🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites
🥇Cody Bellinger CHC +500Cody Bellinger is facing off against Jack Flaherty, who has a higher than average ERA of 4.43 and gives up a home run to 2.1% of batters. Bellinger's recent form is impressive, with 6 home runs in his last 48 at-bats, and his overall home run percentage is a solid 5.77%. The wind at Busch Stadium is blowing out to left field at 12MPH, which could give Bellinger's hits an extra push.
🥈Josh Naylor CLE +440Josh Naylor is up against Lance Lynn, who has an alarming ERA of 6.47 and gives up a home run to a whopping 5.2% of batters. Naylor has a home run percentage of 4.52% and has hit 4 home runs in his last 46 at-bats. The wind at Guaranteed Rate Field is relatively calm, but Lynn's poor pitching stats make Naylor a strong pick.
🥉Pete Alonso NYM +300Pete Alonso is facing Jake Irvin, who has an ERA of 5.09 and gives up a home run to 4% of batters. Alonso has a high home run percentage of 8.24% and has hit 2 home runs in his last 39 at-bats. The wind at Citi Field is blowing out to right field at 2MPH, which might not be a significant factor, but Irvin's ERA and Alonso's hitting stats make him a good bet.
