Our Picks To Win HR Derby

This year’s Home Run Derby is set to be one for the ages, especially as it takes place in the best hitting stadium and environment in the league. Coors Field is notable for being a “cheat code” for runs in MLB games, as they are routinely the highest totals when the Rockies are at home. This year for the Home Run Derby, the contest takes place at that very stadium in Denver, Colorado. Expect to see some insane home runs, as some hitters look to come close to hitting the next 500-foot home run.

This also makes for an awesome betting environment as well, as many hitters will have a chance to blast home runs all night and it becomes a true battle of stamina. Here are our betting picks for the 2021 Home Run Derby, with odds from various sportsbooks. Get the best prices to maximize your return.

Ohtani of course is a cheat code of his own, as the best athlete in baseball and one of the most versatile players we have ever seen. He leads baseball in home runs, and is an incredible athlete that could withstand the thinner air in Colorado.

Story has played his entire career in Colorado, which gives him a slight edge here for multiple reasons. For one, having the home crowd could help him…but realistically he is the player that is most used to the thinner air of anyone in the contest. 6/1 is too long of odds, and he is worth wagering on.
