Odds as of October 31
Why Is Corey Seager favored to win World Series mVP?
If you possess a pair of eyes, you'll understand why Seager is the World Series MVP favorite. The Rangers shortstop had a potential AL MVP-caliber regular season (33 HR, 1.013 OPS, 6.9 bWAR), but struggled early in the postseason.
Water has since found its level. Seager went 8-for-31 in the ALCS vs Houston with four extra-base hits, including two key homers. In three World Series games, Seager is batting 3-for-10 with a home run, pushing his MVP odds into minus-money territory.
