After some major shuffling since New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom has been out with an injury, the National League Cy Young award race retains a betting favorite. Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler sits atop the NL Cy Young race with -120 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Bueher holds onto this widening lead from the last update to these betting odds, coming in favored over a pair of Milwaukee Brewers starting pitchers in Corbin Burnes (+200) and Brandon Woodruff (+500).

The race remains tight and there's plenty of time left for another shakeup considering one month in the MLB's regular season equates to about five or six starts for each pitcher.

Buehler ranks first in the betting odds after six brilliant starts in the month of August. The two-time All-Star didn't allow more than two earned runs in any of these starts, in addition to a trio of outings surrendering just one run.

With a magnificent 13-2 record in 15 decisions, Buehler owns a league-leading 2.05 ERA and 0.915 WHIP, ranking second in the National League. Of the trio on top, Burnes is the premier strikeout artist. He leads the NL with 12.23 strikeouts per nine innings in addition to his 2.27 ERA, which ranks second. Woodruff ranks third in the ERA race with his 2.35 mark.
