🔥 Guardians 57-62 (-103) vs Reds 62-58 (-117) 9.5 O/U
First up, we have the Guardians vs Reds at 6:40 PM. The Guardians are the toughest team to strike out in baseball, leading with just 7 per game. With the Reds' Graham Ashcraft on the mound with a 4.95 ERA, this could be an interesting game to watch.

Next, we have the Astros vs Marlins at 6:40 PM. The Marlins' bats are one of the worst in baseball, ranking #29 overall. However, they're up against Astros' pitcher Cristian Javier, who has a 4.36 ERA. This could be a low-scoring game, hence the 'ice-cold' emoji.
🔥 Yankees 60-59 (+176) vs Braves 76-42 (-216) 10.5 O/U
Finally, we have the Yankees vs Braves at 7:20 PM. The Braves are ranked #1 for Home Runs (2.1) per game and are one of the highest run-scoring teams in baseball at 6.8 per game. They're up against Yankees' pitcher Luis Severino, who has an 8.06 ERA. This game is likely to be a high-scoring one, hence the 'fire' emoji.

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites
🥇Matt Olson ATL +250Matt Olson is a power hitter with a solid 9.73% home run rate this season. He's been on fire in the last two weeks, hitting 8 home runs in 52 at-bats. Plus, he's facing Luis Severino, who has a high ERA of 8.06 and gives up a home run 5.8% of the time. The weather at Truist Park is partly cloudy, with a wind blowing towards right field, which could help left-handed Olson's chances of hitting a home run.
🥈Shohei Ohtani LAA +400Shohei Ohtani has been a sensation this season, boasting a home run rate of 9.34%. He's up against Jordan Montgomery, who has a decent ERA of 3.38 but gives up a home run 2.5% of the time. The wind at Globe Life Field is blowing in from center field, which isn't ideal, but Ohtani's power should be able to overcome this.
🥉Yordan Alvarez HOU +320Yordan Alvarez has a strong home run rate of 7.89% this season. He's facing Johnny Cueto, who has a high ERA of 5.33 and gives up a home run 6.7% of the time.
