The 2022 MLB All-Star Game came and went, ending in the National League's eighth straight loss at the Midsummer Classic. With the 2022 season scheduled to resume on Thursday, all attention has been diverted back to this year's NL Most Value Player race.

The latest 2022 NL MVP odds on FanDuel Sportsbook have a clear-cut favorite in St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt at +110. The 34-year-old slugger has 20 home runs and 70 RBIs through 90 games and also leads the NL in runs scored (64), batting average (.330), and slugging percentage (.590), among other categories.

San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado is a semi-close second at +550 odds. While he doesn't lead the NL in any major statistics, the six-time All-Star does have 15 HRs and 51 RBIs while slashing .303/.377/.513.

After Goldshmidt and Machado, things are a bit closer. Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman are tied for second at +1000 odds while Pete Alonso and Austin Riley are tied for fifth at +1200.
