The Blue Jays have emerged as one of the betting favorites to land free agent Shohei Ohtani this offseason.

Oddsmakers at theScore Bet are now pricing the Blue Jays at +400 to sign baseball's unicorn - behind only the Dodgers - following reports that Toronto is in the mix for Ohtani.

Odds via theScore Bet. Teams priced above +4000 aren't listed.

The Blue Jays were initially priced at +3500 to land Ohtani, but consistent rumblings about their interest have drastically shortened their odds.

Like Toronto, the Cubs' odds have also plummeted. They opened at +5000 but are now +500 and considered serious contenders.

Both the Yankees and the Mets opened at +700, but the betting market wasn't buying Ohtani to New York. As a result, both teams' odds have drifted.

The Dodgers have remained the favorite since this market opened.
