Amazon HQ2 Props: Which City Will Win the Bid?

A portion of the sign advertising Amazon Go is seen outside the grocery store's location on June 16, 2017 in Seattle, Washington. Amazon announced that it will buy Whole Foods Market, Inc. for over $13 billion dollars.

The race to host Amazon’s second headquarters has been narrowed down to 20 cities, and even the sports betting world is getting in on the action when it comes to deciding where the behemoth company will plant down roots next.

Online shop Bovada has released odds on which city will be chosen for Amazon HQ2, with Northern Virginia as the +240 favorite. Washington, D.C. (+350), Austin, Texas (+400), Boston, Massachusetts (+450), Toronto, Ontario (+500), Atlanta, Georgia (+900), Montgomery County, Maryland (+1200), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (+2000), Raleigh, North Carolina (+2500) and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (+3000) rounding out the top 10.

Where will Amazon go next?

Based out of Seattle, Washington, it was inevitable that Amazon would branch out. The company states it expects to invest over $5 billion in construction to include as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs to whichever area it heads next. From 2010 to 2016, Amazon estimates its investments in Seattle added an additional $38 billion to the city’s economy.

In 2017, more than 100,000 small businesses each made over $100,000 in sales on Amazon, with the website shipping two billion items to customers in 185 countries. It’s safe to say whichever place lands Amazon HQ2 will establish itself as a leading tech hub in North America.

In all, 238 cities and regions applied to bring the company to town, so making the cut is a big deal. Do you think you know where Amazon HQ2 is going? Head over to Bovada to get your wager in now.
