The following Spotlight Stacks were selected by Awesemo.com’s Director of Content Josh Engleman.
CHC (vs. CLE)
The Cubs are my #1 stack on DraftKings and are tied for 3rd on FanDuel. I’m on the entire lineup, but the focus is on the top five. Zobrist, Bryant, Rizzo are great on both sites. I’ll have more Contreras on DraftKings because of the need for a catcher, but he’s playable on FanDuel. Addison Russell absorbs most of Contreras’ FD ownership. I’ll even have some Schwarber, Baez and Hayward. Regardless of changes to the lineup throughout the day, the Cubs will be one of my main stacks.
NYY (@ TEX)
It’s the chalk play, but for good reason. The Yankees implied total is bonkers. Stanton is the jewel of the lineup, but Gardner, Judge, Gregorious and Sanchez are right there with him. Neil Walker has a bargain price on FanDuel, while Miguel Andujar is night third base play on DraftKings. They’ll probably be the most popular stack, but that won’t stop me from having exposure.
PIT (@ CIN)
Back to the well one more time with these Pirates. They’re my number one stack on FanDuel. It’s just hard to avoid the second highest implied total and a matchup with Homer Bailey. The first five guys are great on both sites (Harrison, Polanco, Cervelli, Bell and Dickerson), but I’ll have a bunch of Colin Moran, Austin Meadows and Jordy Mercer as well. I don’t love those last three as much on DraftKings, particularly Meadows. His price is just too high for a guy hitting seventh.
