So, the odds on the Home Run Derby have been released by venerable betting gurus Covers. Favorites for the derby include Fightin's swatting sensation Ryan Howard (+540), Big Papi (+530), Lance Berkman(+530). Underdog collars go to Jermaine Dye(+1130) and Troy Glaus (+1116).
When betting these things, it's usually not that out of the question to ride your favorite player in the bunch. Bobby Abreu proved to be a huge payday for some people last year when he was getting 20/1 odds by some books.
The best part about All Star week is the Home Run Derby flashbacks that ESPN will start running. Andro or not, McGwire's Fenway performance in '99 was one of the greatest things ever. And John Jaha's peformance that year is not to be forgotten either. Wonder how much the ball hit by JJ is worth? And I wonder if Todd McFarlane owns it?
