This MLB Team Is Heavily Favored To Land Bryce Harper

David Hookstead | Reporter

The Chicago Cubs are extremely heavy favorites to land the talents of Bryce Harper.

The odds from OddsShark are as follows:

  • Cubs EVEN
  • LAD +500
  • PHI +550
  • NYY +600
  • WSH +700
  • BOS +1100
  • LAA +1200
  • SF +1600

For those of you who might not be big into gambling, it’s extremely rare to see odds like this. The Dodgers are in the second slot, but in reality, they’re not close at all. The oddsmakers are pretty much telling you it’d be shocking at this point if Harper didn’t sign with the Cubs.

Harper had several great years with the Washington Nationals. The man has been the face of the franchise ever since he arrived in the majors in 2012.

Unfortunately for fans in D.C., there’s a better chance I’m a billionaire when I wake up tomorrow than there is that Harper is playing for them next season. The writing has been on the wall for a very long time when it came to his exit. (RELATED: Here’s How Fans Reacted When Bryce Harper Took The Field As A National For Possibly The Last Time)

I’m not a baseball expert, but I’m kind of shocked the Yankees don’t have better odds. It seemed like that was all the talk was about them a while. I guess it’s a fluid situation, and the Cubs are now expected to be the team to hand him a massive contract.

Wherever he ends up, I have no doubt he’ll dominate.
