MLB Predictions & Handicapping Insight – AL MVP
I can’t go through all the AL MVP candidates but I will go through some of the favorites, and some of the dark horses you should keep an eye on.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Mike Trout +125
Mike Trout is the favorite to bring home the American league MVP trophy at seasons end. If you want to talk about value to a team, he is probably the most valuable.
Without him the Los Angeles Angels would be lucky to have won 65 games last year. The things he can do with his bat and his glove make him a once in a generation type talent.
He finished the 2016 season with a .315 batting average, 29 home runs, and 100 runs batted in.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Mookie Betts +500
Mookie Betts the Red Sox second baseman comes into this season with the second best odds to win the AL MVP, which is fitting because he finished second to Mike Trout in last years MVP voting. Along with that second place finish he also won the silver slugger and a gold glove.
The only question with Betts is can he continue the pace he did last year. He took a big jump from the year before so it will be interesting to see if he can continue that.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Jose Altuve +1000
To go right along with the trend above Jose Atluve, who finished third in the MVP voting last year comes in with the third best odds to win it this year.
If the Houston Astros live up to expectations this year, I think that Jose Altuve is actually the favorite to win the award. Last year he had a career year with the Astros really under performing.
If he can do that again and the Astros make the playoffs, he will be the AL MVP.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Nelson Cruz +3300
Nelson Cruz doesn’t get the type of attention he used to when he played for the Rangers, but he has put together a couple of nice seasons out in Seattle.
He has finished in the top 15 in MVP voting both years out there. His chances to win the MVP will also be dependent on how well the Mariners perform as a team.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Edwin Encarnación +5000
Edwin Encarnación got his new contract from the Blue Jays this off-season and now can just focus on the results on the field.
Encarnación had his best season on the field last year as he hit 42 home runs and 127 runs batted in. The one concern I have about him is his age. At some point his production is going to have to go down, just hopefully that isn’t this year.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Albert Pujols +10000
I am very surprised to see Albert Pujols even on this list. He still does give the Angels good at bats, but he can’t play in the field anymore, and can’t really run.
Unless he found the fountain of youth during his off season I just don’t see it happening.
MLB AL MVP Futures Odds: Brian Dozier +10000
On long shot I can see having a chance at the MVP is Brian Dozier. Without Brian Dozier on the roster last year the Twins might not have won even 50 games.
If he can play close to the same level he played last year, and the Twins can win some games, he has a chance to make a push from the back.
