Vegas likes the Cliff Lee signing
Maybe those of you who had your hearts and wallets broken by Jacoby Jones two-point conversion catch that sent last night's game to overtime (Texans were +3, ended up losing by six on an interception return for a touchdown), can roll your losses into a futures bet on the Phillies.
It won't pay as much as it would have before last night.
After news of the Cliff Lee deal broke, the Phillies became 7/2 favorites to win the 2011 World Series, according to the sports book at Bodog.com.
They opened the offseason at 6/1, trailing the Yankees, who were at 4/1.
