One of the bad things about the shortened 2020 MLB season is that it doesn’t take long to get out of the playoff race. That’s where the Angels (4GB) and Rangers (5GB) will find themselves soon without a turnaround.
The Angels are big favorites coming into Friday night’s matchup as Texas has dropped three in a row.
Los Angeles Angels
LAA doesn’t exactly exude confidence as they are 3-5 over their last 8. That includes back to back series losses to Seattle and Houston before taking 2 of 3 against the Mariners over the past week.
What the Angels can do is put up some runs. Joe Maddon’s team is in the top 10 in baseball putting up 5.08 runs per game. That includes a 9-game run with at least 5 runs.
So Friday’s starter Griffin Canning looks like he’ll get some run support from the Angels offense. The second year pitcher may not need many after allowing just 1 ER over 6.0 IP to Houston on Saturday.
Are the Rangers about ready to call it for 2020? Texas has dropped 5 of their last 6 and just gave up 17 runs in being swept over 3 games at Oakland. All six of those games were on the road though – but Texas is just 2-3 at home.
On the bright side the Rangers did go 10-9 vs. the Angels in 2019. Of those 19 games the run differential was just Texas +2 so these two teams play each other pretty close.
Jordan Lyles will go vs. LAA on Friday He ended 2019 at 7-1 with a 2.45 ERA after going from Pittsburgh to Milwaukee but has served up 4ER over 6.0 IP over two appearances with Texas.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Angels are 6-20 last 26 Friday games
- Angels are 10-25 last 35 road games
- Over is 10-2 in Rangers last 12 as an underdog
