World Series MVP Odds
|Lance McCullers Jr.||+4000|
Due to advanced scheduling, the series won't actually get started until Friday. However, this gives us plenty of time to decipher who we are betting on for World Series MVP.
The World Series MVP race is relatively wide open with no player higher than +600 on the odds board at BetMGM.
Astros outfielder Yordan Alvarez is the favorite to win MVP at +600. He is followed closely by NLCS MVP Bryce Harper at +700.
Both of them are also the two biggest liabilities so far at BetMGM. Alvarez accounts for 10.4% of the tickets at BetMGM and 19.1% of the handle.
Harper is getting 12.2% of the bets and accounts for 10.9% of the handle.
It's important to note, World Series MVP started for the playoffs so the percentages include players from teams that are no longer in the playoffs. Aaron Judge accounts for 10% of the tickets and 9.5% of the handle.
Alex Bregman and Justin Verlander are the next two-highest players on the odds board with both at +1100. Bregman is one of the liabilities at BetMGM with 4.2% of the tickets and 12.8% of the handle. Verlander is getting 4.6% of the bets and 3.5% of the money.
Kyle Schwarber is the next highest Phillie at +1300. He's getting 3.3% of the tickets and 1.9% of the handle.
Kyle Tucker, at +1000, is tied for the third-highest, but hasn't been getting much interest from bettors at BetMGM. He accounts for just 1.5% of the bets and 1.7% of the total handle.
Jose Altuve sits at +1300, and there are a whole host of Phillies behind him.
