Betting On Angels Rays – Angels Look To Get On Track With Trip To Tampa Bay

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/23/2012 2:57:44 PM

After loading up on big-name free agents like Albert Pujols and CJ Wilson in the offseason, it seemed like an obvious conclusion that a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim team that was already competitive a year ago would be able to take that next step and contend for a division title. So far this sportsbook season though things haven’t gone as planned on the west coast, as the Angels won just six of their first 16 games to fall to the bottom of the American League West. The Tampa Bay Rays’ incredible run was one of the biggest stories in baseball a year ago, and after a strong start to this season it appears as though Evan Longoria and company are set to compete for an AL playoff spot once again. The Rays host the Angels in a three-game set that begins on Tuesday, and while it is still early in the season, Los Angeles has to be anxious about turning things around before they fall too far back.

While the focus on the Angels heading in to this season was the big names they had signed, one of their biggest strengths was actually expected to be the solid starting rotation that was already in place, with Jared Weaver, Dan Haren, and Ervin Santana joined by Wilson. However, the LA pitching staff hasn’t lived up to expectations so far, with Santana experiencing the roughest start. The 29-year old is 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA through three starts, and to make matters worse, he will be going up against David Price for the Rays in the series opener. Price has allowed more than three earned runs in any of his three starts, even though he hasn’t brought his best stuff so far this betting year.

Wilson has lived up to expectations so far with just five earned runs allowed through three starts so far, and he will need to bring his best stuff against Tampa Bay starter Jeremy Hellickson in order for the Angels to even up this series. Hellickson is 2-0 already, but was tagged for five earned runs in just five innings in a 13-5 loss to the Boston Red Sox in which he escaped with the no decision.

This series will wrap up with a sports betting matinee game on Thursday, with a couple of struggling starters getting the call. Tampa Bay has lost all three games that Matt Moore has pitched, even though he gave up more than three runs just once so far this season. Meanwhile, Jerome Williams gets the call for Los Angeles after earning his first win in a strong performance that saw him go 6.2 with only seven hits and three earned runs allowed after he lasted only 2.2 innings in an 11-5 loss to the New York Yankees in his season debut.
