Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is probably the face of baseball as he led the Cubs as they won the World Series and also took home the National League MVP award in only his second season in the big leagues.

So could he do it again? Vegas oddsmakers at Westgate Las Vegas Superbook thinks so as they have him listed with the highest odds to win the prestigious award at 5/2.

Other contenders include Nolan Arenado (4/1), Bryce Harper (4/1), Cory Seager (6/1), Yoenis Cespedes (10/1) Anthony Rizzo (12/1), Daniel Murphy (40/1), Paul Goldschmidt (15/1), Clayton Kershaw (15/1), Andrew McCutchen (100/1), Buster Posey (100/1), Kyle Schwarber (40/1), Giancarlo Stanton (10/1), and Joey Votto (100/1).

In 2016, Bryant hit .292 with 39 homers, 102 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of .385. In two seasons at the big league level, he has batted .284 with 65 homers, 201 RBIs, and .377 on-base percentage.

He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the first round (2nd overall) in the 2013 MLB Draft.
