🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites
🥇Shohei Ohtani LAA +285Shohei Ohtani is a beast at the plate, with a homerun rate of 9.39% and 34 homers in 428 at-bats. He's facing Ryan Borucki, who has a higher ERA of 4.50 and gives up a homer to 2.4% of batters faced. The weather at Angel Stadium is misty, but with a 4MPH wind blowing towards right field, this could aid Ohtani's chances of hitting one out of the park.
🥈Mike Ford SEA +560Mike Ford has a homerun rate of 9.90%, with 10 homers in 111 at-bats. He's up against Kevin Gausman, who has a lower ERA of 3.03 but still gives up a homer to 1.9% of batters faced. The weather at T-Mobile Park is overcast, but with a 6MPH wind blowing towards the outfield, this could help Ford's chances of hitting a homer.
🥉Jose Siri TB +500Jose Siri has a homerun rate of 9.52%, with 20 homers in 228 at-bats. He's facing Grayson Rodriguez, who has a high ERA of 7.33 and gives up a homer to 5.6% of batters faced. The weather at Tropicana Field is partly cloudy, but with a strong 12MPH wind blowing towards the outfield, this could significantly boost Siri's chances of hitting a homer.
