The MLB odds continue to adjust for season-long awards, and FanDuel Sportsbook has you covered for all the updates. The battle for the National League Cy Young remains tight. Season-long leader Jacob deGrom remains sidelined with injury, and that opened the door to five pitchers to make their move.

That includes last week's favorite Zach Wheeler, who has fallen back to +350 behind new leader Walker Buehler (+150) and Corbin Burnes (+200).

That trio is on top, and Wheeler's Philadelphia Phillies are playing catch-up for a division title in the weak NL East while Burnes and the Milwaukee Brewers have the NL Central in hand. Buehler and the Los Angeles Dodgers sport the second-best record in baseball but still trail the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants.

Buehler is 13-2 and has allowed 2 runs or less in eight straight starts to lower his ERA to an NL and MLB-best 2.11. Burnes (2.13 ERA) is right behind and ranks second in WHIP (0.913). Burnes also has a NL-best 12.4 strikeouts per nine innings with Wheeler (168.2) and Buehler (162.1) leading the league in innings pitched.

Here's a look at the current NL Cy Young contenders and odds to win from FanDuel Sportsbook.
