MLB Betting Trends

Texas

The Rangers are 16-35 in their last 51 road games. Texas is 5-2 in the last seven Minor starts on four days of rest.

Los Angeles

The Angels are 1-9 in their last 10 games versus the AL West. Los Angeles is 8-2 in its last 10 home games versus the Rangers.

Prediction:

Texas is sending its best starting pitcher to the mound tonight in Minor, while Skaggs has struggled with consistency and pitching deep into games. Los Angeles might be due for a win and the Rangers could be due for a loss, but for at least one day I'm going to continue to play hot-cold and go with the team playing better baseball that has the better starting pitcher on the mound.
