Batter Up: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Afford to Miss

Here are the matchups that have caught our eye today. Let's dive in.

πŸ”₯ Giants 51-41 (-142) vs Pirates 41-51 (+119) O/U 9.0

With the Giants' pitcher Alex Cobb boasting a 2.82 ERA and the Pirates' Johan Oviedo at a 4.37 ERA, this game is set to be a nail-biter. The Pirates' bats rank #29 overall, making them one of the worst in baseball. This, coupled with the fact that PNC Park is one of the toughest ballparks for HRs, makes this an interesting matchup from a betting perspective.

❄️ Padres 44-49 (+126) vs Phillies 50-42 (-150) O/U 9.0

Despite the misty weather, the Phillies' Taijuan Walker (4.00 ERA) is set to face off against the Padres' Ryan Weathers, who's one of the worst starters in baseball allowing 5.4 runs per game. This could be a game-changer for the Phillies.

πŸ”₯ Marlins 53-41 (+144) vs Orioles 56-35 (-175) O/U 8.5

The Marlins, one of the worst run-scoring teams in baseball, are set to face the Orioles. With Marlins' pitcher Braxton Garrett's 3.90 ERA and Orioles' Kyle Gibson's 4.92 ERA, this game is set to be a tight one.

Pick of the Day

Out of the matchups above, my money's on the Phillies at -150. With Taijuan Walker on the mound and the Padres' Ryan Weathers' poor performance, it seems like a safe bet. Good luck, folks! πŸ€

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

πŸ₯‡Jorge Soler MIA +420

Jorge Soler is facing Kyle Gibson, who has a high ERA of 4.92 and only gives up a homer to 1.9% of batters faced. Soler has a strong homerun percentage of 7.45% and has hit 2 homeruns in the last two weeks. The wind at Oriole Park at Camden Yards is blowing out to center field, which could help carry a potential homerun ball.

πŸ₯ˆMatt Olson ATL +440

Matt Olson is up against Lance Lynn, who has an even higher ERA of 6.06 and gives up a homer to 5.0% of batters faced. Olson has a homerun percentage of 8.43% and has also hit 2 homeruns in the last two weeks. The wind at Truist Park is blowing out to right field, which could benefit left-handed hitter Olson.

πŸ₯‰Pete Alonso NYM +500

Pete Alonso is facing Tony Gonsolin, who has an ERA of 3.72 and gives up a homer to 3.0% of batters faced. Alonso has a high homerun percentage of 8.47% and has hit 2 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Citi Field is misty, which could potentially dampen the ball and make it harder to hit for a homerun, but Alonso's strong stats make him a good bet.
