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.

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.
