MLB Free Betting Pick Rangers VS Angels

4/12 MLB Free Betting Pick Rangers VS Angels

Texas Rangers +130   LA Angels -140   O/U 8.5

The Texas Rangers and the LA Angels play the middle game of their 3 game series on Wednesday night. With the Cleveland Indians dramatic World Series with the Cubs few people remember it was the Texas Rangers that won the most games in the American league last season winning 95 games. Texas started the season against those Indians and were swept in 3 games. They started this season 2-4. The total is 3-3 in their 6 games. The Angels on the other hand have been going downhill the last couple years and manager Mike Scioscia needs an improvement this season with the kind of payroll the Angels have. His team is off to a good starting 5-2 after a sweep of the Mariners. The total is 3-4 in their 7 games.

For this RideTheHotHand.com free pick we are going after the total. The Angels are going with former Dodger Jesse Chavez who switched teams in the offseason for a chance to be a starter again.  He got off to a good start vs Seattle getting the win allowing only 1 hit. We don’t trust Chavez as a starter as the Dodgers gave him every opportunity to be a starter before giving up on him. Seattle isn’t nearly the offensive team Texas has so don’t expect Chavez to repeat that game 1 performance. Pitching for the Rangers is AJ Griffin who is a serviceable pitcher who you can expect only 5 innings out of. After an ERA over 5 last season Griffin was back at it in his first start vs Oakland, giving up 4 runs in 3 innings in a 10-5 win. Bottom line is these 2 pitchers aren’t very good and these lineups are very good. Take the OVER. THE PICK: OVER 8.5
