Result: Loss

The books have set the bar too low tonight in this game between the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels. I look for a slug fest between two of the most potent lineups in baseball.

Jerome Williams is in line to get rocked tonight just as he has all season. Williams is 4-7 with a 5.27 ERA and 1.512 WHIP over 15 starts, including 1-5 with a 6.15 ERA and 1.537 WHIP in eight home starts.

Martin Perez hasn't been much better, going 3-3 with a 3.93 ERA and 1.405 WHIP in nine starts in 2013. He has been at his worst on the road, going 2-2 with a 6.00 ERA and 1.519 WHIP in five starts away from home.

The OVER is 5-0 in Angels last 5 games with the total set at 7.0-8.5. The OVER is 4-0 in Angels last 4 overall. The OVER is 9-2 in Williams' last 11 starts as a home favorite. The OVER is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings, including 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles. Roll with the OVER in this game Monday.
