Freddie Freeman helped lead the Atlanta Braves to a World Series victory, but he now's set to become one of the most highly sought after free agents this MLB offseason.

Will he end up back in Atlanta, or will he find a new team to play for?

Let's dive into this topic a little bit further. WynnBET doesn't currently have odds up for where Freeman will end up, so I decided to set the odds myself.

Here are the most likely free agency destinations for the 32-year old first baseman.

Freddie Freeman Free Agency Odds

Atlanta Braves +120

It seems like the most obvious result will be for Freeman to stay right where he is, in Atlanta. The Braves offered Freeman a qualifying offer of a one-year, $18.4 million contract, but we all know that's formality more than a serious offer. This now means that if someone else were to sign Freeman during free agency, the Braves will be rewarded with a draft pick for compensation.

Freeman made it clear that he wants to stay in Atlanta, and the Braves have the money to keep him there if they want to. He's played in Atlanta for his entire MLB career, and it's hard to imagine him anywhere else.

Boston Red Sox +250

The Boston Red Sox would make almost too much sense. Not only have they established themselves as a club that loves to spend money on players, but they have a glaring need at first base. Bobby Dalbec is not the answer, despite getting hot offensively down the stretch.

If Boston's front office decides they want to spend money on an offensive player and try to find bargain's for their pitching staff, there's no doubt that Freeman will top their last of targets.

New York Yankees +290

Any time there is a big name free agent, the Yankees will be atop the list of teams that will be pursuing them. The Yankees love trying to throw money at players to fix their problems, and with Anthony Rizzo set to enter free agency, a left-handed first baseman like Freeman makes all the sense in the world.

The only downside to the Yankees signing freeman is that their payroll is projected to be north of the $220 million limit, but when has that stopped them in the past?

Toronto Blue Jays +450

Freddie Freeman may have been born in the United States, but the first baseman has duel citizenship due to both of his parents being Canadian. He has also chosen to represent Canada in international competition in years past, so signing with MLB's Canadian team would make sense to a degree.

The Blue Jays have the money to spend, especially if they're unable to re-sign Marcus Semien. The only issue would be the fact that their MVP candidate, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., is currently their first baseman. Guerrero Jr. is an offensive powerhouse, but his defensive skills leave a lot to be desired so a move to DH would likely be the move if the Jays sign Freeman.

New York Mets +600

It's no secret that the New York Mets need offense. They ranked 27th in the Majors last season in runs per game, averaging only 3.93. Owner Steve Cohen has the money to spend, and Freeman would solve a lot of their issues.

They currently have Pete Alonso at first base, but if the National League turns decides to finally make the permanent shift to the designated hitter, that opens up a big role for Freeman with the Mets.

Los Angeles Angels +1000

Freddie Freeman is a California native and grew up as a Los Angeles Angels fan. He has the chance this offseason to join the Halos if they decide to extend him an offer. They have the money to spend, and adding Freeman to a team that already boasts Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani could mean they may finally find themselves back in the postseason.
