2022 MLB Home Run Derby Odds

Pete Alonso (+225) (Bet $100 to win $225)

The man everyone is tuning in to see, whether it's to three-peat or be beat, is New York Mets slugger Pete Alonso. The 27-year-old back-to-back Home Run Derby champion currently leads the majors with 74 RBI coupled with his 24 homers as he prepares to defend his crown on Monday night.

Kyle Schwarber (+300) (Bet $100 to win $300)

National League home run leader Kyle Schwarber may be Pete Alonso's biggest threat when it comes to going for a three-peat. After an injured-plagued 2019, 2020, and 2021, Schwarber has come back with a vengeance as the 29-year-old slugger has a National League-leading 28 blasts to go along with 57 RBIs following signing a 4-year, $79mil deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, last winter.

Ronald Acuna Jr. (+500) (Bet $100 to Win $500)

The defending World Series champion, Atlanta Braves star slugger Ronald Acuna Jr. has seen his power numbers dwindle this season, but that's as expected as the 24-year-old is coming off surgery that repaired a torn ACL that he suffered during the 2021 season, which also caused him to miss the opening month of this season. Regardless of his slow start, don't count out Mr. Acuna Jr.

Juan Soto (+650) (Bet $100 to Win $650)

Washington Nationals slugger Juan Soto is coming off an MVP-caliber season. However, the 23-year-old would finish second in National League MVP voting to former fellow Nationals star Bryce Harper, who, of course, now plays for the Philadelphia Phillies. Soto currently has 19 home runs and 41 RBI.

Julio Rodriguez (+1000) (Bet $100 to Win $1000)

Seattle Mariners rookie sensation Julio Rodriguez looks to make his first mark in the majors by ending Pete Alonso's seemingly unstoppable Home Run Derby dominance. The 21-year-old slugger ranks second on the team with 15 home runs and 45 runs batted in.

Jose Ramirez (+1200) (Bet $100 to win $1200)

Current American League RBI leader Cleveland Guardians star infielder Jose Ramirez has had a white-hot first half of his 2022 campaign following much trade speculation this past winter. Ramirez currently sits with 17 homers and an AL-leading 69 runs batted in.

Corey Seager (+1200) (Bet $100 to win $1200)

So far, the Texas Rangers' newest free-agent acquisition, Corey Seager, has proved to be worth the massive 10-year, $325mil deal he signed with the team last winter. Seager ranks 10th in the MLB in home runs (21) and leads the team with 51 runs batted in.

Albert Pujols (+2000) (Bet $100 to win $2000)

The 42-year-old sure-fire, future Hall of Famer doesn't have quite the laser he did in his prime, but he'll be must-watch TV when he steps up to the plate Monday evening as this may be the final time he has the world watching on a national scale as the slugger announced that 2022 will be his final season in the sport.
