According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, McCutchen is a 5/7 favorite to win the National League MVP this season, while Cincinnati's Joey Votto has the next-best odds at 3/2. Paul Goldschmidt of Arizona is 5/1 and the current long shot to win this year's MVP in the National League is Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez.

McCutchen currently leads the Pirates in several key categories, including batting average, on base percentage and hits. Through Thursday night's games, he's hitting .313 with 16 home runs and 71 runs scored, while also totaling 24 stolen bases and sporting an on base percentage of .386. With Yadier Molina out for the Cardinals, McCutchen is the clear-cut favorite to win this year's MVP award.

Votto currently leads the Reds in batting average with .324 and has also collected the most hits with 135 and is leading the club in on base percentage at .438. He's slugged 17 home runs, has driven in 52 runners and has scored 77 times this season. He's also added four stolen bases despite lacking in overall speed.

As for Goldschmidt, he's having a breakout season in Arizona. He currently leads the Diamondbacks with a .299 batting average and has hit 26 home runs. He also leads Arizona in RBI with 90, on base percentage at .390, and hits with 125. He's carried the D-Backs to this point in the season, although it doesn't appear that the club will make the postseason with the red-hot Dodgers winning on a near-nightly basis.
