Texas Rangers plus-130 vs. Los Angeles Angels: $300 to win $390
The Angels have started the season 8-3 and are being discussed as one of the best teams in baseball.
That means it’s time to start fading them. The Angels aren’t going to keep up their current pace.
They’ve still got some issues, namely their starting rotation.
Tonight, they start Tyler Skaggs, who has been a serviceable but not outstanding option throughout his career. He’s made two good starts so far this season, but that doesn’t immediately transition him into the type of pitcher that should be a decent-sized favorite on the road against a tough lineup.
The Rangers aren’t great, but they can score runs. They’re strong enough offensively to where plus-130 against an overachieving team is a price that can’t be passed on.
Current Standings: Keefer (31-25-1, $11,301), Granger (17-16, $10,859), Brewer (24-25-1, $6,930), Grimala (14-20, $5,665)
