We’re heading out of swimsuit season in Michigan, but why not keep the magic of summer alive and think about swimwear for 2024? If you’re a fan of Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff, then you know that his fiancée, Christen Harper, is a three-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Now, she’s favorite in a new poll about the 2024 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Detroit Lions QB Jared Goff’s Fiancée Christen Harper Favored in New Poll

Harper is the odds-on favorite to score the coveted cover next year with 5/2 odds, according to official oddsmakers at online sportsbook, “Harper has carved her path to success in the modeling world, achieving the prestigious co-swim search winner title in 2021 and was named co-rookie of the year in 2022, alongside her close friend Katie Austin (who is being placed second with 3/1 odds to earn the cover next year),” the outlet states. Also, Harper is No. 1 right now, but she’s followed closely behind by Katie Austin (3/1) and Hunter McGrady (7/2) aren’t far behind.

If you’re wondering if people really bet on who will be the next SI cover model, the answer is yes. It’s apparently a big trend to bet on this sort of thing. “Betting on entertainment and current events has never been stronger,” Tim Williams, director of public affairs for BetUS, said in a statement. “This novelty bet is particularly interesting, as customers even have the chance to tie up bets on both Harper and her fiancé, Lions quarterback Jared Goff, into a parlay bet!”

Harper has been to many Detroit Lions games to cheer Goff on. She really seems to be getting into the Lions spirit, as she’s often spotted donning Lions gear. I think it’s adorable how she’s supported Goff during his transition from the Los Angeles Rams to the Detroit Lions. Let’s hope for another winning season for the Lions.
