A number of star players are at the top of the field, including Bryce Harper and Alex Bregman. But there are some underdog candidates with legitimate shots at the crown as well.
Prior to Game 1, Harper was second for MVP behind Yordan Alvarez. Harper entered the series at +700 while Alvarez was +600 at BetMGM.
Now, Harper is the leader at +350, while Alvarez sits at +1100.
Harper has three hits in the World Series, highlighted by a home run in Game 3.
The Astros’ current favorite for MVP is Kyle Tucker, who has posted two home runs along with five RBIs. He’s listed at +450, slightly behind Harper.
Following the pair is Bregman, who has also parked a home run and amassed four RBIs through four World Series games.
No one player has eye-popping stats, and with the series even at 2-2, it’s understandable why there is no clear favorite for the award.
A sea of players surround Alvarez, with Jose Altuve alongside him and Kyle Schwarber behind at +1400.
Jeremy Pena is the next-shortest Astros player, with +1300 odds. He hasn’t particularly lit it up this series, but he’s continued to be productive as he has all postseason.
No pitchers are seriously in the running for the award outside of Houston’s Framber Valdez, who is listed at +1300.
Game 5 will start tonight at 8:03 in the evening.
