The Braves are coming in hot with a 72-40 record and are ranked #1 for home runs per game. They're facing the Pirates, who are sitting at 51-63. With the Braves' Bryce Elder (3.01 ERA) on the mound against the Pirates' Bailey Falter (4.87 ERA), this game is shaping up to be a slugfest. 🔥

The Blue Jays (65-51) are facing off against the Guardians (55-60). With both teams' starters, Alek Manoah (5.72 ERA) and Noah Syndergaard (6.75 ERA), struggling to keep runs off the board, expect a high-scoring game. 🔥

Play of the Day

After weighing the odds, pitchers, and over/under, my favorite pick of the day is the Braves at +900. With their impressive record and top-ranking for home runs per game, they're a solid bet for today's games. 🍀

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Jose Siri TB +460

Jose Siri from Tampa Bay is my top pick with a +460 moneyline. He's facing Matthew Liberatore who has a high ERA of 6.93 and a low homer percentage of 2.2%. Siri's recent performance is impressive with a homer percentage of 8.949% and 3 homers in the last two weeks. The clear weather at Tropicana Field with a slight wind blowing in from left field should not significantly impact his performance.

🥈Max Muncy LAD +350

Max Muncy from LA Dodgers is my second pick with a +350 moneyline. He's up against Ty Blach who has a relatively high ERA of 4.85 and a low homer percentage of 2.6%. Muncy's homer percentage is a solid 8.4375% with 2 homers in the last two weeks. The partly cloudy weather at Dodger Stadium with a negligible wind speed should work in his favor.

🥉Davis Schneider TOR +630

My third pick is Davis Schneider from Toronto with a +630 moneyline. He's facing Noah Syndergaard who has a high ERA of 6.75 and a high homer percentage of 5.5%. Schneider's homer percentage is an impressive 10.526% with 2 homers in the last two weeks. The sunny weather at Progressive Field with a significant wind blowing out to right field should help boost his performance.
