TOR (@ TEX)
The Blue Jays have one of the highest implied totals on the slate, and have a line-up primed with right handed hitting to take advantage of their match-up with Rangers’ lefty Matt Moore. There are 5 guys on FanDuel (6 on Draftkings!) with a rating of B/A. Neither of those groups include Donaldson (A/E on FD, A/B on DK) or Smoak (A/E on FD, A/C on DK). There are plenty of options for you to build the perfect Jays stack.
TEX (vs. TOR)
Not to be outdone, the Rangers are also set-up to be stacked. Led by Spotlight Hitter Shin-soo Choo, Texas boasts 5 A’s in the Value column on DraftKings (4 on FanDuel), while also having Joey Gallo (A/B) ready to mash. This game has a monster implied total, which is just what you want to see when trying to build a stack.
CIN (@ PIT) [DK only]
Those of you that play on DraftKings have an interesting stack in-play, with the Reds showing 4 A’s and 3 B’s in the Value column. While they might not have the highest ceiling, they’re an interesting option if you need to save money while paying up for pitching.
HOU (vs. SD) [FD only]
The Reds aren’t the only site specific stack we’re looking at, as the Astros have a terrifying amount of top-end hitting on display. If you’re saving some money with your pitcher, look to the top of the Astros line-up. Springer (A), Altuve (A), Bregman (B), Correa (B) and Reddick (B) are all premium bats with the highest implied total of the night. They may not be the most cost effective group, but no one else matches their upside.
