๐Ÿฅ‡Aaron Judge NYY +245

Aaron Judge of the Yankees is my top pick. He's up against Eduardo Rodriguez, who has a decent ERA of 3.11 but still gives up a homer to 2.2% of batters. Judge has been on fire recently, hitting 7 homers in his last 49 at-bats, and his overall homer percentage this season is a whopping 10.47%. The wind at Yankee Stadium is blowing out to center field, which could help carry a deep hit over the fence.

๐ŸฅˆAustin Riley ATL +290

My silver medal goes to Austin Riley of the Braves. He's facing Adam Wainwright, who's been struggling with an ERA of 8.10 and gives up a homer to 3.9% of batters. Riley's recent performance is impressive, with 5 homers in his last 55 at-bats, and his overall homer percentage this season is 6.18%. The wind at Truist Park is blowing slightly to the right, which could favor a right-handed hitter like Riley.

๐Ÿฅ‰Isaac Paredes TB +575

My bronze medal pick is Isaac Paredes of the Rays. He's up against Luis Castillo, who has a solid ERA of 3.24 but gives up a homer to 3.7% of batters. Paredes has a homer percentage of 6.46% this season and has hit 4 homers in his last 48 at-bats. The wind at Tropicana Field is blowing out to left field, which could help a left-handed hitter like Paredes.
