It is the first of a three-game betting on baseball series between the top two teams in the division. It is also a rematch of last week when the Rangers hosted the Angels.
Baseball betting trends give the Rangers a chance in this game. They have actually split the last 10 games at Los Angeles. This season the Rangers have stayed in the race thanks to an improved pitching staff and strong offense. The Angels struggled early in the season in baseball betting but they are healthy now and a force again in the American League.
Last season this baseball betting series was tough to predict. It was a streaky online sports betting series as the Rangers won three straight in Los Angeles at one time or another while the Angels also won three straight at home.
Texas has been in the Top 10 in runs scored for much of the season as baseball betting statistics show, but they have missed Josh Hamilton recently as he was hurt. He is expected back in the lineup and his presence is a huge plus to the Rangers in sports betting. The pitching for Texas is actually not at the bottom of the league as betting on baseball numbers tell us. The Rangers are still weak in runs allowed but at least this season there is reason for optimism as they have moved out of the bottom third in the league as baseball betting numbers show.
The Angels have been even stronger than the Rangers in terms of runs scored as baseball betting number show. That offense has helped the Angels stay right near the top of the division in baseball betting as the pitching staff has struggled. Now that everyone is healthy the pitching should improve and it is very possible the Angels could run away with the division again in baseball betting.
Looking at the baseball betting total we see that the over/under numbers are split at 5-5 in the last ten meetings in Los Angeles. With both teams in the top 10 in offensive numbers as betting on baseball numbers indicate, a high scoring game is possible although it could be a Kevin Millwood-Jered Weaver matchup on Monday which might keep scoring down.
