2016 MLB Regular Season Home Run Title Odds: Stanton, Trout and Harper top the charts

The oddsmakers at William Hill and other Sportsbooks were saved from having to formulate home run title odds on former Kansas City Royals and current free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes when he signed a one-year deal with the Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan. The deal is worth $2 million guaranteed, with another $1 million in incentives, and includes a mutual option, according to FOX Sports.

Gomes has played with seven teams in Major League Baseball, winning World Series titles with the Boston Red Sox in 2013 and the Kansas City Royals last season and while the intro into this 2016 Regular Season Home Run Title Odds was never going to claim Gomes had a shot to lead the Major’s in dingers this 2016 season,  it seemed fitting humor for a veteran major leaguer that is as humorous in reality as it is to believe in him contending at 35-years young.

There are safe bets on a trio of big bats this upcoming season – but all things being equal — the bottom line value of William Hill’s top three players that are projected to be the most likely to win the home run title aren’t going to bring a large return on your investment.

Giancarlo Stanton should contend for the National League HR championship crown in 2016. His big swing is capable of hitting 40 – 50 HRs if he can play a year completely healthy. Mike Trout won his 4th Silver Slugger Award and smashed 41 long balls in 2015 at the Age of 26. Bryce Harper has developed into the stud he was projected to be and his total of 41 dingers in the 2015 season is a mark he should exceed this season. If  the Washington Nationals can put capable hitters in front and behind the Nats big bat to protect him.
