4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 7/3/19
We have quite the platter of great hitting matchups tonight, with over half of tonight's 28 teams exceeding a 4.70 implied total and six going up above 5.70. Coors Field will be especially hard to fade, as the Houston Astros and Colorado Rockies combine for a truly massive 14.5 over/under. Needless to say, you're probably going to want some exposure there, but we shouldn't write off some other tempting stacks on this packed slate.
Each day here on numberFire, we'll go through four offenses ripe for the stacking. They could have a great matchup, be in a great park, or just have a lot of quality sticks in the lineup, but these are the offenses primed for big days that you may want a piece of.
Premium members can use our stacking feature to customize their stacks within their optimal lineups for the day, choosing the team you want to stack and how many players you want to include. You can also check out our hitting heat map, which provides an illustration of which offenses have the best combination of matchup and potency.
Now, let's get to the stacks. As usual, we will not include today's game at Coors Field in these recommendations. You already know that you want bats at Coors when you can afford them, and you don't need us to tell you. Here are the other teams you should be targeting in daily fantasy baseball today.
Los Angeles Angels
The Los Angeles Angels will benefit from another evening at Globe Life Park, where we're expecting yet another typical hot and humid Texas night. They certainly have the right matchup to capitalize, taking on mediocre right-hander Ariel Jurado.
While Jurado's numbers aren't quite as egregious as last season, a 4.74 SIERA and 16.5% strikeout rate still isn't anything special, and he's allowing a lot of hard hits again (40.7%). Hard contact combined with a lack of strikeouts is a dangerous game to play, particularly when we're talking about a such positive hitting conditions.
But Jurado is also really struggling versus left-handed batters again this season (5.50 xFIP), so that means a boost for Shohei Ohtani ($3,900) and Kole Calhoun ($3,300), and hopefully Justin Bour ($2,800) is in the lineup, too.
