We have a 14-game schedule in the majors on Friday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 13 games starting at 7:05 p.m. ET.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.

Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Friday, June 11th.

Astros vs. Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET

Jose Altuve ($5,400)
Yordan Alvarez ($4,200)
Michael Brantley ($3,800)

We’ve featured the Houston Astros a lot this week when it comes to best DFS team stacks because they’ve received a lot of favorable matchups. That will continue today as they will head to Target Field to play the Minnesota Twins at 8:10 p.m. ET. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 11, which makes sense given who the starter is for the Twins.

Houston is coming off a high-scoring three-game series against the Boston Red Sox, when they averaged 7.6 runs per game. They might be able to duplicate that against Twins starter Matt Shoemaker. The 34-year-old pitcher has struggled mightily this season and it came to a head in his last start, where he gave up 9 runs (8 earned runs) in the first inning against the Kansas City Royals. Shoemaker has a 6.75 ERA and .292 opponents batting average in 5 home starts this season. Altuve is the headliner of this team stack as he’s hitting .300 with 2 HRs and 4 RBI in 20 at-bats against Shoemaker.

Rockies vs. Reds, 7:10 p.m. ET

Jesse Winker ($5,500)
Nick Castellanos ($4,800)
Tucker Barnhart ($3,600)

Another game where we could see offense galore on Friday night is between the Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds at 7:10 p.m. ET. The Reds boasts one of the best offenses in the majors, averaging 4.87 runs per game this season. However, at home, they are scoring 5.72 runs per game, which is the second-best in MLB behind the Rockies.

The Reds will go up against Kyle Freeland, who is 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA in only three starts this season. The Rockies starting pitcher just returned off of the injured list on May 25 from a shoulder strain. But through three starts, he’s been getting rocked by both right and left handed hitters, who are slugging .500 and .342 at the plate.

Angels vs. Diamondbacks, 9:40 p.m. ET

Anthony Rendon ($4,400)
Justin Upton ($4,000)
Max Stassi ($3,100)

For our final team stack, we are going to head out west as the Los Angeles Angels will take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Angels will have Shohei Ohtani on the mound and will try to give the Diamondbacks their eighth straight loss. Los Angeles should be able to put up runs on Arizona starter Merrill Kelly.

The 32-year-old Kelly is 2-6 with an ERA of 5.12 in 12 outings this season. However, he’s been a pitcher at home with a 3.82 ERA and opponents hitting .267. But right-handed hitters are crushing Kelly this season, slashing .291/.327/.496 with 7 HRs and 24 RBI. Angels catcher Max Stassi is a great value play in DFS at a $3300 value. He has recorded at least two hits in three straight games for the Halos and is hitting .346 with 4 HRs, 8 RBI, and averaging 7.8 DKFP.
