MLB Home Run Bets: FanDuel ‘Dinger Tuesday’ Promo & Picks for April 16

With baseball season rolling along, fans of America’s pastime have plenty of options for MLB betting throughout the rest of the season. FanDuel Sportsbook offers a great way to wager on baseball via its Dinger Tuesday promotion. This deal, available every Tuesday, including April 16, is available for all 15 games on tap today. Just opt-in and follow the instructions below to participate.

FanDuel Dinger Tuesdays

Head over to FanDuel, and you’ll see the “Dinger Tuesdays” promo on the promotions page or once you navigate to the MLB section. The first step is opting into this promo. Once you’ve opted in, here’s how it works:

  • Place a pre-live, straight “To Hit a Home Run” wager of $25 for any player in any game (in this case, any game scheduled for Tuesday, April 16).
  • Regardless of whether the player you wager on hits a home run, you’ll receive $5 in bonus bets for each home run hit by either team in that game. For example, if you bet $25 on Red Sox outfielder Tyler O’Neill to hit a homer in tonight’s Red Sox-Guardians game, and the teams combine to hit four dingers, you’d get $20 in bonus bets from FanDuel.

O’Neill is among three players with at least seven home runs to date this season (Atlanta’s Marcell Ozuna and the Angels’ Mike Trout are the others), but a worthwhile strategy to take advantage of this promo is to make sure you’re betting on a game with a good chance to be high-scoring.

On April 16, the games with the highest Over/Unders on FanDuel include the Cubs vs. Diamondbacks (O/U 10.5), Braves vs. Astros (O/U 9.5), and Nationals vs. Dodgers (O/U 9.5). These games are also tempting because they each feature at least one heavy hitter who’s off to a strong start this year.

The Cubs’ red-hot first baseman, Michael Busch (), has homered in each of his last five games.

Ozuna () and Astros 2B Jose Altuve () are among the league leaders in HRs, and Tuesday’s game in hitter-friendly Minute Maid Park in Houston should feature plenty of offense.

In Dodgers-Nationals, LA All-Star Mookie Betts () leads a potent Dodgers lineup, one of just two in MLB that have already scored 100 runs this season.

Also, remember that even if your bet on one of those players misses, you’ll get bonus bets for every HR that gets hit in that game.
