2012 Home Run Derby Betting Odds

Filed under: MLB Betting Odds |

The Home Run Derby has undergone several format changes over the last decade in effort to increase the popularity and viewership of the event.

This year is no different, as two captains in both the AL and NL picked three other players to jon them on the team to go against the other.

The New York Yankees’ Robinson Cano and L.A Dodgers’ Matt Kemp were the two captains on the American League and National League respectively.

In the AL, Cano asked Prince Fielder, Mark Trumbo and Jose Bautista to join him on the team.

In the NL, Carlos Beltran, Carlos Gonzalez and Giancarlo Stanton make up the other members of the NL team.

Oddsmakers are jumping in on the action with a couple weeks until the competition, installing Bautista as the favorite to win on 2012 Home Run Derby Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook. Bautista is going off at 7/2 to win.

But the odds are pretty close together, with Stanton and Fielders not very far behind, set at 4/1 and 5/1 respectively.

But even behind the top three favorites to win the Home Run Derby, the defending champion in Cano, and then Beltran are both set with odds at 11/2.

Kemp, Trumbo and Gonzalez round out the betting odds, going off at 6/1, 6/1, and 13/2.

The 2012 Home Run Derby will be held on Monday July 9 at 8 pm ET from Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals. ESPN will be picking up the live television coverage.
