2018 MLB Betting Odds to Win National League Cy Young Award

As the MLB season continues on, the award races continue. Read below as we highlight the pitchers with the best odds of winning the NL Cy Young award!

Max Scherzer (-200)

Already a 3X Cy Young award winner, it’s no surprise that Scherzer is right near the top of the voting yet again. He has been absolutely dominant, and on some nights, unhittable. In 154 2/3 innings of work, he has posted a 2.33 ERA, striking out 210 batters while walking 38. He has gone 15-5, one win away from tying last year’s total.

In what’s been a surprisingly trying season for the Nats, he has been a constant sign of hope. Every time he takes the mound, the team is racking up a win. He hasn’t gotten beat up on AT ALL.

Aaron Nola (+350)

In what has been a career year for the fourth-year man, the Phillies have had team success follow. Having already tied his career-high with twelve victories, he has been major for this team. Nola has gone 12-3 this year, posting a 2.37 ERA. In 148 innings of work, he has struck out 144 batters, while walking 40.

The one thing he hasn’t yet done in his career, is throw a complete game. But sooner rather than later, we should expect that to happen. As long as he’s continuing to dominate, Philly will have a chance to remain atop the NL East.

Jacob DeGrom (+450)

While a pitcher’s record certainly isn’t everything in a Cy Young race, if it looks like DeGrom’s, then well, the odds don’t look so good. This man has a 1.85 ERA after 146 1/3 innings of work. 173 strikeouts and just 33 walks. But, he hasn’t won a start in multiple months because he NEVER gets the run support that he needs. For all the great stats he’s posted this year, DeGrom has gone just 5-7.

Felix Hernandez once won a Cy Young with a 13-12 record, but DeGrom’s team in is in the cellar and look even worse whenever he takes the mound. He’s going to have a chance, but let’s hope to see him win at least one more game this year.

Jon Lester (+1000)

Quite a bit far behind the rest of the candidates, 2018 has been kind to Jon Lester. He’s posted a 12-4 record, striking out 100 batters and walking 51 in 130 2/3 innings of work. His ERA currently sits at 3.44. He’s allowed nine runs in his last ten innings of work, and gave up eight a few starts ago, taking his ERA from 2.58 to 3.14.

It’s going to be tough for him to overtake any of the three NL East candidates ahead of him, but Jon Lester does have a shot, if he’s perfect the rest of the way. Likely ends up being between Nola and Scherzer, though.

That’s a look at our updated odds to win the National League Cy Young. We will continue to monitor the odds and bring them to you here at Vegas Odds!

Updated Betting Odds Win the 2019 NBA Championship

With Free Agency basically all but over in the National Basketball Association – it’s time to take a look at the updated betting odds to win the NBA title in 2019:

Golden State Warriors (-175)

They won three out of the previous four championships. It was known they were looking to upgrade the center spot. Kyle O’Quinn? Nope. Dwight Howard? Nope. DeMarcus Cousins? Sadly, yes. They have arguably the greatest starting five in the history of the NBA now.

Once Cousins returns to the court healthy, there will be no weak link on the court. One thing the Warriors are exceptional at is working new players into their system. They have a tremendous squad, and now, they’re ready to try and make it a 3-peat.

They are undoubtedly the favorites. With the addition of Jonas Jerebko that add a stretch four, something they have lacked from the bench.

Boston Celtics (+550)

They were within a game of the NBA Finals last year, despite not having their two best players. The best thing they did this offseason, was keep the roster exactly the same. There was no change to make them better, and the roster is perfect as is.

They will have Kyrie Irving, aka “Uncle Drew” back, as well as Gordon Hayward, who only played five minutes last season. They brought Marcus Smart back, and now the talent is undeniable, as they will be East favorites for the first time since LBJ left Cleveland.

All will be well for the Boston Celtics this year. They are yet to re-sign Marcus Smart and the Kings are rumored to be offering a big contract, so that remains to be seen.

Los Angeles Lakers (+700)

They fantasized about signing LeBron all year long, and had hopes of bringing PG, DeMarcus Cousins, or possibly Kawhi Leonard to join him. Well, they got the King, but they have instead added KCP, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Michael Beasley and JaVale McGee. Just a slight difference.

This team is the clear number two now, with LeBron James to help pilot their young core into the playoffs. They don’t need Kawhi to come aboard to take them to a further level. There is great talent and guys who are game changers. LBJ will have a monster year in Hollywood.

Houston Rockets (+750)

Aside from losing Trevor Ariza, they are mostly running back last year’s team again. They have brought Clint Capela back and he’s ready for more. Melo is also joining the party. They paid Chris Paul the big bucks so that he and Hardenwill have a second opportunity to run it back.

This is a tremendously talented team and it’s great to see that losing to the Warriors didn’t break them up. They are poised for some greatness this year, but it will be tough as either they or the Lakers will have to miss out on the Western Conference Finals.

A season ago when Paul was signed by Houston, he had a bunch to say about coming up short. After coming up short in 2018 – he and his teammates are going to be incredible hungry this season. Those quotes were:

“I always say I’m the most competitive person I know, and looking at my wife she’s rolling her eyes probably, because some people may say that’s a good thing, some people may say it’s a bad thing, but I’m ultra-competitive so there’s no reason in playing unless you’re playing to win. I think Ricky Bobby said it best, ‘If you’re not first, you’re last.’ Right? Right? Straight up. We have one goal here and that’s to win.” – Chris Paul

NFC East Future Betting: 2018 Win Totals

Another week means another NFL division to look at. Today, we take through the project over/under win totals for the NFC East!

Before we start, let’s take a look at the other NFL divisions we have discussed to this point:

Eagles (10) OVER… 12-4

Coming off accomplishing the greatest feat in football, winning the Super Bowl, expectations are high for the Eagles. They are also interesting because it was backup QB Nick Foles who helped the team to the title, and now he will be replaced by Carson Wentz, who is expected to be healthy for the opening week.

Bringing back most of the core players of their offense, things are once again looking up. They have a tremendous WR corps and great depth at the RB spot. With DB’s who can pick off passes like its nothing, and linebackers who can sack the QB easily, the sky is the limit. We’re going 12-4 for Philly.

Cowboys (8) OVER… 9-7

Coming off a year where they were at Ezekiel Elliot’s mercy, they will have their star back for the whole season, and that should immediately improve them. They cut Dez Bryant, and in return, they added Tavon Austin, Deonte Thompson, and Allen Hurns to their WR corps. Whether it turns out to be an upgrade or downgrade remains to be seen.

Dallas’ pass rush has the ability to really bring the pressure, but in a lot of cases, they have shown inability to finish defensive plays. Their secondary leaves a lot to be desired, though they have a lot of potential to be better. Dak will not be leading his team to the playoffs, but to a winning record.

Giants (7) EVEN

After a very rough year last year where Eli was benched, OBJ was hurt, the they had a horrible coach with an even worse mustache, the Giants hope to have solved all of their problems. Eli is back under center, they have a capable coach in Pat Shurmur, OBJ is healthy, and they added Penn State star RB Saquon Barkley to the roster.

There are a number of big playmakers on the defense, who should be able to help things. A possible bounce back from Eli Apple, would be fantastic, as he has struggled both on and off the field the past few years. Janoris Jenkins and Landon Collins have a lot of potential. Their pass rush though has a lot to show. 7-9 sounds about right for these guys.

Redskins (6.5) UNDER… 6-10

They added Alex Smith to be their new QB, but that will not take this team to the playoffs, or even above last place in the division. The Redskins lack a good WR corps, and especially considering that new signing Paul Richardson is listed as their #1 guy. New RB Derrius Guice though should immediately improve the run game.

Smith is looking forward to the challenge in a new city.

“You’re in the weight room, you’re on the field, you’re working on what you need to work on. For me, there’s a throwing element, a moving element, running. Everything that goes into playing quarterback.” – Alex Smith

The pass rush for the Redskins is composed of older players, who do not have as much quickness or talent at this point. The return of Josh Norman should help the secondary, which will need all the assistance it can get. 6-10 is the prediction due to lack of receivers and inconsistent defense. Oh, and a coach who is a little overrated.

Betting Odds to win 2018 Bridgestone Invitational

Another week means another PGA event for us to look at. Read below for the odds of the golfers with the best odds to win the Bridgestone Invitational!

Dustin Johnson (7/1)

Life is very good for the 34-year-old. He has already made $6 million in 2018, and is the top golfer in the FedExCup rankings as well. He has finished inside the top ten on nine different occasions already.

In 2016, Johnson actually won at this course and will be looking to do it again. It really doesn’t matter where you place him, it always seems that he’ll have a good chance to not only compete, but come away victorious. It’s been that kind of year for him. Johnson talked about his 3 wins on tour this season after winning the RBC Cnadian Open:

“It takes a lot of work, and a lot of support. I’ve got a great family, with a lot of support from them and then obviously a great team to help me to get to where I’m at.”

Rory McIlroy (10/1)

2018 hasn’t been too kind to McIlroy, who is currently the 24th ranked golfer in the FedExCup rankings, but he’s still chugging on. He did pick up a win here back in 2014, and will be hoping to repeat that magic in this same event.

His only win thus far has been at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, after not winning any events in 2017. Nevertheless, when you’re among the best known in your sport, there will always be a chance at victory. The case remains the same for McIlroy, who will certainly have a shot.

Tiger Woods (12/1)

This is the first year since 2015 that Tiger been on tour and competitive, though he is just the 47th best golfer in the FedExCup rankings. He had a big opportunity at the British Open a few weeks ago, but couldn’t seal the deal. On the final hole, he just fell apart at the seams.

He hasn’t been able to win anything this year, but he had a second-place finish at the Valspar Championship. The ability of Tiger Woods to sometimes come out of nowhere and earn a win is still something which can happen. It’s always fun when you’re able to bet on one of the best of all-time, even at his old age.

Justin Rose (12/1)

The 37-year-old has been a stud this year, as he is #3 in the FedExCup rankings, and has won twice this year already. He finished second at the Open recently, while winning at Fort Worth, and the World Golf Championships. He’s finished inside of the top ten in eight different occasions.

As far as Rose’s odds at this event go, being tied for the third best, is not bad. Dustin Johnson will most definitely be his biggest competition for this opportunity, but there will be a chance for him to earn the win.

Big 12 Conference Betting Odds to win

As we’ve been previewing conferences over the past few weeks, up next is the Big 12. Read below as we highlight the favorites to win it in 2018!

Oklahoma Sooners (+150)

Though Baker Mayfield is gone and off to play in Cleveland, Oklahoma is still in very good standing as we look ahead to the 2018 season.

They will be turning to Kyler Murray to be their new starting QB, who completed 18 of 21 passes for 359 yards + 3 TD’s in limited action last year. The rising junior will definitely be ready for the challenge, especially with a coach as good as Lincoln Riley.

Rodney Anderson and Marquise Brown, the top offensive playmakers, are both back in the fold, and they should be more than okay. Big things for the Sooners are coming.

Texas Longhorns (+350)

Last year was not a good year for the Longhorns, as they struggled to a 7-6 record under Tom Herman. They did not get particularly strong play from any offensive players, and had two QB’s fighting for the starting job all season.

Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger were both very mediocre in 2017, and in order for them to compete this year, one of them has to be named as the defined starter.

Ehlinger actually lead the team in rushing yards a year ago, with just 381 yards. That stat sums up how Texas performed a year ago. Improve the D, and allow one QB to lead, that is the recipe for their success.

Oklahoma State Cowboys (+500)

They are saying goodbye to Mason Rudolph after a few dominant seasons in a row as he is off to the NFL. Running back Justice Hill, who was an absolute beast on the field last year will be back in the fold.

Their top two receivers are also gone, in James Washington and Marcus Ateman, so some of their younger guys will be asked to step up. Mike Gundy has been one of college football’s better coaches in recent years, so this should help their cause. 

Washington is going to be missed. His effort on a daily basis and his athleticism were huge for the Cowboys. Washington was asked about his potential in the NFL, and he is what he had to say.

“Growing up on a farm, it takes a lot of hard work and effort,” he said. “That’s where I get it on the field from. My mom brings the faith and the dedication of things to me as well. I can remember waking up at 6:30 in the morning and my dad stopping at the convenience store grabbing coffee and asking me, ‘If you want something to eat, better grab something now because we won’t be back from a while.’ I grabbed like a bag of chips and was good with it. That really set my tone in wanting to work hard.” – James Washington

In order to compete next year, they will need big things from Taylor Cornelius as he takes over as starting QB.

West Virginia Mountaineers (+600)

Things are looking up for the Mountaineers, as they will have another year with ex-Gators QB, Will Grier, who was sensational a season ago. The running game last year was very impressive, as it featured Justin Crawford and Kennedy McKoy.

They had a number of big-time wide receivers who will be coming back for another season, and this West Virginia Squad is looking to take names in 2018. Though they are projected to finish fourth in the conference, they are the only team coming in with a proven starting college QB next season.

The chance to show how good they are and can be will come next year. Will they be ready?

TCU Horned Frogs (+800)

After going 11-3 a year ago and finishing 9-2 in their conference, the expectations are high for the Horned Frogs. However, they lost their QB Kenny Hill, and their top RB Kyle Hicks. These are two guys that are tough to replace.

Darius Anderson will be back as the team’s new top RB, but they will also be without top pass-rusher Mat Boesen. Ben Banogu, who had 8.5 sacks last year will be back however.

The pressure is on for these guys, who will be replacing many starters.

Those are the FIVE favorites to take the cake in the Big 12 Conference during the 2018 College Football season!

Updated Betting Odds to Win the 2019 NFL Super Bowl

With the NFL Draft now complete, we take a look at the teams with the best NFL odds to win next year’s Super Bowl!

New England Patriots Betting Odds (6.5/1)

As long as Tom Brady is still their QB, this team will always be considered Super Bowl favorites. Fresh off a loss to the Eagles, they are ready to bounce back.

They made a few changes at wide receiver and will be getting back Julian Edelman as well, which is bound to bolster their offense. All will be well for Bill’s team.

The return of Gronk should all but seal this team as the league’s premier squad. It is too hard to not pick them as favorites.

Philadelphia Eagles Betting Odds (8/1)

Carson Wentz will be back for the opening week and this should only make the team better. As good as Nick Foles was, the team will only improve. They have a fantastic receiving corps, and are very well coached.

The reigning NFL champions should be back and ready to try and defend their first ever SB title. They really do not have any glaring weaknesses and will be in full form in the opening weeks.

Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Odds (8.5/1)

If they were in the NFC, the Steelers would probably have made it to a Super Bowl by now. They just cannot escape the Patriots, and well, last year, it was the Jaguars who got the best of them.

Big Ben is back for another year the 3 B’s are still leading a very dominant offense. Though he is not able to physically be on the field, Ryan Shazier is with the team in spirit and his energy is infectious. The biggest issue going on with the Steelers is the signing of Le’Veon Bell for the future. Head Coach Mike Tomlin had the following to say:

“We want to get a deal done, he wants to get a deal done. Everybody has said that. Now it’s just about the negotiators getting into a room and doing what it is they need to do. I’m excited and hopeful. Hopefully we’ll have some exciting news before Monday.”

They should be able to make it back to the AFC Championship this year.

Los Angeles Rams Betting Odds (11/1)

The LA Rams took the league by surprise with their strong beginning to last season. With young head coach Sean McVay and QB Jared Goff, they were fantastic from the outset.

Todd Gurley returned to his elite form, and they found a few wide receivers to make a major difference.

They opted to let Sammy Watkins walk, a move we will see if they regret. The youngest head coach in the league should be ready to take them to the second round of the playoffs.

Minnesota Vikings Betting Odds (11/1)

Coming off an incredible season, this team only improved, adding Kirk Cousins to be their new QB. They will be getting Dalvin Cook back, with a WR corps that is ready to absolutely tear it up.

The Vikings defense has been playing with a lot of heart and is poised to dominate once again next year. With playmakers across their secondary as well as up front, they are really not lacking in many areas.

Betting Odds and Predictions to win UFC on Fox 30

With the UFC on FOX 30 taking place this weekend, there’s no better time to deliver the betting odds to a few of the fights taking place.  We are pretty excited about this slate of fights from the world of MMA. Read below for more!

Dustin Poirier (-155) vs. Eddie Alvarez (+135)

29-year-old Dustin Poirier has had a tremendous career to date. He’s already earned 23 wins, and lost only five times. He’s won his last two fights, including defeating Justin Gaethje on April 14th. He’s fresh and ready, just a few months removed from his last bout, in search of win #24.

Eddie Alvarez is also a powerhouse fighter, as he’s gone 29-5 thus far in his career. Like his opponent, he also defeated Justin Gaethje in his last night, which was back on December 2. He’s landed 42% of his strikes, and will be looking to improve that total in this fight.

PREDICTION: Poirier will earn his 24th victory as he knocks out Alvarez. In the second round, he will win off an RKO. We like the favorite here.

Jeremy Stephens (+105) vs. Jose Aldo (-125)

Stephens has been busy in his career, about to register his 43rd fight. The 32-year-old comes into this with a three-match winning streak, most recently beating Josh Emmett on February 24. He’s landed 40% of his career strikes. Stephens is known for his stick-to-itiveness.

His opponent, Jose Aldo, has also picked up 28 wins, but has lost just four fights, and so, he has been more consistent in the ring. Interestingly enough, Aldo began his career 27-1, but has lost three out of his last four fights, and will have his work cut out for him in this fight. He lands 45% of his strikes and is an aggressive fighter, however. Stephens had the quote of the media session when he was asked about Jose Aldo. His response:

“Who the F— is that guy?”

PREDICTION: Jeremy Stephens will earn the victory, sending Aldo to a fourth loss in five fights. By decision is the way Stephens will get the win. Bet the underdog!

Austin Arnett (+315) vs. Hakeem Dawodu (-380)

The 26-year-old Arnett will be fighting for the 20th time in his pro career in this one. He has lost his last two fights and will be looking to get back into the win column. He has landed just 32% of his strikes, a figure that will need monumental improvement for him to have a chance.

Hakeem Dawodu, on the other hand, has won seven fights but took his first career loss via the first-round submission against Danny Henry on March 17. He landed all of his strikes in that fight, and will be looking to continue with that accuracy,

PREDICTION: Austin Arnett will earn his sixteenth win and snap out of his little skid. A third-round TKO should do the trick. This is a great upset pick!

Betting Odds to win 2018 RBC Canadian Open

After all the excitement at the Open Championship, it’s time to move North of the border. Another week means another golf tournament to preview. On tap today is the RBC Canadian Open. Read below for more!

Dustin Johnson (15-2)

The best golfer in the FedExCup rankings this year, Johnson struggled mightily over the weekend at the British Open. He was actually cut early, and now he’s got a chance to rebound quickly. With two wins on his plate in 2018 thus far, he should be able to put it behind him.

He hasn’t had too much success at RBC in the past, but seeing as to how he is ranked as the top golfer right now, that shouldn’t matter too much. Watch out for Dustin, who should be ready to go, and earn another victory.

Dustin Johnson had a strategy going into the Open Championship. But, that strategy did not last longer than two days before he was cut. This is what Dustin Johnson had in mind:

“I’m kind of in the middle,” he said. “I feel like it’s gone pretty well. I feel like I’ve played really well. I’ve played consistently well. To me, the only part of my game where I feel like I’m struggling a little bit is with the putter, but I don’t feel like I’m struggling putting. I feel like I’m putting it well and rolling it good. I just haven’t really made a lot of putts. There’s been quite a few tournaments where, if I just putt pretty well on the weekend, then, you know, I win.”

Brooks Koepka (25-2)

Koepka didn’t finish too hot at the British Open either, ending up tied for 39th. He is the thirteenth best golfer this year according to the rankings, and has three finishes inside of the top 10. His only win took place at the US Open.

Koepka, 28 years old, is in search of his 4th career PGA tour victory in this event. There will be, as always, plenty of tough competition. However, Koepka will certainly have his opportunities on this course.

Tommy Fleetwood (17-1)

The 28-year-old Englishman is just starting to take off. He finished second at the US Open, and fourth at the Honda Classic. This is already the first year of his career with over $1 million in earnings, and there are still five months left in 2018.

He was still getting cut from just about all the events as recently as 2016, and so, the golfing life has been being good to him. It’s the first year he is ranked in the FedExCup standings, as he is currently ranked as the 33rd best. All of his career victories were international, but if he keeps at it, he’ll have a PGA Tour victory to show for very soon.

Bubba Watson (21-1)

With three wins to his name this year, Watson is currently ranked 4th in the FedExCup standings. Though he got cut from the British Open, there will be plenty of opportunities for him to succeed at this event. None of his best finish in the past four years have come here, but this year may well be different.

One of the best golfers in the world, there is always a chance for Watson to earn a win. Starting off strong will be important for him, as well as keeping his composure. He can get himself out of almost any situation, and if he stays on course, he’ll have his 13th PGA victory.

With all the excitement following last week, and the buildup for the PGA Championship coming up in St. Louis, this is an overlooked event. There are some great names in the field, and we expect some great golf!

NCAA Football: Updated Betting Odds to win Big Ten Conference

The 2018 NCAA Football season is right around the corner. Take a look at some of the betting odds to come out of the Big Ten in 2018!

Before doing so, take a look at some of our other College Football Betting Odds:

Ohio State Buckeyes (+600)

JK Dobbins is about to set records next season. The running game for the Buckeyes is among the nation’s best. They are also bringing in four-star RB Master Teague.

The defense will be further bolstered next year by the addition of 5-star (#21) prospect Tyreke Johnson, who will be fantastic at the safety spot. In all, three top 100 prospects are coming to join the Buckeyes to help them out.

They will have a new QB next year, likely being Dwayne Haskins. He had 4 TD’s and 1 INT in limited action with 565 yards a year ago. A bet on the Buckeyes is a bet that Urban Meyer will get this team far next year.

Michigan Wolverines (+600)

This group last season, was the worst coached Jim Harbaugh team since his final year in San Francisco. They finished 8-5, and all three of their starting QB’s struggled. Without a good defense, they would have had a losing record.

The running game is what helped the offense when they actually showed efficiency, as Karan Higdon should be back for his senior season. Their leading receiver had just 307 yards, and so work will need to be done to improve the team.

Michigan is lucky to have a coach who can be their biggest asset. A bet on the Wolverines is a bet on a major turnaround and improvement in QB play.

Coach Harbaugh was asked about his team and he had some interesting comments to make.

” We are a rejuvanted team. We are ready for the challenge to compete for a Big Ten title in 2018″

Michigan State Spartans (+1000)

The Spartans were solid, but nothing out of the ordinary in 2017. They are coming in with great odds to make some serious noise in 2018 though.

They are adding a pair of four-star recruits to the roster, who will help to improve the talent level that they bost. Most importantly, QB Brian Lewerke is coming back for another season after a decent campaign a year ago.

This team will need a big season from LJ Scott in order to truly compete. He will be the lead back next season. A bet on MSU is a bet on Mark Dantonio and the squad turning it around in a big way.

Purdue Boilermakers (+2500)

The Boilermakers are coming off a rough 7-6 season and will have some things they will have to work on going into next season. They will be returning their QB Elijah Sindelar, who was very efficient a year ago.

Six different players had a rushing TD for this team a year ago and while this is good, they need to find a lead running back from the pack. There is also a lot to be desired from the very eh level of play from their wide receivers.

A bet on Purdue is a bet that their strong defense will get even better next year, while the offense scores more.

2018 Major League Baseball: Odds to win American League MVP

Yesterday, we gave you the NL MVP candidates, and today we’ll be going over the AL. Read below for more!

  • Before we get started, if you are interested in the NL MVP betting odds – you most likely are interested in reading about the MLB World Series Betting Odds as well.

Mike Trout (-150)

Already a 2X MVP and a top-5 vote getter for the award for six straight years, nothing has slowed this man down. He has shown tremendous base-stealing ability, home-run hitting, and a great eye at the plate. This year, Trout is batting .310 with a .454 OBP (!!), and has hit 25 HR’s and driven in 50 runs. He is 15-16 on stolen base attempts.

The one knock on Trout is the fact that his team continues to miss the postseason, no matter how well he performs. This won’t have an implication on whether or not he wins the award, but it’s something he has to fix. TAKE LA to the playoffs Trout! He is likely to finish the year as a top-three candidate.

JD Martinez (+275)

Mike Trout has some serious competition, as Martinez is outdoing him in just about every category. The first year Red Sox DH hit 29 HR’s, while driving in 80 runs in the first half of the season. At the same time, he recorded 116 hits (12 more than Trout), and has a .328 batting average. He helped the Sox to an MLB record 68 wins before the All Star Break.

There is hardly anything he could be doing better right now, as he is making a serious case for his first MVP Award.

Mookie Betts (+300)

It’s been another sensational year for Mookie Betts, as he is batting .359, with a .448 on base percentage. He’s hit 23 HR’s, while driving in 51 runs. He just got voted to his third straight All Star Game, and he’s stolen 18 bases in 20 attempts. He’s been a dynamic presence in the field as well.

Still just 25 years of age, Betts is still just getting started. He finished a close second in award voting in 2016, before finishing sixth last year. The only knock on him, and it’s not saying much, is his lack of RBI’s. He’s in the same boat there however, as Trout.

Jose Ramirez (+800)

Jose has come out of almost nowhere this year to have a tremendous season. Yes he was an All Star a year ago, but he’s batting over .300 for a third straight year, and has already tied his career-high for HR’s in a season, hitting 29 before the break. His strong play has helped th Indians to stay atop their division.

We’re also in an age where stolen bases are less and less common, and Ramirez has nabbed 20 for the second time in his career. He will continue as a prime candidate for the award as the season goes on, as the AL has produced some tremendous candidates this year.
