MLB 2017 Home Run Derby

We’re not right in the thick of the summer sports calendar as Major League Baseball pauses their season for All-Star festivities. The Home Run Derby begins tonight at 8 PM EST at Marlins Park on TBS. The All-Star game between the NL and AL will be played the following evening.

Betting Odds

We’re going to compare the odds to win the derby between our two top sportsbooks, (Full Review) and (Full Review).



Giancarlo Stanton is the chalk across most sportsbooks, but the price is a bit better at Bovada (+200) compared to BetOnline (+170). Aaron Judge is right behind him. The Yankee’s rookie slugger leads all of baseball with 30 homers. Like Stanton, he’s a better deal at Bovada (+200) compared to BetOnline (+175).

Dodgers’ rookie Cody Bellinger will look to give Stanton and Judge a run for their money. He’s priced at +650 at both betting sites and though he has cooled off in recent weeks – he still is near the top of the home run total with 25 homers.

Mike Moustakas isn’t getting quite as much talk as he might deserve. The best price for the Royals’ third basemen is +1600 at BetOnline. He’s tied with Cody Bellinger for 25 homers on the season. He’s been on fire coming into the All-Star break with the home run ball. Over the last nine games, he’s hit six homers.
