VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Saturday’s Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels game.

MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Angels have seen their season go down the tubes. They’re 15-40 in their last 55 games and will look to get their offense ignited on Saturday vs. Texas Rangers.

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels (-115, 8)

The Rangers give Glenn Otto the start, who’s struggled to a 4-7 record and 5.37 ERA, surrendering at least three runs in five of his last six starts while averaging 4.7 walks per nine innings.

Rookie Chase Silseth gets his seventh career start for Los Angeles and will look to complete at least five innings for the second time in his MLB career, allowing at least three runs in four of his last five starts. He has a 5.87 ERA on the season, and opponents are hitting .315 off of him at home.

The Rangers are 26th in bullpen ERA since July 3, with Dennis Santana and Garrett Richards both posting ERAs over 9.00 the past 30 days. The Angels are 20th in bullpen ERA in the same span.

The Rangers are third in the American League in home runs per game on the road. They also average more runs score per game on the road than at home, plating 4.4 runs per game at home versus 4.6 on the road.

With a pair of young starters who have ERAs north of 5.00 and both teams in the top 12 in home runs per game, a slugfest will bust out in Los Angeles on Saturday.
