🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Corey Seager TEX +400

Corey Seager is facing Sonny Gray, who has a relatively low ERA of 3.08 but only gives up a homer to 0.8% of batters faced. However, Seager's recent performance is impressive with a 7.23% homerun rate and 5 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Target Field is partly cloudy with a wind blowing straight out, which could potentially aid in a homerun.

🥈Aaron Judge NYY o0.5 HR moneyline

Aaron Judge is up against Zach Eflin, who has an ERA of 3.58 and gives up a homer to 2.6% of batters faced. Judge's homerun rate is an impressive 10.98%, and he's hit 7 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Tropicana Field is partly cloudy with a wind blowing towards right field, which could favor Judge's powerful right-handed swing.

🥉Shohei Ohtani LAA o0.5 HR moneyline

Shohei Ohtani is facing Kodai Senga, who has a low ERA of 3.19 and gives up a homer to just 2.2% of batters faced. Despite this, Ohtani's homerun rate is a strong 9.42%, and he's hit 4 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Citi Field is misty with a wind blowing straight in from center field, but Ohtani's power could overcome these conditions.
