Oddsmakers Now Favor Giants To Sign Bryce Harper

Oddsmakers Now Favor Giants To Sign Bryce Harper

Whatever team (s) end up signing Harper and/or Machado also figure to be leading contenders unless one of the aforementioned favorites score one or both to improve their own odds at online betting sites.

In early November, Nightengale said you "can bank on" Harper signing with the Phillies.

Major League Baseball insider Bob Nightengale believes it's become a two-team race for Harper, who has been linked to several different Major League Baseball franchises over the past couple of months. However, it sounds like Nightengale thinks the Giants have the edge.

San Francisco is coming off two of their worst seasons in a decade, but they improved to win 73 games previous year.

On the flip side, San Francisco is a 90-minute flight to Harper's hometown of Las Vegas, and the handsome ballpark averaged 39,000 fans previous year.

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians demonstrated Monday to mark the 40th anniversary of the country's Islamic Revolution. Last year, Bolton told a meeting of Iranian exiles that "before 2019, we here. will celebrate in Iran".

Really, no one knows except maybe Harper himself, and he's being stingy with the details.

"With the Giants moving in and all the optimism, I do believe it's a coin flip".

The Giants are reportedly interested in offering Harper a massive short-term contract, while the Phillies could give him the long-term deal he's seeking.

"I think if it's close he goes to San Francisco, if there's a huge gap, it's tough to walk away from that kind of money". The Phillies have always been interested in inking Harper to a massive contract, bu the Giants are a relative newcomer to the race.

The Astros (+800) and Dodgers (+900) join the Red Sox and Yankees atop the betting board to win the World Series at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com in 2019 while top free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado have still yet to make their decisions on where they will play this season.
