Tight Race At The Top

Pete Alonso is favored to win the derby being that he has been the reigning champion for the last two seasons. Alonso has hit the sixth most home runs this season with 23 and has proven himself to be the best Home Run Derby Participant in recent years.

However, he could have some trouble this year with Kyle Schwarber in the field as well. Schwarber is currently second in the league for home runs hit at 28, just two behind Aaron Judge to lead the league.

Given that Alonso is the best derby participant and Schwarber is the best overall player, many can expect these two to come down to the wire.

Aside from Alonso and Schwarber, the only other player on the sports betting odds board that could have any chance would be Juan Soto. Soto is currently tied for the 15th most home runs in the league at 19, however, he has been heating up in recent games having hit at least one home run in four of his last five outings.

Overlooking The Rest

While Ronald Acuna has been one of the more explosive players in the MLB in previous seasons, he has slowed down since last season after coming off of an injury. He has just eight home runs on the season and his .433 slugging average is significantly lower than his .535 career average.

He’s also been ice cold in July with just one home run in his last 13 games.

As for Albert Pujols, he was only placed in the derby out of respect for his career being that this is his last year before he announces his retirement.
