We’ve got just five games on tonight’s main slate, so there are not as many teams to pick from and the highest of the 10 teams is projected for 4.8 runs. That said, somebody has to score runs. Here are my top three stacks. Hit me up on Twitter with comments or questions: @julianedlow.

1. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

The Dodgers are projected for 4.7 runs at home against RHP Edinson Volquez and the Marlins. The Dodgers are loaded with LHB and are known for hitting righties well. Volquez has allowed a .412 on-base percentage to LHB so far this season along with four homers. I’m looking to stack the lefties here, although RHB Justin Turner has had his own success against Volquez, hitting 6-for-12 with two doubles and a bomb.

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($4,400)
  • Corey Seager ($4,500)
  • Justin Turner ($3,900)
  • Joc Pederson ($3,700)
  • Yasmani Grandal ($3,800)
  • Chase Utley ($3,400)


2. SEATTLE MARINERS

Seattle is projected for the most runs on the slate at home, where they’ll square off against RHP Dylan Covey, who’s been absolutely brutal this season. Covey’s rocking a 7.98 ERA that jumps to a full nine runs on the road … basically, he’s good for a run an inning. Beware that Covey has reverse splits though, surrendering a .513 on-base percentage to RHB and allowing seven homers in 64 at-bats. LHB are still in play, too.

Players to Consider

  • Nelson Cruz ($5,000)
  • Jean Segura ($4,800)
  • Danny Valencia ($3,700)
  • Kyle Seager ($4,200)
  • Ben Gamel ($3,900)
  • Taylor Motter ($3,600)


3. BOSTON RED SOX

The Sox are projected for just over four runs on the road in Oakland, where they’ll face RHP Sonny Gray. Gray is having a solid season, but frankly, there aren’t a ton of options. LHB Mitch Moreland is a nice place to start, as he’s 5-for-18 with three dingers against Gray in his career. If you want to look at the other side, the A’s could make for a cheap/low owned stack. They’re facing RHP Hector Velazquez, who’s making his MLB debut. There’s obvious upside there, but Velazquez has been dominant in Triple-A this season, so beware.

Players to Consider

  • Mitch Moreland ($3,600)
  • Andrew Benintendi ($4,300)
  • Mookie Betts ($5,300)
  • Dustin Pedroia ($3,800)
  • Xander Bogaerts ($4,200)
  • Hanley Ramirez ($4,100)
