Albert Pujols Odds of Reaching 700 Home Runs Before the Season Ends

Albert Pujols is on absolute fire.

The MLB legend moved one step closer to the 700-home run club last night and tied a record set by Barry Bonds. The St. Louis Cardinals slugger hit home run No. 693 in the team’s 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Pujols moved three home runs closer to trying Alex Rodriguez and is only seven home runs shy of becoming the fourth player to hit at least 700 home runs.

Watch below:

It was also the 449th different pitcher he hit a home run off of, tying Barry Bonds’ record.

“I think at the end of the day you know you have to trust your work, and that’s something that I do,” the 42-year-old told reporters after the game. “I come out here, no matter where I’m playing, and continue to do my work for 22 years.”

Prior to yesterday’s homerun against the Chicago Cubs, his odds to reach 700 were at around 7%.

Currently there is a 15% chance Pujols will reach the historic milestone.

Pujols is hoping to be in the lineup today, he spoke about it after the game last night:

“I don’t think about [the different pitchers],” Pujols said, via “Hopefully, if I’m in the lineup [for Tuesday’s doubleheader], maybe I can hit another home run off someone who I haven’t faced. I do my homework, put in the work, trust the process and execute no matter who I’m facing.”

Pujos odds to hit a homerun in today’s games are up:

  • Fanduel: +560
  • Pointsbet: +500

In Albert’s last 3 games, he has averaged 1 home runs and has hit the over 66.67% of the time.

Pujols chase for 700 is definitely making baseball great again!
