MLB Cy Young Award Odds Update –

July 19, 2022

The All-star break is here and what better time to recount the season and see where we are in the hunt for the most prestigious award in pitching? There are some clear front runners and with just 2/5 of the regular season left, they wil most likely take the prize. However, we have seen plenty of front-runners flounder over the late stretch.

In the AL it really is between Tampa’s Shane McClanahan and Houston’s Justin Verlander. McClanahan has the slightly better ERA (1.71 to Verlander’s 1.89) but Verlander has the better record (12-3) vs Shane’s (10-3). Both pitcher’s teams are fighting hard to get their team into the post-season.

Sandy Alcantara

There is one clear frontrunner in the National League. Miami’s Sandy Alcantara has been lights out in 2022. His ERA is 1.76 and his record is 9-4. That record would be better if he played on a better team.

Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes is having a great season as well. He has an ERA of 2.14 but his record is just 7-4. A lot can change between now and the end of the season however.
