The Betting Odds For NL MVP Have Changed Heavily

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. has -300 odds as the betting favorite.
  • Bryce Harper (+500) and Max Muncy (+800) are the next options on the board.
  • Jacob DeGrom has gone from the -110 favorite to +10000 longshot in just a month.

LAS VEGAS - The NL MVP odds have been changing drastically over the last month. Former MLB betting favorites are now out of the running while old longshots are now in real contention for MVP honors.

NL MVP Winner

  • Fernando Tatis Jr. (SD) -300
  • Bryce Harper (PHI) +500
  • Max Muncy (LAD) +800

Fernando Tatis Jr. Favored Over The Field

Fernando Tatis Jr. has been one of the favorites for NL MVP honors for almost the entire season. His odds changed a bit back in April but he has since consistently been one of the players with the shortest odds on online sportsbooks.

Tatis Jr. currently sits as a -300 favorite thanks to his .295/.374/.669 batting splits and his 34 home runs and 75 RBI.

He also has 23 stolen bases which rank second-best in the National League. He’s been making his $330 million deal look like a bargain.

Bryce Harper Has Closed The Gap

On July 28, Bryce Harper had +11000 odds to win MVP but has since seen his odds shift down to +500 as the second option. Despite being seemingly out of the running a few weeks back, there is now a real case for Harper to be the MVP for the season.

Harper has a .290 batting average with 26 home runs but is lacking a bit in the RBI department with just 50 on the season.

Ultimately, MLB betting fans should probably avoid siding with Harper as his numbers do not quite match Tatis’ and it’s tough to picture him closing the gap in the limited time remaining in the season.

Is Max Muncy Worth Betting On?

Max Muncy has 28 home runs, 75 RBI and a .273 batting average on the season and is now currently third in the MVP race, at least according to sports betting sites.

Despite drawing MVP chants from his home crowd the other night, he simply can’t compete with Tatis Jr.’s numbers this season. The season Muncy is having is on the MVP level, but unfortunately for him, there’s simply a player having a better season than him.

Jacob DeGrom’s Fall Down The Odds Boards

Jacob DeGrom was having one of the best seasons in MLB history but was hindered by an injury that is now rumored to be ending his season.

Less than a month and a half ago, the MVP race was thought to be DeGrom’s to lose, as the ace was the -110 favorite to win the NL MVP award. Since being injured, his odds have fallen to +10000.

He had a 1.08 ERA and 0.55 WHIP at the time of his injury and just how great of a season he could’ve had might go down as one of the bigger “what-ifs” in recent memory.
