Tampa Bay Rays vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Rays +112 odds (July 15th 2017)

Tampa Bay is worth a look here as an underdog against the Angels on Saturday. The Rays will send out Alex Cobb, who is starting to look more and more like the top level starter he was in the past. Cobb posted a 2.45 ERA and sensational 0.591 WHIP over his final 3 starts leading up to the All-Star break. I fully expect him to keep it rolling and put together a great 2nd half. I’ll certainly take my chances with Cobb and the Rays against J.C. Ramirez of the Angels, who is 0-4 with a 5.21 ERA in 8 home starts and wasn’t throwing well going into the break with a 4.86 ERA in his final 3 starts. Give me the Rays +112!

Will Rogers betting the Texas Rangers -178 odds over the Los Angeles Angels on July 9th 2017

Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Pick: Texas -178 odds (July 9th 2017)

The set-up: The Rangers have beaten the Angels 10-0 and 5-2 the last two nights and now look to complete a three-game sweep of their AL West rivals on Sunday afternoon in Arlington. A Texas win would give the 43-44 Rangers a .500 record at the break, while the 44-47 Angels are just looking forward to Mike Trout’s return, expected after the break. While neither team has a realistic chance of catching the Astros in the AL West (Texas trails by 15 1/2 and LA by 16 1/2 games), as noted often, almost the entire AL remains in the wild card chase. Surely, Texas and LA qualify, as the Rangers are just two games back of the AL’s second wild card spot and LA only three back.

The pitching matchup: JC Ramirez (7-7 & 4.73 ERA) will start for the Angels and Yu Darvish (6-7 & 3.56 ERA) for the Rangers. Ramirez has done a decent job for the Angels in 2017, as LA is 9-7 in his starts. He is 2-1 with a 2.03 ERA against Texas including a win earlier this year in Arlington in which Ramirez set a career high with nine strikeouts in his lone starting assignment against the Rangers. Darvish looks to bounce back on Sunday, after one of the poorest starts of his career as he gave up 11 hits and seven runs in 4 1/3 innings against Boston last Tuesday. “There’s nothing you can do,” Darvish said. “You don’t want to think about it too much.” The Angels seem like a good bounce-back opponent for Darvish, who is 9-2 with a 3.45 ERA in 15 career starts against the Angels (Rangers are 12-3).

The pick: Darvish’s great career success against the Angels includes a 2-0 mark this season (1.38 ERA) and he’s facing a Los Angeles team that’s scored just two runs in the first two games of this series. Darvish won’t pitch in the All-Star Game at the request of the Rangers, who want him ready for the second half, as Texas has him scheduled for a July 16 start against Kansas City. First things first. Take the Rangers on Sunday.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Betting Pick: Texas -138 odds (July 7th 2017)

Los Angeles halted a three-game skid by salvaging the finale of a three-game series at Minnesota with a 2-1 win on Wednesday. The 44-45 Angels open a three-game weekend series in Texas against the Rangers tonight, 15 1/2 games back of the Astros in the AL West. Texas also snapped a three-game losing streak of its own, with an 8-2 win over Boston on Wednesday. The 41-44 Rangers are 16 1/2 games back of the Astros but both teams still own wild card hopes, with the Angels just 2 1/2 games out of the AL’s second wild card spot and the Rangers only 3 1/2 games out.

Ricky Nolasco (4-9, 4.42 ERA) finally put an end to a 10-start win-less drought (he was 0-7 and the Angels 0-10) with 6.1 scoreless innings at the Los Angeles Dodgers back on June 26. The Angels won 4-0, giving Nolasco his first victory since April 27. He followed that up by pitching a three-hit shutout against Seattle on July 1, as the Angels again won 4-0. Nolasco is 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in three career starts against the Rangers.

Cole Hamels (3-0, 4.12 ERA) was hit hard in his first start since his lengthy stint on the disabled list. He was staked to a seven-run lead back on June 26 vs the Indians but he would up allowing seven runs on eight hits over just 4.1 innings of a game Cleveland would win, 15-9. However, the veteran lefty was much better at Chicago against the White Sox on July 1, allowing two runs on just two hits over 6.2 innings without a walk in a 10-4 Texas win. He’s made six career starts against LA, going 21-1 with a 2.93 ERA (teams are 3-3).

After his three-hit shutout against Seattle, Nolasco said,”It usually takes at least 50 innings for me as a starter. Now it’s just that time to keep it going all the way to October.” One wonders if Nolasco is aware that he’ll enter this game with a 112-112 career record on 314 appearances, while posting a 4.52 ERA. Take the Rangers.
