It seems Vegas (and gamblers) are nowhere near as optimistic about the Twins signing Ohtani as folks are locally. I got this in my email this week:
BetDSI.eu has opened odds on which team will sign Shohei Ohtani as well as his projected season stats for batting average and earned run average. Oddsmakers view the Yankees as the team most likely to sign Ohtani, but the odds are tight among the top 4 contenders.
Shohei Ohtani team for 2018 MLB season (must sign with MLB team for action)
New York Yankees +175
Los Angeles Dodgers +300
Seattle Mariners +350
Texas Rangers +500
Tampa Bay Rays +1200
Los Angeles Angels +1200
Chicago Cubs +1200
Boston Red Sox +1400
Field (any team not listed above) +1000
So if you think the Twins have better than a 10:1 chance, rush to get a bet in, because you also win if any more than 21 other MLB teams sign him, too.
