Batter Up: Today's DFS Showdowns to Watch

Here are some of the matchups we're keeping an eye on today:

🔥 Astros (+104) vs Yankees (-124) O/U 9.0

With the Astros' Justin Verlander (3.11 ERA) facing off against the Yankees' Carlos Rodon (6.29 ERA), this game promises to be a slugfest. Yankee Stadium is a homer's paradise, ranking in the top 3 for HRs allowed per game. Rodon, one of the easiest pitchers to hit a HR off, could be in for a rough day.

❄️ Rays (-211) vs Tigers (+171) O/U 8.0

The Rays' Tyler Glasnow (3.15 ERA) is up against the Tigers' Matt Manning (4.34 ERA) in a game that could go either way. Glasnow has the third highest strikeout rate in baseball, but the Rays are one of the worst run-scoring teams. This one could be a low-scoring affair.

🔥 Braves (-118) vs Cubs (-102) O/U 8.5

The Braves' Charlie Morton (3.62 ERA) faces off against the Cubs' Justin Steele (3.03 ERA) in a game that could light up the scoreboard. Both teams are among the highest run-scoring teams in baseball, and the Braves are ranked #1 for HRs per game.

Today's Top Pick

Out of all the matchups, my money's on the Braves at -118. With their high run-scoring ability and the Cubs' strong batting lineup, this game promises to be a high-scoring affair. So, get your popcorn ready, folks! 🍿

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Aaron Judge NYY +164

Aaron Judge is a no-brainer here. He's got a 10.1% HR rate and is facing Justin Verlander, who has a higher ERA and gives up a homer 2.4% of the time. The weather at Yankee Stadium is partly cloudy, which shouldn't affect his performance. His recent performance is also impressive with 1 HR in the last 23 at-bats.

🥈Shohei Ohtani LAA +230

Shohei Ohtani is another solid pick. He's got a 9.5% HR rate and is up against George Kirby, who has a lower ERA but gives up a homer 2.8% of the time. The weather at Angel Stadium is misty, but this shouldn't be a problem for Ohtani. His recent performance is also commendable with 5 HRs in the last 48 at-bats.

🥉Joey Votto CIN +300

Joey Votto is my bronze pick. He's got an 8.9% HR rate and is facing Joan Adon, who has a high ERA and gives up a homer 7.3% of the time. The weather at Great American Ball Park is overcast, which could potentially favor Votto. His recent performance is also noteworthy with 3 HRs in the last 48 at-bats.
