Now, let's talk about the matchups that have caught our eye:

🔥 Padres 48-51 (-218) vs Tigers 44-54 (+178) 8.5 O/U

With the Padres' Joe Musgrove boasting a 3.40 ERA and the Tigers' Alex Faedo struggling with a 6.98 ERA, this game is set to be a scorcher. Comerica Park is notoriously tough for HRs, but with Faedo's track record, the Padres might just have a shot.

❄️ Giants 54-45 (-121) vs Nationals 40-58 (+100) 8.5 O/U

The Giants are struggling with their batting, ranking #30 overall. However, with Anthony DeSclafani on the mound, they might just pull through against the Nationals.

🔥 Royals 28-72 (+167) vs Yankees 52-47 (-204) 9.0 O/U

With Yankee Stadium being one of the top 3 ballparks for HRs and both teams' pitchers struggling, this game is set to be a high-scoring affair.

Pick of the Day

My favorite pick of the day? I'm liking the Royals at +167. Despite their record, the combination of Yankee Stadium's propensity for HRs and the Yankees' struggling pitcher Luis Severino could make for an interesting upset. Let's see if they can knock it out of the park! 🍀

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Shohei Ohtani LAA +310

Shohei Ohtani is a no-brainer for the top pick. He's up against Mitch Keller, who has a decent ERA of 3.73 but gives up a homer to 2.5% of batters faced. Ohtani has been on fire with a 9.29% home run rate and has hit 4 home runs in the last two weeks. The weather at Angel Stadium is misty, but the wind blowing 155.0 degrees from center field could help carry the ball out of the park.

🥈Giancarlo Stanton NYY +285

Giancarlo Stanton is facing Jordan Lyles, who has a high ERA of 5.87 and gives up a homer to 4.6% of batters faced. Stanton's home run rate is 7.39% and he's been hot recently, hitting 6 home runs in the last two weeks. The wind at Yankee Stadium is blowing -80.0 degrees from center field, but Stanton's power should overcome this.

🥉Jose Siri TB +390

Jose Siri is a solid choice for the third pick. He's up against Tyler Wells, who has a decent ERA of 3.60 but gives up a homer to 5.1% of batters faced. Siri has a high home run rate of 9.35% and has hit 4 home runs in the last two weeks. The weather at Tropicana Field is partly cloudy with a strong wind blowing 265.0 degrees from center field, which should help carry the ball out of the park.
