2012 MLB Home Run Derby: Carlos Gonzalez Faces Longest Odds

Carlos Gonzalez has 77 home runs over the last 2.5 seasons for the Colorado Rockies, but he's still not getting much respect from the oddsmakers as the 2012 MLB Home Run Derby nears. Gonzalez, who was recently selected to compete on Matt Kemp's National League squad, has the longest odds to win the derby according to Bovada.

Jose Bautista (Blue Jays)
7/2
Giancarlo Stanton (Marlins)
4/1
Prince Fielder (Tigers)
5/1
Carlos Beltran (Cardinals)
Robinson Cano (Yankees)
Mark Trumbo (Angels)
6/1
Matt Kemp (Dodgers)
6/1
Carlos Gonzalez (Rockies)


Jose Bautista leads the majors in home runs with 27, so it's no surprise the Toronto Blue Jays' slugger comes away with the best odds. The 31-year old Bautista finished with a career-high 54 homers for the Blue Jays in 2010.

Fans are also excited to watch Giancarlo Stanton take his cuts. The young outfielder has hit some tape measure shots this season for the Miami Marlins.
