Sunday night baseball and I will have a Free Pick in the game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers, which will be played at Globe Life Park In Arlington Texas. First pitch is scheduled for a 7:05 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.
Over/ Under: 9 O -120
This is game 3 of a 3 game series between these American League foes. The Halos seem to be waking u a bit as they took the first 2 games of this series, while outscoring the Rangers 21-2 in the process. The Halos have now won 6 of their last 7 games and have closed to within 54 games of the Astros for the division lead in the AL West. The Rangers are heading the other way as they have won just 4 of their last 14 games and currently sit 6.5 games behind division leading Houston.
Los Angeles ranks 20th in scoring (4.00 rpg), 22nd in hitting (.246) and 10th in homers (83), while on the mound they are 10th in ERA (3.60) and 4th in WHIP (1.19). Texas ranks 10th in scoring (4.24 rpg), 21st in hitting (.248) and 8th in homers (88), while on the mound they are 23rd in ERA (4.13) and 27th in WHIP (1.35).
Getting the ball for the Halos tonight will be CJ Wilson, who is 6-6 with a 3.78 ERA in 16 starts this year overall, while on the road he has gone 2-3 with a 3.40 ERA. CJ is 1-2 with a 6.59 ERA in 9 career starts vs the Rangers, while in this park the last 2 years has gone 0-1 with a 9.70 ERA in 5 starts.
Toeing the rubber for the Texas tonight will be Colby Lewis, who is 8-3 with a 4.13 ERA in 16 starts this year, while at home he has gone 3-0 with a 3.57 ERA in 7 starts. In his career he has faced the Halos 20 times overall and 18 times as a starter and he is 5-9 with a 5.54 ERA vs them overall.
Pick: I will be going with the hot Angels in this one. CJ Wilson has struggled this year, but the Rangers just haven't hit lefties very well this year and I expect them to struggle to score in this. Colby Lewis has pitched well this year and is undefeated at home, but he has horrible numbers vs the Halos in his career and the Angels do have good success vs righties. The Angels have scored 21 run in their last 2 games and I just don't see the Rangers scoring enough runs to win this one.

NCAA Football Betting Pick: Utah vs. Arizona State
The Arizona State Sun Devils are coming to Utah for a Pac-12 college football match up in October and pro bettors Teddy Covers and Steve Fezzik think the timing, the altitude, and the competition will be just too much for ASU. The Utes' stadium is a high-altitude venue, and the Sun Devils are going to be in the stretch of a rough run of games including match ups with conference heavyweights USC and Oregon. With this away game sandwiched between these tough games and no bye week to help them rest and recover, the thought is Utah will be the team to bet.
