Opening Odds To Win 2021 NL Cy Young Award
|Player||Odds to Win Cy Young|
While the best pitchers in baseball may be in the American League, the National League has a deeper selection of dominant pitchers. Last year’s Cy Young winner was Trevor Bauer, who is now with the Dodgers. For this year’s award, it will certainly be a race to the finish between some of the best arms baseball has to offer. Jacob deGrom leads at +500 for the Mets, but is closely followed by Bauer and perennial candidate Max Scherzer. In the top 10, nearly half of the list is represented by Padres or Dodgers, so it seems likely one of those two will have a representative as the winner.
Last season, Bauer ran away with the Cy Young award, has he finished with two complete game shutouts in 11 starts, a 1.73 ERA, and 100 strikeouts in 73 innings of work. Most impressively, Bauer held opposing hitters to a .159 batting average and walked just 17 batters. For this season, Jacob deGrom will have a better defense behind him along with a stronger lineup that may allow for him to finally put some wins together. deGrom is the favorite at +500, but it is hard to count Bauer out after last year’s campaign. One pitcher worth thinking about is Walker Buehler, who has some of the best stuff in baseball and is set to pitch for the best team in the MLB.
Corbin Burnes NL Cy Young Odds rise as June begins
One of the pleasant surprises of the 2021 season so far is just how dominant Brewers’ starting pitcher Corbin Burnes has been. Of course, we know about Jacob deGrom’s dominance, and the usual suspects in Max Scherzer, Trevor Bauer, and the Dodgers’ trio in Buehler, Kershaw, and Trevor Bauer. Seeing pitchers like Burnes burst onto the scene makes the betting market far more fun, as there are more options to wager on. Here is a look at the odds as of early June.

When it comes to betting on the NL Cy Young award, the obvious favorite is deGrom with his dominant stats despite the lack of run support. If you are betting the field though, there are a few pitchers with plenty of value.
Trevor Bauer at +1900 is far too steep, as he leads the NL in strikeouts, has an ERA just over two, and a ridiculous WHIP of just 0.82. While deGrom is the clear favorite, Bauer’s dominance cannot be understated and he is most likely to keep up his pace compared to others ahead of him as far as the odds are concerned. Plus, Bauer is a lot of fun to watch.

At +1900 on DraftKings, he is a value wager as the summer begins as you are likely to get closing line value on his odds.
