Opening Day of the 2022 MLB season is rapidly approaching, which means baseball fans looking to bet on futures should head over to FanDuel Sportsbook. The opening odds for American League MVP are led by reigning award winner and two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels.

Ohtani leads all candidates with odds set at +390, but he is followed closely behind by teammate Mike Trout (+480) and Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+480). The fact that no other player even has odds set below +2000 suggests a three-man race is going to take place this summer.

Of course, Ohtani broke out in 2021 by slashing .257/.372/.592 with 46 home runs, 100 RBIs and a league-leading 8 triples. The 27-year-old also posted a 9-2 record on the mound (3.18 ERA). Meanwhile, Guerrero smacked a whopping 48 home runs last season and Trout has already earned three AL MVP trophies in his career.
