MLB MVP Odds: Shohei Ohtani and Juan Soto Favored to Take Home the Hardware

The MLB is back and although there are still plenty of free agents out there, we're going to give you an early look at the MLB MVP race in the National and American Leagues.

Opening day is less than a month away with games slated to start on April 7. Let's take a look at the odds from both leagues in the MVP race.

American League MLB MVP Odds

  • Shohei Ohtani (Angles) +450
  • Mike Trout (Angles) +450
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Blue Jays) +700
  • Wander Franco (Rays) +1600
  • Aaron Judge (Yankees) +2000
  • Jose Ramirez (Guardians) +2000
  • Bo Bichette (Blue Jays) +2500
  • Kyle Tucker (Astros) +2500
  • Rafael Devers (Red Sox) +2,500

  • Corey Seager (Rangers) +4000
  • Gerritt Cole (Yankees) +4000
  • Luis Robert (White Sox) +4000
  • Matt Olson (Athletics) +4000
  • Salvador Perez (Royals) +4000

Favorite: Shohei Ohtani +450 (Bet $100 to Win $450)

It's crazy to think that the Angels have the two best players in baseball but continually miss the playoffs. This year, it truly does feel different. Mike Trout is healthy and the Angels pitching staff looks to be improved. Therefore, Ohtani can absolutely win the MLB MVP. Mike Trout can too. As long as the Angels are competitive and healthy, both of those two have a chance at winning the MLB MVP award. Ohtani hit 46 home runs and 100 RBIs while also throwing 23 games and finishing with a 3.18 ERA. That is unheard of in baseball and got a ton of recognition last year when Ohtani won the award.

Long Shot: Byron Buxton +3000 (Bet $100 to Win $3000)

Byron Buxton couldn't stay on the field last season. But in 2021, he still hit 19 home runs with an average of .306. Buxton had just 235 at-bats and had 23 doubles and 19 home runs with a WAR of 4.5. If Buxton stayed healthy, the Twins might've not collapsed. If Buxton was healthy, the Twins would've been much better off and he would've hit the lights out of the ball. Buxton is very capable of putting up ridiculous numbers. After signing a seven-year deal worth $100 million to stay with Minnesota, Buxton has a ton of value at +3000 to have an MLB MVP-like season.

  • Juan Soto (Nationals) +350
  • Fernando Tatis Jr. (Padres) +400
  • Mookie Betts (Dodgers) +600
  • Ronald Acuna Jr. (Braves) +1000
  • Bryce Harper (Phillies) +1000

  • Max Scherzer (Mets) +4000
  • Max Muncy (Dodgers) +4000
  • Pete Alonso (Mets) +4000

Favorite: Juan Soto +450 (Bet $100 to Win $450)

Juan Soto is absolutely the best hitter in baseball. But right now, the Nationals' lineup looks weak. The RBIs won't be as high if nobody can get on base in front of him. Soto hit for .313 average last season with 29 home runs and 95 RBIs. He played just 151 games and walked 145 times to just 93 strikeouts. He's a tough guy to face for any pitcher and is an elite player that deserves recognition. But I don't think he'll win the award unless he goes bonkers for the Nationals this season.

Long Shot: Trea Turner +1600 (Bet $100 to Win $1600)

Juan Soto's former teammate Trea Turner probably didn't get enough love in Washington. In Los Angeles, Turner will be appreciated more. Turner played 148 games last season and hit .328 with 28 home runs, 77 RBIs, and had 32 stolen bases. He's a guy that can get on base at will and defend at a very high level in the infield. Turner does it all and could be the next Corey Seager for the Dodgers.
