Los Angeles Angels (Jered Weaver) +127
Texas Rangers (Yu Darvish) -137
Have you paid attention to just how good the LA offense has the potential to be? Poor LHP Matt Harrison figured it out on Saturday, as he was a part of a lousy pitching effort by the Rangers. DH Albert Pujols blasted off twice as a part of a four-home run day for the Halos, and he was also one of the five in the lineup that recorded two hits. OF Josh Hamilton hasn’t even logged a hit in this series against his former team yet. However, where the real advantage comes on Sunday for the Angels is on the mound. RHP Yu Darvish looks like he is the better of these two starters, but we have a real issue with Darvish already in this series. He threw 8.2 innings of perfect game ball before giving up a base hit in his last start. Throwing 111 pitches this time of year really isn’t all that great to do in the first place, and the fact that it came in his very first start of the season is all the more alarming. The edge here clearly, in our eyes, goes to RHP Jered Weaver, who only threw 95 pitches in his first start of the season against the Cincinnati Reds and really looked good in doing so. Go with the Angels on Sunday Night Baseball for the series winning victory in Arlington.
