Player Props & Futures
American League Cy Young
- Shane Bieber (+400)
- Triston McKenzie (+6600)
In 2019, Shane Bieber established himself as one of the best pitchers in the MLB, and in 2020 he continued to dominate. Despite playing in hitter-friendly Progressive Field, he has managed a 3.32 career ERA. There is no reason to suspect he won’t have another dominant season in 2021, so bettors should feel comfortable putting money on Bieber to win the AL Cy Young award this season.
Triston McKenzie had a nice debut in 2020, but he is far from ready to contend for a Cy Young. Even at +6600, don’t waste money on McKenzie here.
2021 AL MVP (Bet365)
- Jose Ramirez (+1200)
- Franmil Reyes (+8000)
Jose Ramirez could have a legitimate chance of winning the AL MVP. In 2018 and 2019 he spent half the season on fire and the other half floundering. If he simply put it all together in one season, he could be one of the best players in baseball. He is one of few players who have the potential to hit 40 home runs, steal 30 bases and bat .300. If he can do that in 2021, he will have a good chance at winning the AL MVP. He’s worth a sprinkle at +1200.
Don’t put your money on Franmil Reyes here. He has the potential to be very good but is not in the MVP conversation.
MLB Most Wins (Bet365)
- Shane Bieber (+1200)
Trading away Lindor definitely hurts Cleveland’s chances of winning games in 2021, and that will hurt Bieber’s chances of leading the MLB in wins. He is likely to lead his team in wins, but not the MLB.
MLB Most Home Runs (Bet365)
- Franmil Reyes +2800
- Jose Ramirez +4000
Franmil Reyes might not be worth betting on for the AL MVP, but at +2800, he’s worth putting a little bit of money on to lead the MLB in home runs. In 2019 he hit 37 homers and has the power to hit more than that. His exit velocity, barrel rate, and hard contact back up the home run potential. If he can tweak his launch angle a little bit to improve his career 46 percent ground ball rate, he could send 45 balls out of the park, especially playing half of his games in Cleveland.
Jose Ramirez has 35-40 home run potential as well but doesn’t hit the ball as hard as Reyes. At +4000 odds, a bet on Ramirez is tempting, but bettors should focus more on Reyes to be MLB’s home run king.
