With the 2021 MLB season set to play a full 162 games, we’re looking at a bit of “normal” again. This means baseball futures are a popular wager ahead of the 2021 season. One of the most popular betting markets for pre-season (and in-season futures) is wagering on who will win the Cy Young in each league. For the National League, we are set to have an incredibly race between last year’s winner in Trevor Bauer, Mets’ Jacob deGrom, and more.
Let’s take a deeper look at the NL Cy Young betting market, including the current odds, opening odds, and we will update news as the betting market changes throughout the season.
Odds To Win NL Cy Young
Here is a look a the current odds to win the 2021 NL Cy Young award, with the best prices from all your favorite legal sportsbooks. Remember, betting futures is fun but it is key to get the best prices available. For example, if you like Jacob deGrom at +500, but you can get +700 odds on him at another sportsbook, you would want to take that wager for higher payouts. Let’s take a look at the best prices.
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.
