MLB Betting – AL Rookie of the Year Odds 2020

MLB Betting – AL Rookie of the Year Odds 2020

The thrill of wagering on sports is that you can go off script and hit it big every now and then. Those who threw down on Houston’s Yordan Alvarez to win the 2019 AL Rookie of the Year before the season started made a killing. Alvarez had long odds depending on which sportsbook you visited, but he showed just how unpredictable the game can be. Alvarez didn’t debut until June 9 when the Astros were 67 games into their season. He made the most of his brief time belting 27 homers with a .313 average in 87 games.
