Batter Up: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Miss

Let's take a look at some of the most interesting matchups today. We've analyzed the data, checked the odds, and here's what we've got:

🔥 Pirates (+101) vs Mets (-121) O/U 9.0

The Pirates and Mets are both sitting at 54-66, making this a battle for redemption. The Pirates' Johan Oviedo (4.42 ERA) will be facing off against the Mets' Tylor Megill (5.64 ERA), one of the worst starters in baseball allowing 5.6 runs per game. This could be a high-scoring game, so keep an eye on the over.

❄️ Tigers (+149) vs Twins (-181) O/U 8.5

The Twins are ranked #2 for Home Runs (1.7) per game, and they'll be looking to take advantage of the Tigers' weak pitching. The Twins' Kenta Maeda (3.97 ERA) will be on the mound, and he's been solid this season.

🔥 Diamondbacks (-135) vs Rockies (+113) O/U 12.5

The Rockies' Austin Gomber (5.33 ERA) is one of the worst starters in baseball, allowing 5.3 runs per game. The Diamondbacks' Slade Cecconi (2.84 ERA) will be looking to capitalize on this. Expect a high-scoring game here.

Today's Top Pick

Out of all the matchups today, I'm liking the Diamondbacks at -135. With the Rockies' weak pitching and the Diamondbacks' solid performance at the plate, I'm expecting them to come out on top. 🍀

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Shohei Ohtani LAA +320

Shohei Ohtani is a no-brainer, with a whopping 9.25% home run rate and facing Jon Gray, who has a higher ERA of 3.51 and gives up a homer to 2.6% of batters.

🥈Aaron Judge NYY +205

Aaron Judge is up against Charlie Morton, who has a higher ERA of 3.71 and gives up a homer to 2.3% of batters. Judge's home run rate is at an impressive 9.69%, and with the wind blowing 162.5 degrees from center field at Truist Park, it could aid his chances. His recent performance includes 2 home runs in the last 45 at-bats.

🥉Jose Siri TB +600

Jose Siri has an 8.45% home run rate and is up against Ross Stripling, who has a high ERA of 5.10 and gives up a homer to 5.6% of batters.
