MLB DFS picks today: The best teams to stack at DraftKings for the main board on Sunday, June 12

Today we have a full 15 game slate for the MLB and as always there are plenty of team stacks that can make you money in DraftKings Daily Fantasy.

Sometimes, with an additional matchup in the MLB game roster, we have the opportunity to include multiple players from the same team in our DFS rosters. You can learn more about the MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB roster on Sunday, June 12.

braves vs. Pirates, 1:35 p.m. ET

Ronald Acuna Jr. ($6,000)
Dansby Swanson ($5,300)
Ozzie Albies ($5,000)
Marcell Ozuna ($4,300)

The red-hot Atlanta Braves are yet to lose in the month of June and will look to take their league-best winning streak to 11 when they take on the Pittsburgh Pirates this afternoon. The reigning champions will face Pirates starter Jose Quintana, who has given up at least five hits and two earned runs in his last four starts.

That presents another great opportunity for Acuña to get out, as he should be an automatic staple for their lineup right now. The star outfielder fired a solo shot and scored two runs to earn 18 fantasy points in yesterday’s 10-4 victory. Swanson and Albies also delivered double-digit fantasy points in yesterday’s game and will once again be solid additions along with Acuna. Meanwhile, Ozuna has a career batting average of .500 for him against Quintana and could serve as a great asset today.

Red Sox vs. Mariners, 4:10 p.m. ET

Raphael Devers ($5,400)
Trevor’s Story ($5,300)
Xander Bogaerts ($4,800)
Alex Verdugo ($3,800)

The Boston Red Sox wrap up their nine-game West Coast road trip this afternoon when they take on the Seattle Mariners in the final of that series. The M’s will start Robbie Ray, who has given up at least three earned runs in each of his last five starts.

Averaging 9.8 fantasy points per start, Devers appears once at the top of this list. He beat the DFS users 20 yesterday when he hit a two-run homer in the team’s 7-6 loss. Story has a favorable matchup against Ray, posting a .290 career batting average with four home runs against the Seattle left-hander. Bogaerts and Verdugo can be unpredictable as fantasy prospects, but when they’re hot, they can give you double-digit points with ease.

parents vs. Rockies, 4:10 p.m. ET

Manny Machado ($5,200)
Jake Cronenworth (4,700)
Jurickson Profar ($3,400)
Eric Hosmer ($2,600)

The San Diego Padres are just a half-game out of first place in the NL West standings and will look to potentially take first place in the division this afternoon when they wrap up their four-game series against the Colorado Rockies.

After hitting a home run in Thursday’s opener, Machado has stayed in check by going 0-8 in the last two games of the series. Averaging 9.7 fantasy points per game, there’s a good chance he’ll snap out of this mini-slump this afternoon. Cronenworth and Profar are averaging a little over seven fantasy points per game and have the potential to be great value-adds in today’s series finale. Ditto for Hosmer, who has a .333 batting average in 27 at-bats against Rockies starter German Marquez.
