My guess would be H2 because they have simple spherical orbital shapes.

Why ?

Because a large molecule will have a high value of 'b' as it takes up more space.
A large molecule will also have more interaction between it and other molecules (Van der Waals forces increase with molecular size generally)
For example if u compare
CH4, C2H6, or C3H8..C3H8 will have large value of "b"
