We have seen one month of the 2021 Major League Baseball season roll by. The league has seen some great action, and certainly, fans are glad to be back. The game is in good hands with some elite players that are showing their skill day after day. After one month of the Major League Baseball season, it’s time to look at the most recent updated betting odds to win the major awards. First, let’s start with the National League MVP award.

Here are some of the recent contenders:

Ronald Acuna +275 -- The kid is an absolute stud. The Braves would like to see better team results through the first month, but you cannot argue with this guy's numbers. Through 96 at-bats, he has clubbed 9 home runs and drove in 20, all while hitting .333. He keeps this pace up, and the 23-year-old will win the MVP award.

Fernando Tatis Jr +750 -- Another youngster at the top of the odds. The 22-year-old has 8 home runs and just 12 runs batted in this season. But we have all seen what he can do once he gets out. There is no counting this guy out of any award.

Mookie Betts +800 -- Betts has just 3 home runs this season and 6 runs batted in. So, while right now - he looks as if he has no chance at winning this award, a monster May could certainly change that. Betts is 28 and already has a World Series under his belt with the Dodgers in 2020.

Jacob DeGrom +800 -- The only pitcher on the planet right now that has a chance to win this award. DeGrom simply does not get scored on. The problem for the Mets - they do not score for their stud right-hander.

Others to Consider:

Bryce Harper +1500 -- the injury that caused him to miss nearly a week of action hurt. Now, getting him comfortable in the batting box could be quite the task—all in all, another solid April for Harper.

Nolan Arenado +2500 -- The new Cardinals third baseman looks to be pretty comfortable in his new surroundings. While his numbers likely will never be what they were in Colorado, this dude can still mash with the best of them. He has protection in the lineup, which makes him and the Cardinals' offense dangerous.

Kris Bryant +3300 -- The 29 year old for the Cubs has turned back the clock a little bit in 2021 and is off to a torrid start. The Cubs are having a team season, but Bryant, with 9 home runs in 96 at-bats, along with his 22 runs batted in and .323 batting average, looks to be at or near the top of the players in the league so far. Can he keep it up through the dog days of summer will the biggest question for the former MVP.

It should be a fun month of May. Will we see the men separate from the boys, or will someone new step up and be in consideration? Stay tuned and enjoy the 2021 MLB season!
