The current odds at Oddsmaker has the defending 2011 Home Run Derby champion Robison Cano of the New York Yankees as the +300 odds second favorite in the wagering. Cano leads the Yankees in hitting with a .313 average at the break with 20 home runs. He is on pace to surpass his career high of 29 homers in 2009. It will be interesting to see if Cano can remain focus with rumors of a pending $20 million dollar contract in the works for the Yankees second basemen. Receiving favoritism by the bettors is the 2012 home run leader Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays with an odds return of +250. Bautista has 27 home runs to date this season after belting 43 last year and 54 in 2010.

The 2009 Home Run Derby champion Prince Fielder is lined at +400 odds along with LA Angels second year slugger Mark Trumbo. After a slow start with a new team Fielder has heated up and has 15 home runs to date. Trumbo leads the Angels with 22 homers and 57 RBI’s. At +500 odds in the betting is LA Dodgers Matt Kemp along with St Louis Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran. It is a tough spot for Kemp having spent much of the past two months on the DL. Beltran has seen his power numbers increase with his new team and with the guidance of Mark McGwire as his hitting coach. Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies checks in at +600 odds to win the Home Run Derby on Monday night. The majority of Carlos Gonzalez’ 17 home runs have come from the hitter friendly ballpark of Coors Field in the thin Mile High air of Denver. The longest shot on the betting board is Pittsburgh Pirate outfield Andrew McCutchen who returns +800 odds for the win. The last minute replacement for Giancarlo Stanton and two time All Star has 18 home runs this season. He also leads the Pirates in batting average at .362 and RBI’s with 60.
