    The National League MVP candidate list has some familiar faces and it might be one of the tightest races we’ve seen in a while. We have three former MVPs in the top three, including an American League MVP who moved to the National League. There are also two young studs on this list that will be faces of the league soon. Spring Training is here and that means the MLB regular season is almost here. Let’s take a look at the top five best odds to win the National League MVP.

    National League MVP: Five Best Odds To Win

    Mookie Betts (+550)

    In one of the biggest moves this off-season, the Boston Red Sox traded Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He moves from one of the favorites to win the American League MVP to THE favorite to win the National League MVP. Betts moves to a fringe playoff contender to one of the top World Series favorites.

    Cody Bellinger (+700)

    The reigning MVP Cody Bellinger opens with the second-best odds to win National League MVP. Bellinger is coming off of a 47 home run and 115 RBI season. At the rate he is playing, that can be easily be reached not only by Bellinger but other candidates. He will be sharing a spotlight with the MVP favorite Betts but that shouldn’t keep him from doing great things on the field.

    Christian Yelich (+700)

    If Christian Yelich doesn’t get injured, we could be looking at him as being the MVP instead of Bellinger. Before he got injured, he hit 44 home runs and drove in 97. These numbers would be much better and maybe the Milwaukee Brewers don’t miss the playoffs. Yelich will be more motivated than ever to come back after his injury and show why he was the MVP before his injury. With Betts coming over to the NL, that’s one more tough obstetrical in his way but if anyone can do it, it’s Yelich.

    Juan Soto (+1000)

    Juan Soto has combined for 56 home runs and 180 RBI through his first two years. He is a young and talented player for the Washington Nationals that can be one of the faces of the MLB real soon. Soto played a huge part in bringing the World Series to D.C for the first time. His flair and passion for the game will only put him in a spot to succeed. After the kind of year he had last season, it’s no surprise he is one of the favorites. With Anthony Rendon leaving, Soto will be out to prove he can lead this team. It might be the tightest race ahead of him we’ve seen in a while but you can’t count out someone like Soto.

    Ronald Acuna Jr. (+1000)

    Like Soto, Ronald Acuna Jr. has wowed people ever since coming into the league. In 156 games last season, he hit 41 home runs and had 101 RBI. His offense is electric as well as his defense in the outfield. He is a star in this league and can only get better. The 2018 NL Rookie of the Year finished fifth in the MVP voting last season and is projected to do about the same. The Atlanta Braves have high hoped to head into the season and look to take a step forward and one of the reasons why is Acuna Jr.

    Players With Next Best Odds

    Nolan Arenado (+2000)
    Fernando Tatis Jr. (+2000)
    Javier Baez (+2200)
    Kris Bryant (+2500)
    Freddie Freeman (+2500)
    Bryce Harper (+2500)
    Manny Machado (+2500)
    Ketel Marte (+2500)
