MLB Betting Preview - Rangers at Angels

July 06, 2009
MLB Betting Preview and Pick - Texas Rangers at LA Angels 10:05 ET

By Bob Harvey

It's the marquee matchup on Monday night as the co-leaders in the AL West square off in Anaheim.

Kevin Millwood of the RangersThe Rangers coming off a sweep of the Devil Rays send Kevin Millwood to the mound in the series opener.

The Angels will counter with Jerod Weaver. Tonight's two starters have at least two things in common. Both are having outstanding seasons and both were left off the all-start team.

Millwood, the ace of the Texas staff, is 8-5 with a 2.80 ERA. Weaver, who has developed into one of the top pitchers in the league, is 8-3 with a 3.10.

I'm guessing that both pitchers will be out to prove the all-star snub was one big flub by Terry Francona.
 
However, Weaver has struggled in his last three starts going 1-2 with a WHIP of 1.80 and an ERA of 8.10.

The OVER has cashed in each of his last three starts. Millwood over the same stretch is 2-1 with a 3.72 ERA and is 2-1 to the high side.

Tthe Angels have suddenly become an OVER machines. The Halo's are 6-3-1 to the high side in their last ten games and lead the Majors with a .280 batting average.

They're also among the leaders with a 5.21 runs per game average. For the year they've topped the number to the tune of 23-16 at home and 42-34-1 overall.

The Angels bullpen has also been on over players best friend this year. The team's 4.68 ERA is the fifth-worst in the league as the Halos have yielded at least six runs five times in the past 10 games.

With Texas in town and the Yankeees coming up, this OVER trend should continue. Nine runs or better seems very doable tonight even with Millwood and Weaver duking it out.

Free Pick: Over 8.5 available at Bookmaker.com.
