MLB NL MVP Winner Odds

Futures Header Image

MVP awards are hard to come by in any league, but you could argue that baseball is the hardest of them all. There are so many stats to consider for batters, from batting average, on base percentage, slugging percentage, home runs and more ... and that's just on offense.

As we know, the baseball season is a grind. There are plenty of ebbs and flows over the course of a 162-game season, so these odds are constantly changing. While there are certainly some stars at the top of the odds list, there are also some big names further down the board who are more than capable of getting hot and claiming this award.

Who are the favorites to win NL MVP?

machado-g3.jpg

1. Manny Machado (+290)

Machado has never finished higher than third (2020) in MVP voting, but that's not a knock on his talent and is more of an indicator of how tough this award is to win. The Padres third baseman is a six-time All-Star and a two-time Gold Glove Award winner. Machado leads the National League in several offensive categories through the first two months of the season. His numbers may dip a bit as the year goes on, but it's also important to remember that he could benefit from additional protection in the lineup or increased RBI opportunities once Fernando Tatis Jr. returns.

2. Mookie Betts (+310)

Betts just missed winning his second MVP -- and first in the NL -- during the shortened 2020 season, but he did win his second championship that season, so he's probably not too upset about that result. The superstar outfielder has another great chance at winning both a ring and an MVP Award in 2022. Betts, on his own, is one of the most talented players in baseball. Add that talent to an extremely loaded Dodgers' lineup and Betts will be afforded with numerous opportunities to rack up stats throughout the season.

3. Paul Goldschmidt (+650)

Goldschmidt, despite being an All-Star for most of his career, hasn't come close to winning an MVP award since the 2013 season when he finished second in voting. He has been raking to start the 2022 season with an OPS over 1.000 at the start of June. If he keeps up this pace, he could win his first career MVP award. 

4. Bryce Harper (+950)

Harper won the second NL MVP award of his career in 2021 despite being snubbed for the MLB All-Star Game in the summer. Harper exploded in the second half of the season to finish with a slash line of .309/.429/.615 and beat out Juan Soto for the honor. It'll take a lot to repeat as the MVP, but Harper certainly has the star power and a strong season from the Phillies could help him become the first back-to-back winner since Albert Pujols in 2008-09.


With the three stars claiming the top spots on the NL MVP odds board, here's a look at the next group of players who could be of value in the market.

  • Pete Alonso (+1200)

  • Freddie Freeman (+1400)

  • Nolan Arenado (+1400)
  • Juan Soto (+1900)

  • C.J. Cron (+2200)

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. (+2500)
