Can Albert Pujols cap off his stellar playing career and reach the 700 home-run mark? One oddsmaker thinks so.
Fanduel Sportsbook gives the 42-year-old Cardinals slugger -210 odds — meaning a $210 bet would win $100 — to reach the mark by the end of the 2022 regular season. The odds are +270 that he will not reach 700 by year’s end.
Entering Thursday’s game, he has clobbered 697 for his career. If he reaches 700, he’ll join Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth as the only players in major-league history to accomplish the feat.
Pujols has turned back the clock since the All-Star break, slashing .336/.393/.727 with 12 homers and 30 RBIs.
