2021 Major League Baseball Futures: Soto and Betts are Co-Favourites to Win NL MVP

Baseball Mar 05, 2021

While Mike Trout is the prohibitive favourite to win the American League's top individual player honor, the odds are much closer in the 2021 National League's Most Valuable Player award.

Trout, the three-time MVP winner is currently listed at 2 to 1 to win in the A.L, while Juan Soto and Mookie Betts are co-favourites to take the prize in the N.L. at about 9 to 1 odds.

Here's a look at these two top players according to Baseball Reference:

The quick take here the N.L. is a wide-open race.  Picking of the top ten players according to the odds is probably as good as any other.  For instance, Bryce Harper at 16 to 1 is likely a better value than taking either of the favourites.
