MLB Predictions & Handicapping Insight – NL MVP
I can’t go through all the NL MVP candidates but I will go through some of the favorites, and some of the dark horses you should keep an eye on.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Kris Bryant +300
It’s crazy that Kris Bryant is only in his third season in the Major Leagues. In those two years he has been an All Star twice, won the Rookie of the Year and the MVP award.
After taking home the NL MVP last year he comes in tied as the favorite to repeat and win the award again.
Last year he had 39 home runs, 102 RBI’s, and 121 Runs. To repeat this year he is going to need to exceed those expectations and the Cubs are going to need another huge year.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Bryce Harper +300
After having a really down season last year Bryce Harper will try and rebound this season. He is tied with Kris Bryant for the best odds to win the MVP.
He is probably the player with the most talent in the MLB but he needs to relate that to the field this year to win the MVP. Last year he only had 24 home runs and 86 runs batted in.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Nolan Arenado +700
A lot of people looking at this list might be surprised to see Nolan Arenado as having the third best odds to win the MVP.
But he has a ton of talent and has hit over 40 home runs each of the last year. The downfall for him is that he plays for the Colorado Rockies so he doesn’t get a ton of attention.
If the Colorado Rockies can take a step forward as a team Arenado would be my pick to win the MVP this year.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Clayton Kershaw +3300
Clayton Kershaw has the best odds as any pitcher coming in at +3300. In his Career he already has three Cy Young awards and one MVP.
Last year he had a 12-4 record and a 1.64 ERA. For some reason he didn’t get a ton of run support when he was on the mound. If he can get a few more wins this year, and be just as dominant as last year he can win this award.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Andrew McCutchen +3300
I am kind of surprised to see Andrew McCutchen this high up on the list. He really struggled for much of the year last year and has lost a step in the outfield, so much so that he might not even start in center field.
To win the award he is going to have to find a fountain of youth, but I just don’t see it happening. I would stay away from him when placing your bets.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Ryan Braun +10000
Ryan Braun has had a couple of down years ever since his steroid scandal. But he is still the type of player who can hit the ball out on any at bat.
If he can hit a few more home runs then last year he could be a dark horse to win the MVP.
2017 National League MVP Odds: Adam Eaton +10000
Adam Eaton has a new team and I think that could really help his National League MVP chances.
After playing for the White Sox for the last three years, Eaton went to the Nationals during the off-season. I think just playing for the Nationals will get him a few more MVP votes if he can have another good year.
