In a matter of weeks, Jacob deGrom's already dominant NL Cy Young lead has been extended. The New York Mets ace is 7-2 through 14 starts with a minuscule 0.95 ERA. He's the overwhelming favorite (-700), according to National League Cy Young odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.

deGrom added 14 more strikeouts in 7.0 innings against the Atlanta Braves on July 1 despite allowing 3 runs in the first inning and then shutting down the Braves the rest of the way. It was the first time deGrom has allowed three runs or more in a game this season.

The Mets (41-36) lead the NL East nearly halfway through the season and deGrom is also the leading favorite to win the NL's Most Valuable Player award.

The three-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young award winner is nearly certain to win this award for the third time in his career. The dominant right-hander has 136 strikeouts in 85.0 innings for a league-best 14.4 punch outs per nine innings. He's allowed just 35 hits for an MLB-best 0.541 WHIP.

Here's a look at the updated odds for the NL Cy Young race on FanDuel Sportsbook.
