🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Shohei Ohtani LAA +300

Shohei Ohtani is a no-brainer for the gold medal spot. With a homerun percentage of 9.73% and facing off against Luis Castillo who has an ERA of 2.95 and gives up a homer to 3.6% of batters faced, the odds are in Ohtani's favor. Plus, the sunny weather at Angel Stadium with a slight wind blowing 195.0 deg from center field should not pose any significant hindrance.

🥈Aaron Judge NYY +150

Aaron Judge is our silver medalist. He's been hitting homeruns at a rate of 10.36% and is going up against Hunter Brown who has an ERA of 4.20 and gives up a homer to 2.8% of batters faced. The overcast weather at Yankee Stadium with a significant wind blowing 90.0 deg from center field could potentially aid in getting that ball out of the park.

🥉Pete Alonso NYM +330

Pete Alonso takes the bronze medal. With a homerun percentage of 8.42% and facing off against Hunter Brown who has an ERA of 4.20 and gives up a homer to 2.8% of batters faced, Alonso has a good shot at hitting a homer. The overcast weather at Yankee Stadium with a significant wind blowing 90.0 deg from center field could potentially be beneficial.
