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 the Cy Young Award in both leagues per DraftKings Sportsbook.

AL Cy Young odds

New York Yankees star Gerrit Cole is the clear favorite at +450, with Cleveland Indians ace Shane Bieber listed second at +700. It’s hard to find a value play here with Cole so far ahead, but Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito at +1200 is worth a shot given how the team is expected to perform this year.

NL Cy Young odds

We stay in the Big Apple for the NL favorite, as it’s New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom. This guy has not gotten much help from his offense over the past few seasons, but he’s the clear top contender at +400. Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Walker Buehler is second at +800. After a down season for the San Diego Padres a year ago, Blake Snell represents a potential value play and bounce-back candidate at +2000.
