Angels vs. Rangers MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Larry Wallace: July 8th 2017

Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Betting Pick: Rangers -138 odds (July 8th 2017)

I like the Rangers here. Shortstop Elvis Andrus (paternity leave) and corner infielder Joey Gallo (hamstring) did not start on Friday, but second baseman Rougned Odor played though a hand injury and joined Adrian Beltre, Nomar Mazara and Jonathan Lucroy to supply Texas with all of its run production in a 10-0 rout in the opener. In addition to winning consecutive games for the first time in nearly two weeks, the Rangers (42-44) pulled into a virtual tie with the Angels (44-46) for second place in the American League West. Los Angeles has dropped four of five and failed to score more than three runs for the seventh time in 10 games – a stretch which includes three shutouts. Ross was unable to build on his best outing of the season but settled for a no-decision Sunday at the Chicago White Sox despite giving up four runs on four hits and five walks over five innings.

The California native enjoyed the finest of his four turns since coming off the disabled list on June 27, holding Cleveland to one run on two hits and two walks across six frames. Pujols is 1-for-10 against Ross, who is 1-1 with a 1.98 ERA in nine appearances (five starts) versus the Angels. Chavez was saddled with the loss for the third time in his last four outings Sunday against Seattle, giving up two runs on four hits in five frames – the fifth time in his last six turns he failed to make it through six innings. The 33-year-old hasn’t been particularly sharp on the road in nine trips to the mound either, going 2-5 with a 6.17 ERA. Beltre is 2-for-14 while Odor is 5-for-11 with a pair of home runs against Chavez, who is 2-5 with a 6.00 ERA in 18 appearances (five starts) against the Rangers. Beltre on Friday became the 21st player in major-league history to reach 5,000 total bases, while his three-RBI effort moved him into a tie with Hall-of-Famer George Brett (1,596) for 32nd place on the all-time list. Take Texas on the money line today for the win. Larry went 3-0 yesterday and had the 2nd best money payout

Red Sox vs. Rays Over-Under Line & Prediction from John Martin: July 8th 2017

Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays
MLB Over-Under Prediction: Over 9 runs -110 odds (July 8th 2017)

The OVER is worth a look today in this Red Sox/Rays showdown.  Rick Porcello has been awful all season, going 4-10 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 18 starts.  Alex Cobb has only slightly been better at 6-6 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 17 starts.  The OVER is 4-0 in Porcello’s last four starts vs. Rays as he has allowed at least 3 runs in all four starts and they have combined for at least 9 runs in all four as well.  The OVER is 6-1 in Cobb’s last seven starts vs. Red Sox.  They have combined for 9 or more runs in five of those seven contests.
