  • Ronald Acuña Jr. (+210)
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+290)
  • Tommy Edman (+600)
  • Carlos Correa (+320)

Ronald Acuña Jr. (+210) - Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals

The Braves are piping hot, winners of 11 straight, and the hot-hitting Ronald Acuña Jr. has been a big reason why.

Acuña is hitting .311 with six homers in just 32 games this season, and the Braves are an impressive 21-11 with him in the lineup. Acuña has a fantastic matchup against the Washington Nationals and starter Josiah Gray, who has allowed 14 homers already this season.

I like several Braves hitters to go deep, but I’ll back Acuña, who is starting to find his power, hitting four homers over his last seven games. -- Peter Dewey

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+290) - Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles

Vlad's bat is heating up again, with five dingers in the month of June, including one at Detroit on Sunday to go along with two more hits.

He returns to the friendly confines of the Rogers Centre where he'll tee off against Orioles starter Kyle Bradish, who other than Reds left-hander Mike Minor (in two starts) has the highest home run per 9 inning rate allowed on the slate tonight (2.39).

While this year has been slightly different, Guerrero throughout his career is also a reverse-splits hitter, meaning he actually hits right-handers better than lefties. 11 of his 14 home runs have come against right-handers in 2022, and with Bradish's propensity to give up multiple long balls, I like Jr. to get his second home run in as many nights. -- Ben Heisler

Tommy Edman - St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

Edman isn't a crazy power hitter but he can hit from both sides of the plate and does most of his damage against righties.

Enter Mitch Keller, who has struggled with limiting the long ball in the past and is coming to play in near-100 degree weather in St. Louis on Monday. The wind should be blowing out north of 10 miles per hour so balls should be traveling all night long.

As opposed to playing cheaper options like Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt, I'll look further down the board for a .280 hitter that has shown he can hit the ball out of the yard. -- Reed Wallach

Carlos Correa - Houston Astros at Texas Rangers

Carlos Correra's bat has been on fire in the past few games. He's racked up eight hits in his last four games, and hit a home run in two of those starts. I'll back the hot streak to stay alive tonight as he and the Twins head to Seattle to take on the Mariners.

Chris Flexen gets the start for the Mariners, and he's given up 1.3 home runs per nine  innings this season, so he's certainly hittable.

I'll sprinkle on Correa to hit his sixth dinger of the season tonight. -- Iain MacMillan
