Looking at NL Cy Young odds during the All-Star Break

Jacob deGrom appears to be running away with award. Is anyone else worth considering? We break down the odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Can Carlos Rodon win the AL Cy Young?

With the first half of the 2021 MLB season in the books and currently sitting at the All-Star break, it is a good time to look at the NL Cy Young race in the American League. Before the season began, New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom was the favorite to win the Cy Young with +500 odds.

deGrom has not let up in his pursuit of winning another NL Cy Young award. The Mets’ ace has been the best pitcher in the game and is on pace to have one of the best season in MLB history. The two-time Cy Young winner has a 7-2 record and 1.08 ERA through 15 starts this season. He’s also has recorded an NL’s best 146 strikeouts in 92.0 IP. deGrom is essentially a lock to win the NL Cy Young, especially with the Mets currently in first place in the NL East.

However, if you want to place a fun bet on another pitcher to win the award, there are a slew of sleeper picks. Brandon Woodruff, who has established himself as one of the best pitchers on the Brewers’ staff has +1200 odds. After that, there’s Kevin Gausman (+1200), Corbin Burnes (+1600), Zack Wheeler (+1800), and Yu Darvish (+2400).
