Both of these pitchers come into this matchup with slightly elevated ERA’s, but Detmers’ WHIP is much better than Otto’s. Otto comes into this game and has allowed 10 runs in his last 10 innings of work, while Detmers has allowed 3 runs in his last 12.2 innings pitched. The Angels have been very good this year and have a very solid lineup, while the Rangers offense has scored about 60 runs less than LA’s. I like the Angels in this matchup due to their offense advantage and think they should be able to score at least 5-6 runs here. I am taking the Angels to win by 2.
