2024 MLB MVP Odds: Betting Lines for AL & NL MVP Race

Aaron Judge is starting to run away with the AL MVP odds as he has continued to warm up with the summer weather. With Juan Soto in tow, Judge has the best lineup protection of his career and he's making pitchers pay for their mistakes.

Once again, injuries suck.

MLB odds had more or less positioned Mookie Betts as the favorite in the National League MVP odds race. While it wasn't locked up, he was pacing the pack. One broken hand later and it seems like a different star will take honors on the Senior Circuit.

Let's look at the latest AL and NL MVP odds.

AL MVP odds analysis

6/24/2024: Aaron Judge is inching away with the AL MVP favorite status. A week ago, he was available around even money or longer. Now, he's trading as short as -150. There's no shortage of talent chasing him, but he had such a monstrous May and June (.366/.480/.878 with 22 home runs) that no one is quite there with him. Steven Kwan (+7,500 at Caesars) and his .390 batting average may seem like an interesting play for the upstart Cleveland Guardians, but he's played just 49 games and wouldn't qualify for the batting title if the season ended today because he hasn't been on the field enough.

The best value play, though not without risk, might be Kyle Tucker (+12,000 at FanDuel). Tucker is on the injured list with a shin injury that has taken longer to heal than anticipated. However, he was hitting .266/.395/.584 with 19 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 60 games before the injury. The batting average doesn't look special but he's also historically been a better second-half hitter. If he can come back soon, he could make a big run.

NL MVP odds analysis

6/24/2024: As expected, Mookie Betts fell even further after it was revealed that he is expected to miss six to eight weeks after breaking his hand on a hit-by-pitch. There is no number worth taking the plunge on him now as he might not be back until August.

If, like me, you still have reservations about whether or not a full-time DH will be given the award, then Fernando Tatis Jr. is your man. He's batting .365 with five home runs in June and slashing .308/.373/.489 since the beginning of May. The Padres might need to make a run at a playoff spot, though, for this to gain extra momentum.

Previous MVP winners

Here are the last 10 winners of the AL and NL MVP Award, with Mike Trout leading the way as a three-time winner. Bryce Harper has won twice with two different teams and Miguel Cabrera was the last player to win back-to-back MVP awards (2012-13). Barry Bonds holds the record for most MVP awards (seven)

The New York Yankees have won the most MVPs in MLB history with 23 while the St. Louis Cardinals are second, leading all NL teams, with 21. No player for the Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Mets, or Tampa Bay Rays has ever won MVP.

MLB MVP odds explained

Most sportsbooks will display odds in the American format as listed above. When Goldschmidt ran away with the MVP award in 2022 his odds had a minus (-) sign ahead of the number for a large part of the season. 

  • Paul Goldschmidt -6,000

That means that a bettor in August had to wager $6,000 to win $100 by betting on Goldy to win MVP. Before the season starts, almost every player will have a plus (+) sign ahead of their odds.

  • Shohei Ohtani +200

That means a bettor would have profited $200 for a $100 wager on Ohtani before the season started. 

If American odds aren't your thing, simply use a tool like our odds converter to switch the odds to decimal or fractional format. Most online sportsbooks also give you the option to change the odds format that you see.
