Game On: Today's DFS Showdowns to Watch

Here are the matchups we're keeping an eye on today:

🔥 Rockies (+195) vs Cubs (-240) O/U 9.0

With the Rockies' Jameson Taillon on the mound, who's one of the worst starters in baseball allowing 5.5 runs per game, this game could easily go over the O/U. The Cubs are favorites here, but the Rockies might just surprise us.

❄️ Brewers (-145) vs Marlins (+122) O/U 7.5

The Brewers' Corbin Burnes has the #24 highest strikeout rate in baseball, averaging 6.33 per start. The Marlins' JT Chargois isn't far behind with a 3.52 ERA. This game is likely to go under the O/U.

🔥 Braves (-250) vs Nationals (+205) O/U 9.5

The Braves are ranked #1 for Home Runs (0.9) per game and team batting average at 0.276, while the Nationals rank #3 at giving up hits. With the Braves' Charlie Morton on the mound, who has the #29 highest strikeout rate in baseball, this game is likely to go over the O/U.

Pick of the Day

My favorite pick of the day is the Braves at -250. With their strong batting lineup and Morton on the mound, they're a solid bet. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor! 🍀

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Matt Olson ATL +360

Matt Olson is my top pick for a homer, facing off against Patrick Corbin who has a high ERA of 5.21 and a homer rate of 4.2%. Olson's impressive HR rate of 9.2% combined with his recent form (7 HRs in the last two weeks) and the favorable wind conditions at Nationals Park make him a strong candidate for a homer.

🥈Ronald Acuna Jr. ATL +370

Next up is Ronald Acuna Jr., also facing Corbin. Despite a slightly lower HR rate than Olson, Acuna Jr. has been in great form recently, matching Olson's 7 HRs in the last two weeks. The wind conditions at Nationals Park will also work in his favor, making him a solid bet.

🥉Kyle Schwarber PHI +410

Rounding out the top three is Kyle Schwarber, who will be up against Tylor Megill. Megill's high ERA of 4.94 and homer rate of 3.3% make him a prime target for Schwarber, who boasts a HR rate of 8.1%. Schwarber's recent form is also strong, with 4 HRs in the last two weeks, and the overcast conditions at Citizens Bank Park should not pose a significant obstacle.
