The wait has come to a merciful end for fans of MLB betting in Toronto, Montreal and around the world.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is slated to play in his first regular-season game for the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night in what might be the most anticipated MLB debut since Bryce Harper.

We all knew it was just a matter of time, but Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo made it official earlier this week, as the international media has already dubbed this “Vlad Jr. Day”.

It’s rare that the son of a legendary player like the original Vlad is seen to hold as much potential if not more than his father. But as the tweet below shows, there’s certainly a case to be made.

So with all this excitement, what do the oddsmakers have to say about the start of Guerrero Jr.’s MLB journey?

Vlad Guerrero Jr. Odds for Rookie Year

It says a lot about the level of hype surrounding Vlad Jr. that there are already several player betting markets based on his first few weeks and first overall year of his MLB career.

The over/under for plate appearances until he gets his first hit is currently set at 2.5, with Over having odds of -124 and Under have odds of +100.

His first home run over/under is set at 12.5 plate appearances with Over listed at +110 odds and Under at -137.

What does this mean? It means sportsbooks, and you can check out the latest MLB odds here are fully expecting Guerrero Jr. to make a serious immediate impact on his team despite being so young and inexperienced at the Major League level.

That’s backed up by a slew of other markets including the following:

  • Vlad Guerrero Jr. to hit 2 or more home runs in first career game: +2500
  • Vlad Guerrero Jr. to hit a home run in first career plate appearance: +1350
  • Vlad Guerrero Jr. to record a hit in first career plate appearance: Yes (+235) No (-305)

When and Where Can You Watch Vlad Jr.’s Debut

The fun starts tonight at 7 pm ET at Rogers Centre and will be broadcast on MLB Network.

If you don’t have access to a television it’s been reported that Guerrero Jr. will be tonight’s MLB Twitter Hitter, meaning all of his at bats will be live streamed on the official MLB Twitter account.
