2021 MLB Most Valuable Player Odds


What is the Most Valuable Player award?

The Most Valuable Player award is handed out in both the American and National League at the conclusion of each Major League Baseball season. The honor goes to the player normally with the best statistics, whether it is a position player or in the rare times, a pitcher.

Who will win the National League Most Valuable Player Award?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are still the class of the National League after winning the World Series behind MVP Corey Seager. Mookie Betts was last year's favorite, and enters the 2021 season as the favorite once again.

A couple of Atlanta Braves find their way onto the favorites list, including Ronald Acuna Jr. and last year's NL MVP winner Freddie Freeman. Freeman's win was the first NL first baseman to receive the award since Joey Votto in 2010.

Who will win the American League Most Valuable Player Award?

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout enters the 2021 campaign as the odds-on favorite to win the AL MVP. It's not a surprise, as Trout has won the award three times over the past seven seasons. He sees teammate Shohei Ohtani on the favorites list, while Anthony Rendon is not far behind.

Besides the Angels, the New York Yankees also see a few players near the top of the favorites list. The most notable, and player with highest odds, is Aaron Judge. DJ LeMahieu and Gleybar Torres are other Yankees to enter 2021 given odds in the top 10.
