Best Home Run Prop Bets | Monday, April 8th

Bryce Harper of Phillies passes home run prop bets

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.

We hit three home run props last week, so it’s only right that we start this week hot. Today’s matchups have some juicy splits, so let’s dive into home run prop bets.

We have one goal, and that is to stay hot and cash more props. Here are our best home run prop bets for Friday’s MLB slate.

Best Home Run Prop Bets – MLB Free HR Props Picks

Marcell Ozuna (ATL) +370

Marcell Ozuna hit 40 home runs last season, so it’s no surprise to see the slugger sitting near the top of the MLB with four home runs already this season. He’s sitting at a .400 isolated power this season, which is unsustainable over the course of the year but showcases how well he is hitting the baseball right now.

Tonight, he has a matchup he’s feasted on throughout his career. Ozuna has 55 plate appearances against Julio Teheran, and he’s batting .354 with four home runs. In limited action last season, Teheran allowed 13 home runs in just over 71 innings of work.

With Teheran susceptible to the long ball and Ozuna one of the best sluggers in the game right now, backing Ozuna to go yard is a no-brainer. The conditions should be great as well at Truist Park, and all things considered, this is one of the best home run prop bets on the board today.

Bryce Harper (PHI) +300

Miles Mikolas allowed the 12th most home runs in the Majors last year, so we are targeting him to allow a long ball tonight at home. 15 of the home runs he allowed came against left-handed batters, so we are backing lefty Bryce Harper to hit one tonight.

Harper had a three-home run game on April 2nd for his only three home runs so far this season, but this is a great matchup for him to go yard again. Harper has a home run in 16 career plate appearances against Mikolas.

Mikolas allowed the most home runs off his sinker last season, and Harper has a nine run value against sinkers, hitting them hard 46.5% of the time. Based on the matchup, Harper is one of the best home run prop bets to make today.
