The biggest jewel of the baseball offseason will probably be free agent Bryce Harper who will have several suitors trying to make him an extremely wealthy man.

Bovada released their latest Vegas odds on Wednesday and have the Cubs with the highest chance (EVEN) to land the standout slugger.

Other frontrunners to land his services include the Dodgers (+500), Phillies (+550), Yankees (+600), Nationals (+700), Boston (+1100), Angels (+1200), and Giants (+1600).

This would be a huge move by the North Siders if they went for Harper and decided that their current squad just wasn't enough offensively. It could happen as the current roster configuration scored 0 or 1 runs per game over 25 percent of the time this season. Of course, they would have a stable of outfielders and would have to do some drastic moves to make it work.

Harper hit .247 with 34 homers, 100 RBI in 159 games this season. He is a six-time All-Star that won the National League MVP award in 2015.
