MLB AL Cy Young Winner Odds

Futures Header Image

The American League Cy Young race has turned into a two-pitcher contest, though it's not too late for a dark horse to put together a strong second half and lead his team to a playoff berth.

The Rays' Shane McClanahan started the All-Star Game for the American League and is the betting favorite at +200 after opening around +4000. Justin Verlander, who missed all of last year, is listed at +250 and finds himself in second after leading for much of the first half. There are a few more of the usual suspects are at the top of the board, including Gerrit Cole, Kevin Gausman and Shohei Ohtani.

Who's the favorite to win the AL Cy Young award?

Here are some of the early odds to win the AL Cy Young award:

1. Shane McClanahan

McClanahan, as mentioned above, has really emerged early in 2022. The 25-year-old lefty was a big-name prospect in the Rays system and he's proven that he was worthy of the hype early in his career. After a solid rookie year in 2021, McClanahan is showing that he's capable of becoming one of the better arms in all of baseball.

2. Justin Verlander

Verlander missed last season due to Tommy John surgery but has bounced back to become one of the best pitchers in baseball this year, even at 39-years-old. The Astros are looking like they'll win the AL West, so expect to see Verlander pitching meaningful games late in the season.

3. Dylan Cease

Cease got off to a mediocre start, but was lights out in June and July. The White Sox have also started playing better of late and if Chicago makes a late season push to the postseason, it'll likely be because Cease is dominating opposing lineups and boosting his Cy Young profile.

4. Shohei Ohtani

Is there anything Ohtani can't do? After putting together arguably the most impressive season in baseball history in 2021, Ohtani is dominating again in 2022. Not only is he a Cy Young candidate, but he's also in the running for the AL MVP Award. Could he win both this year?

5. Gerrit Cole

Cole is always going to be a Cy Young favorite -- he's finished top 5 in voting in each of the past four years, two with the Astros and two with the Yankees.
