MLB betting on Wednesday includes a battle at the top of the American League West as the Texas Rangers host the Los Angeles Angels.
It is the final game of a three-game series between the two teams and the last game of a six-game road trip for the Angels. This should be a good matchup that will attract equal action from gamblers making a MLB bet.
MLB betting trends point a little bit to the Angels in this game. Before this MLB betting series began the Angels had won 11 of the last 20 between the two teams and they had split the last 10 at Texas. Earlier this season the Rangers swept the Angels in Arlington, winning 3-0, 5-3 and 10-8 as MLB betting results show. The Angels are playing much better than they did back in May so that result seems unlikely this time around.
There is not much to look at with the MLB betting total in this game. There was a very slight lean to the under in this MLB betting series before it began but nothing for online gamblers to get excited about.
The Angels have held their own on the road in MLB betting this season as they are right around the .500 mark. Unless you are the Yankees or Red Sox that is a profitable MLB bet number. The Angels have been hitting okay this season, ranking in the Top 10 as MLB betting stats show but their pitching has been shaky. That should change now that John Lackey is back in the rotation and other pitchers are also getting healthy. Making a MLB bet on the Angels when they are on the road is always worth considering.
The Rangers continue to stay right in the race in the American League West. They have been very good at home this season in MLB betting. They have similar MLB betting stats to Los Angeles. The Rangers can hit but struggle at times with their pitching as online betting numbers show. It is better than in years past though and that is why they are contending for the first time in a while.
