Notes:

It’s a game-stack kind of night. Most people avoid stacking two teams from the same game, but why? Both teams are allotted the same amount of outs and there is no negative correlation in rostering all eight position players from the same game. The perfect example of this can be seen in tonight's Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers matchup that has the Dodgers favored at -265 with an 11.5 O/U Courtesy of PointsBet.com.

CASH GAME STACKS

Los Angeles Dodgers (at Colorado Rockies - RHP Antonio Senzatela)

Senzatela allowed five home runs over three-game starts against the Dodgers last season. The Dodgers hit .266 as a team against Senzatela with nine earned runs off 17 hits. The Dodgers saw Senzatela three times last season and hit him in all three. Baseball is a game of muscle memory. I love the Dodgers to tee off tonight at Coors Field, a hitters paradise. The Dodgers are favored at -265 with an 11.5 O/U Courtesy of PointsBet.com.

Other Top Cash Stack: San Diego Padres (SS Fernando Tatis Jr., OF Tommy Pham, & 1B Eric Hosmer)

Top Plays: 2B Jose Altuve, SS Corey Seager & Fernando Tatis Jr.

Top Value: SS Miguel Rojas, 3B Josh Fuentes & A.J. Pollock

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Colorado Rockies (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers - RHP Trevor Bauer)

Most will be jumping on the Dodger wagon but don’t forget about these Rockies. Bauer has been knocked around before, and when he does, they usually leave him in longer than they would a “non-ace”. Bauer allowed nine total home runs last season over 73.0 innings pitched. Ready for this? Bauer last played in Coors Field on Wednesday, July 6th, 2017. In this game, he was tagged for four earned runs over 3.1 IP. He allowed all of this damage without letting up a home run. He has yet to play in Coors Field since. The Rockies are underdogs at +210 with an 11.5 O/U Courtesy of PointsBet.com.

Other Top GPP Stack: Chicago White Sox (1B Jose Abreu, 3B Yoan Moncada, C Yasmani Grandal & Tim Anderson)

Top Plays: 3B Josh Fuentes, OF Luis Robert, OF Charlie Blackmon & 1B/OF Jared Walsh

Top Value: 1B/OF Jared Walsh, C Dom Nunez, OF Raimel Tapia & SS Miguel Rojas
