The battle for NL MVP is essentially a two-man race at the All-Star break, as two players putting up some impressive numbers are duking it out at the top.

Los Angeles Dodgers' slugger Cody Bellinger (-110) has the best odds to win the 2019 NL MVP at the break, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, Milwaukee Brewers' superstar, and reigning NL MVP, Christian Yelich (+170) isn't too far behind.

Both Yelich and Bellinger are putting up some gaudy numbers, as they rank first and second in MLB in home runs (31 and 30, respectively) while also ranking in the top five in batting average, slugging percentage, and on-base percentage.

One thing currently in Bellinger's favor as far as MVP odds are concerned is his team's record. The Dodgers have an MLB-best 60-32 record at the All-Star break, while the Brewers are just 47-44.

Things can certainly change if Yelich continues producing the way he has for the better part of the past two seasons, but if Bellinger keeps up his phenomenal performance, and the Dodgers continue to dominate the NL, the MVP trophy could be moving to Los Angeles later this year.
