I’ve been in a similar spot before. I told the preferred job (Job A) that I had just received an offer from on Job B. I explained that I’d much prefer to work at Job A but promised Job B an answer by a certain date. Job A was grateful for the info, got moving quickly and made me an offer that day.

...to HR today? But make it casual like “I’ve been given a verbal and am waiting for an official offer before considering.” Or will that be offputting? Or worse- they’ll go with the other candidate because they know I’ll try to negotiate whatever offer Company A gives me?

I second what A1 said. Let the preferred choice know the situation and how much you’d prefer to work there but that you also have to respond to the offer. In my experience, they’ll let you know where they stand.

I did this recently but had no Offer B.... it was to make them pull the trigger on me since it was just down to me and one other candidate. I did not get picked
