The 2022 MLB season moves into May and futures odds show a trio on top of the American League Cy Young race on FanDuel Sportsbook.

As the delayed MLB season went to bat on April 7, Justin Verlander was +2000 to win the AL Cy Young award. But the Astros 39-year-old ace is moving up and going strong. Verlander is +700 as co-favorite to win AL Cy Young with Shane Bierer (+700). Right on their heels is Garrit Cole (+750), who started the season as favorite.

Also moving up is Kevin Gausman. His Cy Young odds have been cut in half to +1000 pitching for his new team in Toronto. Guasman is 1-1 in four starts with a 2.19 ERA and 31 Ks in 24.2 IP. His Blue Jays teammate Alex Manoah has also moved up sharply to +1200. New Los Angeles Angles pitcher Noah Syndergard has also seen his longshot odds cut in half to +3000.

Verlander is 2-1 with a 1.73 ERA and a 28/4 K-to-BB ratio. His 0.69 WHIP leads the AL just in front of longshot Joe Ryan (+6000) of the Twins, who has league-lows in ERA (1.17) and BAA (.132). Same with longshot Michael Kopech (+3500), who was a best bet to move up and contend in the Cy Young race after starting the season at +6000. Kopech is top 5 in the AL in ERA (1.42) and BAA (.148) with 18 Ks in 19 innings.

Bieber is 1-1 with a 2.28 ERA and 22 Ks in 21.1 innings and a .188 BAA. Gerrit Cole is 1-0 in four starts with a 4.00 ERA and a 21/8 K-to-BB ratio in 18 innings. Manoah is 4-0 with a 1.44 ERA and 25 Ks in 25 innings with a .170 BAA.
