Chris Johnson is leading the National League in batting average. But will it last?

The batting title race in the National League is particularly close this season. Even though Chris Johnson currently leads the league with a .330 batting average, there are four other players within nine points of him. In fact, Michael Cuddyer is just one point behind the Atlanta Braves' third baseman.

Considering there is still a half of a month left in the regular season, any one of the top-five batting average leaders could land on top by month's end.

Read on to see the odds for each contender to win the National League batting title.

 

Odds are based upon a combination of yearly performance as well as September performance (specifically batting average and BABIP). 

All statistics (including August 16 games) sourced from Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com.
