The Rangers have finally been able to find their way over the five hundred mark on the year and they have looked very impressive in how they have done it as the Rangers have went 4-1 in their last 5. The downside is on the road the Rangers are sitting on a 7-15 record and now have to try to pull out a win against an Angels team that has improved quite a bit.
The Angels are looking to break a losing skid they have been on. What is even worse for the Angels is the losing streak started with a loss to the Royals and did not change against the Twins and those games were at home. The home field for the Angels has saw the team go to a record that is 13-12 on the year, but the Angels are still a team that has had a lot of struggles on the year.
One aspect that could hurt the Rangers chances of winning is Drew Smyly the starting pitcher here. He has an 0-3 record on the year with a 6.51 ERA so far. He has thrown a total of 27.2 innings this year striking out 31 batters. He has walked 20 batters and allowed 28 hits, 6 of those were home runs.

Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels -167
The Angels have been somewhat impressive at home at times this year. However, the Rangers are coming in with a chance to really pull out some extra wins, but on the road the Rangers have been horrible and with Smyly on the mound it will be a lot for the Rangers to overcome and they simply will fall short. Final Score, Los Angeles Angels win 6-4.
