Individual Player Awards Odds

Now to some of the more fun futures! These are more readily available on apps like Draftkings and FanDuel. You can bet on quite a few Rockies to win Cy Youngs and MVPs. And even Brendan Rodgers can be a potential Rookie of the Year. So let’s see where the best values are:

MVP Award Odds for Rockies Players:

Nolan Arenado

  • +1600 at BetOnline.Ag
  • +1800 at DraftKings
  • +1700 at FanDuel

Trevor Story

  • +4000 at BetOnline.Ag
  • +4000 at DraftKings
  • +4000 at FanDuel

Charlie Blackmon

  • +10000 at DraftKings
  • +8000 at FanDuel

Nolan has always been close to winning an MVP but has never been good enough to break ahead of the pack. He’ll be a perennial Top 5 choice no matter what. But in a season this short? Anything can happen and he has a serious chance. We’ve already gone over how much is going to be going on for him this season and how well he’s performed in high leverage situations. He’s been extremely consistent every year and there should be no doubts that he’s going to perform highly again this season. He also has the appeal to both new school and old school fans, giving him more of a benefit of the doubt whether you’re looking at him through traditional stats or advanced stats. So if he outperforms his norms and stays golden at the hot corner? He’s going to be hard to beat.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a little more value then it may be worth it to throw some money down on Trevor Story. These odds of +4000 are a nice price for someone who I already thought was going to be more valuable to the Rockies in a full 2020 season. That was before the world got turned upside down, though, and things are a little bit different now. Arenado will still be the Rockies’ favorite to win MVP, but if Story’s in the conversation after 60 games then no one should be surprised.

Lines to Take:

Nolan Arenado MVP at Draftkings (+1800)
Trevor Story MVP at BetOnline/Draftkings/Fanduel (+4000)

Cy Young Award Odds for Rockies Pitchers:

German Marquez

  • +4000 at BetOnline.Ag
  • +6600 at DraftKings
  • +5000 at FanDuel

Jon Gray

  • +6600 at DraftKings
  • +6500 at FanDuel

Marquez and Gray are both worthy of being in the conversation of the Cy Young Award. But we’ve seen time and time again that it’s almost too tough for a Rockies pitcher to win this award. We’ve only really had two real chances in recent history (Ubaldo Jimenez in 2010 and Kyle Freeland in 2018) and both were at least mentioned as serious contenders but neither were able to eclipse their competition. You have to be too good to win this award in Colorado and a shortened season only makes that more unlikely. The odds seem appealing for a nice payday, but I wouldn’t put down much money if you’re wanting a serious payout.

Lines to Take:

None

Brendan Rodgers of the Colorado Rockies
Brendan Rodgers of the Colorado Rockies /

NL Rookie of the Year Award Odds

Brendan Rodgers

  • +1500 at BetOnline

So you can only bet on this on BetOnline and they don’t even have his name spelled correctly (Brendan “Rogers” if you’re wanting to bet on there). He’s got a couple of Dodgers ahead of him (Gavin Lux, Dustin May) and man, wouldn’t it be sweet to beat the Dodgers out of something for once?

Rodgers may have a tough road getting there, though. Last season in limited opportunities he didn’t do so hot before getting injured. But there’s still plenty to get excited about when it comes to his game. To get more opportunities, though, he’ll need to see McMahon take over 1B in more of a full-time role and to beat out Garrett Hampson for time at 2B (either that or Hampson needs to get more playing time in the outfield).

The odds aren’t terribly high and they’re not to the point where you can throw down a small amount and hope for a large payday, but I wouldn’t be against doing something like $10 to turn it into $150. If Rodgers gets the playing time and performs as we’ve hoped he would then he has a realistic shot at this.

Lines to Take:

Rodgers NL ROY at BetOnline (+1500)
