Pro Baseball Futures: Three Co-Favorites for 2021 Hits Leader

Bet baseball with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

Batter up! Not only does William Hill Nevada have odds up for the 2021 MLB regular season home run leader, but you can also bet on who will finish in first in other offensive categories such as hits.

It’s a three-way tie atop the board, with DJ LeMahieu, Whit Merrifield and Trea Turner all serving as the 10/1 co-favorites. Turner led baseball with 78 hits last season, whereas LeMahieu (71) and Merrifield (70) came in fifth and sixth respectively on the leaderboard. Merrifield was the MLB hits leader for both the 2018 and 2019 regular seasons. LeMahieu was tops in batting average in 2020 at .364.

Mookie Betts and Tim Anderson are next at 12/1 apiece. The White Sox shortstop opened at 15/1, which was tied for the fifth-lowest odds with Jose Altuve, before dropping to his current price. One Nevada bettor placed $1,000 on Anderson at 15/1 for a total potential payout of $16,000.

After Altuve at 15/1 is reigning NL MVP Freddie Freeman and new Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor at 20/1 each. Freeman finished fourth in hits last season with 73, only trailing Turner, teammate Marcell Ozuna (77) and AL MVP Jose Abreu (76). Rafael Devers and Ketel Marte are both close behind at 25/1.

Seven players sit at 30/1, including Mike Trout. Trout is the 12/1 co-favorite with Aaron Judge at William Hill to be MLB’s home run king for the 2021 regular season. Other former All-Stars at that price are Charlie Blackmon, Christian Yelich, Ronald Acuna Jr., Jeff McNeil and Corey Seager as well as promising youngster Bo Bichette. Bichette was first listed at 40/1 before swinging to 30/1.

Juan Soto is next at 35/1, as he made a major jump from his original odds of 75/1. Another Nevada bettor placed $1,000 on Soto 75/1 for a total potential payout of $76,000, which is the largest potential total payout of any 2021 MLB regular season hits leader wager thus far at William Hill. The Nationals slugger is also the early leader in the clubhouse for total number of tickets in this market.

Other notable names further down the board include Fernando Tatis Jr. (40/1), Abreu (50/1), Nolan Arenado (50/1), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (50/1) and Gleyber Torres (100/1). Three are tied for the longest odds of the 69 players available to wager on, as Clint Frazier, Eric Hosmer and Trey Mancini reside at 150/1.
