Updated Odds for Baseball Postseason Awards

by WagerHome Blog on June 6, 2023

Summer is here, baseball has passed the one-third pole, and there are less than 100 games for each team between now and the end of the 2023 regular season.

We also have a much better idea of who has the staying power to win the American and National League MVP and Cy Young awards.

American League MVP Odds

Shohei Ohtani (-145)
Aaron Judge (+500)
Yordan Alvarez (+2000)
Mike Trout (+2500)

In the first week of June the baseball American League MVP race really is down to two players, Shohei Ohtani and Aaron Judge. And because of Ohtani’s status as a true baseball unicorn, it would take another 60 home runs from Judge to wrest the award away from the two-way star, Ohtani.

Barring injury, this is Ohtani’s award to win.

National League MVP Odds

Ronald Acuna Jr. (+110)
Freddie Freeman (+600)
Mookie Betts (+1200)
Pete Alonso (+1400)
Paul Goldschmidt (+2000)
Juan Soto (+2000)

The first place Braves are getting a great season from Ronald Acuna Jr. He has a .331 batting average, 12 home runs, and 26 stolen bases through the first weekend of June. Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman leads the National League in batting, just percentage points ahead of Acuna. Pete Alonso is the National League’s leader in baseball home runs and RBI.

American League Cy Young Odds

Shane McClanahan (+350)
Gerrit Cole (+400)
Framber Valdez (+800)
Shohei Ohtani (+900)
Kevin Gausman (+900)

When the season began Shane McClanahan was paying +1400 to win the A.L. Cy Young Award. Now the Tampa Bay ace is the favorite, with a 9-1 record and 2.02 ERA through the first weekend of June. Gerrit Cole was supposed to be at the top, and he hasn’t disappointed. The Yankees right-hander is 7-0 and coming off a dominant performance against the Dodgers.

And of course there is the indelible Shohei Ohtani, making an impact at the plate and on the mound.

National League Cy Young Odds

Spencer Strider (+190)
Zac Gallen (+240)
Clayton Kershaw (+1100)
Mitch Keller (+1200)
Logan Webb (+1800)
Zack Wheeler (+2500)

Atlanta’s Spencer Strider leads all of Major League Baseball with an incredible 113 strikeouts in just 69.2 innings. Zac Gallen of the Diamondbacks has allowed just three home runs in 13 starts, and he has Arizona tied for first in the N. L. West.

Tied with Arizona is the Dodgers, who continue to get great innings from Clayton Kershaw. The 35-year-old three-time Cy Young winner is healthy and very much in the mix for more postseason hardware.
