Up to Date American League Most Valuable Player Odds

We have moved on to the second half of the Major League Baseball season. The American League Most Valuable Player looks to be the one major award in Major League Baseball that is all but over. One man is running away with the award at this point. But, there are still odds, and players still with a chance to win the award. Let’s take a look at the most up-to-date American League Most Valuable Player Odds.

Shohei Ohtani -800

The biggest story of the season is Shohei Ohtani. Not just because he has had an incredible season, but where he will play in 2024 has trumped that. Ohtani is a once-in-a-lifetime player. He is one of the best pitchers on the mound and has been just an incredible bat for the Angels. The problem is – the Angels are not winning. Ohtani is doing his work, as he leads all of Major League Baseball with 33 home runs and is one of the top RBI guys with 72. Ohtani is hitting .302 as well.

The -800 odds are almost unheard of for the middle of July. That means if someone wanted to take Ohtani to win this award, as of today, to win $100, they would have to wager $800. That’s a hefty price, and one that oddsmakers are pretty much locked into Ohtani winning this award. Will he stay in the American League at the trade deadline?

Corey Seager +1600

The problem with Seager and his chances at winning this award – he hasn’t even been the best offensive player on his team. The Texas Rangers are absolutely loaded with talent this season. The star shortstop certainly has done his part, as he is hitting .355, but in just 245 at-bats. Seager also has 13 homeruns. But, if you want to talk about Texas – Marcus Semien and his numbers or even Adolis Garcia and his 24 bombs. Seager being second on the list has more to do with the incredible season Ohtani has had than anything else.

Wander Franco +3300

The first of two guys for the Tampa Bay Rays is Wander Franco. Franco is hitting .278 on the season and has hit 11 home runs and 44 runs batted in. Franco is the top at bats guy for the Rays, setting the table at the top of the lineup. Franco has all the tools and will be a long-time guy when it comes to contenders for this award. But, when push comes to shove, he is probably second on his own team in our eyes.

Randy Arozarena +4000

Arozarena put on a nice show at the Home Run Derby, and America has got to see that the kid has flare. He is hitting over .280 for the first-place Rays and has 16 home runs on the season. The talented outfielder may not win it in 2023, but if Ohtani leaves the American League, do not be surprised if he is among the leaders next year when it comes to preseason odds for this award.

Marcus Semien +4000

Semien is hitting .271 and has 11 home runs, and 57 runs batted in. While that is great – none of those numbers lead his team – the Texas Rangers. The Rangers have been an offensive juggernaut this season and have a handful of guys that are getting the job done. Semien is a mainstay in the lineup, though, as he leads the team with 391 at-bats. Without him seeing the table, it would be interesting to see what Texas and their offense look like. Do not be surprised if Semien finishes in the Top 3 in votes.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. +8000,

One of the best power hitters in all of Major League Baseball. The home run derby winner. Guerrero is going to win this award at some point in his career. 2023 is likely not the season, but at +8000 – he is worth the long odds to take a flyer on. The Blue Jays are set to make a run in the American League East, and if they do – it will be with his bat in the middle of the lineup.

There you have it. Those are the up-to-date American League Most Valuable Player Odds. Good luck with your betting, and enjoy the rest of the Major League Baseball season!
