Oddsshark.com and Bovada have released their odds on which city will win the bid for Amazon HQ2. The winning city/area will get about 50,000 high paying jobs. The article states that “Amazon estimates its investments in Seattle added an additional $38 billion to the city’s economy.”
According to the Vegas odds, Northern Virginia comes in first at +240. Washington D.C. comes in second at +350, and Austin is third at +400.
MoCo comes in seventh out of the twenty areas, at +1200.
238 areas initially applied to bring HQ2 to around, so making it to the final 20 is a big deal. There have been talks about Amazon possibly choosing NoVa, D.C., and MoCo as one area for HQ2, but it’s more likely that one area gets chosen.
Amazon is expected to select the location for HQ2 in the coming months.
