Kris Bryant has a very important job to many as the slugger of the Colorado Rockies, but he went home Monday night before their home game vs. the San Diego Padres for an even more important job title: Soon-to-be Dad.

Bryant was put on MLB's Paternity Leave ahead of the matchup yesterday, so he was unavailable to blast one out for the Rockies in their 6-5 loss to the San Diego Padres. Between Bryant being out, and Andrés Gimenez failing to leave the yard vs. the Chicago White Sox in Cleveland for the Guardians, we're back to getting off the schneid this Tuesday.

There's no shortage of games to choose from on a 15-game evening slate, so here are our top two picks in today's "Daily Dinger" home run prop bets, with all odds coming from consensus sportsbooks.

Top Home Run Picks Today

  • Giancarlo Stanton (+230)
  • Ha-Seong Kim (+380)

Giancarlo Stanton (+290) - New York Yankees vs. Cincinnati Reds

The wind is blowing out at 13 miles per hour at Yankee Stadium, and the Yankees are facing a struggling righty in Graham Ashcraft.

The rookie has promise, but his ERA is north of 7.00 over the past month and his ERA is doubled on the road than at home. Now, he faces the best offense in baseball in New York.

Stanton has hit 17 of his 22 against righties, and I like him to pounce on Ashcraft, who has allowed right handed betters to hit .337against him. -- Reed Wallach

Ha-Seong Kim (+380) - San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies

If at first you don't succeed in your home run prop at Coors Field, try and try again.

Tonight, I'll switch sides to the Padres and back Korean star Ha-Seong Kim, expected to bat leadoff with plenty of shots against Rockies left-hander Austin Gomber.

Kim hasn't hit a ton of home runs this year, but his isolated power, or ISO against left-handers, especially on the road stands out. Away from Petco Park, Kim's ISO is .191, where league average is .130. On the road vs. left-handers, it goes even higher to .213 with a weighted on-base average of .367.

Gomber has been rocked at home this year with opponents hitting .328 against him with a .600 slugging percentage. Right-handers in particular have really crushed him, hitting .341 while slugging .667. He's also given up nine home runs, compared to just five away from home.

The conditions are once again ideal for a high scoring game; evidenced by the projected total of 11 runs on the board at WynnBET tonight. -- Ben Heisler
