(The Spread) – Who will win the 2012 National League and 2012 American League MVP awards this season? Let’s check out the odds.

There are only two candidates for the 2012 American League MVP. Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels is +120 and Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers is the favorite to win the award at -150.

Cabrera currently leads the AL in batting average at .331, while Trout is listed second in the American League with a .323 average. Cabrera is also second behind only Texas Rangers’ slugger Josh Hamilton for home runs with 42, and is first in RBI with 133. In fact, Cabrera leads all major league batters with 133 runs batted in.

Bet 2012 MLB MVP Odds

There are more than two MVP candidates in the National League this year. Giants catcher Buster Posey is a money line favorite at +125, while Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates is +200 and Ryan Braun of the Brewers is +250. The long shot to win this year’s NL MVP candidate is Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who is +1000.

If you throw out Melky Cabrera’s numbers, McCutchen is leading the National League in batting average with a .336 mark, while Posey is second with a .332 average. Molina is third with a .321 average while Braun is hitting .318. Braun is also leading the NL in home runs with 40, and runs batted in with 108. (San Diego’s Chase Headley also has 108 RBIs through Monday’s games.)
