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.
New York Yankees - Team Total: 4.75
With Clayton Kershaw on the mount tonight, we are going to look at some cheaper stacks to work with. If you want to pay up for stacks, Cleveland, Houston, and Baltimore are all great options. Points-per-dollar stacks lead me to the Yankees tonight, who come in averagely priced on both sites. Dylan Covey allowed one earned run in his debut, but allowed eight baserunners in 5.1 innings. He also only struck out one. Covey's minor league numbers were very pedestrian, with low strikeout numbers, and a below average walk rate. The one thing that looks to be on his side is the groundball rate. With the way the Yankees offense is playing right now, and the ballpark tied into it, it is hard for me to predict Covey with another quality outing. New York offers up the fourth highest wOBA against right-handed pitching so far this season, and the ISO numbers are already far better than last year's. If you are on DraftKings, or want to boot Brett Gardner from the stack, Chase Headley has a .486 wOBA to start the season, with a .205 ISO. Yankees bring a good mix of power and speed to the table. Between Headley, Ellsbury, and Gardner - they have combined for 12 steals. The Yankees have the second highest team implied total at the moment. The Yankees are averaging 5.38 runs per game at home this year, which is the fourth most in baseball.
