If you don't currently have a BetRivers account this an amazing offer that can really help you build a bankroll for the second half of the MLB season. If you were to place this wager on Vlad Guerrero Jr in the 2019 Home Run Derby you would have absolutely cleaned up and made $91 for all the home runs he hit. Don't miss out this year, sign up with BetRivers and get in on the derby action
Alonso is the defending Home Run Derby champ and is set to defend his 2019 title on Monday night (note: there was no Home Run Derby in 2020 due to COVID-19).
William Hill is letting you back the New York Mets first baseman, boosting him from +500 to +600!
Alonso has 17 home runs on the year, and for what it’s worth, he’s dominated in live action at Coors Field, hitting three home runs in six games over his career. Of course, this is batting practice but it’s clear that his power translates to the thin air in Colorado.
BetMGM is also getting in on the Pete Alonso action by offering a Lions Boost on Alonso to hit 22+ home runs in his round one match up against Salvador Perez. In his 2019 run Alonso hit only 14 home runs in his first round appearance then worked his way up to 20 in round two, and finished with 23 in the championship round. Alonso may be a bit more comfortable this year as he is the reigning champ, also the thin air in Denver should help him hit a few extra bombs tonight.
