If you’re betting on the Home Run Derby you probably need to reexamine your life choices. But if you reexamine them and nonetheless decide that you need to bet on the Home Run Derby, here are the current odds being offered:

Todd Frazier: 7/2
Kris Bryant: 5/1
Prince Fielder: 11/2
Albert Pujols: 6/1
Anthony Rizzo: 13/2
Josh Donaldson: 7/1
Joc Pederson: 7/1
Manny Machado: 7/1

I feel like the oddsmakers are selling Joc Pederson short. He may be struggling at the plate now, but he has a crazy big swing and power. Given that people are going to be throwing him 40 m.p.h. meatballs, I feel like he’ll do some damage. And Prince Fielder has won the dang thing a couple of times. I wouldn’t be shocked if he put one in the Ohio River.

Still: I agree, Frazier is the man the beat. His home park and all of his shots are bombs.
