Major League Baseball player awards are a hot topic as the 2021 season gets set to start on Thursday, April 1. The top-performing pitcher in each league is always debated, and the American League Cy Young odds at FanDuel Sportsbook show some strong candidates to take home the award this season.

The MLB season starts with New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole and Cleveland Indians Opening Day starter Shane Bieber as the co-favorites at +330 to win the 2021 AL Cy Young award. Looking at the season win totals, Beiber will have to have an incredible season for an Indians team projected to play near .500 baseball in 2021.

The Yankees are the projected top team in the American League, while the player who sits in third in AL Cy Young odds, Lucas Giolito (+500), pitches for a Chicago White Sox team projected to win near 90 games and challenge the Minnesota Twins for the American League Central crown. The Twins have a pair of starters in the top-8 AL Cy Young contenders in Jose Berrios (+1700) and Kenta Maeda (+2000).

Let's take a look at the full AL Cy Young odds heading into the 2021 season.
