According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Angels are favored on the road today, as they are getting odds of -135 to win. The Rangers are listed with a money line of +125 to prevail. The over/under total is currently listed at 9 runs.
The pitching matchup for tonight’s game has Tyler Skaggs on the mound for the Angels to face Martin Perez of the Rangers. Skaggs is 1-0 through two starts. He has pitched 11 innings and allowed just two runs on eight hits with 10 strikeouts and two walks. Skaggs got a win in his first start, allowing three runs over 5.1 innings against the Athletics. He had just one strikeout with no walks and 10 hits.
PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION
The public is backing the Angels today. Los Angeles is getting 63 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite on the road against Texas.
The Angels still have Ian Kinsler on the injury report for today’s game. He is coming off the 10-day DL due to a groin injury but is questionable to return tonight. Texas second baseman Rougned Odor is questionable today after leaving last night’s game with a strained hamstring.
The Angels won the first game in this series on Monday night with an 8-3 victory. Los Angeles never trailed as it got a run in the first and never looked back. Garrett Richards didn’t get the win as he only pitched 4.1 innings and allowed one run on four hits with five walks and six strikeouts. Doug Fister took the loss for Texas as he allowed three runs over five innings on six hits.
Martin Maldonado led Los Angeles at the plate with a pair of hits and two RBI while Albert Pujols had a solo home run. Joey Gallo drove in two runs to lead Texas at the plate while Elvis Andrus hit his second home run of the season.
Skaggs has looked good on the mound and he faces a lackluster Texas lineup that is putting up just 3.4 runs per game. The Angels are hitting much better, averaging 6.18 runs per game. I expect them to keep mashing tonight against Perez and pick up another win.
