The 2021 MLB season is now two months complete, and it’s time to revisit some future betting picks and predictions. The 2021 AL MVP is one of the top futures betting markets to look at, and it does appear to be a wide-open race.

Mike Trout was the clear favorite to win the 2021 AL MVP race prior to the season, but an injury will leave him sidelined for a number of weeks. There are still a pair of clear front runners to win the 2021 AL MVP Award, but that could change in the next few weeks. 

Shohei Ohtani (+140)

It is another member of the Los Angeles Angels that is now the front runner to win the 2021 AL MVP Award. Shohei Ohtani is now listed at +140 to win the AL MVP as he continues to put up big numbers at the plate and on the mound.

The fact that Ohtani is able to rack up stats in two categories will give him a big edge over the competition. Ohtani is one pace to shatter some MLB records held by Babe Ruth, another famous two-way player. 

The Los Angeles Angels have struggled to win games this season, and that could affect his candidacy as the season moves along. 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+250)

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is second on the list of front runners, but that could change by the end of June. Guerrero Jr. has been on an absolute tear, and he is now the MLB leader in home runs. 

The Toronto Blue Jays should be in the playoff race all season long, and winning the AL East Division could help Guerrero earn some votes. If the Blue Jays were to win that tough division, it would likely be because their young star had a monster season. 

Byron Buxton, Xander Bogaerts (+2000)

Buxton and Bogaerts are two of the young faces of baseball, and both will likely be in the MVP conversation for years to come. It remains to be seen if either player has what it takes to win the award this season, but they are clearly in the mix. 

Aaron Judge, Mike Trout (+2500)

Judge and Trout continue to show up on the list, but injuries are going to hurt their candidacy this season. Judge has already missed some time with some various ailments, and Trout is out of the lineup for weeks.

There is no doubt that these are two of the top players in the American League, but they have to stay healthy to rack up enough stats to have a shot at winning this award. 

Jose Ramirez (+3000)

Jose Ramirez of the Cleveland Indians makes this list, but he still trails the front runners by a wide margin. If the Indians stay in the playoff race in the AL Central, that could help shorten the MP odds for Ramirez.

At the time of this writing, Ramirez has 13 home runs and 31 RBIs, and he has propelled the Indians on a great run since the beginning of May.
