MLB Futures Odds, August 2021
Betting on the 2021 World Series
With the long baseball season essentially going back to the last two months, it’s easier to check the World Series odds.
For now, DraftKings West Virginia shows a familiar name above. It has Los Angeles swindlers as a favorite to win the title again with odds of +300.
Those odds actually seem pretty generous considering the Dodgers’ moves as of the deadline. Even though they presented a loaded roster like this, they went out and improved by adding Krug Max Scherzer and shortstop Treasure turner of the Nationals.
Part of the reason they aren’t major favorites is the fact that the Dodgers are still not number one in their division. This honor belongs to him San Francisco Giantswho currently have a lead of 3.5 games.
The Giants own the fourth best odds to win everything at DraftKings this season. They are available at +1000compared to around +4000 in May.
A couple AL Teams fill in the gaps between the two rivals. That Houston Astros are posted at +450, while Chicago White Sox have chances on +550.

2021 MVP betting
That MVP is usually one of the most heavily bet on the futures markets and is usually an exciting race until the end of the season.
Despite it Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr. competes for the AL’s Triple crown, the MVP seems out of reach.
This is just because the Engels’ Shohei Ohtani does things on a baseball diamond that have never been seen before.
at FanDuel Sports Betting WV, Ohtani is available for betting below -750. Guerrero is far behind him at odds +550.
If Guerrero doesn’t make it this season, it won’t be because of his stellar campaign. He is second in homers behind Ohtani while he is first with 85 RBI and tied for third in the batting average.
In most years this would be enough to receive the award.
Unfortunately for Vlad Jr., Ohtani is doing all right. In addition to his 37 home runs and 82 RBI, he has an ERA of 3.04 and 100 strikeouts in 80 innings.
It doesn’t look like anyone can take that honor from Ohtani in the AL as long as they stay healthy.
That Bundesliga Racing is much more interesting.
At the moment, Fernando Tatis Jr. is the favorite at FanDuel at -115. Despite having a great season, the Padres Star shortstop is currently out injured. This is not his first time at the IL either.
This leaves the door wide open for the Dodgers’ new acquisition in Turner (+450), Dodger colleague Max Muncy (+450) and the Braves’ Freddie Freeman (+700).
Even the Phillies’ Bryce Harper makes a late climb to take home the MVP. He is shown at +3000 thanks to a scorching July where it hit 0.333 with an OPS of 1.023.
Cy Young Award Odds
There is a new leader at FanDuel for the AL Cy Young forgive. After this Yankees’ Gerrit Cole held the top odds for the entire season, Chicago’s Lance Lynn is the current favorite.
The White Sox ace is offered at -155.
Cole only fell back to second place but is now an underdog at +260. Aside from looking inconsistent lately, he’s also narrowly missed a start and is on the sidelines COVID-19 list.
Lynn is 10-3 and has a 2.07 ERA. After struggling a bit in June, Lynn bounced back in July with a 3-0 record with just seven well-deserved runs in five starts.
It helps his chances that the White Sox are among the better teams in the league this season as well. Lynn leads his team into the postseason, unlike the Yankees who are still busy.
Lynn’s teammate, Carlos Rodon, is the only other AL pitcher with odds in the same stadium as the leaders. It’s available at +410 to win the Cy Young.
The award is much more of a National League throw.
The Dodgers Walker Buhler is currently the favorite at +270However, several mugs are hot on his heels. FanDuel shows the following odds:
- Zack Wheeler +290
- Brandon Woodruff +450
- Corbin Burnes +500
- Kevin Gausmann +500
- Max Scherzer +900
- Jacob deGrom +1800
The Mets’ deGrom looked like a lock on it at one point, but it’s also been through some tough times. He met the IL again in early July with an elbow problem.
Now the hardware will likely go to whichever competitor listed does the strongest.
