The Rays are bringing Aaron Civale to the mound with his 2.59 ERA, while the Marlins counter with Sandy Alcantara and his 4.21 ERA. This game is at Marlins Park, one of the toughest parks for home runs. This could be a low-scoring game, making the under a good bet.

Pick of the Day
My favorite pick of the day? I'm liking the Phillies at -160. With their home run ranking and the Angels' struggling bats, I think they've got a good shot at taking this one. 🍀
🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites
🥇Aaron Judge NYY +290.0Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees is my top pick. He's facing Tarik Skubal, who has a high ERA of 4.46 and only gives up a homer 0.6% of the time. Judge has been on fire lately with a 10.74% HR rate and 7 homers in the last two weeks. The wind at Comerica Park is blowing at 92.5 degrees, which should help carry the ball out of the park.
🥈Kyle Schwarber PHI +310.0Next up is Kyle Schwarber of the Philadelphia Phillies. He's up against Tyler Anderson, who has a high ERA of 5.35 and gives up a homer 2.5% of the time. Schwarber has a solid HR rate of 7.63% and has hit 6 homers in the last two weeks. The wind at Citizens Bank Park is blowing at 37.5 degrees, which could help Schwarber's chances of hitting a homer.
🥉Max Muncy LAD +350.0Finally, I'm going with Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He's facing Merrill Kelly, who has a relatively low ERA of 3.10 and gives up a homer 3.1% of the time. However, Muncy has an impressive HR rate of 8.20% and has hit 3 homers in the last two weeks. The wind at Dodger Stadium is blowing at -12.5 degrees, which might not be ideal, but Muncy's recent performance and high HR rate make him a good bet.
