The 2022 MLB season is back, as the league and MLBPA have reached a tentative agreement on a new CBA. With action set to begin April 7, here’s a look at the contenders to win MVP in both leagues per DraftKings Sportsbook.

AL MVP odds

Los Angeles Angels teammates Shohei Ohtani (+300) and Mike Trout (+350) lead the way in the AL. These two have not been able to translate their individual talents into team success but 2022 could be the year it all clicks. Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is up there at +400, but that’s where there’s a big dropoff in odds. New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is fourth in AL odds at +1500, so the top three are clear per the oddsmakers. Houston Astors star Jose Altuve could be a possible value play at +2800.

NL MVP odds

Washington Nationals star Juan Soto and San Diego Padres phenom Fernando Tatis Jr. are both atop the NL MVP table at +350. Neither team was able to make the playoffs last season, so that could be a detriment to both players when it comes to their award candidacy. Those two are clearly ahead of everyone else, as Atlanta Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr. checks into third at the moment at +900. Milwaukee Brewers slugger Christian Yelich, who has won MVP before, is a nice value play at +3000.
