MVP and Cy Young odds make for the best MLB bets at the All-Star break

MVP and Cy Young odds make for the best MLB bets at the All-Star break | News Article by

The All-Star break is the optimal time to jump into the MLB futures markets, and two of the most popular are MVP and Cy Young winner odds for the American and National Leagues. While baseball bettors enjoy the break, here are the sport betting sites favorites for these individual honors.

American League MVP

Mike Trout, L.A. Angeles -400
Trout is a runaway odds-on-favorite to take home his third American League MVP Award, winning back in 2014 and 2016. The Halos slugger is off to an incredible first half of the schedule, bringing a league-best 67 RBIs and 28 home runs into the All-Star break. Trout is batting .301 on the year but needs a little help if he’s going to get the Angels to the postseason.

Los Angeles sits fourth in a crowded American League West and his team’s success could be the only blemish on his MVP resume in 2019. Behind Trout on the AL MVP odds board is New York’s D.J. LeMahieu at +450 and Houston’s Alex Bregman at +1,000 – both of which seemed destined for the postseason.

National League MVP

Cody Bellinger, L.A. Dodgers -125
Another Los Angeles star headlines the top team in the National League at the midway mark of the season. Bellinger is hitting .336 with 71 RBIs and 30 round trippers so far in 2019, pushing the Dodgers to the top of the National League – and the World Series futures odds. He should continue to crush it in the second half of the schedule, getting protection from the returning Corey Seager in the lineup.

Bellinger is an absolute steal at this price, sitting ahead of Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich at +140, Pittsburgh’s Josh Bell at +1,200, and Atlanta’s Freddy Freeman at +1,500. Freeman and the Braves are likely to make the cut in October, leaving the Brewers and Bucs sitting on the sidelines.

American League Cy Young

Justin Verlander, Houston Astros +125
Verlander got the nod as the starter for the 2019 MLB All-Star Game and is currently the front runner to win his second Cy Young after winning the award (and AL MVP) back in 2011. The right hander has an ERA just south of 3.00 and ranks second in strikeouts among AL pitchers with 153 Ks so far this season.

Over the past three years, Verlander has been incredible following the break with a 2.22 post-All-Star Game ERA. Chasing Verlander for the AL Cy Young is teammate Gerrit Cole at +200, Tampa Bay’s Charlie Morton at +500, and Minnesota’s Jose Berrios also at +500 odds to win.

National League Cy Young

Max Scherzer, Washington Nationals -200
The Nationals ace skipped the All-Star Game due to back tightness and heads into the second half of the calendar with a 2.30 ERA and a 10-3 record on a ho-hum Washington squad. The righty has 181 strikeouts and has limited opposing hitters to a slender .215 BA against.

The odds would appear Mad Max has the Cy Young locked up but he has faded a bit in the second half of the season, with a 2.92 ERA post-break over the past three summers. He doesn’t get much in support from the Nats’ bats and it could be stretch to make the postseason, opening up value on Los Angeles’ Hyun-Jin Ryu at +140, Cincinnati’s Luis Castillo at +1,000, or L.A.’s Walker Buehler at +1,200.
