Texas +110 over L.A. Angels
8:05 PM EST. This is an angle that only comes into play a handful of times a year. The wager is to fade a pitcher coming off a no-hitter because it’s an exhilarating accomplishment that lingers on for days. Reid Detmers (RHP - LAA) threw a no-hitter versus the Rays last game out. A no-hitter by this stiff being unlikely is understating it by a massive degree. First, he needed 108 pitches to complete that game, where prior to that he had only thrown a maximum of 88 pitches. Despite allowing no hits in that last start, it still didn't qualify as anything but pure luck, as he only struck out two. In 11 career starts he has yet to throw anything resembling a gem with a skill set that is not even at a replacement level (4.83 xERA). Dude does not figure to last long here.
It matters not who is pitching for the Rangers but it is worth noting that the Angels lead the AL in most home runs hit and also most strikeouts. That is the epitome of feast or famine and Rangers starter, Taylor Hearn has struck out 29 batters in 26 innings.
Texas +110 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.20)
