2012 Home Run Derby Odds: Jose Bautista Favored

You are a degenerate gambler. Yes, you. And baseball games aren't enough for you, so you're looking for a way to gamble on exhibitions. Well, I'm certainly not going to enable that sort of behavior.

...

Oh, okay. Just a little enabling. Because over at Bovada, they have odds on who will win the 2012 Home Run Derby:

Jose Bautista - 7/2
Giancarlo Stanton - 4/1
Prince Fielder - 5/1
Robinson Cano - 11/2
Carlos Beltran - 11/2
Matt Kemp - 6/1
Mark Trumbo - 6/1
Carlos Gonzalez - 13/2

The obvious surprise: There is a mortal man who can get better odds than Giancarlo Stanton in a home-run derby. Jose Bautista has been on a tear lately, and he's not a bad bat for the guy you'd expect to lead the league in real home runs. But in an exhibition where they throw slow pitches right down the middle? Surprising.

This is also your yearly reminder that three years ago, Brandon Inge was in the Home Run Derby.
