Game On: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Miss
Here are three matchups that are definitely worth your attention:
🔥 Angels 63-68 (+114) vs Phillies 72-58 (-136) 9.5 O/U
With Lucas Giolito (4.40 ERA) on the mound for the Angels and Taijuan Walker (4.08 ERA) for the Phillies, this game promises to be a slugfest. The Phillies are ranked #2 for home runs per game, and Giolito has a high strikeout rate. This game is definitely one to watch.
❄️ Yankees 62-68 (-103) vs Tigers 59-71 (-117) 9.0 O/U
Luis Severino (7.26 ERA) is pitching for the Yankees, and the Tigers are yet to announce their starter. With Severino's high ERA and the Yankees' low run-scoring, this game could be a low-scoring affair.
🔥 Braves 84-45 (-240) vs Rockies 49-81 (+195) 12.0 O/U
The Braves' Bryce Elder (3.02 ERA) is facing the Rockies' Austin Gomber (5.48 ERA). With the Braves ranking #1 for home runs per game and having one of the highest run-scoring teams in baseball, this game promises to be a high-scoring showdown.
Pick of the Day
My favorite pick of the day? I'm liking the Braves at -240. With their strong batting and high run-scoring, they're a solid bet against the Rockies.
🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites
🥇Shohei Ohtani LAA +250Shohei Ohtani is a no-brainer for the top spot. He's up against Taijuan Walker, who has an ERA of 4.08 and gives up a homer 3.0% of the time. Ohtani's HR percentage is a whopping 9.24%, and he's been consistent in the last two weeks with 4 HR in 43 at-bats. The overcast weather and wind blowing towards right field at Citizens Bank Park could also play in his favor.
🥈Pete Alonso NYM +450Pete Alonso is another solid bet. He's facing Jon Gray who has a decent ERA of 3.55 but gives up a homer 2.6% of the time. Alonso's HR percentage is 8.74%, and he's been on fire in the last two weeks with 4 HR in 50 at-bats. The overcast weather at Citi Field shouldn't affect his performance.
🥉Kyle Schwarber PHI +300Rounding out the top three is Kyle Schwarber. He's up against Lucas Giolito, who has an ERA of 4.40 and gives up a homer 4.3% of the time. Schwarber's HR percentage is 7.71%, and he's been smashing it in the last two weeks with 6 HR in 41 at-bats. The overcast weather and wind blowing towards right field at Citizens Bank Park could help his cause.
