The New York Mets are the frontrunners to land a pair of marquee players ahead of Friday's trade deadline.

If Washington Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer or Chicago Cubs INF/OF Kris Bryant are dealt by Friday, the Mets have been installed as the 300 favorite to acquire Scherzer and the 200 favorite to land Bryant, by SportsBetting.ag.

The Mets entered Tuesday with a 53-45 record and a 3.5-game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League East and a 5.0-game lead over the Atlanta Braves. They owned the fifth-best record in the National League.

The Mets were also among the favorites to trade for Cubs closer Craig Kimbrel (375) and Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story (600).

The Oakland A's (325) and New York Yankees (350) are the current favorites to land Kimbrel, with the Yankees (200) also leading the odds to acquire Story, ahead of the Braves (300).
