Game On: Today's Matchups You Can't Afford to Miss

πŸ”₯ Mets (+127) vs Marlins (-152) 8.0 O/U

With the Mets' Joey Lucchesi bringing a 2.83 ERA to the mound against the Marlins' Braxton Garrett with a 3.67 ERA, this game is set to be a tight one. Plus, LoanDepot Park is notorious for being tough on HRs, so expect some strategic plays.

❄️ Twins (-132) vs Reds (+110) 9.5 O/U

The Twins' Kenta Maeda with a 4.50 ERA is up against the Reds' Ben Lively with a 5.50 ERA. Lively is known for giving up runs, so expect the Twins to capitalize on this. Plus, the Twins are the easiest team to strikeout, leading the league at 10.

πŸ”₯ Angels (+169) vs Rays (-208) 8.0 O/U

The Angels' Patrick Sandoval with a 4.68 ERA is facing an unknown pitcher from the Rays. The Angels are ranked #3 for Home Runs per game, so expect some fireworks.

Pick of the Day

My money's on the Angels at +169. With their strong HR stats and the Rays' pitcher uncertainty, it's a gamble worth taking. πŸ€

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites

πŸ₯‡Matt Olson ATL +500.0

Matt Olson is a beast at the plate, with a whopping 9.24% homerun rate. He's been on fire the last two weeks, knocking 8 balls out of the park in just 52 at-bats. He's facing Cristopher Sanchez, who's been known to give up a homer to 4% of batters faced, and the wind at Truist Park is blowing out to right field, which could help carry Olson's hits out of the park.

πŸ₯ˆPete Alonso NYM +475.0

Pete Alonso is another power hitter, with a homerun rate of 8.70%. He's been consistent in the last two weeks, hitting 4 homeruns in 48 at-bats. He's up against Braxton Garrett, who has an ERA of 3.67 and gives up a homer to 2.9% of batters faced. The weather at LoanDepot Park is partly cloudy with a wind blowing out to right field, which could give Alonso's hits an extra push.

πŸ₯‰Kyle Schwarber PHI +400.0

Kyle Schwarber is a force to be reckoned with, boasting a homerun rate of 8.29%. He's been on a roll in the last two weeks, hitting 6 homeruns in 53 at-bats. He's facing Spencer Strider, who has an ERA of 3.78 and gives up a homer to 2.9% of batters faced. The wind at Truist Park is blowing out to right field, which could help Schwarber's hits sail out of the park.
