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

Zach Wheeler (+180) of the Philadelphia Phillies is the latest to move up, and he now is the slight favorite over Corbin Burnes (+350) and Walker Buehler (+350) at FanDuel Sportsbook,

Wheeler's two-hit, 11 strikeout complete game shutout over the rival New York Mets last weekend set the recent shakeup in the NL Cy Young race. Wheeler moved past last week's Cy Young favorite Buehler. Burnes also moved up again.

Wheeler leads the MLB in innings pitched (162.0) and strikeouts (187) while leading the NL in WAR (5.9). His 0.988 WHIP is just behind a number of his challengers. Wheeler's 2.56 ERA trails National League Cy Young contenders Buehler (2.13), Brandon Woodruff (2.18), Burnes (2.23), Freddy Peralta (2.26) and Kevin Gausman (2.29).

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