Looking for 2017 MLB Futures Odds for the National League Cy Young Odds. Bovada has released some great betting lines to get down on. The 2017 Major League Baseball season is about to kick off, and we’ve got your back. We will be previewing all the major award odds, and where the smart money is at.
MLB Predictions & Handicapping Insight – NL Cy Young
I can’t go through all the NL Cy Young candidates but I will go through some of the favorites, and some of the dark horses you should keep an eye on.
MLB NL Cy Young Futures Odds: Clayton Kershaw +160
It’s no surprise to see Clayton Kershaw as the favorite to win the National League Cy Young award. Kershaw already has three Cy Young awards and hasn’t finished worse then 5th place in the voting in each of the last six years.
For Kershaw to win this award he needs to stay healthy the whole season. He only pitched 149 innings last year and still had 12 wins.
Even with the payout not being great, I think the smart money is still on Kershaw.
MLB NL Cy Young Futures Odds: Max Scherzer +375
Max Scherzer’s second year in the National league sure worked out well for him. He finished the season with 20 wins and won his second Cy Young award of his career.
Although he had a great year last year, I don’t see him winning the award this year, or even finishing in the top three. At +375 I wouldn’t put any money on him. I see him only winning around 16 or 17 games, which won’t be enough to win the award.
MLB NL Cy Young Futures Odds: Madison Bumgarner +1000
Madison Bumgarner has been pretty consistent over the last few years. In the last three years he has finished 4th in the Cy Young voting twice, and sixth once.
To win this award this year it’s all going to come down to total wins. He had the best stats of his career last year, besides total wins. If he can get those wins back up to 18 or 19 he easily could win the award this upcoming season.
MLB NY Cy Young Futures Odds: Jacob deGrom +2500
I really like the value that Jacob deGrom offers at +2500. He burst onto the season in 2015 and finished in seventh in the Cy Young voting.
Last year he had a down year and battled injuries most of the year. He comes into this year looking to repeat his 2015 year. deGrom has some filthy stuff and can really rack up the strikeouts. If you are looking for a mid range guy to put your money on, this is who I would put it on.
MLB NL Cy Young Futures Odds: Julio Teheran +4000
I am surprised to see Julio Teheran this high on the odds list. He comes into the season as the Ace for the Atlanta Braves.
Julio Teheran has always been highly regarded as a pitcher and has filthy stuff, but he has been inconsistent for most of his career. Last year he had a 7-10 record and a 3.39 ERA. If you wanted to take a flyer on someone with a lot of hype, this might be your guy, but I would stay away from him.
MLB NL Cy Young Futures Odds: Kenley Janson +6600
Kenley Janson was one of the most dominant closer’s in the league last year for the Dodgers. He pitched 68.2 innings last year and only gave up 35 hits.
He had 47 saves and was named an all star for the first time in his career. For Janson to win this award he is probably going to need to get more then 50 saves.
MLB NL Cy Young Futures Odds: Bartolo Colon +10000
The last player to come in on this list is everyone’s favorite pitcher, and meme Bartolo Colon.
He went to the Atlanta Braves in the off season and will try to mentor some of their younger players. I like the gesture to put him on this list, but I see zero value here.
