Yasiel Puig given 6/1 odds to win Home Run Derby

LA Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig usually puts on quite a show during batting practice, which is essentially what Home Run Derby is. Puig, one of 10 competitors in Monday night's Home Run Derby at Target Field in Minnesota, was given 6/1 odds to win the event, per the folks at Bovada.

It's hard to argue with the favorite, human behemoth Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins, listed at 2/1 odds by Bovada to win the event. Joey Bautista and 2013 derby champ Yoenis Cespedes are also listed by Bovada as more likely to win than Puig, given 5/1 odds each.

The Dodgers have a terrible history in the Home Run Derby, with Hee-Seop Choi's five home runs and fifth-place finish in 2005 by far the best performance by a Dodger in the event.

The full odds from Bovada:

The 2014 Home Run Derby will begin at 5 p.m. PT on Monday, July 14, and will be televised by ESPN and will be streamed online by MLB.com.

Puig will start in the outfield for the National League in Tuesday's All-Star Game, and will be presented with his All-Star jersey along with fellow Dodgers All-Stars Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Dee Gordon before Friday night's game at Dodger Stadium.
