Another exciting MLB season is set to start, and pitching will carry the top teams to the playoffs. So a hot topic each season is the top pitchers in each league, and which proven performers will battle for the Cy Young Award. The National League Cy Young odds at FanDuel Sportsbook show some strong candidates at the top.
The MLB season starts with New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom (+350) as the favorite, followed by Trevor Bauer (+750) in his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Bauer was a former No. 3 overall draft pick out of UCLA, and won the 2020 NY Cy Young Award. Jacob deGrom won the NL Cy Young in 2018 and 2019.
Both those starters pitch for top NL teams with high season win totals, showing the Dodgers (103.5) and Mets (91) to be among the favorites in the National League.
Other NL Cy Young leading contenders include 36-year-old three-time NL Cy Young winner Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals, Walker Buehler of the Los Angles Dodgers and Yu Davish, pitching his first season for the San Diego Padres.
