Los Angeles Angels
Tyler Skaggs is a former top 10 draft pick that despite his performance, will constantly get opportunities based on potential alone. From the moment that he started pitching in the big leagues in 2012 he’s been either average or just plain bad.
He missed all of the 2015 season with an injury and last year threw less than 50 big league innings. He’s already accrued nearly half of that total this season, but with mixed reviews.
His first two starts of the year were rough as he gave up 10 earned runs in 10.1 innings pitched, but he’s bounced back since then. In his past two outings he has reached seven innings both times, one of which was a shutout.
His ERA for the season stands at 4.44 but it’s possible that with only two earned runs over his past 14 innings that he may be finally reaching his potential.
Nick Martinez started the season in AAA but made his first start of the season over the last weekend. Martinez will hope to build on a strong performance in which he pitched seven innings and gave up only a single run.
The Rangers hitters, despite being tied for second in the league with homeruns, have struggled from the dish this season. They are in the bottom three of the league in batting average at .219 and bottom 10 in the league in OBP.
Their offense has been buoyed this year by the long ball, but as the homeruns go, so too do the Rangers.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Both pitchers are off of strong starts, but just in the sense that Skaggs continues to get opportunities due to his potential, he’s the safer bet in this bet against an unknown quantity in Martinez.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 9.5
The over/under seems high despite the fact that both pitchers are relative unknowns from a success standpoint. But I believe that Skaggs could be onto something and the lack of tape on Martinez could allow for his success as well.
