allowed 9 HRs and an ERA of 5.32. The Cubs’ starter is not really a strikeout pitcher as he depends more on fly ball and ground ball outs. On the other end of the spectrum, Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers is a great DFS value play as he’s averaging 11 FPPG in his last 11 games.

Angels vs. Rangers, 8:05 p.m. ET

Shohei Ohtani ($6,000)
David Fletcher ($4,200)
Justin Upton ($3,200)

To wrap-up our team stacks for tonight’s slate, we are going to pick the Los Angeles Angels, who will play Game 2 of their four-game set against the Texas Rangers. The Angels only put up 1 run on Monday night, but should be able to bounce back against Texas starter Jordan Lyles.

This season, Lyles has been up and down on the mound for Texas. The veteran pitcher has a 5-7 record and 5.04 ERA through 20 starts. However, he’s given up an incredible 25 HRs on the season, which is unfathomable. In three starts against the Angels, Lyles has a 10.38 ERA and allowed them to hit .375 at the plate.
