It’s not exactly a secret that Aaron Judge is having a hell of a season at the plate, but what if I told you that you can now bet on it? World Series odds are in full swing, and now you can go even more niche on your 2022 stars.
A prop is now available at BetMGM to play the over/under on Judge’s total home runs this season. With the All-Star Break in the rearview mirror, we’re now closing in on the playoffs at rapid speed, and while season special player props will always be a cult favorite, Judge potentially making history with the Yankees should titillate more than a few bettors.
How Many Home Runs Does Aaron Judge Have in 2022?
In 97 games this season, Judge has smashed an incredible 39 home runs, equalling his total home run count for the entirety of 2021. By the All-Star Break a few weeks ago, he had already gone yard 33 times, tying Roger Maris (1961) for the most of any Yankee.

The current over/under asks bettors whether they think Judge will beat Roger Maris’ Yankee record for most home runs in a full season — 61. With 39 already under his belt in 97 games, 61 homers in 2022 certainly isn’t off the table.
