Home runs have returned at a rate MLB hasn't seen since the Steroid Era. The league is on pace for 5,500 dingers
-- the only two seasons to top that mark was in 1999 and 2000 when dudes like this
mysteriously belted 35 bombs. From a betting perspective, the markets have adjusted. The league is trended over the total but at a modest 51.9%. Last season, there were 41 games lined at 6 or lower. This season, there have been only 10 at the halfway point.
