Angels/Rangers Set to Clash
American League West Division rivals are set to meet up on Wednesday night as the Texas Rangers host the Los Angeles Angels. Each team has been able to pick up a win so far in this series, but neither game has been very competitive in this MLB action.
The Los Angeles Angels come into this game with an overall record of 53-54, but this has actually been a disappointing season. Los Angeles has gone just 2-3 over their last five games, and they just haven’t been able to put it all together.
Texas is one of the worst teams in baseball this season, and they were big sellers at the Trade Deadline. The Rangers are just 39-68 on the season, and they are going to be entering another rebuilding phase beginning next season.
The betting line for this game at BetUS Sportsbook is the Los Angeles Angels -175 over the Texas Rangers.

Ohtani on Mound For Angels
Even though the Angels have been a disappointment this season, Shohei Ohtani has provided a reason to follow along with this team all season long. Ohtani will make the start for Los Angeles on Wednesday night, and he remains one of the top pitchers in baseball.
Ohtani has posted a 5-1 record this season to go along with a 3.04 earned run average. The Angels are still being careful with his workload on the mound, but he has been dominant at times this season.
The Angels have been a solid offensive team for much of the season, and again it has been the two-way sensation leading the way. Ohtani leads the team with 37 home runs and 82 RBIs and has a history of homering in games that he starts.
David Fletcher has also been hitting well for the Angels, leading the team with a .303 batting average. This Angles team won’t need to score a ton of runs with their ace on the mound Wednesday night.
Rangers Not Scoring Runs
Texas has really struggled at the plate so far this season, and that was when they had Joey Gallo in the everyday lineup. Gallo led the team with 25 home runs this season, but he is now a member of the New York Yankees.
Adolis Garcia has been a pleasant surprise for Texas, and he leads the team with a .254 batting average to go along with 63 RBIs. Texas is one of the lowest-scoring teams in baseball betting, and they are going to struggle to find enough offense in this game.
Kolby Allard is making the start for Texas in this game, and that hasn’t usually worked out well for the Rangers. Allard is just 2-9 with a 5.23 earned run average, and he could be in for a long night facing the Angels.
LA Wins Behind Likely MVP
The Angels still have some serious flaws on this roster, but all of that seems to go away when Ohtani takes the mound. Ohtani has lost just one start so far this season, and he is not going to get beat by the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
Texas has been a poor offensive team throughout the 2021 season, and their biggest bat is no longer on the roster. Don’t expect the Rangers to put up much of a threat in this game, and it could be a game that gets out of hand in a hurry.
Los Angeles blew out Texas on Wednesday night, and this should be a repeat of that matchup. Bet the Los Angeles Angels -175 over the Texas Rangers in this AL West rivalry game on Wednesday night.
