On Thursday, SportsBetting.ag released odds for MLB's 2020 home run leader, as well as Most Valuable Player and Cy Young awards for each league.

Mike Trout has the lowest odds to win MVP in his career. Last year, he started the season with 5/2, or +250, odds. Here are his odds for this season and the six prior:

2020: +100
2019: +250
2018: +125
2017: +130
2016: +150
2015: +300
2014: +500

National League newcomer, Mookie Betts, is a 5/1 favorite to bring an MVP award to L.A. for the second straight season. Last year's winner, Cody Bellinger, has 8/1 odds.

Gerrit Cole and Jacob DeGrom top the board for Cy Young odds, and Aaron Judge is the favorite to lead the league in home runs.

Additionally, the sportsbook has set odds on Pete Rose being reinstated by Major League Baseball following the submission of a recent 20-page petition. The odds of reinstatement are 5/1, or +500, while the chances of it not happening are 1/10.
