The 2024 MLB season has finally arrived, so it’s time to get in the lab and find our favorite futures bets.

On this page, we’ll take a look at MLB AL MVP odds, featuring a favorite along with contenders and sleepers for the award.

With that in mind, let’s get right into the AL MVP odds and best bets for the 2024 MLB season.

AL MVP Odds 2024

  • Aaron Judge, New York Yankees (+500)
  • Juan Soto, New York Yankees (+550)
  • Corey Seager, Texas Rangers (+700)
  • Yordan Alvarez, Houston Astros (+800)
  • Julio Rodriguez, Seattle Mariners (+1000)
  • Kyle Tucker, Houston Astros (+1200)
  • Gunnar Henderson, Baltimore Orioles (+1500)
  • Jose Ramirez, Cleveland Guardians (+1500)
  • Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels (+1500)
  • Bobby Witt Jr, Kansas City Royals (+2000)

Aaron Judge comes in as the favorite for AL MVP, but the Yankees’ slugger is dealing with an abdomen injury. While Judge is likely to be ready for Opening Day, the injury risk is enough to avoid laying a bet at (+500).

The same goes for Corey Seager (+700), who has a groin injury that may not cause him to miss the start of the season, but the fact that he’s already banged up crosses him off the list of potential AL MVP best bets.

It’s also tough to place a bet on Mike Trout, even at (+1500) odds, simply due to the fact that the future Hall-of-Famer has consistently missed time throughout his career, failing to get to 600 plate appearances since 2019.

With those three players crossed off our list, let’s now dive into the favorite, contenders, and sleepers for the 2024 AL MVP award.

Odds are courtesy of as of March 18, 2024.

AL MVP Favorite

Juan Soto, New York Yankees (+550)

bet365 Sportsbook WAGER: 1 unit

Juan Soto is in a contract year, so the added motivation could result in big numbers in his first year in New York.

As a left-handed slugger hitting at the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium, we could see Soto set a career-high in home runs this season.

Add in the fact that Aaron Judge is already banged up and Shohei Ohtani is now in the National League and you can see why Soto is among the favorites for this award.

Soto was worth 7.0 WAR in his best season (2021). It wouldn’t surprise me to see something similar in 2024.

There’s a good chance that we’ll once again get 700+ plate appearances for Soto, so the numbers should be there. Plus, the Yankees will need to rely on Soto, especially with a questionable pitching staff now that Gerrit Cole is injured.

AL MVP Contender

Julio Rodríguez, Seattle Mariners (+1000)

bet365 Sportsbook WAGER: 0.5 units

Julio Rodríguez enters his age-23 season as one of the most exciting superstars in the game, putting up 5.0+ WAR in each of his two years in the big leagues.

We saw the Mariners slugger catch fire in the second half last year, putting up an impressive 156 wRC+ after the All-Star Break.

Seattle’s got an elite pitching staff, but their lineup is a bit weak compared to other playoff contenders, so it’s clear that they’ll need to rely on Julio to carry their offense.

This is a hitter who has an elite batted ball profile with great speed, so there’s upside for a 40-40 season.

At (+1000) odds, this is a great price on Rodríguez, who looks poised for his best year yet.

AL MVP Sleeper

Bobby Witt Jr, Kansas City Royals (+2000)

bet365 Sportsbook WAGER: 0.25 units

Bobby Witt Jr. is another young and exciting talent who has the ability to hit 30 home runs and steal 50 bases.

Witt almost accomplished this daunting task in his second year in MLB, falling only one stolen base short of a 30-50 year.

We’ve seen the Royals’ shortstop worth as much as 5.7 WAR (2023), so there’s definitely enough player value on Witt to secure this illustrious award.

If the Royals are able to emerge as one of the surprise teams, it would likely be due to Witt having a massive season, putting him in position for AL MVP.

We’re getting a terrific price on one of the biggest power-speed threats in baseball at (+2000) odds.
