MLB futures betting, odds, predictions: Josh Donaldson of the Yankees

Betting on someone outside of Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout or Vladimir Guerrero to become MVP or lead the league in home runs feels like a stupid thing to do. But with these three guys getting so much attention in these markets, and trending picks like Byron Buxton and Wander Franco also taking money, there are bound to be some long shots that bettors can enjoy at a low price.

An insidious example—and that too is far-fetched—is in the tri-state area.

Josh Donaldson hits the most home runs (+20000)

When the Yankees switched for Josh Donaldson, the move was met with more confusion than excitement, but there’s a chance the veteran third baseman could turn out to be a prolific player in pinstripes this season. How productive? Let’s take a look.

While Donaldson’s back-of-the-card stats weren’t great last season with the Twins, he was all over the Statcast leaderboard. Donaldson ranked third in barrels per plate occurrence, fourth in average exit velocity, 24th in expected slugging percentage, and 11th in hard hit rate. Add in the fact that he’ll be batting in a lineup with Joey Gallo, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton and you could see a path to some big numbers for Donaldson in his first season in the Bronx.


Betting on the 2022 MLB season?


Donaldson’s age may be a concern, but he has played 155 games in 2019 and 135 games in 2021. So his injury history shouldn’t stop you from considering this bet at these high odds.

Donaldson, who has surpassed the 40-homer plateau only once in his career, is extremely unlikely to lead the league on home runs (that’s why he’s 200/1), but his batting records make you wonder if he’s pulling a stunner can on this market.
