The Texas Rangers will head out to Anaheim to begin a three-game set with the Los Angeles Angels this Friday from Angel Stadium.

Rangers Betting Preview

Texas moved to 18-12 after splitting games with Arizona. The Rangers couldn’t hold off the DBacks on Wednesday, and they’ll now take their high-powered offense to the city of Angels. The Texas offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .260, with a .339 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.49 ERA, with a 1.20 WHIP. Exequiel Duran has multiple hits in three of the last six games, and he now leads the Rangers in batting (.324). Adonis Garcia homered last night to push his team-leads to eight HR and 31 RBI.  

Dane Dunning (2-0, 1.77 ERA, 11 Ks) will begin the game for Texas. The fourth-year pitcher has found his niche out of the bullpen this season, pitching shutout ball through in his first six outing. Dunning earned his second win of the season after containing the Yankees in relief last week.

Angels Betting Preview 

Los Angeles moved to 18-14 after sweeping St. Louis.  The Angels started May on a positive note, completing the road sweep of the Cards, and they’ll look to bring the same pressure to the reigning World Series champs here. The LAA offense is scoring 5.63 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .331 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Mike Trout homered in the game two win over the Cardinals, and he leads LAA in runs (23), while batting .294. Shohei Ohtani struck out 13 batters in his start in St. Louis, and he leads LAA in hitting (.308). Trout and Ohtani have both tallied 19 RBI, while Hunter Renfroe holds the team-lead (21). 

Tyler Anderson (1-0, 5.74 ERA, 18 Ks) will make the road start for Los Angeles. The eighth-year lefty cleaned up a rough three-game stretch with his best outing of the season in Milwaukee last week. Anderson posted season-highs of 6.2 innings pitched and seven strikeouts, while allowing just one run to lead the Halos to a victory.  

Texas vs Anaheim Trends

Texas is 17-13 against the spread this season, with a 19-9-1 O/U record. Anaheim is 16-16 ATS this year, with a 15-15-1 over/under record.

Corey's Free Pick

Aces are taking the mound league wide tomorrow, except in Anaheim, where two potent lineups will face off this Friday. Dane Dunning has brought new life to his career with his role out of the bullpen, but it still hasn’t made me a lights out pitcher, and the Angels should be able to produce off of him. Tyler Anderson’s form did not transfer from Los Angeles to Anaheim with him, and he looks like a shell of himself from 2022. Texas might have their way at the plate, so I like taking the Over for this AL West battle.
