Tips On Betting Angels Rangers - Rangers Try To Keep The Angels Submerged In A.L. West Race

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/10/2012 3:10:11 PM

The defending American League champion Texas Rangers are offering no reason to doubt them in the 2012 baseball season. The Rangers will try to smother the Angels this weekend.

Los Angeles Angels @ Texas Rangers – Series Overview

Game 1: Friday, May 11

If you are interested in betting on baseball this season, the upcoming three-game series between the Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers presents some intriguing choices, and the first game of the series is the crown jewel of the three contests waged between these two teams in Arlington, Texas.  The visiting Angels will go with C.J. Wilson, the former Texas Ranger who has a 2.61 ERA and did so much to lift the Rangers to back-to-back American League pennants in 2010 and 2011. The Rangers will send starter Yu Darvish to the mound. Darvish carries a 2.54 earned-run average into this game.

The major-league rookie, fresh from the Japanese leagues, has been everything Texas hoped he would be, validating the Rangers' expenditures to get him while also minimizing the impact of the loss of Wilson to a division rival through free agency. Which man will be the better pitcher on Friday night before what is likely to be an electric crowd in the Lone Star State? That's a very hard question to answer, given that Wilson and Darvish have both been extremely strong this season.

The deciding factor becomes the teams' respective batting orders. Texas has far more tough outs in its lineup, one through nine. The Angels, thanks to the impotence of slugger Albert Pujols, have simply not scored very many runs this season, a key reason why they're lagging behind the rest of the American League West. Texas is the better and more complete team.

Game 2: Saturday, May 12

The team that is a favorite for legions of sports betting experts is the Texas Rangers, but with that having been said, when you do your homework and assess your selection in this second game of the series, you have to pause a little bit at first. Los Angeles will send Jerome Williams to the hill with a 3.38 earned-run average, while Texas will go with Matt Harrison, who has a 5.11 ERA. These numbers would lead most bettors to go with the Angels, but Harrison has pitched in the American League Championship Series and the World Series, while Williams does not have the same level of big-game experience. This might only be the month of May, but it's a very important series, especially for the Angels. Can Williams endure the pressure of the moment and deliver his best stuff? The answer to that question is likely going to be "no." Take Texas, since the Rangers are likely to shell Williams and score several runs in this encounter.

Game 3: Sunday, May 13

The team that online betting sites are favoring for the American League title is the Texas Rangers, but in this final game of the series, the Angels might strike back. The Angels will go with Jered Weaver, he of the 1.60 ERA and a no-hitter earlier this season. Texas starter Neftali Feliz has been really good, carrying a 3.38 earned-run average into this game after being a closer last year. Weaver is the veteran arm who can shut down Texas' bats. The Angels will win one game this weekend, and it will be due to Weaver's excellence.
