Nearly a month into the 2016 MLB season, sports books are shuffling the MLB odds for the Cy Young Award winner. Here's a look at updated priced for the AL winners.

AL Cy Young
In the AL, the race is wide open with six pitchers currently priced under 10-to-1 odds: Chris Sale (4-1), Felix Hernandez (15-2), Corey Kluber (8-1), Dallas Keuchel (8-1) and David Price (8-1). The biggest mover up the board is Detroit’s Jordan Zimmerman, who went from 50-1 to 12-1 following a 3-0 start not allowing a run. Falling is the stock of Chris Archer, who dropped from 9-1 to 20-1 after an ugly 0-4, 7.32 April line.

Here’s a look at the AL Cy Young updated MLB odds for the top 25 listings, including their Opening Day numbers:

Thoughts
Cole Hamels has some value at 10-1. The three-time NL Cy Young candidate is 3-0, 2.52 ERA to start the season, and is pitching in front of the AL West favorites. Playing in Arlington may hurt his numbers a bit, but with good run support and his ability to pitch deep into games, a 20-win season is not out of the question. The Rangers are 15-3 in Hamels’ starts since last season, the southpaw compiling 13 quality outings in the AL. This wraps it up for the CY Young Odds Update.
