Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Betting Pick

A pair of American League West teams will meet up on Friday for the first of a three game weekend series. The Los Angeles Angels are at the Texas Rangers. The Angels and Rangers are both members of the American League West, and appear to be heading in opposite directions this season.

The Angels are 16-28, and last place in the American League West. Los Angeles did pick up a win on Wednesday over the Cardinals to salvage one game in the series. The Angels though have dropped 6 out of their last 10 games.

For the Texas Rangers, they are 23-22 on the season. That is second place in the American League West. The Rangers trail Seattle for the top spot in the division. Texas is also coming off a win; 4-0 over Cleveland on Wednesday.

The Texas Rangers are -175 in this game over the Angels. The total is 9.

Last Place Angels

The Los Angeles Angels are slated to throw Tyler Anderson in this game. Anderson comes into the game with a 3-4 mark on the season, and a 2.92 earned run average. Anderson has thrown 49.1 innings and allowed 16 earned runs. He has struck out 36 batters, and walked 19. His last start was on May 11th against Kansas City.

In the win on Wednesday, the Angels hit three homeruns, including Nolan Schanuel in the first inning. Zach Neto and Taylor Ward also went deep in the game. The win snapped a three game losing streak for the Angels. During the losing streak, the Angels allowed 7 runs per game.

Following this series, the Angels will head to Houston to take on the Astros, and then take Thursday off before hosting the Cleveland Guardians over the weekend.

Heaney Seeking First Win

For the Texas Rangers, they are trotting out Andrew Heaney. The lefthander has yet to win a game this season. Heaney is 0-4 with a 4.39 earned run average. He has gone 41 innings, and struck out 39 batters in 2024.

Heaney will look to replicate the start that Jon Gray gave the Rangers on Wednesday. He went 6.1 innings, and allowed just 4 hits without a win. The offense for Texas  was anchored by Marcus Semien and Adolis Garcia homeruns. Garcia leads the team with 10 homeruns on the season.

The Rangers will take Monday off, and then play on the road at the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday. That starts  a six game road trip that ends with the Minnesota Twins next weekend. 

Rangers Pick up Win

Andrew Heaney is set to pick up his first win of the season. Despite scoring 7 on Wednesday, the Angels offense still is not very good. The Rangers hit and they get good pitching, and win this game.

When we go to bet this game, take the Texas Rangers -175 over the Los Angeles Angels. Enjoy the game and best of luck with all your Major League Baseball betting!
