Odds to win the 2012 Home Run Derby

Jose Bautista, Blue Jays: 7/2
Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins: 4/1
Prince Fielder, Tigers: 5/1
Robinson Cano, Yankees: 11/2
Carlos Beltran, Cardinals: 11/2
Matt Kemp, Dodgers: 6/1
Mark Trumbo, Angels: 6/1
Carlos Gonzalez, Rockies: 13/2

So who's your (literal or figurative) money on?
