MLB National League Cy Young Odds & Betting Lines


The MLB National League Cy Young award is one of the more famous Major League Baseball achievements we look forward to each season.

The Cy Young award is given to the best pitcher in the MLB, one from each of the American and National Leagues. We are focusing on the latter – the best pitcher in the National League who will receive the Cy Young award.

The Cy Young award was established in 1956, and initially was awarded to just one pitcher in the entire Major League Baseball league.

It wasn’t until 1967 when the dual Cy Young awards were introduced, allowing one player from either division to win.

The Baseball Writers’ Association of America decide the recipients, by voting for their top five players and ranking them from first to fifth. 

These writers and media personnel tend to focus on earned run average, WHIP and strikeouts per nine innings, instead of a pitcher’s win-loss record.

It’s always exciting to try to predict the winner of either Cy Young award as there is so much talent in the National League.

  • 2019Jacob deGrom (NYM)

HOW TO BET ON MLB National League Cy Young

If you’re on this page, you are looking to bet on the MLB NL Cy Young award recipients, so you’ll need to create some kind of strategy and understand how things work before doing so.

First, you will want to study the National League pitchers and understand their strengths and weaknesses, strength of schedule, how they might perform this season if they’re overcoming injury, there are many factors to consider. 

Next, we advise monitoring this page and the odds. The odds will list each player’s odds of winning the award, and you will want to make sure you keep an eye on fluctuations – is there something the oddsmakers are seeing that you might not? Follow some MLB beat writers if you don’t have time to study stats all day. 

These MLB NL Cy Young odds will fluctuate as the season progresses, first showcasing the top talent – the usual suspects, if you will. You might start seeing some relief pitchers creep onto the board if they are starting to steal some of the limelight and getting on the mound more. 

The odds will change, so if you see a player who is starting to gain some recognition, capture a few more winning records and has excellent stats, we recommend scooping up some underdog odds while you can.

If a favored player suddenly falls into a slump or is having an off season, you might want to think twice, or cash out your bets if you already placed a wager! Injuries also can be huge brick walls between you and your MLB NL Cy Young award winnings if you (and the pitchers) aren’t careful.

Watch out for injury prone pitchers, they will be huge liabilities on the oddsboard if you aren’t keeping an eye out.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
