Mets ace Jacob deGrom betting favorite to win NL MVP
New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom is producing a season for the ages and is currently responsible for a ridiculous 0.56 ERA and 0.53 WHIP, the league’s best for those categories according to ESPN stats.
Bettors take note of this.
On Monday afternoon, BetOnline.ag ranked deGrom as the favorite at +200 to win the National League’s MVP award, ahead of San Diego Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. (+225). By comparison, Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has a +100 record to win American League MVP honors.
“He comes out every game and just shuts down the other team,” William Hill US second trade manager Adam Pullen told ESPN of deGrom. âIt’s hard for people to understand that he’s no ordinary player, but he’s so dominant. For a pitcher to win the MVP, you have to have dominant stats, and his stats are more than amazing. . “
The 32-year-old left the start against the Padres on Friday with right flexor tendonitis, but Mike Rosenstein of NJ Advance Media for NJ.com noted that deGrom remained scheduled to take the bump for Wednesday’s game against the Cubs from Chicago unless it suffers a setback the first few days of the week.
