MLB Free Pick | Rangers at Angels
We’ve been running hot with our free picks, going 7-2 in our last 9, including last night’s loss when the Raptors stunned the Bucks in Milwaukee. Tonight I’m heading out west where the Texas Rangers are a heavy underdog at +150 when they travel to play the Los Angeles Angels.
Game: Texas Rangers (24-23, 27-20 ATS) at Los Angeles Angels (22-27, 28-21 ATS)
When: 10:07 PM ET, Friday, May 24th, 2019
Where: Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Anaheim, California
Current Line: TEX +150 ANA -160 Total: 9
TV Coverage: MLB Network, FS Southwest, FS West
Probable Pitchers: Drew Smyly (0-3, 6.51 ERA) vs. Griffin Canning (2-1, 3.80 ERA)
The Texas Rangers are currently second in the AL West, 7 games behind the front running Astros, who may just wrap up the division in August this year. The Angels are 10 games back, but have lost 4 in a row and 7 of their last 10. The Rangers are 7-3 in their last 10 and have won 7 of their last 8.
JOEY GALLO IS A BIG REASON FOR RANGERS POWER SURGE
Although Smyly’s numbers on the season don’t look great, he’s allowed 2 or fewer runs in two of his last 3 starts, although he hasn’t pitched into the 6th inning this season. Canning is making his 5th Major League start, going 7 strong his last time out against the Royals, allowing no runs while striking out 5.
Canning vs. Smyly has to be the reason for the Angles being such a favorite.
I think MLB oddsmakers got this one wrong. Not only are the Rangers the much hotter team coming into this one, they have a +14 run differential this season, as opposed to the Angels at -16.
Witht the Rangers current play, along with the Angels 1-8 record in their last 9 against the AL West, I’m taking the great +150 odds the Rangers are offering.
MLB Free Pick: Rangers ML +150

The Reds picked up a big win over one of the best teams in baseball last night, and definitely a team that comes in near or above the top-five in most power rankings. Last night was a close game and yet another run line loss by the Astros, who happen to be 38-34 against the Read More…
