Where the odd stand here now in the national league for mvp. Fernando tat tease. Junior remains your favorite at minus two fifty in second place. Bryce harper at plus three eighty behind him freddy freeman at plus nine fifty.

Garrett cole still the favourite at minus one thirty three bobby ray closing in all the way down to plus one sixty to win the award and then the most up for grabs award. We have right now.
