Home Run Prop Bets Today
Hitting a home run is one of the highest variance aspects about a baseball game. The best hitters in the league only have about a 10% Home Run Rate per At-bat (Total Home Runs/Total At Bats), meaning 90% of at bats they will not hit a home run. Because of this, we only recommend home run props when we find a favorable matchup and profitable odds. However, it’s always important to practice proper bankroll management and treat home run props like a secondary bet – sprinkle a little bit on for the sweat.
