It’s not exactly a secret that Aaron Judge is having a hell of a season at the plate, but what if I told you that you can now bet on it? World Series odds are in full swing, and now you can go even more niche on your 2022 stars.
A prop is now available at BetMGM to play the over/under on Judge’s total home runs this season. With the All-Star Break in the rearview mirror, we’re now closing in on the playoffs at rapid speed, and while season special player props will always be a cult favorite, Judge potentially making history with the Yankees should titillate more than a few bettors.
In 143 games this season, Judge has smashed an incredible 60 home runs. By the All-Star Break in July, he had already gone yard 33 times, tying Roger Maris (1961) for the most of any Yankee.
The current over/under asks bettors whether they think Judge will beat Roger Maris’ Yankee record for most home runs in a full season — 61. With 60 already under his belt in 143 games, 61 homers in 2022 certainly isn’t off the table.
