Score: 4 - 7
Total: -110/+8 Over
The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels should easily combine to score nine-plus runs tonight. These are two of the best line-ups in baseball, and both Matt Harrison and Dan Haren are getting too much respect from oddsmakers here.
Harrison is having a solid season at 12-4 with a 2.87 ERA, but this is certainly one team he struggles against. The left-hander is 2-2 with a 5.09 ERA in six career starts against Los Angeles.
Haren is 6-8 with a 4.86 ERA and 1.408 WHIP in 17 starts this season, including 2-1 with a 9.98 ERA and 1.957 WHIP in his last three starts. The right-hander is 4-9 with a 4.25 ERA in 18 career starts against Texas.
The OVER is 4-0 in Haren's last 4 starts vs. a team with a winning record. The OVER is 5-1 in Haren's last 6 starts overall. The OVER is 3-0-1 in Haren's last 4 starts vs. Rangers. These three trends make for a 12-1 (92%) System backing the OVER. Bet the OVER in this game Sunday.
