The best pitcher in the majors has extended his lead in the odds to win the NL Cy Young award at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Despite being just 2-2 with very little run support, New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom has dominated hitters with a league-best 0.51 ERA through five starts. The 6-foot 4 stud has allowed just 16 hits through 35 innings while striking out 59 batters. His 4 BB and 0.57 WHIP are elite. In deGrom's two losses, he allowed just one run in each contest, and was the losing pitcher as a huge favorite of at least -260 in game.

The Milwaukee Brewers have a pair of Cy Young contenders in Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff (+2000). Burnes was an unknown and long odds to start the season, but has surged up to +450. He's also 2-2 through five starts with a MLB-best 0.55 WHIP, as Burnes has allowed 16 hits and has yet to issue a walk in 29 1/3 innings. The converted reliever has 49 strikeouts, and his 1.37 ERA is second best in the National League. However, Burnes missed his last scheduled start on May 2, and was placed in the injured list (undisclosed). The Los Angeles Dodgers Trevor Bauer has fallen back to +1300.

deGrom won the NL Cy Young award in both 2018 and 2019, and he's extended his lead as the Cy Young favorite since the end of April. He's scheduled to make his next start at St. Louis May 4 as a $2 favorite at FanDuel Sportsbook.
