The 2012 NL Most Valuable Player helped the Giants sweep the 2012 World Series. While the experts aren't expecting that to happen again, they're giving Buster Posey a better chance to repeat than his team.

Posey has 12-1 odds to win the 2013 NL MVP Award, according to Las Vegas betting website Bovada.lv, while the Giants own 14-1 odds to repeat.
