Stacking has become a prime way to take down big tournaments, as well as giving your cash game team a solid floor. We focus on opposing pitcher stats, Vegas, weather, park factors, team stats, salaries, and player stats when deciding the top three stacks of the night. I know. Shocker we look at those things. If there is a Coors game on the slate, we will mostly divert our attention elsewhere, as Coors games are the obvious stacks of the night. It doesn't need much breaking down. Be sure to check out or revamped Stack Generator and Stack features inside our Lineup Optimizer and Tools.
Seattle Mariners - Team Total: 5.5
James Shields is allowing a .425 wOBA to lefties with over a 50% flyball rate. Facing Ben Gamel, Robinson Cano, and Kyle Seager spell trouble for Shields. The three lefties here are very underpriced for the matchup, and should be fairly popular plays tonight in all formats. The right-handers are the expensive options, and Shields has some regression coming against right-handers as well, with an xwOBA of .327. Guaranteed Rate Field is another plus ballpark for hitters, and Seattle's offense has some serious upside in this one. The value aspect is another reason for why they are one of the top stacks of the night. Cano and Seager have a combined 8 HR off Shields in their career, and are both hitting over .400 against him.
