The Milwaukee Brewers are NL Central contenders, thanks to the mediocrity of the division. Additionally, superstar Christian Yelich has a few props worth wagering consideration.

Player Props & Futures
2021 NL MVP
- Christian Yelich (+1200)
I didn’t include Yelich among my favorite NL MVP picks, but he’s in the next tier of options. He’s already claimed the hardware in the 2018 season.
Remarkably, he was even better in 2019. Yelich hit more homers, stole more bases, produced a higher batting average, on-base percentage, slugging, wRC+, and bested his 7.7 FanGraphs Wins Above Replacement (fWAR) with a 7.8 fWAR, per FanGraphs.
Yelich’s two-year fWAR total of 15.5 in 2018 and 2019 combined is the fourth-highest mark, highest among players who played in the NL those years, and second-highest among players who are in the NL now. I forgive his lackluster season — by his standards — last year, making him reasonably priced.
2021 Most Regular Season Homers
- Christian Yelich (+3000)
While Yelich’s NL MVP Award odds are fair, his odds for winning the homer title are a smoking deal. He’s, without question, my favorite bet to win the dinger title this year — betting odds considered.
Total Home Runs by Yelich
- Over 34.5 (-112) - Line from BetRivers as of February 27.
Whether you’re as bullish on Yelich’s homer outlook relative to all players as I am or not, his over for homers is a great bet. Yelich smacked 36 homers in 651 plate appearances in 2018 and slugged 44 in 580 plate appearances in 2019.
Last year’s 12 homers in 247 plate appearances would leave his pace short of hitting more than 34.5 homers this year, but his exit velocity remains elite. He ranked tied for ninth among qualified hitters last year in flyball/line-drive exit velocity (97.1 mph) and set a new personal best in hard-hit percentage (55.6%), according to Baseball Savant.
The stud outfielder’s home ballpark also aids his odds of reaching his over. The left-handed batter park factor for homers at American Family Field (formerly known as Miller Park) is 1.080, per FantasyPros.
