Best Home Run Prop Bets | Monday, April 15th

Mike Trout of Angels Hits Baseball

The 2024 MLB season has commenced, and who doesn’t love home run prop bets? We expect there to be home runs to start off the season. Let’s take a look at our best bets for players to go yard and start the season on a high note. Here are the best home run prop bets to make for Monday.

The GoldSheet team has just introduced a new product called GoldSheet Lite to help you handicap the NBA, NCAAB and MLB slate each day.

We have been on a heater with home run props, and a new week brings new opportunities. This week, new series start in the MLB, so there will be new, unique matchups for home run prop bets. Also, the weather is getting nicer around the country, so we should see more long balls flying all over.

Let’s dive into the best home run prop bets to make today.

Best Home Run Prop Bets – MLB Free HR Props Picks

Kyle Schwarber (PHI) +215

Kyle Schwarber has faced Cal Quantrill 11 times in his career, and all three of his hits against Quantrill were home runs. This time, Schwarber will face Quantrill in the high altitude of Colorado where baseballs fly. +215 is not very attractive odds when it comes to home run props, but based on our projections, there is value here.

Cal Quantrill allows contact at one of the highest rates in baseball, and his pitching in a park where balls that are hit go further is not a recipe for success. Quantrill allowed five runs on nine hits in five innings in his first start in Coors, and he allowed two home runs. Based on Schwarber’s success against Quantrill, the altitude, and the weather, if Schwarber makes contact, it should be long gone.

Mike Trout (LAA) +360

Mike Trout is 2nd in baseball with six home runs so far this season, and we like him to hit his 7th tonight. In seven plate appearances against Zach Eflin, Trout has one home run and one double. He has an expected slugging percentage of .802 and a 27-degree launch angle in those at-bats.

Eflin allowed three home runs in his opening start and another home run in his last start against the Angels. Who hit that home run? Mike Trout. Considering he has already homered off him this season, is playing in a dome with no weather, and is on a tear, Mike Trout is one of the best home run prop bets to make in baseball today.
