Houston Astros

Let's start things off with the obvious play of the night. The Houston Astros have a 5.34 implied run total which is more than half a run more than the next best tonight.

The power that Yordan Alvarez ($4,200) brings to the table is undeniable. This season Alvarez has managed to put up a ridiculous .439 wOBA and .341 ISO against right-handed pitchers. In addition, he has a 92.4 MPH average exit velocity and a very solid 201-foot average batted-ball distance against both righties and lefties combined. After the left-handed Alvarez, we come to a pair of right-handed hitters that are intriguing in this split.

Alex Bregman ($4,400) and George Springer ($4,000) have been great in a righty-righty split this season with a .400/.253 and a .401/304 wOBA and ISO, respectively. Bregman has a 199-foot average batted-ball distance which is among the top 50 against both righties and lefties combined. Springer, on the other hand, has managed a very good 8.9 percent barrels per plate appearance which ranks 28th in the Majors.

After the three big power hitters, there should be some interest in Jose Altuve ($4,200) and Michael Brantley ($3,900) to round out your stacks. This is a very expensive stack, but they should be worth it as the best offensive option on the slate.
