With less than four hours until Monday night's start of the 2019 MLB Home Run Derby, we've got a new betting favorite to win it all, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

After Pittsburgh Pirates' first baseman Josh Bell opened as Tuesday morning's betting favorite, New York Mets' first baseman Pete Alonso has now surpassed Bell atop the odds at +250.

In fact, we've seen quite a bit of movement in the odds to win this year's MLB Home Run Derby over the past 48 hours.

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder and current MLB home run leader Christian Yelich opened as the betting favorite to win the 2019 Home Run Derby. However, Yelich was replaced by Oakland Athletics' third baseman Matt Chapman (+750) due to a reported back injury.

Bell (+400) and Toronto Blue Jays rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+400) now share the second best odds to win the derby behind Alonso, with Joc Pederson (+600) and Chapman (+750) not far behind them.
