Best Home Run Picks for Wednesday, April 20

  • Bryce Harper (+230)
  • Cody Bellinger (+450)
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+260)
  • Bo Bichette (+550)
  • Trevor Story (+500)

Bryce Harper (+230) - Philadelphia Phillies vs. Colorado Rockies

Bryce Harper and the Phillies wrap up their series at Home Run Paradise, Coors Field, against the Colorado Rockies this afternoon.

The Rockies are sending last year’s All-Star German Marquez to the mound in this one, but Harper has fared well against him in his career, hitting .385 in 13 at-bats and registering a .467 on-base percentage. Harper has never taken Marquez deep, but he clearly sees the ball well against him.

For what it's worth, Marquez allowed 21 homers in 32 starts last season and has already given up a long ball in 2022. I think Harper is a solid pick to go deep tonight. -- Peter Dewey

Cody Bellinger (+450) - Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Bellinger has hit several rockets against the Braves during their series so far; one of which left the yard at 107.3 mph against Jackson Stephens on Monday night.

Via MLB Statcast, the last four balls put in play by Bellinger have been 95.3 mph (349 feet), 107.3 mph (402 feet), 101.9 mph (324 feet), and 96.4 mph (22 feet, stopped down the line by Matt Olson at first base).

Charlie Morton takes the bump for Atlanta today, and while he's been decent at keeping the ball down over his career, he has given up plenty of hard contact this year; especially on the pitch that's supposed to induce ground balls; his sinker. Hitters are teeing off on it this year, and Bellinger has shown that he can leave the yard even without much launch angle.

I'll back Belly at home on getaway day with gorgeous weather in L.A. -- Ben Heisler

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+260) - Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox

Guerrero Jr. is the best home run hitter in all of baseball and I am backing him tonight.

He’ll be going up against Nick PIvetta, who’s given up three home runs already this season. With +270 odds, Guerrero still has value as a home run play and is one of the best options if you want to sprinkle on a fun prop tonight. Pivetta has an ERA of 9.39 right now.

This is a match made in heaven for Guerrero. -- Donnavan Smoot

Bo Bichette (+500) - Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox

It's time for Bo Bichette to shake off the rust and get his bat going a little bit. He only has one home run on the season, and has an uncharacteristic .204 batting average. I can't see that keeping up, and I think he's going to round into form sooner rather than later.

What better time to do it then when he's facing Nick Pivetta, who has already given up three home runs in only 7.2 innings pitched so far this season.

Go Bo Go. -- Iain MacMillan

Trevor Story (+500) - Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox big free agent acquisition only has one dinger on the year, but will be matched up against Jose Berrios, who is prone to the long ball.

He has a home run to fly ball ratio north of 12% over his career and Story's price has drifted too wide.

Let's bank on some positive regression. -- Reed Wallach
