Dinger Tuesday Season Results
We took another L on our official pick last week with Bo Bichette but the Blue Jays and Red Sox combined for 6 homeruns in that game so we got our $25 back and came out even on the week. The benefit of Dinger Tuesday is that you can take a chance on a long shot in a game where you think there will be a lot of homeruns hit because you limit your liability. A $25 bettor is still up $307.50 on the season!

Dinger Tuesday Picks 5/9
Pete Alonso (+250)
Well we haven't hit a dinger in a few weeks so why not take a guy who is in the same situation and get back on track with him. Pete Alonso is the guy tonight. He's tied for 2nd in the league with 11 homeruns but he has only hit 1 homerun in over two weeks. However, he's got a nice matchup tonight against Luke Weaver. Weaver comes in with a 7.88 earned run average and he's allowed 5 homeruns in 3 starts this season. The Mets and Reds have the highest over under on the MLB slate tonight with 10 and there's a 9 mph wind blowing out. Alonso has never faced Weaver but that doesn't really bother me in this game tonight. Max Scherzer will pitch for the Mets and on Dinger Tuesday you want both pitchers to be giving up homeruns so we get the credit just in case our guy doesn't go deep. Max Scherzer was supposed to start for the Mets but he's been scratched and David Peterson will start. Peterson has allowed 6 homeruns in 3 road starts this season. I expect the ball to be flying in Cinci tonight so let's take our chances with Pete Alonso to hit one into the river!
