Pro Baseball Futures: Trout, Judge Co-Favorites for 2021 HR Leader

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

For bettors who dig the long ball, William Hill Nevada has swung for the fences by releasing odds for 86 different players to be the 2021 MLB regular season home run leader.

Some stipulations regarding this futures market include that all teams must play 150 regular season games for action, a player must play in one regular season game for action and in the case of multiple players ending up tied for the most homers, odds will be divided by the number of players who finished in first.

Last season, it was Luke Voit who hit the most big flies. The Yankees first baseman was listed at 80/1 at William Hill, and ended up with 22 round-trippers in 56 games played.

Voit has the eighth-lowest odds this time around at William Hill, as he’s priced at 20/1. In fact, two of his teammates are at the top, as well as many of the game’s top sluggers.

Mike Trout and Aaron Judge lead the way at 12/1 apiece. Trout has actually never led the league in home runs in his storied career, whereas Judge was the home run champion in 2017. Giancarlo Stanton, Pete Alonso and Juan Soto are all next at 15/1.

Ronald Acuna Jr. and Cody Bellinger are tied for the sixth-lowest odds at 18/1 each. Right behind Voit is Fernando Tatis Jr. at 22/1. Tatis Jr. opened at 30/1 at William Hill, where one Nevada bettor placed $1,000 on him for a total potential payout of $31,000. Tatis finished second in the National League in home runs last season with 17, one shy of Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna. Ozuna sits at 60/1 with reigning AL MVP Jose Abreu and new Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado.

Two other $1,000 wagers have come in at William Hill on 2021 home run leader futures, one on Yordan Alvarez at 40/1 ($41,000 total potential payout) and the other on Corey Seager at 125/1 ($126,000 total potential payout).

Alvarez has since shifted to 25/1, where he joins Joey Gallo and Jorge Soler. Meanwhile, Seager now resides at 65/1, where he is just ahead of fellow Dodger Mookie Betts at 75/1.

A few long shots who have gotten some noticeable early action in terms of total number of tickets are Eloy Jimenez (30/1), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (80/1), Luis Robert (100/1) and Teoscar Hernandez (150/1).
