MLB Betting: AL and NL MVP Award Odds


Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels won the American League MVP award last season, and the 23-year-old outfielder figures to be the favorite to not only win it again this season at 1/1 odds at the sportsbooks but also for many years to come.

Trout actually hit a career-low .287 in 2014 but had a career-high 36 home runs and 111 RBI to stop Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera from winning his third consecutive AL MVP award. Cabrera is at 7/1 at Bodog to win his third AL MVP award this season.

Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu will be playing in only his second MLB season after coming over from Cuba a year ago, and he is the 4/1 second choice at Bodog to win the AL MVP while also sitting as the 15/2 favorite to hit the most home runs in baseball. Last season Abreu hit .317 with 36 home runs and 107 RBI to win AL Rookie of the Year honors.

In the National League, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw will likely have a tough time repeating as MVP at 7/1 odds at Bodog. Last season Kershaw became the first NL pitcher to win the MVP award since Bob Gibson with the Cardinals in 1968, but he could not beat Gibson’s former team in the playoffs for the second straight year with the Dodgers bowing out in the NL Division Series.

The favorite to win NL MVP at Bodog is also the second choice to hit the most home runs behind Abreu, Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins, who inked a gargantuan 13-year deal worth a record $325 million to stay with the team. Stanton is at 4/1 to win NL MVP in 2015 and he hit .288 with 37 homers and 105 RBI last season.

Stanton’s biggest challenge will be getting his Marlins to finish over the .500 mark following five straight losing years.
