Aaron Judge is looking for his American League record-tying 61st home run on Wednesday vs. the Pirates, and yes, you can bet on it.
To be fair, yes/no home run odds have become very common in MLB betting these days, but there's never been as big of a spotlight on a single player to do so.
At BetMGM, Judge to hit a homer is the most bet option for the Yankees' game overall. It's more than the moneyline, total, runline and all other props.
So, that bets the question: Where are the best odds on Judge to hit home run No. 61 on Wednesday night?
Aaron Judge Best Home Run Odds for Wednesday
*Odds as of Wednesday afternoon
The best price for "yes" goes to DraftKings which is providing a 61% profit boost to make the odds +258. "No" is also the market leader at -220.
Most people have maximum wagers for that promotion at $10. Others have $50.
The sportsbook ran the same promotion last night for the Yankees' game against the Pirates, in which Judge to homer had a profit boost of 60% to honor of his pursuit of his 60th homer of the year.
Judge homered in the bottom of the ninth, cashing in that bet for those who wagered. He had been +1100 in the live market to hit a home run during his fifth at-bat.
The Yankees followed up Judge's leadoff homer with a walk-off grand slam by Giancarlo Stanton to nab a thrilling 9-8 win.
The next best sportsbook is PointsBet, which is also boosting Judge's home run odds.
His odds were originally +170 at the sportsbook, but it is now boosting it to +225. The under at PointsBet is -250.
FanDuel has the third-best odds at +215. Bettors there are thoroughly backing Judge to tie the record on Wednesday night — and usurp it.
Judge has 79% of the total bets and 87% of the money to hit a homer tonight. Only 21% of the bets and 13% of the money is on any other player tonight to hit a homer.
