AL MVP Favorites

Aaron Judge, New York Yankees (-900)

The impending free agent outfielder slashes .293/.393/.655 and he slipped a career-high 14 sacks during that time. After injuries compromised the judge immediately after he won AL Rookie of the Year in 2017, he questioned his durability behind him and he should easily eclipse all 52 homers this season at some point. over the next two. weeks.

No one else has done enough to close the gap and the AL MVP looks destined to be the judge less than a wild September.

Shohei Ohtani, Los Angeles Angels (+500)

Shohei Ohtani is fascinating to watch whenever it is in action. Whether it’s him at the plate or on the field, there’s always a chance that something special will happen. Ohtani currently sits at 11-8 on the year with 176 strikeouts in 128 innings of work, arguably the only bright spot for the ever-disappointing Angels. After a stomach bug derailed a start against the Tigers, Ohtani returned to the Blue Jays this weekend, going nine innings on seven shutouts while allowing just two hits and a walk.

On the other side of the ball, he has a slant line of .265/.358/.516 with 28 home runs, 77 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. If anyone could mount a comeback against the judge, it’s Ohtani, but he seems more and more out of reach with each passing week.

Jose Ramirez, Cleveland Guardians (+8,500)

Even though he is a distant third on the odds table, Jose Ramirez keep hanging around. The Cleveland third baseman cuts .283/.353/.548 with 26 homers, 38 doubles, four triples and 14 stolen bases. He is second in the AL in total goals (256) and leads the junior circuit in doubles. He slowed down a bit in August, hitting .263 with five home runs and four doubles in 25 games.

NL MVP Favorites

Paul Goldschmidt, Cardinals of St. Louis (-1,450)

Goldschmidt leads MLB with a .338 batting average and could ride a batting title to MVP glory. After batting .286 in July, Goldy was on fire in August, batting .374 with nine homers in 25 games. As the Cardinals battle for playoff positioning, his solid play will remain critical to the team’s success. This recent series of otherworldly blows seemingly threw his lead out of reach in the MVP race as well.

Goldschmidt was second in voting MVP twice with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2013, 2015) and third another time (2017). He could finally break through in what is shaping up to be his best season yet.

Nolan Arenado, St. Louis Cardinals (+2,500)

Goldschmidt isn’t the only cardinal to fly high at the right time. Nolan Arenado opened August with a 10-game hitting streak where he hit .421 with six home runs and four doubles in 43 plate appearances. After a brief slump, he went 7 for 16 in three games against the Diamondbacks. Then, after a brief stint on the paternity list to welcome his son into the world, he returned to the lineup with a 4-on-4 effort on his 27th home run of the year.

Overall, Arenado cuts 0.306/0.370/0.567 while once again playing Gold Glove defense in the hot corner.

Freddie Freeman, Los Angeles Dodgers (+3,500)

Freddie FreemanHis first season with the Dodgers was a resounding success, though it didn’t earn him his second NL MVP. Freeman is second only to Goldschmidt in batting average (.326) and has been a steady addition to an already formidable lineup. His 155 wRC+ would be the second best of his career, second only to his 2020 MVP campaign of an insane 186.

Understanding MLB MVP Odds

Most sportsbooks will display odds in the US format as shown above. When Trout ran away with the MVP award in 2019, his odds had a minus (-) sign in front of the number for much of the season.

This means that a bettor in August had to wager $1,000 to win $100 betting on Trout to win MVP. Before the start of the season, almost all players will have a plus sign (+) in front of their ratings.

This means that a bettor would have profited $3,300 for a $100 bet on deGrom before the start of the season.

If US odds are not for you, just use a tool like our odds converter to change the odds to decimal or fractional format. Most online sportsbooks also give you the option to change the format of the odds you see.
