2021 Cy Young Odds Tracker

Cole on Diamond a Gem

Is this finally to be the year that Gerrit Cole wins the Cy Young? With a 5-1 record, he’s definitely pitching like it is.

The Yankees ace has hit double digits in strikeouts in four of his past five starts and five of the last seven. In most cases, playing the over on 9.5 strikeouts would be a risk. With Cole, it’s almost a guarantee.

Pick: Gerrit Cole over 9.5 strikeouts (-115)

Ring That Bell

Washington Nationals first baseman Josh Bell has faced Chicago Cubs righthander Adbert Alzolay four times. He’s 2-for-4 during those at-bats.

Both hits were home runs. Bell has also driven in five runs off of the Cubs hurler.

Pick: Josh Bell 1+ home run (+500)
