Stacking has been a popular way to bring down tournaments, and some stacks are even cash game viable. We offer three free top stacks of the night and will provide stacks in a wide range of price tags. We do want to make it known that stacks in Colorado are often fairly obvious and popular stacks. We don't feel the need to break down Colorado stacks and will be more focused on other stacking options. Unless we are struggling to find three others, Colorado stacks will be a top choice but not broken down. We tend to look at park factors, Vegas numbers, starting pitcher and bullpen numbers, and various offensive stats. Feel free to shoot us questions on Twitter at @BrentHeiden1, @JGuilbault11, and @dfcafe.

The Boston Red Sox come into tonight's slate with a massive projected team total of 5.6 runs and they are certain to be a popular stack as they face off against John Lamb and they Angels. Lamb hasn't spent a lot of time in the Majors since 2016, pitching just 8.1 innings, but prior to that he had posted a 6.17 ERA across 24 starts. His numbers are a little skewed, because of the small sample, but we will certainly want to attack him tonight. He doesn't have much of a pitch arsenal, hurling a 92 MPH four-seam fastball, a cutter, a curveball, and a changeup, but his fastball is getting absolutely blasted this season, as he is allowing a .444 wOBA and .500 ISO on it. HIs cutter is also getting hit hard, as opponents are posting a .214 ISO and 40% HCR against the pitch, but again, we are still dealing with a little bit of a small sample size. Obviously, Mookie Betts (.410 wOBA, .263 ISO) is a great place to start in the leadoff spot and he owns a .361 wOBA against Lamb's four-seam fastball but we can also look at JD Martinez (.370 ISO, .473 wOBA) as he has posted a .727 ISO and .778 wOBA against it. Xander Bogaerts (.127 ISO, .339 wOBA) has been hitting left-handed pitchers a little better this season, posting a .170 ISO and .362 wOBA against them, and owns a .377 wOBA and .275 ISO against Lamb's fastball, while Mitch Moreland (.142 ISO, .317 wOBA) is an intriguing option from the left side of the plate. Moreland's numbers against left-handed pitching this season look much better than last year, with a .208 ISO and .337 wOBA, and he has posted a .513 xwOBA and 53.57% HCR against Lamb's fastball. Sandy Leon (.120 ISO, .293 wOBA) has some pretty putrid numbers against southpaws overall but he does own a .458 wOBA and .316 ISO against cutters which makes him an interesting option behind the dish tonight.

Happy Matt Harvey Day everyone! While Matt Harvey hasn't been a complete disaster in a Reds uniform, he is still someone I want to attack in this spot tonight. Harvey has escaped his last two games with just five earned runs allowed total, but has allowed at least four earned in three of his last five games, and he struggles immensely with left-handed hitters. The Braves have a heap of left-handed hitters to choose from, making them a great stack here. Harvey's most problematic pitches are this four-seam fastball, a pitch that he is throwing 35% of the time, his sinker, and his changeup. He is allowing a .513 ISO and .513 wOBA to left-handed hitters on his four-seam fastball, a .200 ISO and .408 wOBA on his sinker, and a .231 ISO and .352 wOBA on his changeup. We will want to focus on the Atlanta hitters that excel against those pitches, mostly, although any of the lefties in that lineup are viable options. Ender Inciarte (.119 ISO, .328 wOBA) is projected to bat leadoff, and while he doesn't have a lot of power, he does own a .320 wOBA against Harvey's four-seam fastball and a .353 wOBA against his sinker. He is a stolen base threat, as well, making him an interesting option here. Ozzie Albies (.195 ISO, .329 wOBA) is a fine option in the two-hole that owns a .448 wOBA and .280 ISO against sinkers and a massive .506 ISO against Harvey's four-seam fastball, while Freddie Freeman (.261 ISO, .410 wOBA) owns a .434 wOBA and .359 ISO against Harvey's four-seam fastball. He also rakes against sinkers, posting a .440 wOBA and .263 ISO against them, and changeups with a .387 wOBA and .221 ISO. Nick Markakis (.116 ISO, .334 wOBA) is also excellent against changeups, posting a .430 wOBA and .255 ISO against the pitch, but is also an excellent sinker ball hitter. Johan Camargo (.128 ISO, .315 wOBA) completely rakes against Harvey's four-seam fastball, posting a .404 wOBA and .167 ISO against the pitch, and you can round out the stack with either of the catchers that makes the lineup, although Harvey has been pretty solid against right-handed hitters.

With a couple of pricier stacks on the board already tonight, it is time to take a look at a cheaper option that we can use to get some of these higher priced bats in our lineups and that is the San Francisco Giants as they take on Chad Bettis. On the surface, Bettis doesn't look like a terrible pitcher, but he has surrendered at least five earned runs in his last five starts dating back to May 28th. It should be noted that all but one of those starts came in Coors but he has still had his struggles at times on the road this season. His lack of strikeouts, as evidenced by his 17.2% strikeout rate this season, negates the biggest issue this Giants team has, and he has really struggled against right-handed hitters in his career. Alen Hanson (.185 ISO, .303 wOBA) has posted an impressive .355 ISO and .434 wOBA against right-handed pitching this season, while Buster Posey (.111 ISO, .340 wOBA) has obliterated Bettis' primary pitch, a 90 MPH four-seam fastball, posting a .257 ISO and .474 wOBA against it. Andrew McCutchen (.157 ISO, .330 wOBA) has been turning things around this month, with a .374 wOBA and .256 ISO in June, and owns a massive .333 ISO and .447 wOBA against Bettis' four-seam fastball. While I prefer the right-handed hitters here, it is tough to overlook Brandon Belt (.256 ISO, .387 wOBA) as he owns a .436 wOBA and .308 ISO against Bettis' four-seam fastball, and Brandon Crawford (.160 ISO, .326 wOBA) as he owns a .320 ISO and .465 wOBA against it. Both Pablo Sandoval (.174 ISO, .328 wOBA) and Joe Panik (.154 ISO, .336 wOBA) are in consideration from the left side of the plate, as well, with Sandoval posting a .375 ISO and Panik posting a .273 ISO and 98.39% contact rate against Bettis' four-seam fastball. Don't overlook Gorkys Hernandez (.119 ISO, .323 wOBA) as he has posted a solid .195 ISO and .353 wOBA against right-handed pitching this season and owns a .463 wOBA and .333 ISO against the fastball.
