The Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Angels will meet in a pivotal series from Texas. All up to date odds can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Angels have fully recovered from their early season woes and are now chasing the Rangers down for the division lead and are on top of the AL Wild Card. They are coming off a shut out loss to the Rays yesterday in Zack Greinke’s first start with the club. Ervin Santana will take the ball on Monday looking to get back on the right track. He only has three quality starts in his last 10 appearances and has allowed an eye-popping 23 home runs so far this season.
The Rangers on the other hand are still benefitting from the hot start they had in the first part of the season. They have firmly been in front in the division for the entire season and seem to have it in cruise control. They have been playing .500 ball the last two weeks and have only been winning when their pitching has come up big during that stretch as Scott Feldman did on Sunday. Roy Oswalt will take the mound tonight and has been solid in his two outings thus far this season.
We actually like Texas in this game. This is more of a pick against Santana right now more than anything at online sportsbooks.
