When Vlad Guererro switched jerseys during the MLB gambling off-season it was probably the biggest single event in recent AL West history.
What made the move so impactful in the eyes of baseball gambling experts wasn’t the fact that he was leaving the LA Angels so much as the fact that he was going to the AL West rival Texas Rangers.
On July 1st the Dominican slugger will be back in his old stomping grounds when his new team, the Rangers, visit LA for a MLB gambling series. What makes matters worse for the Angels is that not only did they lose one of their top players but he’s having one of the best season in the MLB gambling action (.330, 60 RBI, 16 HR) for their division rival.
These are top two teams in the AL West and one, perhaps even both of these teams will be playing in the baseball gambling playoffs. For the first time in years the Rangers have not only established their position at the top of the AL West MLB gambling food chain but look to be in a position to sustain their success throughout the regular baseball gambling season.
The Rangers (46-30) lead the LA Angels (44-35) by 3.5 games in the division standings and have a chance to really put some distance between themselves and their rivals if they can win this MLB gambling series.
But the Angels can likewise close the MLB gambling gap in the standings and took the first game of this series in a tight 6-5 win at home. Guererro did his damage against his old team by singling in the 1st inning and then belting an HR and finishing the game with 3 RBI.
In this July 1st MLB gambling matchup the teams will both be sending out two of their best pitchers which should limit the run production.
CJ Wilson (6-3, 3.35 ERA) will take the mound for the Rangers in this MLB gambling matchup and the Angels will start ace Jered Weaver (7-3, 3.01 ERA). Wilson has been pitching well of late and hasn’t lost a game since the month of May.
However, Weaver is simply too good a pitcher a home to let this important division win slip away from him. Look for the Angels to win this game and close the gap with the Rangers in the baseball gambling standings.
