In Tim Lincecum, the Giants have two of the last five NL Cy Young Award winners. While the former ace is listed by a Las Vegas betting website as a player prop bet option for the award this season, Lincecum doesn't have the best odds -- not even among his teammates.

Matt Cain's odds to win the 2013 NL Cy Young are 12-1, even with the Phillies' Cliff Lee and behind only Stephen Strasburg, Clayton Kershaw, Cole Hamels and Gio Gonzalez. Giants teammates Tim Lincecum (25-1), Ryan Vogelsong (25-1) and Madison Bumgarner (33-1) are also listed among the top 36 National League pitchers by Bovada.lv, leaving Barry Zito as the lone Giants starter without odds.
