MLB Baseball Odds to win the 2014 Cy Young – AL & NL Predictions

Cy Young Props

With scoring being down it seems like there are more potential Cy Young winners than ever. Lets take a quick look at the favourite, a contender and a dark horse candidate in each league. There is some good value out there for tying up your money all season.

American League
Favourite:
Yu Darvish +700

A key for Darvish is going to be health. He has already been scratched from the opening day start and has the kind of injury that can easily linger. Assuming he can get back to full strength he can put up wicked numbers across the board. He is one of a few pitchers who can dominate any lineup. If all he misses is the one start he will probably lead the American League in strikeout while picking up more than enough wins.

Contender:
Felix Hernandez +1200

If Seattle gets into the race it will mean that the offense is going to pick up the King more often. Felix Hernandez has been too often the best .500 pitcher in the game but if he can get 16 or more wins he will definitely be in the hunt. He is also the rare bread that gets stronger as the game goes on and actually finishes games. That always plays well with the voters if the other numbers are there.

Sleeper
Joe Nathan +5000

For the past few seasons the Detroit tigers have been searching for a reliable closer. Blessed with a fabulous starting rotation and a strong offense there will be plenty of leads to protect again this season. I am not generally a fan of relievers for this award but if Nathan performs at a high level and it appears that he is the missing piece on an elite team he will be in the discussion. He will need 50+ saves for consideration though.

GTBets

National League:
Favourite:
Clayton Kershaw +500

Like Darvish there are inury concerns at this stage of the season. As long as they don’t linger Kershaw will continue in his role as the most dominant starter in the league. This year’s Dodgers shoul be even better than last year’s so he might even put up a higher win total. The only think that is ging to slow him down is injury. He has proven that over the last few seasons.

Contender:
Cole Hamels +1500

In the second half of last year Hamels proved that his rough start was an aberration. For him to get in this race he needs the Phillies to be in the race too and if he is pitching well they probably will be. He is a little dinged up heading into the season (it seems like everyone is) but as a veteran he knows how to be ready when the lights get bright. He is sometimes a little lighter than others in Ks but his control is superb.

Sleeper:
Gerrit Cole +2500

As a rookie he showed a lot last year. Most importantly he showed that he is ready to start a very promising career. The one thing that might hold him back is whether the Pirates put him on any sort of innings limit. If the shackles are off and he is allowed to pitch at least 190 innings than he could be among strikeout and WHIP leaders. I think Pittsburgh will still be a good team this year so the wins will follow.
