Best Home Run Picks Today: FanDuel‘s Dinger Tuesday

Sean Murphy +400 | Atlanta Braves vs. Oakland Athletics

Sean Murphy spent four years as a member of the Oakland Athletics before being traded to the Atlanta Braves this past offseason. He’s familiar with the ballpark, and the wind will be blowing out tonight in Oakland.

Murphy is off to a hot start in 2023, with 11 home runs and a .291 batting average. He has teed off against left-handed pitching in his limited at-bats thus far, hitting three home runs and well over .300. He will match up with former teammate J.P. Sears, who has allowed 12 home runs in 10 starts this season, tied for ninth most in MLB. Eight of those home runs have come against right-handed batters.

Murphy is platooned in the middle of the loaded Braves order. Sears and his 4.5% walk rate (top 9% in the league) will give Murphy hittable balls all night long. Expect fireworks for Murphy in his second game back in Oakland.

Jake Burger +420 | Los Angele Angels vs. Chicago White Sox

It makes all the sense in the world to target a game with Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout, especially on Dinger Tuesday. But the lethal duo are both below +300 on FanDuel and don’t offer much value. If they do hit a home run, we’ll get those in bonus bets.

The hitter to target in this game is Jake Burger. Burger is a power-hitting righty that has already set his career high in home runs with 10. He hits left-handed pitching much better, with a .273 batting average and three home runs. He gives the bottom of the White Sox order power and a threat to go yard in any at-bat.

Burger will go up against left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson. Anderson was electric last season for the Los Angeles Dodgers and jumped shipped in the offseason to the Angels. He hasn’t found his groove yet, as he has a 4.81 ERA and is allowing right-handed batters to hit for a near-.300 average.

The White Sox will load the lineup with right-handed bats to alter Anderson. Other than Eloy Jimenez, all the White Sox bats offer value for this promo. Back Burger and his 92.4% exit velocity that ranks top 10% in MLB.
