Preview

The Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers will play the 2nd game of the series at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Wednesday night. The Angels took the win in the first of the series.  Noah Syndergaard allowed one run over eight strong innings of four-hit ball in his longest appearance since returning from elbow surgery, and Jared Walsh homered in the Los Angeles Angels' 5-3 victory.

Texas Rangers

The Rangers get here with a 18-23 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4 runs per game and allowing 4.25 runs. Corey Seager is batting for .239 AVG and has 8 home runs. Adolis Garcia leads with 26 RBI and 6 home runs.

Martin Perez leads the pitching staff with a 1.64 ERA, 38 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Rangers.

Probable Pitcher:  Glenn Otto (1-2, 5.55 ERA)

Otto will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Rangers. Otto allowed two earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two across six innings to take the loss Thursday against the Astros. In his last 2 starts against the Angels he allowed 7 runs in 6.2 innings.

Los Angeles Angels

The Angels have won 3 games in a row and are 27-17 so far this season. They are currently the #5 offense in the MLB averaging 4.82 runs per game while allowing 3.63 runs. Mike Trout leads the team with a .328 avg, 12 home runs and 28 RBI. Ohtani has 9 Home runs and 28 RBI.

Michael Lorenzen leads the pitching staff with a 3.05 ERA, 29 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Angels.

Probable Pitcher:

Reid Detmers (2-1, 4.15 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in the 2nd game of the series. Detmers did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Rangers, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings. In his last 2 starts against the Rangers this season he has a 10.28 ERA across 7 innigs.

BETTING TRENDS

Texas are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Texas' last 9 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of LA Angels' last 10 games against Texas.

LA Angels are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games at home.

Prediction

The Angels offense continue to respond as they have scored 4.6 average in their last 3 games and they'll face Glen Otto who's holding a 5.55 ERA so expect many runs from the Angels again. Detmers has struggled against the Rangers this season so I think the best play here is the over.

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
