The 2021 baseball season is winding down, and teams preparing for their last push into the playoffs. That also means the regular season individual award races are really taking shape, and none is bigger than the MVP race. While it seems clear Shohei Ohtani has the American League side all locked up, things on the National League side are a little closer.

San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. is currently the odds-on favorite to win the award at -280 on FanDuel Sportsbook. He's trailed by Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper (+750) and Atlanta Braves first basemen Freddie Freeman (+900).

Tatis has put together a monster season, despite missing some time due to injury. He is currently slashing .282/.365/.640 with 36 home runs (NL lead) and 81 RBIs, all in just 101 games played.

While Tatis certainly has a big lead, anything could happen over the last month of the season. Let's take a look at the full list of odds to win the NL MVP.
