Pacers vs. Heat Game 1 Picks and Preview to Odds; Angels-Rangers Prediction Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers was the winningest all-time handicapper on a large network of sites. He has the highest NCAA basketball and football winning percentage in history. Today though he wins in baseball on the Los Angeles Angels.

Reasoning: Neftali Feliz was a great closer and is a very good starter as evidenced by the ERA in the low 3’s. His Rangers also are probably the best team in the game right now and are being led by the beast of all beasts in Josh Hamilton. I understand how deep and great this Texas team is but Jered Weaver has become a superior and to get anything back with elite righty anywhere and against anybody is good enough to give a small go. 

Weaver threw that no-hitter a few starts back and really has been lights out for awhile now. Today is a challenge in Arlington and up against Ron Washington’s bashers will not be easy at all. But great pitching normally beats great hitting and especially in this post steroid deader ball era.

Anaheim has been somewhat of a disappointment but they are still a talented team with a guy in Albert Pujols who will bust out at some point in the near future. Add in the potential of Hunter, Morales, Kendrick and a few others and I am all right with Weaver plus some coin.

Rivers pick: Los Angeles Angels.

Now Bill Tanner has an NBA pick. Indiana Pacers at Miami Heat

Tanner’s Tip: The UNDER seems to be one of the most popular bets in the playoffs so far, and with good reason.  Defense has been the name of the game, with low-scoring matchups resulting in just about every series.  However, this series is a bit different.

The Heat will try to send a message to the Pacers in Game 1 that they can simply outscore them because they have superior players.  Miami certainly has more stars, but Indiana has more depth and can overwhelm the opposition over the course of a series.  The Pacers scored progressively more points in each of their five games against Orlando, averaging 99 per game in winning the last four.

They are confident offensively and can’t win a low-scoring game in this series.  That’s why they will try to set the pace and see if the Heat can keep up.  Miami topped the century mark in scoring in winning each of the first two meetings during the regular season, and I think that will be the case again on Sunday.  Look for both teams to combine for around 200 points.  Bet OVER 188
