The weather is now heating up as we head into June — and so is the MLB home run race for 2023!

It's no surprise that reigning home run king Aaron Judge is near the top of the MLB futures odds for long balls once again... but he's back on the IL, clearing the path to his New York counterpart to further cement his spot as the favorite — while the HR race is also starting to get a little fishy...

See who's ahead of Judge — and who else is in the race — with our latest MLB odds to win the home run title.

Latest MLB HR title analysis

6/7/2023: Reigning home run king Aaron Judge went on a tear in May, hitting a league-high 12 homers in 21 games, but he started the month on the IL... and he's now back on the IL to start off June, so he remains second in the HR race — and second on the odds board to New York Mets slugger Pete Alonso, who also continues to mash and currently leads the league with 22 bombs.

Another guy that jumped up the odds board is Marlins slugger Jorge Soler, who also hit 12 dingers in May and is now tied for fourth with 17 long balls on the year, while Fernando Tatis Jr. is also in contention despite being 11 homers behind Alonso right now — a result of playing about 20 fewer games than everyone else (due to his suspension to start the year).

Home run title trends

  • The home run title has been won by a player in the American League the past four seasons.
  • Aaron Judge’s 62 home runs in 2022 made him just the second AL player to surpass 60 home runs in a season after Roger Maris in 1961.
  • Babe Ruth holds the record for the most home run titles won by a player with 11.
  • The last player to win back-to-back home run titles was Jose Bautista in 2010 and 2011.

Understanding MLB HR title betting odds

Betting MLB home run title odds is about as simple as it gets. You are just betting which player will end the regular season with the most home runs in the MLB. HR title betting futures are usually shown in American style odds and usually look like this:

  • Mike Trout +800

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to profit $800 if Trout wins the MLB home run title. Now, most of these markets close when the season starts. But some sportsbooks may post updated odds at different points in the season, and if one player has a large lead in home runs you might see a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds:

  • Aaron Judge -110

This means that you would need to bet $110 to win $100 on Judge winning the MLB home run title. If you want to see the odds in a different format check out our odds converter tool.
