World Series MVP Best Bets For Each Team

Mookie Betts may be the favorite in World Series MVP odds but that doesn’t mean he should be looked at as the best bet for this prop.

That’s because baseball is such a finicky sport and any player can impact a game – it wouldn’t be shocking to see Betts struggle in the series but for the Los Angeles Dodgers to end up crushing it. As for betting on pitchers for this prop, it’s not inconceivable that one could win but the probability is low for a pitcher to be so outstanding that he jumps the queue as favorite. Stephen Strasburg won the award last year for the Nationals, but since 2000, only five pitchers have accomplished this feat.

That’s why the players that bettors should be looking at for World Series MVP odds are guys who hit with power like Randy Arozarena (+2000) or Max Muncy (+2200). Arozarena has been a revelation for Tampa Bay, hitting seven home runs in the 2020 postseason, including some clutch ones against the Houston Astros in their American League Championship Series.

Muncy is another player with a flair for the dramatic with his ability to come up clutch in key moments. The first baseman has been hitting in the heart of the order for the Dodgers for the last three seasons and has 82 home runs in 336 career games in Dodger blue.

World Series MVP Long-Shot Bets For Each Team

Two long shots in World Series MVP odds who could really put some money in your pocket are the Dodgers’ Justin Turner (+2400) and the Rays’ Brandon Lowe (+1800). Much like Muncy, Turner has a flair for the dramatic, is hitting in the middle of the Dodgers order and has the power to take any Rays pitcher deep.

For the Rays, Lowe has to be considered now after hitting two home runs in Game 2 and leading Tampa to the win. During the regular season, the second baseman was easily Tampa Bay’s best positional player. Lowe led the Rays in home runs, RBIs and OPS and is excellent defensively. If he gets hot, he could very well take this award home should the Rays win the 2020 World Series.
