AL MVP Odds & Best Bets 2023

Last Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Shohei Ohtani was not moved ahead of the MLB trade deadline. That means unless he were to get injured, it’s a one-man race for American League MVP.

Ohtani has been nothing short of amazing in 2023, but credit is due to other AL players such as Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, Luis Robert Jr., and Bobby Witt Jr. for putting up amazing numbers and backing them up with no worse than league-average defense.

AL MVP Odds 2023

As of Aug. 25, no odds are up for AL MVP.

If odds were to be posted, Ohtani would be the overwhelming favorite in the range of (-15000) or more. I would imagine one of Seager or Semien would be second at around (+4000).

As we know, Ohtani has a torn UCL in his throwing arm, ending his season as a pitcher. He is expected to continue to hit, which is why sportsbooks have not reopened.

Any news regarding shutting him down will be covered here.
