🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Ronald Acuna Jr. ATL +450

Ronald Acuna Jr. is facing Justin Steele, who has a decent ERA but gives up a homer to nearly 2% of batters faced. Acuna Jr. has a solid homerun percentage of 6.44% and has been on fire the last two weeks with 5 homeruns in 50 at bats. The wind at Truist Park is blowing towards left field, which could potentially assist right-handed hitters like Acuna Jr.

🥈Josh Donaldson MIL +430

Josh Donaldson is up against Zack Thompson, who has a higher ERA and gives up a homer to 3% of batters faced. Donaldson's homerun percentage is a whopping 8.84%, the highest among the players listed, and he's been consistent with 3 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at American Family Field is overcast, which could potentially reduce the impact of wind on the game.

🥉Pete Alonso NYM +475

Pete Alonso has the advantage of facing Braxton Garrett, who has a higher ERA and gives up a homer to nearly 3% of batters faced. Alonso's homerun percentage is impressive at 8.30% and he's hit 2 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Citi Field is rainy, which could potentially affect the pitcher's grip and control, giving Alonso an edge.
