Mike Trout Heavily Favored for AL MVP at Sportsbooks

Mike Trout says he's ready to go and will enter the season as the consensus favorite to the win the American League MVP at sportsbooks around the nation.

Sportsbook William Hill U.S. has Trout as the 2-1 favorite to win his second straight MVP award and fourth of his career. New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge is next at 8-1, followed by Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor at 10-1.

The odds to win the National League MVP suggest a much tighter race. The Los Angeles Dodgers boast two of the favorites in prized offseason acquisition Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger, last year's winner.

Betts and Bellinger are each listed at 7-1 at William Hill books, along with Milwaukee Brewers slugger Christian Yelich and Atlanta Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr.

With the season condensed to 60 games, sportsbooks are offering some creative proposition wagers. A player hitting .400 for the season is 8-1 at the SuperBook in Las Vegas. At PointsBet, a player to hit 30 or more home runs during the regular season is 50-1.

Should be fun to watch.
