Best Bet: CJ Cron To Have Most Home Runs (+9000)
Kenny Ducey: You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts.
Oh, did you expect to take the easy road here and tell you that Ezequiel Tovar at +1200 has a real chance to win Rookie of the Year? He very well may, but that’s not the biggest value on the board in my eyes.
No, I think CJ Cron has a better than the implied 1.1% chance to lead the league in homers. There are certainly some formidable names in front of him like Aaron Judge, Matt Olson, Kyle Schwarber and others, but Cron isn’t too far away from the league’s top tier when it comes to homers.
The big man has big power at 6-foot-4, 235 lbs, and gets to put it to use in the friendliest park in the league. He’s averaged right around 29 homers the last two seasons and even made his first All-Star Game last year as his career continues on an upward trajectory.
Now, Cron is 33 and there’s certainly a real chance that 2022 was his peak, and that he starts getting worse. There’s also a chance that the last two seasons are reason enough to believe he’s finally found his rhythm at the plate. He’s been a virtual lock to come in around or just under 30 homers for his past four healthy seasons, which normally puts him in the top 25 of all home run hitters.
It’s certainly a longshot, but it’s the most fun you can possibly have betting on the Colorado Rockies. Another thing to love here is the fact that Cron has played 292 of a possible 324 games over the past season, so he should be on the field to give this home run crown a real run.
