Baseball Odds: American League Cy Young Futures

MLB Betting – American League Cy Young Futures

Teams have started their 2010 Major League Baseball seasons. Ready to start MLB baseball betting? We bring you our future predictions for the year.

Our MLB awards previews continue with the American League Cy Young. Don’t be alarmed if you notice that many of the guys on this list got knocked around in their first starts of the season. It happens, for some reason.

Here are my top 10 American League arms.

1. JON LESTER (+200 to win)

It took awhile for everyone to notice, but we now know that Lester, not Josh Beckett, is Boston’s true ace. The hard-throwing lefty whiffed 225 batters in 2009 and went 7-2 with a 2.82 ERA after the All-Star break. He’s good enough to overcome his tough divisional competition.

2. FELIX HERNANDEZ (+200 to win)

Believe all the hype and Doc Gooden comparisons. King Felix is still quite young, turning 24 this week, yet he has several All-Star-caliber seasons under his belt already. He missed the Cy Young by a hair last season and still has room to improve, meaning he’s an excellent pick for the award this season.

3. ZACK GREINKE (+300 to win)

The defending champ was untouchable last season and it’s understandable if bettors simply expect him to replicate his success in 2010. But I can’t help but wonder if last year was Greinke’s peak and if he’s due for a minor regression. He’ll also struggle to pick up wins with a poor team around him in K.C. again.

4. JUSTIN VERLANDER (+350 to win)

Any question marks about Verlander’s control or mental makeup appear long gone. The big righty throws hard and led the majors in strikeouts last season. Having a relatively weak Detroit lineup around him may hurt his win total but Verlander should still post good enough numbers to hang in the Cy Young race.Sports Betting at Sportsbook.com

5. C.C. SABATHIA (+400 to win)

All C.C. does is win games and he already has a Cy Young under his belt, so he’s a sneaky-good pick. The drawback is that his consistently poor Aprils often leave him too far back in the award race to recover.

6. CLIFF LEE (+300 to win)

Few pitchers have a better situation around them than Cliff Lee does. He goes from a hitter’s haven in Philadelphia to a big, pitcher-friendly park in Seattle and has a great defense behind him. But his abdominal injury has kept him off the field early on and may hinder his effectiveness.

7. MATT GARZA (No odds listed)

Garza doesn’t get much fanfare just yet because of his oddly low win totals but the guy is a big-game pitcher who seems to do his best work against good teams. Voters may finally take notice if he continues to improve with the Rays.

8. JOSH BECKETT (No odds listed)

He’s no longer Boston’s No. 1 guy but he’s still a darned good pitcher who puts together sizzling streaks at various points every season. He’s also still young enough to post a career year any time now.

9. JERED WEAVER (No odds listed)

I don’t think he’ll get much better than his current makeup, which is that of a No. 2 starter, but he wins games like crazy and voters are consistently swayed by that misleading stat.

10. JAKE PEAVY (No odds listed)

I suppose you could take a flier on Peavy and hope he can recapture the dominance of his San Diego heyday. But he has more red flags than a Turkish embassy this season. Coming off an injury, moving from a pitcher’s park to a hitter’s park, facing the DH instead of a pitcher…yuck.
