2024 MLB Odds: Paul Skenes takes on NL ROY favorite; Imanaga drops

We’ve just gone over two months MLB season, and the Rookie of the Year betting table continues to see major fluctuations.

Shota Imanaga Forest fire season begins. He gave up just five hits in his first nine career starts, putting him ahead of the NL ROY odds board, where he was the favorite for more than a month.

However, after a few rough starts for Imanaga, the odds have changed dramatically.

The surge Paul Skenes is currently the favorite to win the NL ROY.

Entering the professional leagues, Skenes has high expectations because he is the No. 1 pick of the 2023 MLB Draft.

After being called up on May 11, the dynamic right-hander has started eight matches for the team. Pittsburgh Pirates. In those starts, Skenes shined with a 4-0 record, 2.14 ERA and 61 strikeouts.

Before his debut, Skenes’ NL ROY odds were +2500. He is now the favorite to win the award at -210.

Let’s take a look at the National Championship ROY betting table at DraftKings Sportsbook as of June 25.
