It’s been a busy couple of days for the Philadelphia Phillies. After signing Kyle Schwarber, the team announced that Obudel Herrera would be returning to the franchise. Baseball is back and the Phils look poised to improve on their 82-80 campaign in 2021. But how have the odds changed since baseball has been given the green flag?
World Series winners
The Phillies are middle of the park when it comes to how vegas sees them. Their odds have come down quite some way over the past few days thanks to the moves made by the team, but they won’t make them a contender overnight.
The thing stopping the Phils climbing to the top of the national league is simply how heavily competitive it is. The fact that the Mets and Braves are also housed in the NL East is probably why the odds to win the NL and East have barely changed. They have the eighth lowest odds to win the National League, again, around middle of the pack.
Bryce Harper MVP: +900
Previous : +1000
Can Bryce Harper repeat as NL MVP? The odds currently say he has the joint third-best chance with Mookie Betts. Juan Sotto is +280 to win, which says an awful lot about the regard in which the Washington star is held.
Zack Wheeler +1000
Aaron Nola +1200
Wheelsdays will be back soon enough and Phillies fans will be hoping that Wheeler can go one better in the Cy Young ranking this season and win the whole thing. He’s currently trailing Max Schertzer and Jacob DeGrom along with last year’s winner, Corbin Burnes.
Rookie of the year
Bryson Stott: +850
Currently the third-favorite to win the award, Stott’s odds are short here. He’s behind Oneil Cruz and Keibert Ruiz.
