Clash of the Titans: Today's DFS Showdowns You Can't Miss

Here are the matchups we're keeping our eyes on:

πŸ”₯ Braves 99-55 (-230) vs Nationals 68-87 (+190) O/U 9.0

With the Braves ranking #1 in team batting average and the Nationals ranking #3 at giving up hits, this game is likely to be a high-scoring affair. The Braves are also one of the highest run-scoring teams in baseball, averaging 5.8 runs per game. This game is set to be a slugfest!

❄️ Diamondbacks 81-73 (+116) vs Yankees 78-76 (-139) O/U 8.0

Yankee Stadium is one of the top 3 ballparks in baseball for HR's, allowing 1.51 per game. This could be a game of long balls, making it an interesting one for the over/under.

πŸ”₯ Angels 69-85 (+180) vs Twins 82-72 (-220) O/U 7.5

With Kenny Rosenberg from the Angels being one of the worst starters in baseball, allowing 5.5 runs per game, and the Twins being the easiest team to strikeout, this game could be a pitcher's paradise.

Pick of the Day

Looking at the odds, pitchers, over/under and more, my favorite pick of the day is the Braves at -230. Their strong batting average and high run-scoring ability make them a solid bet for today's games. πŸ€

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

πŸ₯‡Corey Seager TEX +325

Corey Seager is a solid pick with a homerun moneyline of +325. He's facing Logan Gilbert, who has an ERA of 3.87 and gives up a homer to 3.7% of batters. Seager's recent performance is impressive with 4 homeruns in the last two weeks and a total of 32 homeruns in 495 at-bats, a rate of 7.26%. The sunny weather at Globe Life Field with wind blowing towards the right field also favors right-handed hitters like Seager.

πŸ₯ˆYordan Alvarez HOU +295

Yordan Alvarez is another strong choice with a homerun moneyline of +295. He's up against Jordan Lyles, who has a high ERA of 6.21 and gives up a homer to 5.4% of batters. Alvarez has hit 3 homeruns in the last two weeks and has a total of 28 homeruns in 461 at-bats, a rate of 7.39%. The partly cloudy weather at Minute Maid Park with wind blowing towards the right field is also in his favor.

πŸ₯‰Pete Alonso NYM +500

Pete Alonso is a great bet with a homerun moneyline of +500. He's facing Zack Wheeler, who has an ERA of 3.58 and gives up a homer to 2.7% of batters. Alonso's recent performance is strong with 3 homeruns in the last two weeks and a total of 45 homeruns in 620 at-bats, a rate of 8.43%. The light rain at Citizens Bank Park may dampen the ball's flight, but Alonso's power should be able to overcome it.
