A Phillies and Yankees rematch was the call of Las Vegas oddsmakers at the start of the season. Since then, the Phils have taken over as favorites. Swayed by the power of the Big Three, oddsmakers for Bodog.com have the Phillies as 5/2 favorites to bring home the bacon, with the Yanks running runner-up at a 3/1, just ahead of the Rays. Beerleaguer: I’ve never made a baseball wager in my life (I’m not even comfortable using the lingo), but I’m tempted to lay money down on another parade. Nothing scientific: the Phillies have gotten better, the Yankees have gotten worse and teams like the Rays, Twins and Rangers can't match up with the Phillies' experience. In a seven-game series, I’ll take the Fightins over anyone.
