2017 World Series MVP Odds and Player Props
Originally Published OCT 24
World Series. Tonight. Be there or be square.
With game 1 just a few hours away, we finally have odds for World Series MVP. Last season, Ben Zobrist took home the hardware after driving in the game winning run in extra innings of game 7. He was available at 20/1 before the series began and 10/1 before game 7.
This year, Clayton Kershaw gets the nod as favorite. He is expected to start in games 1 and 5 and would likely be available to come out of the bullpen in a potential game 7 if necessary. Madison Bumgarner essentially did this exact same thing to win the World Series MVP back in 2014, but we all remember who the true MVP was that year…our boy Rikk Wilde from Chevrolet.

A few names I like for value are Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger, George Springer, and Carlos Correa. All four of these players had MVP-like stretches over the regular season and there’s no reason why they can’t over a seven game series. I believe that they all belong closer to the 10/1 payout range and that all four should get your consideration if you plan on betting on this.
