MLB Home Run Props Picks for Tuesday, May 24th 2022

MLB Home Run Props Picks for Tuesday, May 24th 2022

There is a full slate of games on the MLB schedule today. That means plenty of opportunity for bettors. One of the areas to find those opportunities is home run props.

Homers are actually down this season compared to last. Teams are averaging 0.90 home runs per game which is down from 1.22 last year. In 2019, MLB set a number of home run records and teams averaged 1.39 homers a game.

Who will it be today? Here are the best MLB home run props for Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

Anthony Rizzo OVER 0.5 HRs (+500)

Orioles vs. Yankees Picks

Rizzo is among the MLB leaders in homers but he hasn’t hit one in his last seven games. The last time Rizzo hit a home run was on May 16. The opponent? Baltimore.

Today, the Yankees face the Orioles and starting pitcher Bruce Zimmerman. Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton get more hype than Rizzo, but he’s due for a homer and today’s the day.

Pete Alonso OVER 0.5 HRs (+450)

Mets vs. Giants Picks

Alonso is also among the MLB leaders with 11 home runs on the season. He hit one last night in the Mets’ 13-3 victory over the Giants.

Tonight, Alonso faces a tougher task as he and the Mets go up against Giants pitcher Logan Webb, who is 5-1 with a 3.54 ERA. Webb has only allowed two home runs in his eight starts this season. Alonso has hit home runs in back-to-back games this season and we'll take a chance on him tonight.

Mike Trout OVER 0.5 HRs (+300)

Rangers vs. Angels Picks

Trout is currently second in MLB with 12 homers. Only Judge (17) has more. Trout has three of his home runs against Texas, the Angels opponent tonight.

Trout will face Texas right-hander Dane Dunning. Trout faced Dunning on May 18 and hit a homer in the fourth inning of that game.

The Angels star homered last night in a win over Oakland. He’ll be back at it tonight with another dinger.

Yordan Alvarez OVER 0.5 HRs (+245)

Guardians vs. Astros Picks

It’s been five games since Alvarez hit a home run. His last one came in a 13-4 win over Boston exactly one week ago.

Tonight, Alvarez and the Astros go up against Cleveland and starting pitcher Zach Plesac. The Guardians right-hander has given up six home runs on the season. What’s interesting though is that Plesac has served up a homer in each of his last four starts.

Alvarez has hit a home run in 10 of the Astros 36 games this season. Against a pitcher that serves them up, make that 11 of 37.
