The AL Cy Young award goes to the pitcher in the AL that is voted to be the best, and we have had a number of great winners of that award over the years. BetQL will have you covered throughout the entire season with all of our best bets and predictions as to who will win the 2023 AL Cy Young.
Last season, there was a clear winner of the AL Cy Young award, and that was Houston Astros starter Justin Verlander. Despite coming back from Tommy John surgery, Verlander was still easily the best pitcher in baseball at the ripe age of 39. He went 18-4 with an incredible 1.75 ERA in 28 starts to win his third Cy Young. He was the first pitcher to win the award after not pitching the previous season. He beat out Chicago White Sox ace Dylan Cease for the award.
The NL Cy Young award goes to the pitcher in the NL that is voted to be the best, and we have had a number of great winners of that award over the years. BetQL will have you covered throughout the entire season with all of our best bets and predictions as to who will win the 2023 NL Cy Young.
Last season, there was a unanimous leader for the award. Miami Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara was a workhorse all year for the Marlins. He led Major League Baseball with 228 2/3 innings pitched and tossed six complete games, more than any MLB team. Alcantara finished second in the National League in ERA (2.28), sixth in WHIP (.980) and fourth in strikeouts (207).
Below, you'll see current odds to win the American League Cy Young award (DraftKings odds as of Sept. 5).
Luis Castillo +340: Castillo is coming on strong as of late, and pushing Cole for the AL Cy Young award. The Mariners have been winning a lot more, too, while the Yankees have been losing. This is essentially a two-man race between the two, so I will take the value with Castillo.
Below, you'll see current DraftKings odds to win the National League Cy Young award (as of Sept. 5).
Spencer Strider +450: Strider has been the best pitcher in the NL this season, even if his numbers don't say it. He's been very unlucky a lot this season, and at +450, I think there is value there as we move down the stretch.

If you are new to betting, then you may not understand what the AL & NL Cy Young is. You've come to the right place, as we will explain everything you need to know here to bet on the AL & NL Cy Young. The MLB is split up between two leagues, the American League and National League. In each of these leagues, a Cy Young winner will be crowned as the best pitcher in his league that year. This award usually goes to the lowest ERA, but a strikeout pitcher can win it every now and then. Basically, the Cy Young goes to the best pitcher in each league. Keep in mind, this is a season-long bet, so your money will be tied up until a winner is announced.
Example: You log on to DraftKings Sportsbook and go to the MLB player awards future tab. You scroll to Cy Young award and see a whole bunch of players listed with their prices. Consulting this page, you find that you really like a best bet on Zac Gallen to win NL Cy Young at +1500. If he wins the award at the end of the season, you win the bet!
You can place these bets at any sportsbook of your choosing, but I recommend using whatever book gives you the best number. If one book is offering +750, while the other is offering +850 and you want to bet it, always take the +850.
