Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers MLB Betting Odds & Picks (05-17-2024)

So far, the defending World Series champion Texas Rangers have not been great. On the other hand, they have not been bad. Texas is in a tight baseball betting odds race with the Seattle Mariners for the American League West Division lead. However, the Rangers are struggling to stay in the black. Texas has become a public betting favorite after winning the first World Series in franchise history. Certainly, Texas will be a big chalk against the injury-ravaged Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. The Angeles are without their best player, Mike Trout, for an indefinite period.
