MLB All-Star Home Run Derby Odds and Predictions

Stanton looked Home Run Derby-ready in this one, launching solo bombs in the fifth and 11th.

The Home Run Derby airs live from Marlins Park at 7 p.m. on ESPN. CNHI Sports Boston's baseball writer, Chris Mason, is on hand to write about baseball's annual hitters showcase. Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas matches up with Sano in the four-five matchup. This year's contest is at Marlins Park in Miami.

Then with the Chicago White Sox, Sale pitched the first inning of last year's game at San Diego and allowed a two-out home run to Kris Bryant.

Bellinger's first-round opponent is Colorado's Charlie Blackmon (+2000), who has the unenviable task of potentially needing to go through all three of Bellinger, Judge and Stanton to win the derby.

For Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins slugger with 26 dingers in 2017, it's an opportunity for back-to-back titles, and to honor Jose Fernandez. He has 21 home runs through 82 games and leads the Twins in RBI with 62. Barring an injury or bad second half, Judge is in line to become only the third player in baseball history to win league MVP and Rookie of the Year honours in the same season. He leads the majors in home runs right now with 30 through 84 games while also hitting.329. "Judge is +175 and the No. 2 seed in the Derby, facing the Marlins" seventh seed Justin Bour (+1600). Stanton is the top seed and takes on Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez. Bellinger has hit.261 with 25 home runs, 58 RBI and 50 runs scored in 257 plate appearances so far this season.

Moustakas doesn't grab the headlines, but he's put together 25 home runs, good for a tie with the Astros' George Springer for second in the majors. Frazier was still with the Reds when he won it in Cincinnati two years ago. The victor of this head-to-head matchup will go on to face the victor of the Stanton vs. Sanchez matchup in the second round.
