PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Ryan Vogelsong (2-0, 1.42 ERA) vs. Tigers RH Anibal Sanchez (1-1, 1.35)
Vogelsong has proven himself that he is a big game pitcher after outings against Reds, and the two games against Cardinals.
Both the Reds and Cardinals are one of the best teams in the Majors.
Sanchez's numbers in the postseason are inflated thanks to the horrendous Yankees lineup. Sanchez is terrible at home with 5-7 record with ERA of 4.52 and a WHIP of 1.32, those are Chien-Ming Wang-worthy numbers.
the opponents he has beaten this year in the AL: Indians, Royals, Jays, ( Yankees in postseason). Vogelsong has yet to trail after 5 innings or even the whole game in this year's postseason. Giants hitters are much better than the Tigers and i expect Vogelsong to do it once again on the road.
Vogelsong -105 1st 5 inn +0.5
Vogelsong +140 is the pick.

Nuggets +2.0 @ Blazers The Blazers have yet to play in front of their home crowd, nevertheless, their rival Nuggets will come in with set offense and defense whereas the Blazers are still trying to gel as a team. Blazers lack depth and will not be able to match up with the quickness Nuggets possess.

Yankees @ Tigers +105
Going with Scherzer here, he's been unstoppable this year with 8-2 record after all-star game and 7-3 at home this year excluding the gem he threw at oakland. The yankees lost Jeter which is a big minus that could be costly late in the game and the yankees are in the biggest slump of the year offensively. even with A-rod back in the lineup, hes not going to be useful as he is 0-9 against scherzer in his career. Tigers are determined to sweep the Yankees off the board as Leyland will do whatever it takes to win this game.

NBA Preseason Picks: Bucks +3.0 @ Bulls
Bucks has more offense, and hungrier team in the preseason as Tom Thibodeau is still trying to adjust what works for the bulls team without Rose, meanwhile this is an perfect opportunity to cash in against the bulls.

NBA Preseason Picks:Rockiets +6.0 Coming off a loss at home against one of the smartest teams in spurs in the league, the Rockets are off to their neighborhood to face the Mavericks. two of the Mavs starters are in big problems right now, Dirk has serious knee issues and Mayo has laceration on his shooting hand, not to mention the new and terribly-formed Mavs bench, all point to a covering-spread by the Rockets as they are young and more hungry in the pre-season.

Should be Heat -8.0 or -8.5
By adding Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, the Heat's big 3 can play a loosen style of basketball thanks to their great ability to knock down 3's. However, they are a liability on the defensive end and it will take a while for Allen and Lewis to adjust to the Heat's style of play. Meanwhile, The Celtics also got a new player in Jason Terry, who, along with Courtney Lee and Jeff Green will come off the bench, i believe this trio can score and defend and they are highly-underrated. Heat went 2-3 against the spread at home and 3-2 SU after April 1st last season. Losing Allen will hurt a bit, but the Celtics are a veteran team that will adjust their style of play. Having said that, i believe LeBron will try to be unselfish and want to distribute the ball to everyone, especially allen, on purpose and indirectly affect the team as a whole. I see a close game on opening night.
Early Lean: Boston Celtics +8
