MLB NL Rookie of the Year Award Odds: Seiya Suzuki Is Leading the Way

The MLB season is starting up in about a week. Therefore, it's time to look at which players can win the National League Rookie of the Year award. At this time, it's pretty clear that the rookies that are still with major league camps will likely start the season in the Majors and those who were sent down, obviously won't be up anytime soon due to service time manipulation. Waiting until the season begins is the perfect time to submit a wager on the Rookie of the Year award. So here's a breakdown of the NL Rookie of the Year Award odds.

If you're in need of the best sportsbook promos available, you've come to the right place

MLB National League Rookie of the Year Odds

  • Seiya Suzuki (Cubs) +350
  • Oneil Cruz (Pirates) +460
  • Hunter Greene (Reds) +550
  • Bryson Stott (Phillies) +900
  • CJ Abrams (Padres) +1100
  • Joey Bart (Giants) +1400
  • Alek Thomas (Diamondbacks) +1700
  • Roansy Contreras (Pirates) +3500
  • Brennen Davis (Cubs) +3500
  • Matt Vierling (Phillies) +3500

Favorite: Seiya Suzuki +350 (Bet $100 to Win $350)

Seiya Suzuki was just paid $85 million for a five-year deal with the Chicago Cubs. No other rookie is getting a bag like that. Suzuki is just 27 years old but started playing in Japan nine years ago. Suzuki smacked 182 home runs and had a batting average of .315 in his career over 3539 plate appearances. Time will tell if his game will translate into the MLB but it seems like most front offices and organizations believe it will. The Cubs are a sneaky team offensively and with Suzuki batting in the middle of the lineup, Chicago could be dangerous. Many projections have Suzuki hitting 25 home runs with a nearly .400 OBP. If he gets anywhere close to those numbers, he'll lock up the award.

Another Favorite: Hunter Greene +550 (Bet $100 to Win $550)

Hunter Greene has locked up a spot in the Reds' rotation this season. The Reds have a young core in the rotation after allowing pitchers like Sonny Gray and Wade Miley dip. Greene had a 3.30 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP in AA and AAA last season with 139 strikeouts and just 39 walks. Greene is an extremely hard thrower but locates well and has great command. You rarely see that but I guess kids these days are just developing at a rapid pace now. Either way, if Greene keeps his WHIP down, he could be a star in the MLB. He's got a chance to win the Rookie of the Year award knowing that he'll be starting the season in the big league club.
