*Original post during League Championship Series

Even though both league’s championship series are still up for grabs, Paddy Power is already offering odds for the World Series MVP. Most of the names towards the top of the list come from the Cubs and Indians, the two teams currently favored to make the World Series. Listed below are the current ALCS, NLCS, and World Series odds from BetOnline.

ALCS BetOnline (10/18) BetOnline (10/17)
Indians -1300 -275
Blue Jays +875 +230

NLCS BetOnline (10/22) BetOnline (10/19) BetOnline (10/18) BetOnline (10/17)
Cubs -370 +160 -165 -175
Dodgers +310 -180 +145 +155

World Series 5Dimes (11/2) 5Dimes (10/31) 5Dimes (10/30) 5Dimes (10/29) 5Dimes (10/27) 5Dimes (10/26) 5Dimes (10/23) 5Dimes (10/22) 5Dimes (10/19) BetOnline (10/18) BetOnline (10/17)
Cubs -118 +210 +345 +115 -230 -115 -180 -118 +240 +130 +130
Indians +108 -250 -430 -135 +190 -105 +158 +163 +210 +165 +220
Dodgers N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A +675 +170 +350 +350
Blue Jays N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A +900 +2200 +675

The first five names atop Paddy Power’s MVP odds list are all pitchers. Kluber is the only true ace on the Indians staff, while the Cubs have three ace-caliber pitchers, which is likely the reason Kluber now tops the list. Despite the top of the list being pitcher heavy, pitchers have only won the award four times since the turn of the century.

  1. Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling: 2001 (Co-Winners)
  2. Josh Beckett: 2003
  3. Cole Hamels: 2008
  4. Madison Bumgarner: 2014

These pitchers are followed by Francisco Lindor and Kris Bryant, arguably the best position players for the Indians and Cubs, respectively.

One thing that immediately caught my eye was how low Corey Seager was listed. There are two position players from the Blue Jays, who have the worst odds of winning the World Series, listed significantly higher than Seager. In my mind, that’s a major mistake. Seager is one of the best young players in baseball and, if the Dodgers can win the World Series, he will likely be one of the biggest contributors.
