There are just too many players and possibilities to cover in one story, but I do have three players worth a bet who provide value and could end up winning this future foray.
The Milwaukee Brewers' Ryan Braun led the NL last year with 41 home runs and the right-handed hitter has nine so far this season. He is listed at 12-1 in Las Vegas' largest sportsbook and may be worth a look at that price, although I'll pass on him, as I usually lean to a player from the AL to win this.
The Colorado Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez (11 home runs), although in the NL, is now listed at 30-1. With a fantastic swing and the altitude in Denver, he could end up the MLB leader. And at 30-1, a small $5 bet (the minimum) would pay its backers $150.
The Angels slugger I hinted at earlier is Mark Trumbo (10 home runs), and at 20-1, he is also worth at least a small bet in my mind. The right-handed hitter doesn't get nearly the attention (or the money) that teammates Trout, Pujols or Hamilton do, he but can make a run at this—especially if his team starts playing a little better.
White Sox left-handed monster Adam Dunn (11), four behind the current leader Davis, can reward his backers at 15-1. He looks like he's trying to go deep on every at-bat.
To recap, "The Field" (12-1), Encarnacion (12-1), Dunn (15-1), Trumbo (20-1) and Gonzalez (30-1) are my five best bets. If you choose to back any of these or your own, good luck.
