Daily Dinger: Best Home Run Picks for Monday, June 20 (Can Mike Trout Make it Four Straight Games with a Homer?)
The BetSided team went a bit cold with our "Daily Dinger" picks to end the week, but a new one begins today with three of our favorite plays to leave the yard at great value!
For Monday, both sets of "Sox" are in play with the Red Sox welcome the Tigers at Fenway, while the White Sox host the Blue Jays on the South Side.
Meanwhile, out in Anaheim, Mike Trout of the Angels has been the catalyst for the Halos' sweep of the Mariners last weekend; homering in three straight games.
Here are our favorite MLB home run prop bets for Monday, June 20. Today's MLB odds are available via WynnBET Sportsbook.
Rafael Devers (+280) - Boston Red Sox vs. Detroit Tigers
There isn’t a ton that I love on the board today with a lot of solid starting pitchers on the mound, but I’ll fade Detroit Tigers pitcher Alex Faedo against the Boston Red Sox and Rafael Devers.
Devers is hitting .330 with a league best 161 total bases this season. He’s slugged 16 homers and now is facing a young righty who has allowed three homers in his last two starts.
Faedo has a 4.28 ERA on the season, and I wouldn’t be shocked if he struggles against a tough Boston offense in this one. -- Peter Dewey
Jose Abreu (+335) - Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Abreu is swinging a hot bat right now, hitting .292 over the last two weeks, and .360 over the last week. Only issue is he has just two homers to show for it over the last 14 games.
He now faces Jose Berríos who has struggled with limiting the long ball all season. He has allowed 1.5 homers per 9 innings this season so I'll look for Abreu to get the White Sox on track.
Mike Trout (+255) - Los Angeles Angels vs. Kansas City RoyalsTrout's going bananas in the home of the "Rally Monkey" in Anaheim, with three dingers in his last three games as the Angels swept the Mariners at home.
The Angels' run of success should continue vs. the Royals tonight. KC left-hander Kris Bubic has a negative WAR on the season (-0.2) and has an 8.36 ERA in eight starts this year with an expected ERA of 6.73. He's walking 5.79 batters per nine innings and owns the highest HR/9 on the slate.
