Home Run Derby Betting: Opening Matchup Odds & Picks

While we wait for the offshore sportsbooks to post home run derby betting odds for the outright winner, we can glance over the opening home run derby odds for the player matchups.  At first glance Miguel Cabrera looks like the bookmakers favorite to win the 2010 home run derby once betting lines are posted. 

Listed below are the opening numbers from Bookmaker, the current numbers at the time of post and we also edited this post to add 5 Dimes on their player props for the home run derby matchups.  It looks like the oddsmakers are in agreement with us thinking Matt Holliday doesn’t have much chance in this competition.

As for some home run derby free baseball picks lets go with rotation number 8519 David Ortiz over Matt Holliday as well as 8528 Corey Hart of the Milwaukee Brewers over Matt Holliday and #8530 Hart over Wells as well.

Rotation number 8536 Chris Young (Arizona Diamondbacks) over Hanley Ramirez looks like a solid baseball bet too at first glance.  You can bet on all these matchups as well as who will win the home run derby at Bookmaker.
