Angels sign Hamilton; futures odds on the move

Highly-coveted free-agent outfielder Josh Hamilton has signed a five-year, $125 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels, according to numerous reports.

Mike Perry, oddsmaker at, has moved the Angels from 10/1 to 7/1 to win the World Series and 5/1 to 4/1 to capture the AL pennant upon hearing news of the signing. The LVH SuperBook also had the Angels listed as 10/1 favorites to win the Fall Classic on Monday.

“We haven’t moved Texas yet, as we assume they may make a couple more moves themselves now that they have more money to use,” Perry told Covers.

Hamilton, 31, belted a career-high 43 home runs last season for the Rangers and is a five-time All-Star.

The Angels have been busy this offseason, previously acquiring pitchers Joe Blanton and Tommy Hanson.

Mike Perry? Isn't that the guy who was with Logans? Rest assured he doesn't set odds.
