BetMGM users can win $50,000 in Bonus Bets with the MLB Grand Slam Jackpot.

You’re automatically entered when you bet at least $10 on any player to hit a home run on Friday, April 19. If the player hits a grand slam, you’ll win the Bonus Bets (split among all winning entrants). The Jackpot resets on Saturday and again on Sunday, so you have three opportunities to win each weekend of the regular season.

Which player would I bet on?

Shohei Ohtani – Los Angeles Dodgers (+375)

You could search for a player with better odds, but I know who I trust if the bases are loaded for anyone this evening.

Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Shohei Ohtani is hitting the ball better than most of the league. He leads the majors with 10 doubles and 31 hits through 21 games.

According to Baseball Savant, he ranks in the 97th percentile or better in every major hitting metric.

The only thing that hasn’t happened yet is Ohtani hitting many home runs. He has four thus far, despite ranking in the 99th percentile in both expected slugging percentage and barrel rate.

The home runs could come quickly, even as soon as Friday night against the New York Mets.

According to Ballpark Pal’s projections, Ohtani has the best chance of hitting a home run of everyone on this slate. His fair odds of clubbing a homer are closer to +300.

Take advantage of the +375 price on Ohtani to jumpstart the weekend.
