Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Stacks for 4/29/22! In this article, I’ll break down by top overall stacks for today’s main slate. Last year was an extremely big year for the Karma team in MLB, and we are looking to continue that success in 2022. I will be providing Core Plays for every main slate this season — you can gain access to the Core Plays as well as our premium discord here. You can also try out the Core Plays package with a $5 daily pass. Let’s get to the stacks…
New York Yankees
It’s a Coors Field slate, but I try to avoid the obvious and focus on my favorite non-Coors stacks which isn’t hard on a 13 game slate. We have tons of options to choose from, and I’ll start with the Yankees once again. Kris Bubic is a left-handed pitcher that allows above-average power and hard-hits — a recipe for disaster against this Yankees lineup. They’re firing on all cylinders over the last week and we even get some winds blowing out to center as well. I would be focusing on the power righties to start, but then I would want the lefties in Anthony Rizzo and Joey Gallo to complete my stack, The ownership of a full five-man with lefty on lefty match-ups is always lower owned than the overall ownership of just Aaron Judge or Giancarlo Stanton and they have the highest non-Coors team total on the board.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis matches up very well with Madison Bumgarner tonight. Bumgarner hasn’t been the same since leaving San Francisco and he struggles mightily with allowing right-handed power. That’s bad news against the Cardinals who have a ton of quality right-handed batters. Tyler O’Neill, Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado all own an ISO above .300 over the last two seasons vs left-handed pitching. That’s not even to mention guys like Albert Pujols and Tommy Edman that have strong numbers in the split as well. Vegas loves the Cardinals today and I think they will end up as my favorite non-Coors stack on Friday night.
San Francisco Giants
Aaron Sanchez is a guy I’ve loved to stack against in recent seasons, because he rarely strikes batters out. Balls will be put into play against him — and he has a bad bullpen behind him. If San Francisco can knock him out of the game early, and get into the bullpen, this could be a slate-breaking spot. Given that’s what I’m chasing, I wouldn’t be focused on one side of the plate here and would instead opt for the full five-man stack on DraftKings.
