The LA Angels are in Texas Sunday afternoon to finish up their three game series with the Texas Rangers. The Angles won games 1 and 2 of the series with 5-4 wins in both games. The Angels have dominated the Rangers this season winning 10 out of the 12 meetings including the last 9 in a row.
Head to Head Trends
Angels are 9-0 in the last 11 meetings.
Angels are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Texas.
Texas Rangers (+131)
The Texas Rangers are 5th in the American League West 26 games back of both the Oakland Athletics and LA Angels. The Rangers are now in last place in the Majors with 47 wins and 76 losses for a .382 win percentage. The Rangers started out the season ok but they ran into some injury problems and they now currently have 13 players on the DL. The Rangers average 3.99 runs per game on offense and allow 5.10 runs per game on defense which is good for last in the American League. The Rangers are really bad right now they have only won 12 of their last 53 games and I don’t see things getting much better for the Rangers as they have a pretty brutal schedule the rest of the season with 27 of their last 39 games coming against the Royals, Mariners, Angels, and Athletics. Starting for the Rangers today is Nick Tepesch who is 4-7 with a 4.29 ERA in 14 starts this season.

Rangers are 12-41 in their last 53 overall.
Rangers are 16-35 in their last 51 home games.
LA Angels (-141)
The LA Angels are now tied for 1st place in the American League West with the Oakland Athletics. The Angels are 23 games over .500 on the season with 72 wins and just 49 losses. The Angels have a pretty good pitching staff allowing 4.00 runs per game but their main strength is offense averaging 4.73 runs per game which is good for the second best offense in baseball. On the hill for the Angels is Hector Santiago who is 3-7 with a 3.59 ERA in 16 starts and a handful of relief appearances.
LA Angels Trends
Angels are 35-17 in their last 52 overall.
Angels are 8-2 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series.
I like the LA Angels to complete the sweep and beat the Rangers again today. The Angels are now tied for the top spot in all of baseball while the Rangers are last in all of baseball so we literally have the best team against the worst team and at just -141 odds I think we have to pick the Angels again today in this one.
