Philadelphia Phillies Odds of Winning 2011 World Series

There is still great value in betting the Phillies to win the 2011 World Series as Philadelphia still pays 2 to 1 odds at SBG Global

Lock them in now as those odds might be slashed further. 

“These Phillies are just getting started,” suggests Jayson Stark of ESPN.com

The manager of the Phillies (Charlie Manuel) said he thinks the Phillies can be better in the second half of the season than they were in the first half.

It isn't really what they've done that's the story here. It's how they've done it. They were built to win, all right -- just not like this. They weren't built to survive putting three closers and two starting pitchers on the disabled list. They weren't built to lose Chase Utley for 50 games, or to run their projected everyday lineup out there for precisely five games in the entire first half.

And they definitely weren't built to find themselves dueling the Red Sox on ESPN, hoping Vance Worley could get the ball to two guys named Stutes and Bastardo.

But this is what makes sports the most fabulous reality show ever invented. If you want to be great, you have to be able to throw away the blueprints and make it up as you go along. And that's what this Phillies team, more than any other Charlie Manuel has managed, has done best.

The Phillies odds of winning the 2011 World Seriesare the same as the Boston Red Sox at 2/1 also.
