There are few individual awards that are as tough to bet on than Rookie of the Year, especially in this year’s shortened season. Picking an American League Rookie of the Year won’t be easy, but BetMGM has you covered.
In recent years, the A.L. Rookie of the Year has been someone with a big name and high expectations. Yordan Alvarez, who won the award in 2019, is a budding superstar. Back in 2018, two-way star Shohei Ohtani wowed voters with his .925 OPS at the plate and 3.31 ERA on the mound.
One year prior to Ohtani, Aaron Judge shocked the world by mashing 52 home runs and obliterating the previous rookie record. Although Judge’s emergence as an MVP candidate was unexpected, he came up as a feared power hitter who just needed to put it all together.
Here are BetMGM’s MLB odds for A.L. Rookie of the Year.
Odds To Win A.L. Rookie of the Year
Luis Robert +400
Jesus Luzardo +500
Michael Kopech +600
Brendan McKay +700
Casey Mize +1000
Jo Adell +1100
Evan White +1600
A.J. Puk +2000
Forrest Whitley +2000
Nate Pearson +2500
Wander Franco +2500
Will 2020 be another year where one of the favorites takes Rookie of the Year honors or will this time around be different?
Luis Robert, 22, is one guy who we’ve already seen have some success at the MLB-level. Obviously, beware of small sample sizes, but in 30 at-bats for the Chicago White Sox last season, the outfielder notched 10 hits, two RBIs, and four extra-base hits, including a home run. Not to mention, the speedy Robert is capable of swiping a few bags once he reaches base. He registered three stolen bases on three attempts in 11 games last season.
Jesus Luzardo, 22, is another one with some success in the majors. The Peruvian-born pitcher only surrendered one run in 8.1 innings of work last season. It might be tough to rely on a pitcher to win Rookie of the Year though. One poor start could cripple Luzardo’s ERA to the point where he falls out of the running.
