The three leading MVP favorites to start the season in the American League look like they will continue to be Most Valuable Player favorites if they stay healthy. Heading into May, Los Angeles Angels stars Shohei Ohtani (+280) and Mike Trout (+650) will try to beat out Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+440).

Ohtanii is batting just .238 with 3 HRs and 10 RBIs, but his pitching and popularity keeps him on top as Shohei has 30 K's in 19.1 innings and is holding hitters to a .213 batting average.

Trout is hitting .352 and leads the American League with a 1.256 OPS. Guerrero is hitting .309 with 5 HRs, but New York Yankees 1B Anthony Rizzo (+5000) leads the AL with 8 home runs.

Jose Ramirez (+1500) and Byron Buxton (+1500) are next with 6 HRs after Buxton's monstrous 469-foot walk-off blast kept the Twins' current 6-game winning streak going this week.

Risers to watch include Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (+6000), who is hitting .392 with a league-leading 29 hits heading into action on April 29. Seattle Mariners 1B Ty France (+5000) is batting .365 with 21 RBIs -- both top three in the AL.

Here are the current American League MVP odds at FanDuel Sportsbook after 20 games and heading into May.
