Rob Carr/Getty ImagesAs pitchers and catchers are set to report to camp within the next week http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are among the free agents still unsigned this MLB offseason.A big reason why those prized free agents have yet to sign on the dotted line could be their asking price.The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported on Friday that both Harper and Machado are seeking $300 million deals, and both players (or perhaps their respective agents) are waiting for the other to sign to set the market.Rosenthal noted that clubs are also willing to wait for the market to play itself out. It's said Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf would rather other teams engage in a bidding war and then decide if his team will join in once the numbers become clearer.Both Harper and Machado have long been expected to challenge Giancarlo Stanton's record $325 million  somewhere in that seven-year, eight-year range for $220 million."ESPN'sBuster Olneyreported in January that the White Sox had offered Machado a seven-year, $175 million deal. Machado's agent, Dan Lozano Chris Young Jersey ,vehemently shotthat report down.Harper hit .249/.393/.496 with 34 home runs, 34 doubles and 100 RBI in 2018, ending his contract year on a high note by hitting.300 after the All-Star break.The 26-year-old has earned no shortage of accolades throughout his career:six All-Star selections, 2012 NL Rookie of the Year, 2015 NL MVP, 2015 NL Silver Slugger and 2018 Home Run Derby title.Meanwhile, Machado hit .297/.367/.538 with 37 home runs Cam Bedrosian Jersey , 35 doubles, three triples and 107 RBI in 162 games between theBaltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Dodgers last year. After establishing himself among the best defensive third basemen in baseball with a pair of Gold Gloves, he moved over to shortstop full-time last season.His questionable postseason antics and "Johnny Hustle" comments have seemingly hurt his value as teams are wary of signing him to a long-term deal.Despite their impressive resumes, neither has appeared close to signing at any point so far this offseason. But with spring training right around corner, the action could soon heat up.The White Sox, the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Diego Padres are among the teams to show interest in both stars, while the San Francisco Giants reportedly joined the Harper sweepstakes this past week.Perhaps the Phillies' acquisition of star catcher J.T. Realmuto on Thursday could lead them to be more aggressive in their self-proclaimed "stupid money" spending.Jon Paul Morosiof MLB.com cautioned http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , though, that the Realmuto trade does not mean a Harper or Machado signing is imminent. But as Morosi pointed out, Philadelphia made itself a more attractive destination by adding an All-Star to its roster this week. It's not surprising that the Cubs are being backed by the public against the Pirates tonight.Even though Chicago is getting the majority of the bets, the Pirates' odds have shortened by 20 cents.Betting Odds: Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh PiratesCubs (Jon Lester): -104Pirates (Jameson Tallion): -106Over/under: 7.5First pitch: 7:05 p.m. ET>> Download The Action Network App to get real-time MLB odds, track your bets and follow all of our experts’ picks.There’s a lot to unpack here so bear with me.Let’s start with the obvious. The Cubs have a better record than the Pirates, and this line is essentially a pick’em. Right off the bat, that should indicate that oddsmakers are attempting to take advantage of public perception.On a similar note Blake Parker Jersey , the Cubs made the playoffs last season; the Pirates didn’t. Public bettors have that ingrained in their minds, and oddsmakers know it. They’re going to shade lines to account for it.Orioles-Yankees Betting Preview: 3 Reasons to Bet an Unpopular UnderdogRead nowThe Pirates are also the home side in this one. That’s the type of factor that the public tends to consider only when it benefits them — at least in baseball — which means they’re completely overlooking any edge the Pirates might have from playing in Pittsburgh tonight.As for the betting market, the Pirates are getting fewer than 40% of bets, and have seen considerable line movement in their direction going from +114 to -106 at Pinnacle. That’s especially noteworthy considering the range in which this moneyline stands. It’s a 20-cent line move, but it corresponds to a win probability change of 5% (that’s a lot).And finally, this game is on pace to be the most heavily bet game tonight, so you can be sure that oddsmakers care about this outcome. They’re well-aware that the public will love the Cubs in this case and they’re happy about that.Why? Well http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , putting the above filters together creates a system that’s gone 42-14 since 2005, winning 26.4 units for  return on investment.The pick: Pirates (-106)
