2011 MLB Baseball Playoff Picks: Underdog Wins Game 1 in DCS

OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a sports betting pick on winner for Friday is on the Tampa Bay Rays (+170) to Texas.

Reasoning: I’m not really all that sure that the Rays are going to go into Arlington in this spot and beat a very good pitcher in CJ Wilson and a great offense in the Rangers but at this price I’ll give it a small go. Tampa could be really high after the euphoric Wednesday and play at a high level or they could be fatigued and wet the bed a bit in an emotional letdown. In a normal even proposition then there isn’t much of a value here but at this take back there is and that is all that counts.

Jeff Niemann can be great when he has things cooking. The tall righty will have to be on his game to match Wilson as Joe Maddon’s club isn’t the most rested team but they do have that momentum thing in their corner and in this nothing to lose type spot this price is enough for me. Note: Rivers stays with action through pitching changes.

Texas may get back to the Series as they are that great with the sticks. Guys like Hamilton, Young, Kinsler, Cruz and Beltre have been great and are great. They form one of the most potent lineups around and the Rays cannot match the Rangers in terms of sheer power and overall talent. But Maddon continues to amaze getting the most out of his guys and in the end this game is winnable as Evan Longoria and the boys are far from a fluke.

Top expert pick on this game: Tampa

For more information: 300,000* Pittsburgh won going away as I cashed a third straight 300,000* in a third straight winning day! If you want that Utah State-BYU winner then go elsewhere because I truly have no clue what is going to happen there. We could see the Aggies win the game or get drilled by 30 and I wouldn’t be surprised in the least.

One play for me today and it comes on the diamond in the form of my second highest rated play, a 400,000*, involving two of the best pitchers in the game in Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia. Just another 400,000* winner as I bring home the bacon from the Bronx between the Tigers and Yankees. You need it, I got it! Click now to purchase Matt Rivers picks.
