Every MLB team is scheduled to take the field on Sunday, August 8th with 10 games on the DraftKings main slate of games. With so many games to choose from, DFS players have plenty of money-making opportunities.

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 8th.

Rays vs. Orioles, 1:05 p.m. ET

Brandon Lowe ($5,600)
Austin Meadows ($5,300)
Nelson Cruz ($5,200)

Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles has the highest run total of the day, and the Rays are set up for success in this spot. They are going up against Baltimore starter Jorge Lopez, who will enter with a 5.91 ERA over a 22-start sample size in addition to a 3-12 record. Tampa Bay scored double-digit runs each of the first two games of this series, and they should have another big day at the plate.

Pirates vs. Reds, 1:10 p.m. ET

Jesse Winker ($5,900)
Joey Votto ($5,800)
Mike Moustakas ($5,700)

The Cincinnati Reds have have been on fire in recent weeks, and a big reason for their success came offensively. Cincinnati reached double-digit runs two games in a row and scored at least five runs in 13 of their last 15 games. They’ve had a ton of success at the plate against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and this offense is showing no signs of slowing down.

Nationals vs. Braves, 1:20 p.m. ET

Austin Riley ($5,100)
Ozzie Albies ($4,900)
Dansby Swanson ($4,600)

Washington Nationals starter Patrick Corbin has struggled this season, and he will enter Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Braves with a 5.74 ERA and 6-10 record in 21 starts this season. He allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts, and the Braves scored at least four runs in four consecutive games until Saturday’s 3-2 loss. Look for this offense to bounce back this afternoon.
