🔥 Guardians 75-84 (-111) vs Tigers 76-83 (-109) 8.0 O/U

With the Guardians' Cal Quantrill and his 5.13 ERA going up against the Tigers' Joey Wentz and his 6.45 ERA, we're expecting a high-scoring game here. Both teams have struggled with their pitching, but the Guardians have the edge in batting, making them our pick for this matchup.

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Kyle Schwarber PHI +330

Kyle Schwarber is a solid pick with his impressive 8.05% home run rate and recent performance of 3 home runs in the last two weeks. He's facing Tylor Megill, who has a high ERA of 4.92 and gives up a homer to 3.3% of batters faced. The weather at Citi Field is heavy rain, but Schwarber's power and Megill's vulnerability to home runs make this a favorable matchup.

🥈Yordan Alvarez HOU +360

Yordan Alvarez is another strong choice, boasting a 7.76% home run rate. He's up against Zac Gallen, who has a decent ERA of 3.49 but gives up a homer to 2.7% of batters faced. The weather at Chase Field is partly cloudy, and with the wind blowing 100.0 degrees from center field, Alvarez's chances of hitting a homer are high.

🥉Josh Donaldson MIL +525

Josh Donaldson is our bronze medal pick, with a high 8.55% home run rate. He's facing Kyle Hendricks, who has a low ERA of 3.69 but gives up a homer to only 2.1% of batters faced. The weather at American Family Field is misty, but with Donaldson's power and Hendricks' low home run rate, this matchup offers good odds.
