Baseball Odds: National League Cy Young Futures

MLB Betting – National 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.

Based on early sportsbook action, the National League Cy Young race is odd in that a select few names are getting lots of support while the other contenders are being ignored, which is strange considering how tight the race was last season. Let’s look at the NL’s top candidates for 2010.

Here are my top 10 National League arms.

1. TIM LINCECUM (+300 to win)

Roy Halladay is the sexy pick but I think bettors are getting ahead of themselves. We can’t forget that Tiny Tim Lincecum has won the Cy Young in each of his first two full major-league seasons. We should expect continued dominance until he shows us otherwise.

2. ROY HALLADAY (+200 to win)

After seeing Doc Halladay still manage to dominate in the deadly American League East for so long, books have crowned him the 2010 NL Cy Young favorite. It’s definitely exciting to imagine how many games he can win with huge run support from the Phillies and the luxury of facing pitchers.

3. UBALDO JIMENEZ (+250 to win)

We can’t argue with Jimenez’s stuff; Ryan Braun even said on Tuesday that he’ll never see a better arsenal than Jimenez’s. But let’s remember that he still walks guys a bit too often and that the most dominant stretch of his career thus far – the second half of 2009 – was still inferior to Tim Lincecum’s career averages.

4. CHRIS CARPENTER (No odds listed)

A healthy Carpenter is still a dominant Carpenter, as he proved with a sparkling 2009 season. We rarely see back-to-back healthy campaigns from him, however, so I’m sceptical that he can avoid the infirmary this year.

5. ADAM WAINWRIGHT (No odds listed)

Wainwright probably peaked last season – but what a peak it was. He’s a horse, capable of going the distance almost every time he takes the hill, but he could split votes with Carpenter as he probably did last year.Sports Betting at Sportsbook.com

6. DAN HAREN (No odds listed)

He’s one of baseball’s most efficient pitcher’s, with a rare ability to strike guys out and hit the plate non-stop. If he could ever stop his consistent trend of second-half swoons, he’d pile up the Cy Young awards.

7. TOMMY HANSON (No odds listed)

Too early? Not when you consider that Hanson’s rookie season was superior to that of every other guy on this list, including Lincecum’s.

8. COLE HAMELS (No odds listed)

Assuming he can rediscover his changeup, Hamels still has the ability to pitch like a bona fide ace. Maybe Halladay’s presence will take the pressure off him?

9. RICKY NOLASCO (No odds listed)

He’s the biggest long shot of the list given his relative anonymity. But Nolasco was way better than his numbers suggested last year (unlucky based on batting average on balls in play) and untouchable this spring. Don’t forget about him.

10. CLAYTON KERSHAW (No odds listed)

I was torn between him and Yovani Gallardo, a very similar pitcher, but I went with Kershaw because he pitches for a better team. We know he has the stuff to dominate. Kershaw just has to throw more strikes and go deeper into games to get his win total into Cy Young territory.
