We had a first in BetSided "Daily Dinger" history on Wednesday night, as three out of the four picks all hit!

In Cincinnati, Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman went yard against the Reds, while fellow NL stud first baseman Paul Goldschmidt took one out in Milwaukee vs. the Brewers.

Meanwhile, Mike Yastremzski of the Giants also took one out against the Atlanta Braves, so all three road picks crushed in their opposing team's ballparks.

We've got a ton of afternoon baseball this Thursday with seven games on the slate and lots of good hitting weather to boot. Can we stay hot?

Here are our favorite MLB home run betting props for Thursday, June 23 with all odds via WynnBET Sportsbook or consensus.

Top Home Run Picks Today

  • Patrick Wisdom (+220) - available at WynnBET
  • Jose Ramirez (+240) - available at WynnBET
  • Jose Altuve (+450)

Patrick Wisdom (+220) - Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates

Wisdom is one of the streakiest hitters on the planet, and right now he's locked in for Chicago.

The big infielder has four hits over his last two games, including three extra base hits; two of which left the ballpark.

Jose Quintana has been solid for the Pirates this year, but still gives up around a home run per nine innings, and Wisdom has mashed vs. left-handers throughout his career with an isolated power of .228.

In ideal hitting conditions at PNC Park today, I'll back Wisdom to leave the yard for the third straight day. -- Ben Heisler

Jose Ramirez (+240) - Cleveland Guardians at Minnesota Twins

Ramirez hasn’t homered since June 10, but he has a favorable matchup on Thursday against Minnesota Twins lefty Devin Smeltzer.

Smeltzer has gotten rocked lately, allowing seven homers in his last three starts and he has a FIP (Fielding Independent Pitching) of 5.38 this season.

While Ramirez doesn’t hit from the right side as well as he does from the left, he has hit three homers in just 67 at-bats right handed this year. -- Peter Dewey

Jose Altuve (+450) - Houston Astros at New York Yankees

After a hot start in May, Altuve cooled off a bit in June. However, he hit one two nights ago against the Mets and that’s all I need to put faith in him again.

Altuve, and the Astros as a whole, always show up to play. Altuve has nine career homers against the Yankees, which is his second highest total against a non-divisional team.

I think the Astros may be able to put a little bit of pressure on the Yankees tonight, so expect Altuve to drive the bus on that. -- Donnavan Smoot
