If you fancy a cheeky flutter and want the best home run derby odds, you are on the right page. This is an end of season baseball event that MLB fans love.
The home run derby is an annual competition held during Major League Baseball’s (MLB) All-Star break. It features eight of the best power hitters in the game, who battle it out by attempting to hit as many home runs as possible.
The Home Run Derby is typically held on the day before the MLB All-Star Game, which usually takes place in July or August, in the USA each year. This year, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Home Run Derby was cancelled. The 2021 Home Run Derby took place in Denver, Colorado on July 13.
As with any competition, bets can be made on who will come out on top of the Home Run Derby. The odds are typically determined by how well each player has been performing throughout the season, as well as their past performance in the tournament. Previous winners are often expected to do well, as Pete Alonso proved.
For example, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton of the New York Yankees are two players that have consistently performed well in previous derbies and, therefore often have higher odds of winning. Other factors, such as weather conditions, can also affect the home run derby odds.
We look at the recent results and winners, keeping in mind the 2020 event was hit by the Covid outbreak.
Bryce Harper was the winner, as he beat Kyle Schwarber, in the final 19–18, winning the derby in front of his hometown crowd. He tied Schwarber on the last pitch as time expired in regulation; then won it with 16 seconds left in bonus time. Washington, D.C.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso defeated Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 23-22 in the final round of the 2019. Alonso took home $1 million for winning the Derby
Winner Pete Alonso of the New York Mets tied his own record for most home runs hit in the final round with 23. He also broke the record for most home runs hit in the first round with 35, surpassing Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s total of 29 from 2019
The 2022 Home Run Derby winner was Juan Soto, one of the best hitters in Major League Baseball. He added to his already-lengthy resume by winning the 2022 T-Mobile Home Run. The 23-year-old Nationals star won the 2022 MLB Home Run Derby, knocking off Mariners rookie Julio Rodríguez in the finals and preventing two-time defending champion Pete Alonso, making it a third win.
Yankees slugger Aaron Judge (2017) and Mets first baseman Pete Alonso (2019) are the only rookies to win the Home Run Derby outright, as of 2022.

Straight from the horses mouth, amazing tips that sting the bookies.
Actually, we are telling a bit of a fib there, after all, horses don’t talk, do they?
I mean come on, if the horse was talking you’d not bother racing it, you’d have it on Britains Got Talent.
Getting value for money, moving away from the 1/5 shot in a 4 horse jumps race. Do you really want to put £50 to make £10 profit and hope that one of the other horses doesn’t bring your very short priced favourite down?
Back to the serious stuff though. If the big money is on at Cheltenham for the National Hunt season and at Royal Ascot for the flat, where is the smart money going? Think of the Class 3, 4 & 5 races being held week in, week out at the minor meetings. Tracks that only serious race fans even know how to get to. You know what I’m saying here. This is the real insider info.
I’ll tell you a little story here about getting top quality info straight from the yard or the owners. An example of this was a horse called Dinkum Diamond. I was given the horse on a Friday, told it was running next week at Salisbury. I was advised to lump on this, as soon as the bookies had a price and take the best odds guaranteed price. The word I was given was ‘ this is one of the best horses Henry Candy has ever worked with’.
This horse went out to Salisbury and won easily. It was then revealed to me it was already entered into Group races for the future. I then got a call advising me of the second outing and again to take the best price. Second time out, second win. You get my drift here?
This is advice from people who know their stuff, make their money from horse racing.
Anyway, I’ve found this group of people who are former owners and very, very well connected. Last season April – October 2018, to give you an idea of this service, they achieved just shy of £4000 from around 5 or 6 bets per week. Imagine turning £1k to £10k twice in the last 3 years!
That’s not too shabby as anyone with half a brain would agree. Want more information? Then this is the link for you.
Actually, with these types of returns, forget chicken and go for steak. As I’m writing this at 10am 16th June 2019, I’ve got to show you this;
Poet’s Dawn wins….BOG @ 9/1 at York in the 16.40 Ice Co Supporting Macmillan Handicap race, yesterday. Members on this service were given one piece of advice, 1 tip and that was to get on this horse
Their words were; “Now a maturing 4yo, he should be competitive again of this mark and the choice of stable jock David Allan.
There’s a best 9/1 with Betfair and FOUR PAYING SLOTS this morning.”
Now winning by 2 lengths, beating the favourite into third, with a 15/2 starting price isn’t a bad result. Obviously, the early birds who took the 9/1 were even happier.
Now, let’s use some common sense here. These are not going to be the horses that win every race, as with all tipping services there will be losers. What we see here is the bigger odds mean that you get a better return. Had you had a £50 win bet and taken the 9/1, just think how many £50 bets at evens or 6/4 you’d need to be placing to get the same profits.
