Baseball provides bettors with a number of different ways to bet over the course of the season.
Instead of getting into the MLB betting lines, it may be worth taking a look at some futures bets, which have already changed quite a bit in the young season.
Here’s a look at the updated odds for this year’s National League Cy Young.
NL Cy Young Odds
Sandy Alcantara – Marlins (-10000)
Last Week: Sandy Alcantara (14-9) suffered a tough loss in his September 30 start in Milwaukee, dropping a 1-0 decision to the Brewers at American Family Field. The much-anticipated pitchers’ duel between the Marlins right-hander and Brewers ace Corbin Burnes lived up to its advanced billing, with both pitchers turning in dominant performances. Alcantara worked eight innings, giving up just one earned run on five hits. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter.
This Week: Though projected to start the Marlins’ final game of the campaign against Atlanta, manager Don Mattingly announced on Saturday that Alcantara would not pitch again this season, opting to rest his star pitcher. The Marlins workhorse finishes the season with a sparkling 2.28 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 228.2 innings (32 starts) with six complete games.
Julio Urias – Dodgers (+10000)
Last Week: Julio Urias (17-7) pitched six shutout innings in his September 28 start but did not factor in the decision as the Dodgers edged the San Diego Padres 1-0 in ten innings. The left-hander struck out five and walked two, lowering his ERA to 2.17 – tops in the NL among qualified pitchers.
This Week: Urias is scheduled to face the Colorado Rockies at home on Tuesday before toeing the rubber in the postseason the following week.
Zac Gallen – Diamondbacks (+10000)
Last Week: Zac Gallen (12-3) turned in another solid performance in his September 28 start at Houston but did not factor in the decision, as the Diamondbacks downed the Astros 5-2 in 10 innings at Minute Maid Park. The right-hander tossed seven innings, surrendering two runs on six hits while striking out six. He walked one.
This Week: Gallen has enjoyed a career season and is scheduled to start on Tuesday in Milwaukee – a potentially critical game for the Brew Crew, who find themselves two games behind the Philadelphia Phillies in the battle for the final NL Wild Card berth, each team with three games remaining. Should this game matter, Craig Counsell’s club will have their hands full with the Diamondbacks ace, who has not given up more than two earned runs in any of his last ten starts.
