The Texas Rangers in the Los Angeles Angels will close out game for other series tonight from Arlington. All odds for this game can be found updated at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Rangers lost their first two games of the series, but bounced back with a win yesterday and can finish the series with a split if they win tonight. Their offense broke out and scored 11 runs on 17 hits yesterday and Yu Darvish was average on the mound at best. Ryan Dempster will make his first start as a member of the Rangers today since being acquired from the Cubs. Dempster has never pitched in the American League and will get quite the welcome in facing the Angels this afternoon.
The Angels dropped the game yesterday and now sit four games back in the standings. Albert Pujols blasted two more home runs, and the Angels scored 10 runs on 10 hits overall. Their pitching staff struggled big-time yesterday though, and they will look to CJ Wilson who has lost his three last three decisions as he takes the mound tonight versus his former team. Wilson has allowed 106 hits in 137 innings of work this season good enough for 2.88 ERA.
Texas is 2-4 in their last six games overall, 66-32 in their last 97 games as a home favorite, and 2-5 in their last seven games against the AL West. Los Angeles is 3-8 in their last 11 road games against a right handed starter, 4-1 in their last five game four of a series, and 1-4 in Wilson’s last five starts. Los Angeles is 4-2 in their last six meetings with Texas.
We do not really like the odds here do not know why Texas is favorite, but we really can’t see them losing this series at home. So give us Texas as a moneyline favorite in this one at sportsbook betting.
