San Francisco Giants Futures Bets: 2021 Team & Player Props
Player Props & Futures
2021 NL Cy Young
- Kevin Gausman (+5000) (Bet365)
Kevin Gausman really broke out during the shortened season, posting a 3.62 ERA (3.24 SIERA) and 1.11 WHIP in 59.2 innings. He improved his strikeout rate by 6.9% (32.2 K%) and cut his walk rate by 0.6% (6.5%). His 25.7 K-BB% (8th) and 15.2 SwStr% (7th) ranked among the best pitchers in baseball. Gausman is a former top prospect who has finally found a home in San Francisco.
While this is a longshot bet, it’s not out of the realm of possibility considering his improvements from last season. He has established himself as the ace of the Giants’ staff, pitching in the friendly confines of Oracle Park. Gausman has lower odds than pitchers like Mike Soroka, who is trying to come back from an Achilles injury. We have seen former Orioles’ pitching prospects become Cy Young winners in the past (Jake Arrieta with the Cubs in 2015), so why not take a shot on Gausman?
