Home Run Derby Free Pick

July 10, 2017

Major League Baseball has entered its All-Star Game break but that does not mean betting on baseball ends. On Monday, MLB will hold its annual Home Run Derby with the defending champion Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins the current favorite on top sportsbooks.

After the home run derby was won by a player from the American League five straight years between 2010 and 2014, Todd Frazier won in 2015 while with the National League’s Cincinnati Reds, following by Giancarlo Stanton with the Miami Marlines also of the NL in 2016.

As of Sunday night, Stanton was 3 to 2 chalk to defend his title from last year successfully. This season, Stanton is expected to be pushed by Aaron Judge the rookie phenom from the New York Yankees. Judge is currently 7 to 4 to win, which are the second best odds.

Judge is the leader in MLB in home runs thus far with 30 and already broke the Yankees record for home runs by a rookie that was held by Joe DiMaggio at 29. Judge is also second in RBIs in the American League with 66.

Stanton has hit 26 home runs this season that ties him for first in the National League with Joey Votto from the Reds and one more than Cody Bellinger the Los Angeles Dodgers rookie sensation who is also competing in the home run derby.

Bellinger has the third best odds to win the derby title at 9 to 1, while Votto will not be participating in the event. Bellinger hit a home run on Saturday for the Dodgers but it was his first in 11 games. He did not play in his first game in the majors until April 25 and in May and June had a combined 22 homers.

Other players taking part in the home run derby on Monday include Miguel Sano with the Minnesota Twins at 10 to 1; Mike Moustakas with the Kansas City Royals at 14 to 1; Gary Sanchez with the New York Yankees at 14 to 1; Justin Bour with the Miami Marlins at 14 to 1; and Charlie Blackmon with the Colorado Rockies at 20 to 1.

Within that group of players, the one with the most home runs during the regular season is Moustakas with 25.

With this free pick, we like Giancarlo Stanton to win the home run derby.
