Rangers vs Angels Odds - Rangers too banged up to hang with Halos

<MLB picksThe Rangers vs Angels odds may be the Rangers’ last chance to make a play for the AL West title, and the timing couldn’t be worse for them. They’ll have to battle the powerhouse Angels without Ian Kinsler – and probably Nelson Cruz – swinging their big sticks. Do they stand a betting chance in California?

Rangers vs Angels odds: Angel starters will mow through injury-weakened Texas lineup on weekend

  • Joe Saunders will hand Texas a gift win on Friday
  • Jered Weaver is a beast at home
  • Lackey will overcome poor track record against the Rangers

Friday, August 7, 10:05 p.m. ET
Scott Feldman (10-4, 3.91) vs Joe Saunders (9-6 ,5.07)

Two of baseball’s most overrated pitchers go head to head to start the Rangers vs Angels odds. The splits could favor Feldman. His control is evading him, as he’s walked 12 guys in his last six starts, but the Angels aren’t the most patient team out there. Feldman is 6-1 on the road this season and he has a 2.25 ERA over two starts against L.A. this season.

Is it wrong to call Joe Saunders “garbage” in a baseball betting context? He’s a walk machine, he’s a gopher ball machine, and he has a 15.00 ERA against Texas this season. Even a depleted Rangers lineup has enough pop to hurt Saunders.

MLB betting pick: Rangers

Saturday, August 8, 4:10 p.m. ET
Kevin Millwood (9-7, 3.39) vs Jered Weaver (11-3, 3.79)

Finally, Kevin Millwood returns after several delays because of a strained glute. Needless to say, you shouldn’t trust his Rangers vs Angels odds on Saturday. Reason #1: he’s 2-6 on the road this season. Reason #2: the Angels have rocked him for a 7.79 ERA this season. Reason #3: Jered Weaver is 7-1 with a 2.79 ERA at Angel Stadium this season. Every sign points to an Angels win and you shouldn’t overthink these sports betting odds.

MLB betting pick: Angels

Sunday, August 9, time TBA
Derek Holland (4-7, 5.60) vs John Lackey (7-4, 3.96)

Top pitching prospect Derek Holland has a bright future, and he flashed that with a 10-strikeout performance against the Mariners on July 30. But blowing through the popgun Mariners attack is a different beast than battling the sizzling, aggressive Angel lineup.

Even though the Rangers have really beaten up John Lackey this season, I like his Rangers vs Angels odds. He’s 5-1 since the start of July with an opponents’ average below the Mendoza line. He’s hot enough to overcome any early –season struggles. Bet on the Angels but consider going over the total, as Josh Hamilton (.438), Michael Young (.380) and Hank Blalock (.344) all have Lackey’s number in a big way historically.

MLB betting pick: Angels
