Best Home Run Picks, MLB Picks & Predictions 6.5
There might be only eight MLB games for tonight’s slate, but, luckily for us, that means 16 teams who are on home run watch.
From there, we have identified the two best home run bets for today, detailed below. Let’s get into it.
Nolan Arenado to hit a Home Run | +340 at FanDuel
We all remember the stretch Arenado had earlier this year when he went berserk and hit a home run in five straight games, but that was a couple of weeks ago at this point. Unfortunately, he has been on somewhat of a cold streak since that stretch, as he only has one home run since 5/19.
With that said, that one home run came just a couple of days ago on 6/2, so the hope here is that Arenado goes on another heater. Maybe not the same heater as five home runs in five straight days, but we’ll settle for just one long ball tonight.
As for the game tonight, pitching for the Rangers is Martin Perez, who is definitely gettable. In 61 innings pitched so far this year, Perez has a 4.43 ERA and has given up 10 home runs. Look for Arenado to start another hot streak tonight.

Corey Seager to hit a Home Run | +430 at FanDuel
While the hope for Arenado is to start a hot streak, Seager, meanwhile, is in the midst of one himself. While 6 home runs on the year might not seem that impressive for Seager, the good news is that literally half of those have come in the past 10 games.
He is also batting an absurd .349 on the year, so isn’t as though he had been had all year by any means, it just took a little bit for the power to come.
Pitching for the Cardinals, who Seager will be going up against, is Adam Wainwright, who isn’t quite the pitcher he used to be. Wainwright has been around forever and is having a rough year so far. The 41-year-old has pitched 26 innings this year and has a 6.15 ERA while giving up 3 home runs in that stretch as well.
Seager just went yard last night, so let’s look for him to continue that hot streak tonight.
