Home Run Props

Christian Walker To Hit a Home Run (+450)

The Arizona Diamondbacks are rocking a big 5.04 implied run total against the Los Angeles Angels, which should feature plenty of offense tonight.

The Halos will have Jose Suarez on the mound tonight, which should cause our eyes to light up. This year, Suarez has allowed a .486 SLG, .371 wOBA, 0.96 HR/9, 5.12 xFIP, 40.0% fly-ball rate, and 32.7% hard-contact rate versus right-handed hitters.

That type of fly-ball rate makes him a clear target any time he's on the slate, so we turn to Christian Walker for a homer.

Walker has plenty of power with a 123 wRC+, .344 wOBA, .174 ISO, 46.8% fly-ball rate, 44.7% hard-contact rate, and 13.6% HR/FB ratio versus left-handed pitchers. He's checking every box we could possibly want for a hitter and a home run prop.

It's great all around, so I'll add, Walker To Record an RBI (+120), too.

Freddie Freeman To Hit a Home Run (+440)

The Los Angeles Dodgers are always a target for homers and tonight is no different.

There are several great home run options within the Dodgers' lineup but tonight, I have my eyes on Freddie Freeman. While Freeman started the season slightly slow, he's in the top 25 of the league in rolling xwOBA over his last 50 plate appearances.

I like what I'm seeing with Freeman, who comes in with a 175 wRC+, .416 wOBA, .229 ISO, 46.0% fly-ball rate, and 10.5% HR/FB ratio versus right-handed pitchers this season.

Tonight, he'll be up against Dane Dunning, who is getting crushed by lefties this season to the tune of a .523 SLG, .369 wOBA, 4.21 xFIP, 2.82 HR/9, 40.7% fly-ball rate, and 45.0% hard-contact rate.

It's setting up to be a big night fo the Dodgers' offense, so I'll add, Freeman To Record an RBI (+120), too.

Brent Rooker To Hit a Home Run (+330)

Finally, let's turn to Brent Rooker of the Oakland Athletics.

While the Athletics may not be the most exciting team in the league, Rooker is a star. His BaseballSavant page is nearly picture-perfect and it's led him to hit 9 of his 13 home runs against right-handed pitchers, which is exactly the matchup he has tonight.

Overall, Rooker comes in with a 168 wRC+, .400 wOBA, .255 ISO, 44.9% fly-ball rate, and 42.7% hard-contact rate versus righties. He is absolutely crushing the ball this season and while he may not be a household name, he's got plenty of power for a homer.

He's up against Randy Vasquez, who comes in with a .473 SLG, .332 wOBA, 4.37 xFIP, 1.50 HR/9, 43.4% fly-ball rate, and 31.6% hard-contact rate versus righties.

Rooker can crush the ball in any matchup so I'll add, Rooker To Record an RBI (+150), too.
