Home Run Props

Josh Naylor To Hit a Home Run (+430)

The Cleveland Guardians are on the road to take on the Colorado Rockies, giving us the best hitting environment in the league.

It's Coors Field, and the home run potential is always something worth considering, as long as we can find good odds. The home run odds are always impacted by the park and the matchup, which can make it difficult to find viable odds at Coors Field, but we have a good one with Josh Naylor.

He comes in with a solid 118 wRC+, .334 wOBA, .233 ISO, 37.1% fly-ball rate, 33.6% hard-contact rate, and 20.9% HR/FB ratio versus right-handed pitchers. That's some legit power, and even when there is a pitching change, he still carries a .291 ISO versus lefties.

The Rockies will have Ryan Feltner on the bump tonight, who comes in with a .438 SLG, .337 wOBA, 0.96 HR/9, 37.2% fly-ball rate, and 35.2% hard-contact rate versus left-handed hitters.

They have a slate-high 5.54 implied run total, and it won't be a surprise to see some of that coming via the long ball off of Feltner.

Danny Jansen To Hit a Home Run (+340)

The Toronto Blue Jays are getting the offense going in recent games and can continue that tonight against the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox will have Mike Clevinger on the mound, a pitcher we can absolutely look to target for some homers. This season, Clevinger has allowed a .778 SLG, .540 wOBA, 3.60 HR/9, 6.79 xFIP, 42.1% fly-ball rate, and 50.0% hard-contact rate versus right-handed hitters.

We turn to Danny Jansen, who comes in rocking a 169 wRC+, .408 wOBA, .319 ISO, 59.0% fly-ball rate, and 34.4% hard-contact rate versus right-handed pitchers.

It's exactly what we want to see when targeting a pitcher for a homer, so I'll also add Jansen To Record an RBI (+130), too.

Matt Olson To Hit a Home Run (+340)

With beautiful hitting weather, the Atlanta Braves could be in for a few homers tonight.

The temperature will be in the mid-80s, and a bit of wind will be blowing out, which is near picture-perfect for offensive production. The Braves have a 5.09 implied run total and will be up against Jake Irvin of the Washington Nationals.

This season, Irvin has allowed a .457 SLG, 1.23 HR/9, 4.60 xFIP, 46.2% fly-ball rate, and 35.5% hard-contact rate versus left-handed hitters. Those are very friendly numbers to see for opposing hitters, so we'll look to Matt Olson.

The reigning home run king from last year comes in with a 106 wRC+, .319 wOBA, .176 ISO, 39.3% fly-ball rate, and 40.4% hard-contact rate versus right-handed pitchers. I love this spot for offense, so I'll add Olson To Record an RBI (+110), too.
