Where will Bryce Harper and Manny Machado sign? Oddsmakers favor the Giants and Yankees
Putting some cash down on the Phillies seems like a good investment right now
Spring training camps open across Arizona and Florida this week (Bryce Harper and Manny Machado remain unsigned. It is preposterous to me that two 26-year-old megastars are unsigned as camp opens given all the money that is in the game today, but I digress.) and still
Harper's and Machado's continued unemployment gives oddsmakers another opportunity to lay down some betting lines on their next teams. Let's begin with Harper, courtesy of BetOnline (www.BetOnline.ag and @betonline_ag on Twitter). Odds listed as of 3 p.m. ET on Monday, Feb. 11:
Just to be clear, 10/1 odds means you'd win $10 for every $1 you bet should Harper re-sign with the Nationals. The Giants at 1/1 tells you the oddsmakers expect Harper to wind up in San Francisco..
Now here's Machado (again from BetOnline):
So the Phillies are 4/1 for Harper and 5/1 for Machado? Gosh, I feel like if you put a little money down on each, you're bound to walk away with something in your pocket. I would be stunned if Philadelphia did not sign at least one of two at this point.
Thus concludes the unsolicited betting advice from CBS Sports portion of the program.
