Here are a few matchups that have caught our eye:
🔥 White Sox (+155) vs Orioles (-188) O/U 9.0
With the White Sox's Dylan Cease (4.87 ERA) facing off against the Orioles' Kyle Gibson (5.00 ERA), this game is set to be a high-scoring affair. Cease has the 26th highest strikeout rate in baseball, averaging 6.26 per start.
❄️ Angels (+152) vs Phillies (-184) O/U 9.5
The Angels' Reid Detmers (5.03 ERA) is up against the Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez (3.33 ERA). The Phillies are ranked #1 for home runs per game, and Detmers is one of the worst starters in baseball, allowing 5.0 runs per game. This could be a low-scoring game.

The Guardians' Tanner Bibee (3.01 ERA) is facing the Twins' Sonny Gray (3.00 ERA). The Twins are ranked #3 for home runs per game, and the Guardians are one of the worst run-scoring teams in baseball. This game could go over the over/under.
Matchup of the Day

🏁 Home Run Prop Favorites
🥇Shohei Ohtani LAA +450Shohei Ohtani is a no-brainer for the top spot. With a HR percentage of 9.07%, he's a homerun machine. He's facing Cristopher Sanchez who has an ERA of 3.33 and gives up a homer to 4.3% of batters faced. The weather at Citizens Bank Park is partly cloudy with a 15MPH wind blowing towards the outfield, which could help carry the ball.
🥈Kyle Schwarber PHI +330Kyle Schwarber is another strong choice with a HR percentage of 7.77%. He's up against Reid Detmers who has an ERA of 5.03 and gives up a homer to 3.4% of batters faced. The weather at Citizens Bank Park is partly cloudy with a 15MPH wind blowing towards the outfield, which could give Schwarber's hits some extra distance.
🥉Davis Schneider TOR +575Davis Schneider is a bit of a wildcard with a HR percentage of 13.33%, but he's only had 53 at-bats. He's facing Patrick Corbin who has an ERA of 4.93 and gives up a homer to 4.3% of batters faced. The weather at Rogers Centre is overcast with a 21MPH wind blowing towards left field, which could be favorable for Schneider.
