American League MVP Odds

  • Mike Trout (LAA) 1/8
  • Nelson Cruz (BAL) 8/1
  • Jose Abreu (CHW) 8/1
  • Miguel Cabrera (DET) 8/1
  • Robinson Cano (SEA) 15/1
  • Felix Hernandez (SEA) 20/1
  • Jose Bautista (TOR) 20/1
  • Michael Brantley (CLE) 20/1
  • Josh Donaldson (OAK) 20/1
  • Albert Pujols (LAA) 30/1
  • David Ortiz (BOS) 30/1
  • Brandon Moss (OAK) 30/1
  • Edwin Encarnacion (TOR) 40/1
  • Scott Kazmir (OAK) 40/1
  • Victor Martinez (DET) 50/1

Mike Trout, of course, is heading to win his first MVP award as he has been dominant as it can be in the American League and with his team heading to the postseason after winning the AL West. He’s only on his third full season in the majors and has a lot to offer in the upcoming season, but I don’t see anybody taking this prize away from him.

National League MVP Odds

  • Giancarlo Stanton (MIA) 5/4
  • Clayton Kershaw LAD (9/5)
  • Andrew McCutchen PIT(9-1)
  • Paul Goldschmidt (ARZ) 12/1
  • Freddie Freeman (ATL) 15/1
  • Jonathan Lucroy (MIL) 15/1
  • Yasiel Puig (LAD) 15/1
  • Carlos Gomez (MIL) 20/1
  • Justin Upton (ATL) 20/1
  • Buster Posey (SF) 25/1
  • Charlie Blackmon (COL) 25/1
  • Anthony Rizzo (CHC) 30/1
  • David Wright (NYM) 60/1
  • Chase Utley (PHI) 60/1

Clayton Kershaw has been outstanding despite missing two months of the season, and he should be the MVP for National League, but there’s a good chance that won’t happen because after all Giancarlo Stanton is the main reason the Miami Marlins were relevant this season.  He averaged .287/.395/.554 entering September and with the second-most home runs (37) and RBIs (105) in baseball.
