May 23 Best MLB Home Run Props

Elly De La Cruz to Hit a Home Run (+370) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Elly De La Cruz has smashed a .299 ISO and wOBA of .398 against righties this season. The switch-hitter bats lefty against righties, and he's facing Matt Waldon, a righty, who has allowed a .250 ISO and wOBA of .420 to his first 96 lefties this season.

Waldron has only struck out 19.8% of lefties and has allowed 27.7% of line drives and 26.2% of fly balls to lefties this season.

Meanwhile, De La Cruz has smacked 60.6% of hard contact against righties and has a team-leading 18.2% barrel percentage against righties this season. Let's ride De La Cruz to hit one over the wall.

Cody Bellinger to Hit a Home Run (+520) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

It'll be Darius Vines on the mound for the Braves today. Vines has allowed a .200 ISO and wOBA of .341 to his first 16 lefties this season. He's also struck out just 12.5% of those 16 lefties and has earned just 5% of swinging strikes.

While it's a small sample size, Vines, a righty, allowed a .317 ISO and wOBA of .340 to 43 lefties last season. When you put last year and this year together, he's still got ugly numbers against lefties.

He'll face Cody Bellinger of the Cubs today. Bellinger is a lefty with a .240 ISO and wOBA of .327, with only 18.2% of strikeouts against righties this season. In addition, Bellinger has limited ground balls to 26% and has hit 50.6% of fly balls with more than 40% of hard contact.

Bellinger easily has the most power against righties on the Cubs this season. Let's hope he can come through today.

Jordan Westburg to Hit a Home Run (+470) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Jordan Westburg will likely be just one of three righties in the Baltimore lineup tonight. That said, Westburg and the Orioles are in line to face Mike Clevinger of the White Sox, who has struggled way more against righties to begin the year.

Clevinger has allowed a .318 ISO and wOBA of .484 to his first 26 righties. He's also allowed more than 31% of line drives and has given up more hard contact to righties than lefties to begin the season.

Westburg is a right-handed batter who has still hit a .216 ISO and wOBA of .381 against righties this year. He's also struck out just 16.7% of the time against righties and has smacked more than 31% of line drives against righties.

We'll give Westburg a try tonight.
