Preview

The Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Angels will play the 3rd game of the series at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Saturday night. The Rangers took the win 7-2 in the second game of the series.  Martin Perez worked seven strong innings, Adolis Garcia, Ezequiel Duran and Jonah Heim had RBI doubles.

Los Angeles Angels

The Angels get here with a 42-58 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 3.89 runs per game. They're batting for .230 AVG, 385 runs scored in 756 hits and 110 home runs, ranking #25 in offense in the league tied with the Miami Marlins. Mike Trout leads the team with a .294 avg, 24 home runs and 51 RBI. Ohtani has 21 Home runs and 59 RBI.

Defensively they are allowing 4.22 runs per game and rank #11 in the league. Shohei Ohtani leads the pitching staff with a 2.81 ERA, 145 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Chase Silseth (1-3, 5.84 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in the 3rd game of the series. The right-hander was sent down July 10 but will draw a start Saturday to give Reid Detmers and Noah Syndergaard additional rest. Over his last two major-league starts, Silseth has allowed seven runs on 11 hits and a walk while striking out eight in 8.1 innings.

Texas Rangers

The Rangers get here with a 45-54 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.58 runs per game and they're batting for .240 AVG, have 441 runs scored in 801 hits and 124 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the Toronto Blue Jays. Adolis Garcia leads with 61 RBI and 18 home runs while Corey Seager has 23 homers and 54 RBI.

Defensively as they are allowing 4.45 runs per game and rank #21 in the league. Martin Perez gave up one run on three hits over seven innings against the Angels. He leads the pitching staff with a 2.59 ERA, 101 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded for the Rangers.

Probable Pitcher:

Glenn Otto (4-7, 5.37 ERA) will be on the mound for the Rangers in the 3rd game of the series. Otto allowed three runs on seven hits, one walk and a hit batter while striking out five over 5.1 innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Mariners. He has a 1-0 record with an ERA of 6.17 and 13 strikeouts in 3 appearances against the Angels in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Texas Rangers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against LA Angels.

Texas Rangers are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games against an opponent in the American League

LA Angels are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home.

LA Angels are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Texas.

Prediction

The Angels continue to struggle offensively as they have scored only 2 runs so far on this series. For this game they're sending Chase Silseth who has only 6 starts this season and the Angels have lost in 5 of them. Glen Otto will take the mound for the Rangers who has struggled this season but dominated the Angels. The Rangers should get some runs early in the game against Silseth and I expect the Angels to score some runs as well so the best play is the over. 

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
