MLB Betting: AL & NL MVP Award Odds

The Toronto Blue Jays’ Josh Donaldson has passed the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout on the updated odds to win the 2015 AL Most Valuable Player award at the online sportsbooks.

Back in early July Trout was the clear leader on the AL MVP odds at the sportsbook at 1/1, with Donaldson fifth on the list at 9/1. Entering the month of September, however, it’s now Donaldson as the 1/5 leader with Trout the 3/1 second-favorite on the list.

Donaldson has led the Blue Jays into first place in the AL East this summer, hitting .301 with 36 home runs, 108 RBI, and 102 runs scored. Trout is hitting .296 with 33 home runs, 74 RBI, and 83 runs scored for an Angels team struggling to stay in the Wild Card chase.

The Washington Nationals are having a hard time keeping pace in the National League playoff race, but Bryce Harper is still the 1/4 favorite on the NL MVP odds at Bodog; Harper is hitting .333 on the season with 31 home runs, 78 RBI, and 92 runs scored.

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ Paul Goldschmidt (7/2), the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen (10/1), and the San Francisco Giants’ Buster Posey (25/1) all trail Harper on that betting prop at the sportsbook with four weeks left in the regular season.

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 as of early April 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.

Following is a list of players challenging for the MVP in each league and their odds to win the award at Bodog . . .
