Batter Up: Today's DFS Showdowns to Watch

🔥 Phillies 56-48 (-144) vs Marlins 56-49 (-157) 4.0 O/U

With the Phillies' Tarik Skubal (4.85 ERA) facing off against the Marlins' Rich Hill (4.89 ERA), this game promises to be a tight one. The Marlins bats are struggling, ranking #29 overall, but LoanDepot Park's reputation for being tough on HRs might level the playing field.

❄️ Rays 63-44 (+106) vs Yankees 55-49 (+114) 9.0 O/U

The Rays are struggling to score, averaging just 3.7 runs per game. However, with Dean Kremer (4.59 ERA) on the mound, they might have a fighting chance against the Yankees and their pitcher, Brandon Bielak (3.62 ERA).

🔥 Tigers 47-58 (+131) vs Pirates 46-58 (+121) 9.0 O/U

The Tigers' Cristopher Sanchez (2.98 ERA) will be up against the Pirates' Jesus Luzardo (3.24 ERA). Luzardo has the #15 highest strikeout rate in baseball, averaging 6.75 per start, so this could be a tough game for the Tigers.

The Showdown Showstopper

Out of all these matchups, my favorite pick of the day has to be the Tigers at +131. Despite their underdog status, Cristopher Sanchez's solid ERA and the Pirates' reliance on Jesus Luzardo's strikeout rate make this a potentially profitable game. So, get your popcorn ready, folks, and let's enjoy some baseball!

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

🥇Max Muncy LAD +360

Max Muncy of the LA Dodgers is my top pick. He's facing Graham Ashcraft, who has an ERA of 5.64 and gives up a homer to 3.4% of batters faced. Muncy has a homerun rate of 8.97% and has hit 6 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Dodger Stadium is hazy, but the wind is not a significant factor.

🥈Jake Burger CWS +340

Next up is Jake Burger of the Chicago White Sox. He's up against Aaron Civale, who has a lower ERA of 2.54 but gives up a homer to 1.8% of batters faced. Burger has a homerun rate of 8.51% and has hit 4 homeruns in the last two weeks. The wind at Guaranteed Rate Field is blowing out to left field at 11MPH, which could give Burger an extra push.

🥉Jose Siri TB +490

Finally, my third pick is Jose Siri of the Tampa Bay Rays. He's facing Brandon Bielak, who has an ERA of 3.62 and gives up a homer to 4.3% of batters faced. Siri has a homerun rate of 8.81% and has hit 2 homeruns in the last two weeks. The weather at Minute Maid Park is sunny and the wind is not a significant factor.
